I applied for my FAC coterminous, back in December, finally today i receive a telephone call from my FLO saying i thought i should give you a ring as i had contacted the FL office. Which i shall add was after the 12 week period. I apllied for .22, .223 and 308. One reason was for target range shooting as im a member of a club, and the other reasons was for vermin control and deer managment. All with moderators.
I submitted a letter with my application stating that im range qualified and ex military and explained that i have no land permissions as such. But am seeking permission but not easy and also explained that i had my DSC 1 booked for April. Along with the letter i provided evidence of stalking that ive booked. In the letter i explained that most of my vermin and stalking is by invite and bought days.
Now the problem is, i think he is quite happy to give me the rifles for target shooting, but he has requested authorisation letters from the places i go stalking, personally i think this is wrong to ask a buisiness for a letter to say i have permission to stalk with their guide.
So no open ticket
When i asked why, he went on to say, it so we can work out what conditions to put on my certificate, also he didnt want to do my inspection and chat until ive done my DSC, which i also think is wrong.
I think if i had not rung the office, i think i would still be waiting for the call, and he would of been in contact after my DSC, my visit is now booked for the 22 April after my DSC.
What do you guys think, and do you think i should seek advice from BASC
