    Get in touch with British Deer Society East Anglia Branch. A range day is held on the first Saturday each month.
    Cost 20 and lots of good company and advice on an excellent range near Thetford.....MBP

    Fingringhoe ranges near Colchester. They are used most weekends by clubs.

    Also look up clubs using the ranges at Barton Road on the Essex/Cambridgeshire border

    There's the Herts & Essex Rifle Club but they tend to be a bit shy of strangers. I'd try the Bassingbourn Rifle and Pistol Club http://www.brpc.org.uk/ranges.html

    My view to.
    It also begs the question how someone can obtain a FAC with permission to own and use a .22/250 yet have no land of their own on which to use it.

    , regardless of the original post, anyone who has satisfied the local plod that they are not homicidal, or manic depressive, can be granted an fac with or without land to shoot over............ just another strange anomaly of our odd licencing system.

    Essex are pretty good to deal with. I once had an 'open' cert for a rifle there without land. Granted i was also a member of a target shooting club but i did have deer on my ticket.

    Once i had land to shoot on, i then got another 2 rifles released.

    Gary -

    This will appear out of context now because I posted earlier and in error, plagued by finger trouble, and have now deleted that post, but you may want to consider how your signature appears to others on this forum. It might be tongue in cheek, but the implication that you endorse stealing things might not sit well with the people you are asking for help.
