    Smile Shared 6.5 x 55 advice

    I have just been granted a 6.5 x 55 on my ticket which I was hoping to to put down my mates as a shared rifle to save on the cost
    but my fao says I have to get my own. I am unsure why this is all he said was to what until my budget allows me to buy my own
    ​pansy advice would be welcome

    I share my rifles with my son. He has them on his ticket as guns he can borrow with make, model and serial numbers identified. I see no reason why your feo should say you cant do it.

    Although I have plenty of my own I have a condition on my certificate that allows me to borrow and use all the firearms that are on a pals ticket. No specific rifles or handguns are specified. Very simple and easy.

    Sounds like your feo needs some training , 'sharing' of firearms / shotguns between two certificates is commonplace - for a variety of reasons .Ask him to put his reasons in writing why he is demanding such and to back that up with the relevant section / para of the firearms acts ,or just bypass the numpty and go straight to his superior.

    Like Mulac I share all our rifles, .22 , .243, 25.06, 30.06 with my son. When he left devon & cornwall constabulary area he transferred to the Met'. That's when the fun started. They are arrogant conceited ignoramus' of the highest order. It took him & BASC two years to be able to shoot a fox with 25.06 and a deer with .243 !

    "Not specified" - that doesn't sound right!
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Non the less that what it says, it just names him, his certificate number and the constabulary that issued it. I have also had Two renewals with it on.
