WHat would be the legal ramifications be if I had another one when out shooting and I had to go in an ambulance and leave my guns with my mates .
Yes a mile from the nearest house, no mobile phones nearest call box a mile and a half away, wasn’t a good day for any of us. I have to say that both the local police (Wiltshire) and our local force were very good and dealt with it in a very sensible and sympathetic way. Obviously they were concerned that my friend’s rifle and the ammunition that he had on him at the time were secured but after establishing who I was and that I had a FAC they handed them over to me for safe keeping and arranged for a temporary permit to be issued the following morning. It was one time that I was grateful that I had my FAC with me.
