Re: Licencing - muskets etc.

Just been advised not to buy a gun cabinet before i get the Ok to the FAC? Surely if i dont own a cabinet at home they wont issue a FAC? Admittedly the rifle will be for club use at present since cant find any permisions near me taking on new shooters. So i could store the rifle at the club in there...

Re: Licencing - muskets etc.

I’m looking at getting a .22 rimfire for rabbit hunting and possibly a black powder pistol for 17th Century re-enactment. I presume both would come under a FAC but which is the easier way to get the FAC? Are the police more forgiving if I asked for one for a 17th Cent doglock or would they accept a ...

I usually do 17th Cent but have one event which is the Victorian Christmas at Portsmouth dock yards so need some ideas for cheap Victorian kit. The kit doesn’t have to be 100% authentic but just look the part since most of the other people there will be in modern stage costumes but I don’t want to b...
