Thread: dropping in on the North Wales Police firearms office

    dropping in on the North Wales Police firearms office

    I have a one for one variation I need to send to NWP. Anybody know if you can just drop it off in the office?

    All mine go in to Winsford by hand, I'm sure North Wales must have staff in the front office.

    No idea. I just put stuff in the post. Their response time is pretty good - have had a letter by return on one occasion.

    Talking if NWP, does anyone have any idea how long they are taking with FAC grants at the moment?
    Are they suffering from the same backlogs as most constabularies?

    I have taken stuff in direct to the St. Asaph office a few times. Usually someone comes down to collect the paperwork. NWP firearms seems pretty good compared to some of the horror stories out there.

    When my daughter's application went in they told us to allow 4 months for 1st grant, but in fact she had her ticket just 2 months after her 14th birthday. I 'phoned from time to time to check progress, and it appeared that the initial processing and background checks were done very quickly (within a week), and the only delay then was waiting for FEO visit, as their diaries are pretty full. Then allow a couple of weeks after the visit for new FAC to arrive.

    llwynog, you are probably better off giving them a call before dropping in at the office. I have always found them very helpful. My variation arrived 5 weeks after sending in my application - a "one for one" variation for .223 to .243 and a new entry for 7mmRM.

    Hi Finnbear, do you get a receipt from them or is it just handover, the reason I ask is my sgc is up for renewal soon and I was contemplating dropping it off by hand.

    Mrs Finnbear takes mine in to the front desk,no receipts needed as all on camera / voice etc, but she has to beat the jobsworth that works the car barrier in to work!!!
