I rang Devizes yesterday and asked if I could see someone to check my documentation before submission and was asked when I'd like to come in!
I went this morning, had two rifles taken off, two 'authority to acquire' put on and a few freehand entries brought up to date and a new FC issued.
Total time from submission to receipt in my hand all duly filled in amended ELEVEN MINUTES!!!!
How about that for an efficient turnround by Wiltshire Firearms Department.
