Going back to the original post, in the UK, if you have an air rifle on your “ticket” (license) it will have its calibre specified (which is what you requested at the time – hopefully). If you want a moderator then this needs to have been specified on the application as well. Assuming it’s granted, you can then get yourself an air rifle of any power greater of than 12 fpe  in the calibre you have permission for.

​As mentioned elsewhere the Police have to have good cause not to grant you permission, but a 120fpe .303 for squirrels is probably going to be frowned on, and getting multiple “slots” (guns) of the same or similar calibres will need “good reason” e.g. night vision and a day vision set ups would probably be acceptable, assuming all other criteria have been met.
