Thread: Ammo allowance

  1. #1

    Ammo allowance

    I just asked strathclyde if they could up my allowance of 22 from 200 to 400. And was told only if my buying history warrants its increase. Is this right ?

    Yep, that's the norm, though 400 rounds isn't much in these parts, I'd be back and forth to the gun shop non stop at certain times of the year.
    if you make 2-3 purchasers of 200 in one month that should warrant an increase.

    The norm down with us is 1000 to buy and 1500 to hold, the variation between forces never ceases to amaze me!

    what is history got to do with anything.

    If I needed 400 then I would have applied for 400 then

    I dont I need them for future use not historical use.

    I jumped from 200 to 1200 without the "history". L&B saw no issue, I shoot a hell of a lot more now than I did then...history is exactly that

    Tell them they come in bricks of 500 and you want to hold 1000, should be no problem

    I put in for 200 .17hmr as I would not use a huge amount and my flo said that's not enough and put it up to 500 and could have double that if I wanted , upped my .223 and 6.5x55 as well yet I no people who come under cambridgshire 10 miles down the road who struggle to get there's increased and probably use 10x what I would do yet again goes to show the difference between areas crazy really.....
