The following came down through the Club Newsletter. Our Chairman sits on this group.Thought this might be of interest to folks in this forces area.
You’ll be pleased to know that A&S are getting their ‘staffing’ issues sorted – which should
mean that Variations and Renewals are dealt with much quicker (maybe within 6
weeks) – Grants may still take up to 12 weeks. However, the constant reminder
from the Bureau is – fill the forms in correctly, provide the right details and get
them in, IN PLENTY OF TIME !! If you leave it until the last minute, don’t be surprised
when you get a knock at the door to collect your unlicensed firearms. A
couple of other items that were discussed; A&S are happy with e-mails to report
acquisitions and disposals (but they might not issue an acknowledgement of it’s
receipt, as yet). Also, if you have an unused slot on your FAC at renewal time (and
it’s been there some while) don’t be surprised if A&S seek to remove it.
