What a lovely present to wake up to.
The postie had been and there was an official brown envelope from Notts police on the doormat - for some strange reason my heart sank, thinking I must have been speeding somewhere (clean licence so I don't know where that came from?).
After opening all the junk mail, I finally got round to the brown envelope and what a suprise, its my FAC!
The FLO (a very nice bloke by the way) intimated it would be another couple of weeks yet - hence my suprise
So obviously im off to my local RFD to have a nosey about! - although I can't afford anything until this time next month.
The conditions are interesting: (well to me anyway)
1. Land deemed suitable by the chief of police - which was entirely expected and appropriate until I have more experience.
2. Expanding ammunition for use in connection with....
a. The lawful shooting of deer
b. The shooting of vermin, or in connection with the management of any estate, other wildlife.
c. The humane killing of animals.
d. The shooting of animals for the protection of other animals or humans.
The conditions seem comprehensive, are these standard or have Notts been generous?
All in all it took 4 weeks to process - and that includes Christmas - so im delighted and impressed.
