I 'd thought I'd share a positive experience with Cumbria firearms licensing. I sent in my FAC asking for a variation (243 for 22-250), more ammo and, breath held an "open" licence. All three requests were granted in a 7 working day time period. I've been stalking for just over a year, and gained my DSC1 in March. Cheers Cumbria for the speedy turnround.
