  1. I think it is only some counties that ask you to do this now, I did not have to to do this on my previous FAC renewal.
  2. That's what i thought, I have tried to contact my FAO I will try again tomorrow but wanted to see if anyone had encountered this problem before
  3. Hello all, I wonder if any of you have had any experience with this..... I am in the process of renewing my FAC/SGC and as part of the process I have to write to my GP to ask him to send a medical report to Kent Firearms dept. I have written to my GP twice now using the generic letter that is enclosed with my FAC application form. I have no problem paying for the report but when a invoice landed through my letterbox for £128 ! I was shocked to say the least. I presume as soon as I make payment then the medical practice will send my report of to the FAC dept. Wh
  4. I agree with the other guys, great little gun, Cheap to buy and built like a tank. Enjoy !
  5. Hey Mike, Unfortunately i am in Kent but thank you for the kind offer and advice. Happy shooting Nick
  6. Hi I am thinking about buying either a Kahles Cbx 2 - 12 x 56 or a Swarovski Z4i 2.5 - 10 x 56 scope. I wondered if any one had either of these scopes and their opinions on either one / I have nt had the chance to see either one as yet and i know it could be down to personal preference to which one wins it. I think i am right in saying that they are mad in the same factory as Swarovski but is there much difference in quality or performance or would i be paying that little bit extra for the Swarovski name! Nick
  7. Evening all ! I have a 17hmr and am looking to replace my scope with a better quality one possibly a kahles if schmidt. I do a lot of lamping so i want something that sucks as much light in as possible so a 50 or 56 scope. My question is should i go for a variable scope or a fixed ? i have always have variable in the past just curious to what you guys think or can suggest. Many thanks, Nick
  8. Thanks Tegater, Thats interesting what you said, what i dont understand is why removing the moderator effects the rounds zero as the round has no contact with the moderator !
  9. Hi All. I have a 17hmr, last night i turned up at the farm where i shoot and saw a Rabbit as soon as i arrived, i quickly loaded my gun , I did not bother to fit the moderator due to time and i was nt shooting and i did nt intend to shoot in that pert of the farm so was not worried about noise. I took aim and pulled the trigger but just missed the rabbit, I thought this may be due to excess oil in the barrel from cleaning. My friend tells me its because i did not have the moderator fitted to the gun,( my rifle was zeroed with moderator fitted) my question is does a moderator e

  12. My FAO didnt like the fact that I wanted to store 1000 rounds so he let me store 750 and buy 500.
  13. I used to have a ASE Utra on my HMR, great silencer very quiet, a pain to clean and heavy but very robust. I exchanged the ASE utra for a wildcat whisper about £120 which is a a very similar design to the DM80 an over the barrel design light weight and very easy to clean. To conclude, very pleased with the whisper
