I am in the process of renewing my FAC and am experiencing a bit of conflict with my FLO concerning quntities of ammunition that I am authorised to possess. I don't want to be obstructive or unreasonable but by the same token I don't want my trousers pulling down.
The FLO is trying to enforce the 200 and 250 rates as per clause 4.8 of the Guidance Note. I am putting forward an argument based on clause 4.7 and 13.28 that individual shooter's circumstances need to be taken into account particularly where home loading is concerned and as a compromise I'm requesting permission to hold 600 in each of my centrefire calibres. I currently have permission for 900 each.
I'm in contact with BASC over this problem but I'd be interested to hear what levels of permissions you all have in centrefire calibres so I can gauge if my request is reasonable or not. A simple list from each of you stating calibre alongside amounts allowable to purchase and to possess would be ideal and whether you have target shooting as a condition on your certificate.
Thanks and regards,
