Morning I was wondering if anyone could answer a question that my FEO could not?
10 days ago I submitted a variation request to my local force asking for 2 rifles and 2 moderators(1 FAC air rifle and 1 .222) be removed and a .223 rifle and moderator added. My FEO stated that it should be dealt with as a one to one variation but to send a cheque in case and if no payment was required then this would be returned. I did all this and was told it would be processed in a matter of a few days.
on making an enquiry into the progress of my application this morning I was told that I actually asked for an increase in weapons so they would need to process my application accordingly!
Have I by asking for a .223 to be added technically asked for an increase?
Like I said they are add adamant that it's an increase but could not explain in English why that is!
Any thoughts or suggestions?
