I would like to congratulate every one in the Kent Police firearms dept, that delt so quickly with my recent variation for a 308 + moderator, for deer and fox control. Met with my FEO on 10th Dec and had the variation granted and FAC back to me on the 18th. Got a call from Tony at HQ to tell me it was ready and asked if I wanted to collect it, due to the bad weather and Christmas post! Items now purchased and thanks to the rapid turn around I have avoided the new years VAT hike.
Bet we wont see service like this again when the budget axe falls! I guess that the civilian support posts such as firearms dept will be hit before front line officers:-(
