Finally got my FAC. The conditions state :-
“The .243 calibre rifle, Sound Moderator and ammunition shall be used for shooting deer and zeroing on ranges, or land deemed suitable by the chief officer of police for the area where the land is situated and over which the holder has lawful authority to shoot.
The certificate holder may possess, purchase or acquire expanding ammunition, or the missiles of such ammunition, in the calibres authorised by this certificate and use only in connection with:
A) the lawful shooting of deer;
B) the shooting of vermin or, in connection with the management of any estate, other wildlife;
C) the humane killing of animals;
D) the shooting of animals for the protection of other animals of humans.”
When I applied for my certificate I asked stated the rifle was for the use of “ Deer stalking, vermin and fox control, zeroing and practice”
Can anyone answer these questions :-
Does my FAC allow me to shoot vermin and fox?
Are vermin and fox covered by statement B?
And am I able to “practice” on an approved range?
Thanks in advance.
