    Newbie East London

    Hello all, my names Dave been clay shooting and game shooting for around 18 months now and looking to get into stalking. Always been into shooting since I was a kid air rifles and .22lr when I was in the scouts.

    Looking to get my FAC and as I have no land to stalk over this will be on the basis of paid stalks. I'm going to book my DSC1 soon as possible as well. It would be good to get advice and possibly a bit of mentoring from you guys as this seems a great place for it everyone seems friendly!

    all the best

    Hello mate...
    my advice is join a club, get an FAC , start there then add your stalks to it
    there are some good local clubs to you, and if you don't mind travelling there are some great full bore clubs further out, with ranges like Colchester , Barton rd, Thetford , ect

    Welcome David!

    I'm also based in London, albeit out West, and have had an FAC for about 2.5 years.

    My advice would be to put together your case to apply for everything you want on your FAC, don't muck around with applying for target and then upgrading and so on. I've found the Met perfectly reasonable to deal with if you're straightforward and transparent with them. I've always provided them with all the evidence they need to set their minds a rest, and in exchange they've always granted me everything I asked for. Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss further.
