Thread: FAC arrived.

  1. #1

    FAC arrived.

    FAC arrived in the post,very painless experience, got everything I asked for.
    Just itching to get to the gun shop tomorrow and put a deposit on a rifle I've been admiring for a long long time.
    This will be my deer rifle,don't think I need to worry about somebody else buying it as it's forty nine years old but I really like it.
    So now the journey begins in earnest,so looking forward to it.

    Well done, now you have started on the slippery slope, you will buy your first gun and be really happy with it for about 6 months then you start thinking,,,, really NEED something else get another calibre, then you decide to start reloading, thats when you are totally lost, but it is something you will love

    Hi Wasteoid,
    Took just over two months in total,about two weeks from the FEO's visit.
    Dave 1973, not sure I can wait,but i've a lot of things to buy first,didn't want to start getting my kit together till had my FAC.

    Hi Ray7756,
    I know what you mean but have decided to try and keep it under control.The rifle I really want is in 7x64 brenneke so I am just trying to find one nice bullet and load for everything that I can actually find to buy,seem a bit thin on the ground but I'll get some.
    I have the use of my fathers reloading equipment so a set of dies might have to be aquired.And so it begins,digital scales,calipers,etc.
    Nothing you enjoy should be easy or you wouldn't enjoy it, I will just keep telling myself that!!

    Dear God.

    We've had the naked rambler. Now we've got a deer stalker in Speedo's

    PS. Have fun with your new gun.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.
