I have to give a very up for the licensing office at Chelmsford.
On Wednesday at around 4pm I dropped my certificate off with a request for a variation to allow me to buy a .243.
Told them I was happy to pick it up and save the postage, also that it wasn't urgent, towards the end of the month was fine.
Phone call at 9am this morning "your licence is ready to collect"
No fuss or drama no mentor and no closed condition, well done to them I say.
And a happy me
