My renewal letter came through last week for my FAC and Shotgun, forms included. They were due to expire mid july. I got the referee's to sign my form on thursday and they also posted their part of the paperwork/signed photos on thursday. I submitted my paperwork on friday at 3pm, the FEO phoned me at 4pm and asked if i was available the following monday afternoon for a visit. Yes i was available. He came bang on 2pm and having phoned my referee's earlier on in the day it was just the home visit to go. After a quick chat about if anything had changed since my last renewal and discussing granting me more ammo to hold/purchase for home loading it was a security/serial number check. All ok. He told me to keep hold of my certs until i got my new one around early july, then just post the old ones in. All over in half an hour and in a very pleasant manner.
