My stalking partner returned his .243 Mannlicher to the RFD on Friday as the stock was cracked. Sportsman Gun Centre state that it has to go back to Austria and the delay may be significant.
He called my this morning to say he wouldn't be able to come out to play and I offered to loan him a .308 and called the FEO Mr David Wood on his mobile at 11.50am. David checked with HQ and we were asked to be at HQ with covering letters, £26 and a variation form for 2pm.
Doreen (very friendly and smiling)meet us in the foyer and 19 minutes (yes 19 minutes) we were in the car homeward bound with a variation.
Thank you Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary and in particular David Wood and Doreen. Absolutely phenomenal service.
