Well my FAC was up for renewal this year and runs out today. Now on phoning to find out how early to put it in i was told 8 weeks prior to the date on the FAC. So all documents were sent 1st November.
Week later a phone call from the firearms office to say that my ticket was being sent back and to give it to the officer who comes and inspect my Cabernet ect.
On the 18th December I had a visit from my FAO, all was well she came with a tempary ticket. As I use my rifles for work.
31st December new ticket arrived.
I know the police get some flack on here, but I have to say Leicester police were superb on turning my ticket turn around. It's a shame not everyone gets such good service.
