I'd appreciate opinions on this.
A colleague of mine is applying for his FAC.
He lives in rented accomodation, so cannot install his own cabinet.
He asked if he could store his rifle in mine.
So I emailed the police to ask if this was acceptable, and exactly how this would need to be recorded on out respective FACs.
The return email said that would be fine - I would just need to apply for a variation to add his rifle (.22LR) to my FAC. Under reason, I was to put 'storage for colleague'.
So we submitted our applications. And then the FEO phoned up and told me that was unnacceptable. I could not get a variation to add an additional .22LR to my ticket because storage for colleague was not good reason. We must get a separate cabinet installed in my house for his rifle.
Foolishly, perhaps, I agreed, and that;s how it will be.
But the more I think about it, the more angry I get. What would have been the best reaction here?
