Well my newly varied certificate finally arrived this morning and a waste of time and money it was too they have totally missed off one rifle from the to be acquired which is deliberate, two rifles which I no longer own are still in the certifiacte. It still has 30-06 Exp ammo yet the rifle has bee removed from stalking to be replaced with a .308 yet no expanding ammo for a .308. They counted my .270 Bullets (components) and low and behold my new holding allowance is actually less that I have in stock............................... I wonder why that is .
Nearly every calibres ammunition allowance has been reduced and only two of the things asked to be done have actually been done and this has taken them nearly three months to cock up. I have highlighted the omissions, errors and missing items and will get it photocopied and now the matter is going higher. We shall be contacting the shooting body I am member of for their advice and also taking it with our MP. The Lincs Police are always harping on about shortfalls in budgets and that they need more money from government and the tax payers.
My view is their budget should be cut drastically until they can actually proivde a worthwhile service and do the job properly. Why should we fund such incompetant idiots is beyond me
When one of the managers EVENTUALLY phones me, no I won't be holding my breathe on this I shall tell them that they can send the FEO out to collect the certificate as after all it's their cock ups, purposeful I might add, that have required it to be returned. I am expected to either drive 80 miles to return it or use registered post yet they send an unsigned ticket with open slots through the normal mail. So much for security!
