Its now coming up to nearly 5 weeks that Norfolk police have had my variation paperwork, when i sent it to them, i included a letter, saying i required my fac back by 23 Feb, reason being i want to buy the rifles at newark shooting show. But i hadnt heard anything or received it back so decided to phone them to find out what was going on, and was told it was handed over to the feo, and to contact him.
On my original fac, i have 308 223 and .22, i am changing the 223 to a 243 and increasing my hold by one rifle 17hmr.
Norfolk now want to come out and do a visit and a chat, which is next Tuesday. Dont know why really, as he was only out at my place less than 6 months ago.
He is now saying it might be a problem, because it has flagged up on there computer, that the household has to many guns in, and may require an alarm system and a visit from crime prevention officer to check the house security.
in total the house already has more than 10 firearms (not all mine) in it, and they knew this before they granted my fac in the first place.
I have sought advice from BASC, and they have told me it shouldnt be a problem, and to refer to the security handbook when he turns up.
But do i back down and install an alarm.
Has anyone any further advice.
Im not happy now thou, cos its a waste going to the show now as cant get what i wanted
