Thread: Land clearance shooting from high seats

    Land clearance shooting from high seats

    Been on to the met now for quite some time about trying to get someone out to have a look at getting this land passed off for bigger caliber rifle shooting from high seat , I've sent emails ages ago explaining what I want and why, i printed off the emails and sent them along with my fac when I put in for a one for one variation after being told to when I phoned asking what the delay was, when they got back to me about the variation and how much ammo I wanted to hold I asked them about the land check, she told me she couldn't tell me anything about it and couldn't wait to put the phone down on me ,( to say the least it is getting a bit stupid now and to say I'm fed up is a understatement) the land comes under Essex police not the met, so my question is this can I bypass the met and phone essex directly??

    Not sure if you can, but I'd give Essex a call anyway and see what they say. They are usually quite helpful (have always been in my dealings with them).

    I live in Warwickshire, when I first applied for for my FAC 2 of my permissions were in Leicestershire, and it was the Leicestershire Police who had to pass the land. If you have an open ticket it is not an issue, if you don't why not just ask them to open it?

    One day I want to be as wonderful as my dogs think i am .....

    Don't ring them, email them, much harder for them to make the rules up as they go if they know things are being done 'in writing'.

    What I have done in the past is to ring (making sure you note time and the persons name you are talking to), get clarification on what you want to know, then send them a letter stating what they have told you (i usually send this recorded). Then the balls in their court.

    You can always send all the history with emails along with each reply making it easier for them to see what your stating and the good reason behind a failing patience
