Right my FAC variation is on the way back to me apparently. Lancs were happy with me doing my DSC1, they have put on a mentoring clause but it seems very relaxed, having spoken to one of the firearms staff, they have agreed that my mentor just needs to be happy that i am on top of the safety aspect of shooting my rifle and that can be done zeroing/fox or deer work. Whether it only takes a couple of trips out for the letter to go in they will be happy with that.
They have requested this as apparently the DSC1 does not concentrate on practical safety, only on classroom based questions about legislation.....lol....news to me!!! I will wait till i have done it and send them a polite email just pointing out that it is incorporated in case they didn't know that??!!
Now i just have to wait for the right rifle, i will post in the wanted section...
