Thread: Mentor for FAc application

    Mentor for FAc application

    I have been asked to act as FAC mentor for a local landowners son and need to put
    together a letter for his FEO.

    Does/has anyone here acted as a mentor before and have a sample letter, or any idea of what
    wording the FEO requires?

    Try reading this thread:

    Firearms mentor/supervisor letter to licensing Police Force..

    looks fairly straight forward

    Hope this helps

    Has the lad any experiance of firearms.I can understand police wanting to know he is safe but in law provided he has good reason to own a firearm, he should not be required to have a mentor.This is getting all too common FEO,s sholuld be pull up on this.

    Stav, how about writing in to them stating all of the above and pointing out that the mentoring condition is achieving nothing and also inconveniencing you. Maybe ask them the reason why it has to be in place. It will cost you nothing and might get it lifted sooner rather than later.
