  1. I told my girlfriend I got my Nitesite NS200 for £80 second hand, it was actually £550 new.
  2. Im in the process of filling out my FAC application and im looking for some shooting land within 15 miles of Lisburn. I will be using a .22 rifle and intend on shooting rabbits, crows, magpies, pigeons, etc. Im a 29 year old self employed tree surgeon/landscaper and im a member of the BASC and im fully insured. Im willing to pay £300 to £500 per year for a decent spot, preferably over 50 acres. If anyone knows of anything please let me know.
  3. Thanks guys, how many acres did you have on the land you put down on the application?
  4. Im in the process of filling out my FAC application for a .22 rifle. When I was buying the gun the dealer (tannyoky guns and ammo) gave me the forms to fill and said I needed to get permission from at least 3 landowners. However on the FAC guidance booklet I got it states you only need signed permission from one, im finding it quite difficult getting permission from suitable land as apparently I need areas of at least 100 acres, and getting just the one permission would be a lot easier than 3. What do you think?
  5. My gf lives in Broomhedge, about 2 miles from Moira, that's where I would like to get some land to shoot on. Im a bit reluctant to go door to door as I don't have any experience with hunting yet. Ive been doing archery/crossbow/airgun shooting for a few years but havnt done any real shooting yet. Do you think this would be a problem with getting permission?
  6. Hi everyone, ive just got into the sport of shooting and have recently put down a deposit on a second hand Ruger 10/22 .22 rifle. I am in the process of filling out my FAC application but im finding it hard getting suitable shooting land. Has anyone got any advice for me? Thanks, Chris.
