I will like to apply for a .223 or a .243 for deer stalking but as my land is not to big my FEO has told me I can only have .17hmr but he told me if I can find a bigger land to shoot on he will give me one no problem.I was reading on the BASC website and came across to this (]If you cannot name a piece of land but wish to shoot with a friend or as a paying stalker etc., it should not be a problem, although some police firearms licensing departments will try to turn it into one. It is best to contact BASC under those circumstances) I have two friend that I go shooting with and one of them has a permission to shoot on 400 acres and the other one just over 400 acres. Can I apply for a 223 or 243 under this circumstances and say that I will go shooting on their land with them or I will need permission from the land owner as well. Just want to know if anyone has tried this and got approved. ( Bare in mind I live in LINCOLNSHIRE and I have been told that they don't give FAC very easy). Any comments very much appreciated.
