As above really. I have been told that I can't expect my local police force to process my FAC application till September at the earliest. Probably more likely October in reality.
I am keen to get my DSC 2 underway as there are a number of opportunities that require me to have it. My problem is that as it stands I have never shot a Uk deer (done a few Impala) and feel that even though Iv shot a load of foxes and am experienced with rifles, in the Police eyes isuspect that they are going to want more proof.
Therefore to not kick my heels whilst I'm waiting and to productive I thought maybe I could just enrol for dsc2 and start doing the portfolio collection from scratch to not only get DSC2 but also keep police happy. Obviously this would involve paid stalks and use of their rifle.
What at are people's thoughts on doing it this way? Wise or not? I'm confident in my shooting ability and butchery.
