I've just been refused my open ticket, I have been told the officer responsible is not available to give the reason why. I have jumps through all the hoops that they have wanted of me to posses my newly acquired cf rifle, I have recently passed my dsc1, I sent them a signd letter from a mentor about my knowledge of safe back stops and use of high seats, I also sent a letter that was asked of me referring to the piece of land that I was intending to shoot on which was only passed for .223 the letter I wrote said I needed my license opening up for this bit of land and that I have put up high seats with good safe backstops and that I would be very happy to show someone around so that they could satisfy themselfs that every thing was ok, I have held my f.a.c for just under four years now with rimfires on. I've just got my f.a.c back and it is still closed.
anyone got any ideas why they have refused me and any ideas in my defence to get them to open my ticket up.
just a thought on why they put restrictions on land for different calibre's, surely a good back stop,ie (the ground) for a.223 would be a perfectly good back stop for a 6.5x55 or am I missing something here.
thanks for any info fellas
