Thread: AOLQ in Essex ?

  1. #1

    AOLQ in Essex ?

    Has anybody in Essex got AOLQ on a C/F rifle ?
    Even a vermin condition on the .243 would help, but Chelmsford say not for a .243 as the RSPCA say it is "overkill"
    I am in the middle of renewal and have an open ticket at the moment if that makes any difference.

    I thought the Home Office wrote the Police guidelines not the RSPCA. What have they got do with it?
    Overkill? Apart from dead how much more dead can an animal be?

    no such thing as over kill ! talk to david at BASC. DID'T THINK RSPCA MADE THE FIREARMS ACT RULES UP !

    i to am getting the runaround by essex latest was thay are not applying the acpo on request you need to prove -when- why- how+ blood group ,shoe size then thay may look at your request but prob find a reason why its a no. essex has always gone for home rule on the firearms act ! Stateing that the C in C needs to aprove the amendment .ps i have an open cert with fox deer and boar but still can't get AOLQ so i shall apply for another rifle that is the min for short range fox around the barns prob 22 hornet.both my .243 has vermin fox and deer 308 vermin fox deer boar ! 17hmr vermin (other countys allow this for short range fox not essex ) .22 vermin .

    My issuing force is Essex , they are a pain in the backside , my .243 is down as my main fox rifle , i wish they would just use AOLQ as my conditions list is very very long (i have a few rifles) , although i would have to ask - vermin ? i take it you are not talking rabbit / rat / squirrel shooting with your .243 ?
