Just got a call from a pal. He has an open FAC but sold his guns a year or so ago as he wasnt using them, but intended to buy another when the time was right.
He got a call from FLO and was told....if you dont have guns you either have too... Surrender your FAC or apply for a variation (at cost per gun) and then buy new guns....ie £26 per gun I think?
Now the last time I checked (and as in Shooting Times last year) you dont have to buy a gun to have an FAC.
Also if you have an FAC and you have the slots for specific calibres you dont have to apply for a variation to purchase the same calibre again? Correct me if I am wrong but we can sell our riflse and buy another as many times as we like at no cost with regards to my FAC, ew can also do one for ones at no cost too??
