Thread: Adding a shotgun licence when you have a FAC

    Adding a shotgun licence when you have a FAC

    Hi

    I have held my Firearms Certificate for around 14 months now and would like to add a shotgun licence as I have attained some goose flighting options with a syndicate place I have taken up. It will also give me options for shooting over my hpr.

    Do I have the option of requesting the shotgun licence to be coterminus with my current FAC, either to expire at the date of my FAC expiry or alternatively for the FAC to start afresh from when the shotgun licence is hopefully granted? Or must I simply pay the 50 for the new shotgun licence and do a joint coterminus appliction when my FAC expires?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    Mike

    I think the SGC must synch with the fac.
    You may lose out on length of time the SGC is valid for but you just have to take the loss.

    i did this when applying for me sgc shortly after getting my fac. As a result my sgc will finish a little early, but will make it more convenient (and cheaper) when renewing.

    +1 you might lose a bit on sgc, i allready had mine so i waited for my sgc renewal then got my fac cotermineous,

    Alternatively, what about a fac shotgun?

    Don't mind losing a bit on shotgun to be honest, just trying to work out best option

    Good idea and worth considering but may limit the value / saleability over an ordinary shotgun.

    Yes, that was my thinking. I need to sync the renewal process so just wondered if anyone had the genius solution! lol
