Thread: Surrey FLO? Any experiance?

    Surrey FLO? Any experiance?

    Hi all,

    Just sent off for my first FAC and asked for a .308 as I have reds to shoot. I have got DSC1 but not much rifle experiance, too ambitious?

    Can anyone tell me what the Surrey FAO is like and what questions he is likely to ask? Got a feeling I might be hit with the 'mentor' condition due to lack of experiance.

    Will depend on what experience you have.

    Have you had a centrefire before?

    Not sure what surrey are like, but I was granted .243 and .308 on my first application (before i did DSC1) with some restrictive conditions of course.

    Andy - Never owned a gun before - first application.

    Mike - was this recently? And what conditions did you get?

    It was last year around march I think. Conditions were closed cert (so had to have land passed for suitability) and a condition that I had to be accompanied by and experienced shot (not a named mentor but anyone with a open FAC).

    On passing DSC1 (after having the fac about a month) the accompanied condition was removed.

    I like my guy, he is very helpful and pro shooting. With no firearms experience you may well end up with a mentor condition.
    .308, because if I want to watch something run away, I'll take my dog for a walk.

    Recently got my FAC through. No mentoring conditions (may be military experience). Got the usual conditions of Land suitable etc. Its all good. All this in 19 days.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Hugh - Any idea how long Surrey are taking to process applications?

    Hi RR,

    Last August,I received my certificate from Surrey within 20 something days. It was my first FAC, it came with a mentoring condition too.

    Good luck with the meeting.
