Thread: Renewal and purchasing firearms

    Renewal and purchasing firearms


    I just wondered something, I have just got my firearms back from renewal but it is not valid until May the 4th. With it they also sent back my old certificate. Now my question is I have different firearms available to purchase than on my old but currently valid licence. They originally took my firearms during renewal for this reason. So can I purchase the new rifles on my new license or do I have to wait until it is valid in terms of start date.

    I think you are going to have to wait my friend.

    Thanks for the replies, I thought this might be the case but wanted to check. Only 4 weeks to wait and counting

    Thank your lucky stars that you have your renewal completed before your old FAC runs out, not the case with many people on here.

    That is very true! Sussex police have been excellent of late for fast turnaround of renewals and variations.

    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent
