Two questions for you -
I bought my sako 75 new form the local gun shop, it was already threaded. I now wish to shorten the barrel 2 inches and re thread it. I have been told that it would need to go away and be re-proofed - is this correct? I do not intend selling it at this point in time.
I sent off my firearms and shotgun certs for renewal as one on the 17th JAN - i received the forms on the 12th. I phoned the local firearms dept two weeks later and they confirmed receipt and someone would be out to see me. I phoned again last week and explained my licences expired on the 3rd March and still no one had been out. I received a message later informing me they would be out on the 8th. Needless to say I will be w/o a current licence shortly. Is this ok considering I have submitted my renewals on time and the police admit they have a back log of work. I do not like the idea of using a weapon w/o a current licence in my possesion. Advice please.
