Can anyone out there help me with this problem? I appiled for a variation to my certificate at the start of August. I then applied for land permission to be entered on my ticket in September. I renewed my FAC at the start of October, and asked for an open license. During all this time the police had my license. After jumping through hoops to accomadate the police, I am still unclear about what I may or may not shoot and where! At one point I was told that my FAC would be partitioned as the use of 308 would be excessive for the land permission I had and would be entered as 'closed' on my certificate!
The wording on the FAC reads thus:- The .243 and 7.62/308 rifles with sound moderators and ammunition to which this certificate relates shall be used only for deer and fox control and for zeroing over land deemed suitable by the Chief Officer of police for the area where the land is situated and over which the holder has permission to shoot with that class of firearm from the person by whom the shooting rights are owned or from whom they may be leased or otherwise obtained. The firearm(s) may also be used for zeroing at a range suitable for the safe use of that class of firearm and with adequate financial arrangements in place to meet any injury or damage claim.
Now does this mean that I have an open license or yet again, have the police balls'd up again and wasted my time money and respect?
Thanks for any help you can offer on this matter.
PS I have left out the four times that they sent my FAC back with loads of mistakes on it and the endless phone calls and letters I have sent and made to get them corrected.
Please can anyone help
