Its official, bad news, Simon Vann has left Lancashire Firearms but the good news is that he has now joined BASC to fight for our rights and offer very good advice.
Lancashire are now down to a mere 2 FEO's and they are going to have to work harder than ever whilst watching a backlog get ever larger.
Ive only had dealings with Simon once but it was a very good, professional meeting to discuss calibre on land use. He has a wealth of police proceedings and a vast amount of shooting knowledge that he can pass on in his new role at BASC.
No idea if he will ever read this but I for one would like to wish Simon all the best in his new role fighting for our rights and advising BASC members.
I don't know how long applications will take in Lancs from now on but I bet its not going to be a quick thing.
