1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Hi all, i am just waiting for my Fac licence. I have only asked for uprated air rifles as this is all i need. My question is , my FAO told me i can use my FAC air rifles any where that i have permision to shoot! I understand about a closed licence for 5 years . Are uprated air rifles not subject to this?
    Thanks

    I've heard of some forces giving open conditions for FAC air on grant, so perhaps Dorset are one of them.

    Read what is says on your FAC, don't trust the world of anyone who is in a position to deny saying anything in a court, or who's words make no difference to the law. Many forces do grant an open condition straight away for an FAC air rifle.

    No one can use any gun where they don't have permission, this is called armed trespass.

    As mentioned above your FAC conditions will give you all the info you need.
