    Got my letter from the police about my license application finally, its still a no despite the interview going well. Disappointed to say the least but I'll be applying again next year some time.

    @Angus ask your ao what you need to do to prove you are a responsible person and when you can make another application.it maybe as simple as joining a hunting or shooting club and showing how responsible you are. keep your head up and keep your eye on the prize. you are going in the right direction you have a job and are willing to learn from others that to me is a big plus and things like giving up smoking shows willpower and determination.keep heading forward and good luck with it next time.

    I find it frustrating because the reason they declined me was due to a call to lifeline, I used the service for what it's for and I got help. Why am I being punished for doing the right thing?

    don't let it bother you .you have done the right thing now you just need to prove to the ao you are on the right track because you did the right thing. keep the good attitude and they will see that you are someone that can be trusted and of good character .keep the goal of getting your license in front of you and good things will happen sometimes it takes a bit of time. what you are doing will come around and convince them if you keep working at it. going to a club and hunting with others will show them just keep your head up @Angus_A

    For those of us old enough to remember, the audio story 'war of the worlds' has just started on Brian FM.

    Which would have placed him 5 years after the original radio recording... Which we now know, neither is true.

    @Angus_A Mate I'll give you my number if you like-you call me anytime for a chat. we'll work it out.
    I know I'm not qualified but at least I'll listen to you. That way it isn't on the books for next time. If I think you are that dodgy I'll tell you so.
