I am in the process of applying for a FAC, I previously held an FAC but chose not to renew it in the late 80's.
On my application I listed the places where I will be using the rifle, two of which are areas that I have bought the shooting rights on. Another one is an estate that I have shot on this year and another 2 are areas that I intend to shoot.
The liason officer has called me to arrange a home visit, he has asked me if I have bought a safe yet to which I replied are you going to give me a license?.
Secondly he didn't like the fact that I had listed so many places saying that they would all have to be checked out and this would entail using other police forces. He told me that there wasn't an open license as such and that for the first 5 year period I would be on a probationary type license after which I would be allowed to go anywhere as I would be more appreciative of what the land requirements are.
He also told me that I could just list the areas that I have bought the rights on and that providing the other areas had already been approved for stalking previously then I would be able to shoot on that land.
Is this correct?
Thanks in advance
