We read a lot of complaints about various Firearms Departments, so as the title says, credit where it's due. I've just had a variation for my FAC granted while the certificate was in the process of being renewed. I got the variation through in a couple of weeks, and got my new FAC yesterday - the old one doesn't expire until 12 May. All the wording on the conditions if fine ("all legal quarry species" etc) and I can live with the quantities of ammunition and what they like to call missiles (!). So no complaints there.
