    FAC advice for a new member

    Surely the lay out of the land is more important!

    Variation questions

    17hmr isn’t less than a 22lr in my opinion, hornady 17hmr 2550fps 245ft lbs energy cci stinger most powerful 22lr round puts out 1640fps 191ft lbs energy so a bit more difference in energy so by no means less.

    Variation questions

    Your totally correct, but you still have to prove good reason to have a 17hmr, unfortunately your piece of land is only cleared for 22lr bizarrely so you have no good reason to have it. It’s strange how it’s only cleared for 22lr, how big is the land? Is there any danger areas ie footpaths, roads, houses? My land was never cleared for anything and I had 22lr 17hmr 223 I only found out this when I asked for 243 and my Feo wanted to come out and ***** the land as it hadn’t been cleared for anything lol go figure. You may be in the same boat?

    Variation questions

    Sounds to me that your land is only cleared up to 22lr mate, 17hmr is a more potent round.

      Bigger safe or two safes?

      I sold my two 6 gun cabinets and purchased one large cabinet, it was a pain for me with the narrow doors on the smaller cabinets. Now I can open the door with the larger cabinet and not worry about dinging any stocks.

      243 variation dsc

      Follow up from what has happened....... i called my Feo and asked him to take my variation off hold and to carry forward with the process, I also told him that I have spoken to basc and considering I already own a centrefire (223) for x amount of time, myself and basc would consider myself a safe shot. if I am to be refused I would like it in writing so I can then forward on to basc legal department. all went down well and my Feo was a really nice guy about it all, I can’t fault him one bit really as he is only doing what he is told to do. its been a week so far so how long I have to wait I don’t know. thanks for all your input, I shall keep you in the loop.

      243 variation dsc

      Thank you for all your comments they have helped me out. think I will stick to my boots on this one and call the Feo and ask him to take my application off hold and continue the process. I know within myself that I’m a safe shot and if I wasn’t safe they would not have issued me with what I have got. im a full member of basc and I have called them and they are saying exactly what you guys are ie dsc 1 is not needed or mentoring and muntjac is classed as deer. He also said get your refusal in writing (if you are to be refused) and we shall take it from there as with your membership you are entitled to legal aid if we need to start court process.

      243 variation dsc

      I wonder if any of you guys could shed some light on my situation. I put in a variation for 243 for deer and to cut a long story short my Feo was asking me for dsc or mentor and then he would approve the calibre as it’s not his decision as the people in the office ask for such on a deer calibre. I already own a centrefire (223) so was took back by his answer as I’ve already been shooting deer muntjac but apparently that deer specie is recognised by the police as vermin and not deer!! My question to you guys is do you think that this is fair? I don’t have a lot of money and to do a dsc1 is out of my league at the minute and as for a mentor I don’t know anyone with such calibre. I’ve put my application on hold for a week to decide on what path I wish to take.
