I don't think we should pay for the doctors or the police to issue the SGCs. Doctors are already paid for by our taxes and licensing is enforced under the idea that it protects society at large. Well, if it's for the benefit of society at large then society at large should pick up the bill.
What we we need is a decent lobbying group with some balls. Not all this BASC crap about 'currently nothing in the legislation, blah, blah, blah.' If they took the fight to the authorities and actually campaigned for shooter's rights I'd donate money on top of the subscription.
We get walked all over as shooters and it is wrong.

If they can't be understood or understand lives are at risk!
Family member was charged £50 recently and advised that it might take the practice a few weeks to actually get round to signing it! If you're going to charge that then at least provide a decent service in return. The police sent him the medical letter to take in person(??) to the doctors (this was despite no relevant medical issues on the application or otherwise). Meanwhile I never heard anything about mine at all, it all went through and certainly no charge.
RE Cost of a round of clays- It would cost me about £45 for 100 in terms of clays/cartridges, excl everything else- so you're not far off.

i dont know if this helps but i refused to pay my fee was 35 pound but took heed of basc advice and told them i wouldnt pay (as i'm sure this has been mentioned) for a sec2 ticket if the police have not had any information from the doctors in 21days they proceed with the licence anyway and as long as you have no shady background you have nothing to worry about. on a side note i had some criticism by other shooters because i refused to pay they seemed to think i was doing the NHS out of money they were ill informed as its a private practice and was a charge issued by the practice not the nhs so to quieten them i went to my local cottage hospital and made a donation of £40 i didnt have to was more of a point to make to them that it wasn't an issue of the money was the principal
