    North Yorkshire Firearms

    Exemplary Service

    Sent in for a new EFP and enclosed paperwork for latest rifle last week, they rang on Thursday to sat they needed my FAC to add the rifle to the "travelling through an airport" condition so I sent it by "signed for" on Wednesday afternoon.

    Arrived back this morning (Saturday) complete with new style EFP which is in the style of a FAC - hope the Europeans recognise it as an EFP!

    Very impressed - especially with a hand written note apologising for the inconvenience caused, they really do seem to be on the ball in North Yorkshire, they did the rifle variation in 5 days which included posting time.

    Nice to hear that North Yorkshire are providing a very good service! I think other forces need to take a long hard look at themselves

    They have been consistently good, helpful, efficient and polite over my 16 years dealing with them.. I had a variation processed last week and the I was without FAC for 48h.. And most of that time it would have been in the post!

    My FAC has condition 7 ... The (All required rifles itemised) and ammunition shall be carried when proceeding to or returning from a port of embarkation... then follows usual about zeroing in Great Britain

    First appeared about 3 years ago, must be linked to EFP issue.

    You need to post an introduction when first joining the forum.

    Is this condition on your Fac for a rifle that you can not use for hunting in the UK ??.
    My fac is 3 years old and has no conditions on it about port of embarcation . Just woundering what the point of this condition is?

    All of my rifles are used in the UK, I can legally walk round Heathrow ( or any " port" ) carrying a weapon covered as usual without fear of having an issue with security. Most of my travelling companions have this condition, you may want to query it with your FLO. I certainly didn't ask for it, North Yorkhire tend to be on the ball.

    I'm another North Yorkshire satisfied customer.
    On my last renewal everything happened at the right time with my application returned to them in good time. No new certificate arrived and I was getting a little concerned. On the day before expiry the new one landed, all correct and no drama's.

    Thanks North Yorks Police and by the sound of things on here and similar forums you could do with coaching/mentoring a few other police regions!
