I had a chat with the super intendent this morning. He just wanted to speak to me before granting the licences for my .243 and .17hmr.
He was grand about the hmr, but wanted to make sure I knew what I was talking about with regard to the .243, and that I knew the difference between a safe and unsafe shot. I have to say he was dead sound to talk to, and shook my hand and wished we the best of luck with my new guns before I left the station.

That's the sort of interaction I'd love to hear more accounts of.

Great news, and the Super sounds like one of the good ones. Level headed, judges the application on it's merits, and fair.

Well done.

Well it's after gettig me all excited about getting them. I can't wait to take them up to the range and see what they're capable of, especially the .243 after seeing what other lads did with theirs at 600 yards

That's sound of him infairness actually interacting and talking to people to make his decision. Rather than just rejecting it like most.

Best of luck with the new rifles

If Carlsberg did superintendant interviews Seriously though. This is the way all licencing interviews should go. Based on carahcter and merit and form.

Sounds like your super is a rare breed Declan, it would make the whole process easier when they are that approachable.

We've got a super in enniscorthy. The previous guy, Supt. Finn was excellent IMO, does anyone know what the new guy, Supt. Carolan is like.
