Thread: worse than useless

    worse than useless

    got my permit back today after 3 months of waiting, (which is quick in ni) only to discover that there is no mention of deer in the conditions for my rifle. I had appled for an air rifle as well as a change of condition to allow me to take deer, as i have got all the particulars needed and have finally got i piece of ground. they never contacted me, checked the ground or gave any grounds for a refusal (if i have been refused) but they have put the airrifle on my ticket. this isnt the first time my permit has been messed up.
    would drive abuddy mad

    i suggest you ring them up and just tell them what has happened they should be able to sort it out, i recently applied for a .243 and i wasn,t to hopeful about getting it as i already own a 270, but much to my surprise after a 7 week wait and a short letter giving good reason for a second deer rifle i got my fac back now i thought that a very fast turnaround. perhaps try your feo first, good luck

    3 months?! Bloody hell! You must know the funny handshake. Might not be an issue. My .223 was permitted for vermin over here and Roe in Scotland but one of the conditions stated "Only to be carried in Northern Ireland while in transit to or from a port." When my RFD took the permit up to Lisnasharragh they said that the vermin conditions permitted vermin over here and that condition was only in relation to taking it to Scotland
    The labyrinthine wording of our FAC may actually be the problem, not a refusal.
    ......or possibly a numty at Lisnasharragh.

    my feo rang down to belfast and the guy said that it was unclear what i was applying for
    a letter explaining that i was wanting deer control as a condition, 2 letters from farmers with permissions, dsc certificate and 3 different ways to contact me and they decided to send me back my fac without any explanation
    have been told to write another letter explaining in a clear manner what i want and send it and fac back to Lisnasharragh
