    Could he not just use a .410 or .22 r/f if they,re are refusing to issue pistol licences .2 people i know say as long as you get "humane"dispatch as a condition its far easier than the hoops to jump through for a pistol

    I know for certain that statement is not entirely true.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    As it happens they won't even condition his rifles for humane despatch.But that is not the point the law says it is legal for him to have a section 5 for humane despatch

    If they won't condition his rifles for humane dispatch it must be for a very good reason and it certainly wouldn't be right to allow the use of a pistol.

    Is he an inexperienced shooter?

    Sounds like appeal to the Chief constable and Police cheese on the grounds they,re violating Home office guidelines by refusing a genuine request with no legitimate/legal reasoning behind their stance other than we dont want to ,good luck
