You would probably find that quite a number of licences have been issued under "Personal protection" banners. Just as vets can get pistols and also for the humane dispatch of deer.
BASC have been instrumental in overturning refusals for dispatch of injured deer.
It would be interesting to find out just how many FAC's are in existence for pistols.
