When I was interviewed for my FAC I couldn't demonstrate sufficient experience of shooting small game with firearms on open land so I have a "restricted" ticket limiting me to shooting over land which the chief plod deems suitable. Apparently putting holes in Fig 11s on Sennybridge doesn't count as shooting over open ground! Two and a half years later I'm getting a little tired of shooting the same land (which is cleared) and would like to try some other areas. I've not been through the process of getting land "deemed suitable" - what do I have to do and is it an easy or tedious exercise? And what do I do to demonstrate that I'm now competent and get myself onto an "open" ticket?
