Thread: just an idea

  1. #1

    just an idea

    just a idea i had maybe its been dscussed before

    why cant they make a fac, shotgun certificate like drivers licence plastic card for when you are out and about shooting it would be much simpler and easier to carry these in your wallet rather than the a4 sheets of paper we have just now ??!


    and on another note does the new forms for grants renewals etc apply in scotland aswell?

    I have photo copied my top part of my certificates and shrunk them down to a credit card size. Then cover with sticky backed plastic (Blue Peter anyone!)

    never carry my FAC on me ....always left in the truck. If plod wants to see it they can accompany me back to truck

    Depends on the officer stopping you and the circumstances and attitudes of yourself and the officer as to how pedantic they want to be. I've been stopped without any paperwork on me. A quick PNC, and certificate check and a "thanks very much, have a nice day"
    No problems

    if it was done with chip and pin dealers could notify all purchases straight away
    Give instruction to a wise man and he will be yet wiser

    It makes sense to modernise things a little . With buying ammo and guns it would be a bit handyer
