    best thing to do is go have a chat with your local office as they differ from place to place on amounts and styles

    good luck!!

    an FAC form can be picked up at your local RFD or police station.

    an airgun that is over 12ftlbs MUST be registered as an FAC gun (firearm)

    you are allocated what is called 'slots' these are the amount of guns you can apply for at any given time (there is no limit to how many you can apply for/own if you have 'good reason')

    a moderator as we burners call em (silencer) uses 1 slot

    so for example, an FAC airgun and a moderator = 2 slots

    you must have 2 referees who can vouch for your character and competence
    also required is passport photos (all this info is on the application form)
