You do hear a lot of stories about poor service, excessive licence restrictions and delays from FLO's around the country but I dont think much is said to thank the staff for what they do deliver on.
So with that in mind I just wanted to say thanks to Hampshire for turning around my coterminous SGC renewal/FAC grant so quickly this week.
I know they are under the cosh with clearing their backlog of paperwork at the moment and I had a few months wait from submitting the forms to my home visit (and they were always very polite and helpful when I spoke to them during this time), however I had the home visit on Monday morning and by 8am Wednesday morning I had both certificates in my hand! Fantastic service there!
My local FEO is excellent, the conversation was sensible and constructive and as a result I have .308 plus moderator granted, deer, fox and AOLQ, expanding ammo, target shooting and 250 rounds.
Scope is already ordered and will be delivered today (Swarovski Z4i 3-12x50), and as I'm off work next week I think I might spend a day rifle hunting!
