:yes: :thumbs:

 

Ok Cheers, I see where you are coming from!

 

Seems reasonable, the only possibly slight counter argument (I'm not suggesting it is a good one) is, First grant, No experience...here's a .308 because the land is cleared for it! :hmm: :hmm:

my thoughts would be. you either deemed responsible enough to hold an fac or not as saying theres a difference would imply that different levels of responsibility are required for each calibre, would that mean a lad with a rimmy is deemed to be less responsible than a bloke with a 308 :hmm:

As I said, but we live in the real world, and not all regions share our view!   We hear tales of calibre restriction/mentoring all the time due to perceived lack of experience!

therein lies the problem firearms licensing is not standardised across the country and is subject to interpretation of guidelines.

I know what you're saying Dek, it's just as Paulus said, in an sensible world, the guidelines would be statutory for every force in E&W.

 

Deerhound, go out and buy one of these - http://en.wikipedia....en_Loudenboomer

 

Give the licensing manager a heart attack.  It is after all, just a .22 Rifle.

LAD with a rimmy and a BLOKE with a .308

 

simple fact is. you are either suitable or not for the granting of an fac. its the grey areas that have got us into the mess were in now, stick to black and white across the board, what makes a bloke with a 308 more or less capable of owning it than a lad after all theres plenty of lads in war zones
