You can apply for a firearms licence online Tahir - do you want me to find the page? It will take me two clicks

Best thing would be to join a gun club for training would it?


Joining a rifle club is good for your application anyway - speeds it up a bit as a rule. But you still need the land or authority to shoot bunnies in order to be able to buy hollowpoint ammo.

Coaching often costs a few quid - 50/hour is not uncommon. I'd be happy to offer coaching for free if this weekend happens.

Hi Frewen, yes please. Been meaning to get round to this for some time, and might as well do now.

If someone can provide the land, I have a .22, a .223, a 6.5x55 and a .308. That should keep us occupied for a while.

Gil - being in Scotland and having different laws from England/Wales I don't know what juristiction you fall under or what procedure you will have to follow.

Which constabulary covers you? I'll see what I can find.

Dumfries and Galloway. Hadn't realised you were giving Tahir the Essex link - thought there might be a central web point for downloading info/forms. Point taken about Scotland - it probably will be different up here.

Yeah spoke to a friend who shoots yesterday and he said a .22 rinfire would be better as it wouldn't need such accuracy, a body shot would kill. So dunno what I should be doing really.


That's what I said a few pages back. I'm a member of a rifle club that shoots on an indoor range. You do meet other people and after you've been checked out and serve a probation period they will act as one of your FAC references. You are shown what to do etc although most of that can be picked up in a few hours, we also had to go regularly before becoming full members. I'm not sure if you would get the time, perhaps a days course might be more suitable.
