So, imagine you are an FEO, you recieve an application, all boxes ticked, he has permission to shoot on land of 1000 acres in a remote area away from housing that has been previously cleared for .375H&H. His referees are not FAC holders and don't have any criminal record, when you speak to them they say that the applicant is safe and reliable and in their oppinion fit to hold a gun. You arrive at his house to be greeted by a skinhead who is dressed in full DPM and has BNP tattooed on his knuckles, he has the SAS emblem tattooed on his arm. He lives on his own, his house is clean and tidy but you notice that all his reading material relates to special forces and far right politics. The house is decorated normally buy there are a lot of military style collectables dotted around, various shell casings and replica hand grenades etc. He appears fairly normal to speak to and has a good knowledge of shooting safely.
What do you do?
And if you recommend refusal will he win an appeal?
Just interested, there is a lot of slagging of FEO's on here, I wonder how easy their job really is...
Not sure what I'd do..
And if the above description is you, I'm not having a go just throwing up a little talking point..
