I have owned a .243 on an open licence for 16 years. I applied 8 weeks ago for a 1 for 1 variation to change to a 6.5 x 55. after speaking to my local FLO he said to send a letter in with my firearms licence and this should be enough. This morning i recieved a letter from hampshire police requesting a full application and land form to be filled out before they proccess my licence, is this right for a 1 for 1 variation and should i have to start from scratch again.
As you can imagine i am hacked off, my new rifle has been with my RFD for the last 5 weeks.
Any help would be appreciated.
