so you might get a passport insurance scheme, a passport magazine/website, perhaps an advance payment scheme, a collective body with numbers that are a sum of it's parts, and one media voice (assuming the numbers were large enough to support it).
I'm all for it & the concept is good,insurance backed,data base possibly carrying your relevant governing boby number eg BFTA in my case ,national insurance number for personel identification & picture , rifle serial numbers.Proof that you are serious competitor & shoot safely.
We have a similar thing in Contracting the National Safety Passport & CSCS ,all logged back to a data base,good idea in principle as long as it doesn't turn into a money making racket as the Safety Passport & CSCS schemes have.
