Thread: moderator confusion (wrist slapped)

    moderator confusion (wrist slapped)

    had my wrist slapped today

    aparently in 2007 when i bought my 243 rifle and mod i should not have been sold the mod. it is a t8 in .30 calibre. my ticket stated it should be a .243 i told the lady concerned the t8s come in two sizes up to .24 cal and .30 cal so it was impossible to get one to match my ticket. spoke to the shop i bought it from and they said they used to just write full bore mod on the ticket to save confusion but now they have to be calibre specific.

    confusing or what

    regards pj

    My mod for my .223 is actually for up to .25 as well.
    But my FEO said not to worry, but when you sell it you can only pass it on as .223 mod ?
    Seeing as it listed on my ticket as no make, no number and no calibre I think he's wrong, all I need do is
    pass it on described the same way.

    Three blind mice.... Again. more demonstrations of rules & laws made up as they go. Mrs Finnbear's ticket is in for renewal, since 11th April, ran out last Monday, still no new ticket, & temp permit refused, as "not needed" "You'll be OK if you are stopped, they can check up from your EXPIRED one"

    That last sentence seems like common-sense to me !
    To issue temporary permits would only make the wait even longer.
    Providing she has not been a naughty girl it will appear eventually.

    Aye , I know what you mean.
    Mine is in at the moment for the 60 year holding from 1951.
    I popped a `freebie` .243 on as well to get more value for my money and to keep me legal when I re-load for other local miscreants.
    They told me I will not receive a clock for 60 years safe and meritorious service to the shooting community because of the cuts !

    It's something I've been saying for years, the magnetic strip on credit card could easily carry all the relevant information, even if it was to be in two parts like the driving licence, i.e. you carry the credit card bit with you but take the paper bit into RFDs for buying rifles, ammo and mods etc.

    I carry a typed laminated card in my wallet with the FAC No. and permitted weapons on one side and my Shotgun Cert info on the other side.

    I like the Idea, but not all outlets or RFD's hav a credit card facility to read it or if the card reader went down that may cause a few upsets especialy if you hav travelled a good way to purchase your goods and the machine has broke .... Teething probs I know but maybe in time a credit card system may be the norm
