Hi all, i will give you my situation....i am going to apply for my first fac and putting down for .22 and .243.
I am 25 have no criminal record or experience in stalking/larger calibers. I have been out many times with my dad his .22rf both day and night. I also have plenty of experience with shotguns and also own an air rifle. My dad has his fac and has asked the land owner where his is passed for and he says there is no problem for me to have permission also.
Before i send my papers in i am hoping to have an outing stalking to have an insight/experience for when the officer comes to my house.
My reasons for applying for 243 is it is the smallest caliber legal for deer in uk and hopefully i would have a better chance of having it passed.
What do you lads think my chances of having it granted??
