Sorry to be posting the same question as is asked so often, but I couldn't find an answer in the FAQ at the top of the page.
My first FAC, for .22LR, included the words "...may be used on land deemed suitable by the Chief Officer of Police for the area where the land is situated, and where the holder has permission...etc etc..".
No query there. Clearly closed.
When I had it opened it was changed to simply read: "..may be used on land where the holder has permission...etc etc"
No query there either. Clearly open.
Now, I've just had my certificate back after variation for .243, and the conditions for the .243 reads: "...may be used on land deemed suitable for the use of this type of firearm, and where the holder has permission..etc etc.."
No mention of the Chief Officer of Police. So, is that open or closed?
Maybe the BASC team can give a definitive answer? (I am a member )
