Looking up the ballistics of both is hardly a difficult task.Interesting one this, when i applied for a 17 Fireball it was taking some time, so i spoke to the Firearms licensing manager on the phone who apologised for the delay as she had to ask one of her colleagues what the difference was between that and a 17HMR, the so called expert was on holiday hence the delay. This lady is a first class Firearms licensing manager and sits on FELWG
There are to the best of my knowledge no formal qualifications relating to the job of FEO.So it seems (so far) as I suspected. No one on SD has a clue as to what, if any, training or experience is required in order to be a FEO.
Northamptonshire were involvedThere are to the best of my knowledge no formal qualifications relating to the job of FEO.
I believe there was a course some years ago iirc it was reported in Shooting Times I believe BASC were involved in some of the content.
edit to add I believe only one or two Forces were involved.
This was a meeting with multiple forces (not all) & other agencies with regards to agreeing a consistent approach. The impetus to do so was regarding another matter regarding an operation over multiple force boundaries which i cannot discuss further. There was a surprising amount of agreement reached in a very short timeHi Loler is this information from official sources ?
I think we all know that and with a government like we have is it not surprising that they continue to do so at will with no checks and balances in place from the home office who appear unable or unwilling to control the chief Constables.Actually the police are making the law, it is blatantly obvious that HOG is being ignored or worked to fit what a particular fiefdom chief requires, are you all blind?.
