grant for .308?

Recommended Posts

I just got granted my FAC and purchased my .22 last week. I have since been offered a .308 for free from a friend as he has no use for it anymore. I have just started work on an estate that shoot a lot of deer so a having a use for the rifle is no problem however Im just wondering if the fact I have only just got my certificate last week will count against me getting a big calibre rifle?

I imagine that is the Scottish equivalent of DSC so yes. Is there someone on the estate who could monitor you? You have good reason for the calibre, but the law is fussy about safe and humane shooting of deer. If you have the basic qualification and someone to see you through the first few months you should have no problems.


ATB with the application - you jammy sod. Free .308 indeed.
