    whats this all about ??

    I have a mate who had a visit from his new feo,

    on seeing he had a slot for a rifle and mod he said to him,

    WHY DO YOU HAVE AN EMPTY SLOT, this should be filled asap,

    the young chap was gob smacked,

    i said i am sure you can fill the slot when you want, as long as its filled before your next renewal, as they will remove it if its not filled,

    whats your thoughts on this ?

    As far as I was aware Bob, the slot to purchase a rifle/calibre can be filled any time before the next renewal, as you say.

    I understand that in my area they are only allowing 6 months to take up the slot - I wait with bated breath as I have just submitted a renewal and asked for a 0.2 c/f - see if they give me a time restriction.....watch this space.

    A slot will run for the duration of the certificate, even if it is a variation added any time during the lifetime of the FAC.
    Licensing offices have no authority to demand that the slot be filled within a certain time under the threat of removal of that slot.
    However, on expirey it is customery to remove that slot if no request is made to keep it.

    There is no need to fill the slot immediately. The only argument for removal at renewal is that you don't need it. Remember that what you have to show to get a slot on your ticket is "good reason" NOT "need". Bob, pm me the name of the FEO please mate.

    slots do not run indefinitely nor do they have to be filled "immediately"!

    Indeed L&B will review a slot after 2 years and discuss removal at that point (straight from the horse's mouth)
    In their defence if you havent done anything with it in 2 years do you REALLY need it?

    that said an empty slot can be very useful for a quick one for one.
