^This.

I have an issue with M4 style semi-auto's (and straight-pull) and ear cans (MSA Sordin Supreme Pro-X) and this hunched down style feels horrible, and in the case of a mate's LMT, I just can't even see through the scope, and his is on a riser as well!

No wonder I don't like style modern firearms lol

I'd happily shoot .22rf outdoors with my moulded-active CENS in-ear plugs which I use for shotgun shooting, as I can't seem to shoot shotgun's with any of the can ear-pro's I've ever owned, if I had to.....but as I have a GSG Stg.44, I can shoot that OK wearing the Sordin's.
Would you not recommend in ear for indoor shooting?

I use my in ear set (obtained from boots as I've used the same before) indoors when shooting .22 because our indoor ranges are a bit small and steel lined, I tend to use over ear too if shooting 9mm / 45 etc in handguns. 44/38 etc in underlever etc rifles is fine to use only the in ear.

if shooting rifle type chamberings I tend to pop the over ear on again. especially if someone is shooting something obnoxious that has a pressure wave that smacks you in the face.

Nottinghamshire Police Suspending FAC grants

#26 Post by Triffid »

I picked this up from another thread. . .

"Nottinghamshire police firearms licensing have currently suspended the grant/variation process as from the 1st March 2022". (https://www.nottinghamshire.police.uk/a ... -licensing).

Bearing in mind that the Police are required to issue a FAC if the applicant meets the suitability/need criteria (the Regulations say that a Firearms Certificate shall be granted), is the suspension of the service legal?

What Home Office requirements mean reduced staffing?

"Please Note
As a result of Home Office requirements following the tragic events in Plymouth we have reduced staffing capacity until further notice. If your query or request is not urgent there will be a short delay in addressing it. We thank you for your patience."


Also seen this. I have not seen this for a variation before.

"Club attendance - all applications or variations must include a letter of club attendance to expedite the process."

I wonder if it is time to take firearms certification away from the Police to a specialist organisation?
Regards
Peter.

It should of been taken away from the Police that knows nothing about firearm ownership years ago.
