I have submitted a "one for one" variation for my 243. I`ve bought and paid for my new set up and my Howa 1500 was used in part exchange.
I received a phone call from my firearms dept asking if i still had my Howa, to which i replied yes.
I was told i have to dispose of the Howa before my variation would be implemented, which would be about 7 to 10 days. It seems that temporary lisences are no longer issued unless the circumstances are exceptional.
So at the moment i am grounded.
This may be a bit of a heads up for anyone who only has one rifle of a deer calibre.
