  • Cat C doctors letter, what to write??

    Hi guys I just came out of surgery where I had my scaphoid removed and doctor is happy to write me a letter but he is unsure what to write if people have gone through this process in the past could you please send me a PM for what you had written.

    Kind regards

    I think a mate of mine has medical documentation.
    Hopefully I'll see him next weekend, I'll ask.

      Whatever you right, be careful, a few people over did the letter and lost other categories of licence and firearms, as the relevant authorities deemed them unsafe in their hands due to physical restrictions.......

        Good point.

      something like this?
      keeping it short and to the point- but not ruling out bolt action firearms?

      "under some circumstances, the rapid operation of a bolt action firearm may cause pain and discomfort to Dan R, due to the surgery to his hand.
      Being able to use a self loading firearm instead of a bolt action firearm, when appropriate, would be advisable to prevent any pain, discomfort or further damage to Dan R's hand".

      Hey Dan- are you a shotfirer? [going by your avatar pic.]
      How did you stuff up your hands- too much hard work/ injury/ osteo arthritis?

        Hey Dan,
        Is there any particular thing you're thinking about.
        Ie. shooting clay targets where a high volume of 12g shots in a day would aggravate the injury.
        Or are you needing to replace a bolt action rifle for competition use or pest control?

        If you can deal in the specifics of why it is required, I think you'd have more sucess than trying a broad catch-all approach.
        That said, it might also limit the scope.

          Yep; this ^^^^^

          Mate of mine is getting back into shooting clays after taking a long break after '96. In the meantime he's undergone a partial shoulder reconstruction due to a motorbike accident and has now found that after shooting only a couple of boxes of shells out of the U/O his shoulder is aching & takes a good week to recover, so all this seems hardly worth it for a quick round of 25 clays.

          It was actually his specialist who suggested that he use a semi-auto 12ga in combination with reduced-recoil target shells since the lesser recoil will minimise any pain and further shoulder damage. The doc also worded the letter in a similar format suggested in the quote above (stating that repeated recoil from 100 rounds or so out of a break-action 12ga shotgun is the issue) so that FAR won't look at denying him his Cat B centrefires on the grounds that he gained his Cat C due to a medical condition that asserts that he cannot take any heavy recoil whatsoever and therefore can't take the recoil of a couple of shots from a .30cal rifle. Application is still being processed so I'll report back here with the verdict.

        Hi guys thanks for the replies

        It is for Cat C shotgun for clay target due to the constant battering of the U/O will cause me massive grief and pain..

        I am lucky in a sense I shoot pistols with my opposite hand strange I know..

        I will write a letter up and pm it through to you guys and see what you think

        Yeah mate it is work related, I am a Shotfirer well up till now I don't know what is going to happen with the wrist its a waiting game to see if it heals enough to allow me to get fully back into it, my work is being good about it though and I am taking the time to uptrain myself into less physical positions ie training and assessment..

            This will be interesting to know. I always though you were allowed only one. Dunno where I got that from though.

          Yeah I was led to believe that as its for competition use a second was allowed in case the 1st fails
