    How to create a fairer and more effective system - Increase the price!!

    https://www.gov.uk/government/news/h...licensing-fees

    Released onto the Home Office website yesterday.
    Marvellous political speak to justify an inefficient and poor service.
    Pay more for less - that's about the level of it.
    Just got Poll Tax bill for the year and that's gone up as well. Another case of pay more for less.
    Could only ever make sense in government land.

    its only fair and effective if it was the same rules for everyone,but its not you only have to check through threads on forums like this,according to some they monitor these things ,well they must be pissing in their chairs laughing at people struggling every day to get what they pay for, but its like everything else thats legal and licensed we are screwed over because we have to pay xxxx amount to stay licensed , if they tripled the fee we would pay it because the only other option is to fold up,

    We pay about £20 for a gun license. Lasts for as long as you have the weapon. No 5 year renewall. A license for each gun you own and credit card size. No limit on ammo purchased.

    over here you pay 80quid cotermineous wait a few months bend over get shafted then if your lucky and you win the office draw that week someone lets you know your shiny peice of papers got lost or theres a few things missing that you didnt really need anyway? and its on its way so now you can go and stand in a field and wonder what shootings like because youve been waiting that long you forgot what to do, or better still you haven,t any ammo because your press seized up from lack of use and the factory stuff acts like its coming from a skeet gun,! god i wish i lived in sweden, but i love it!

    My Thoughts....Typical, the ugly bird says they only collect in 27% of cost but the quotes for long enough is way over the odds and they come in with a price that is a lot less than first quoted and all the clowns shout Yeah thats fine and dandy, WELL NOOOOOOOO, what about some people get a good service and others don't, if we where ordering something over the internet or in store we would be told roughly when we are going to receive the goods but with FAC and SGC it's like the bleedin Euro lottery buy your ticket and hope that its a winner out of a possible 35,000,000 tickets sold. Even the Figs don't add up, 50 pound is 27% so what is 100%, certainly not the quoted 88 pounds for someone with just an FAC and why should this guy pay for the upkeep of somebody elses SGC etc, variations etc etc etc, I worked for the Govmnt for 20 odd years and when it comes to costing there are always catches in all costing (how much does it really cost, is there anyway we can add a bit extra to divert to something else, Happens all the time in all Govmnt departments as well as outside industry) Are they Trying To Price the ordinary person out of shooting and i know a few of them that scratch there erses from month to month and Ultimately Have Less and Less people owning legitimate Firearms and Shotguns. There are so many issues still not been answered and if people don't question Say See You Later To Your Firearms etc eventually. It is also a possibility that will find that most of the ministers etc are being pulled left, right and centre by the various ANTIS (league against cruel Sports, RSPB, SSPPB, the list goes on and on) Sorry about lengthy rant.....or is it You decide......

    I know it's been a static figure for a while now, but is there any other area where costs have risen 50%+ in one hit without strikes/civil action /general socialist whining?

    How many of you complain about poor service? If you all put equal energy into that rather than the forums it might achieve something. However seek the advice of your shooting assn like BASC so as not to show your @rse in public, the language you use must be balanced and reasonable.
