Probably a bit of a silly question but I thought it best to double-check! I'm going to be sending off the paperwork for a variation for a .243 very soon (hopefully tomorrow or day after ), just waiting for a land permission form (646) to be returned to me from a gamekeeper. The FEO will definitely pay me a visit in person at some point during the variation process won't he? I'm sure that's what they do but wanted to double check - the reason being that I'm going to be informing them of various stalks I've been on/experience I've gained/DSC1, and thought it's maybe best to apply for the variation as normal and then bring these things up during the conversation when he visits, rather than send it all in?!?
As in, as far as they're concerned I will have applied for a .243 and they need to check my good reason and my suitability etc., then when they come round I can present them with my DSC1 and some references from people who have let me join them on stalks, and hopefully that will put me in good stead.
Don't know if I've explained that very well, please say if it's a bit confusing!
Any help is much appreciated
