Thread: BASC & the West Mercia Police Firearms at the Midland

    BASC & the West Mercia Police Firearms at the Midland

    This has to be good news for those who live in that area!!


    Firearms licensing staff from West Mercia Police will be at BASC's stand at the Midland Game Fair this weekend to offer a range of services to certificate holders who live in their force area.

    They will have the technology with them to allow West Mercia certificate holders to obtain variations to their firearm certificates and to complete transfers of guns bought and sold at the event. They will also be able to issue temporary permits if needed and will offer a service where West Mercia certificate holders may track the progress of any application they may have made for a certificate.

    They can also offer help and advice about the licensing process to anyone who requires it.

    Mike Eveleigh, BASC's senior firearms officer, said: "West Mercia Police's firearms licensing department has in the past been criticised for poor performance but with some assistance from BASC they have made sterling efforts to improve their service, which has already shown vast improvements. To further this, firearms licensing department staff will be at the BASC stand at the Midland Game Fair."

    Surely that's why we have a National Firearms Licensing Database

    So 'technically' there is no reason that they shouldn't be able to.... However I think the inter-constabulary politics might get a little exciting if we all requested AOLQ and other sensible conditions from the more enlightened/pragmatic Licensing Departments.

    Only if you move house!

    Seriously though, it might offer FAC holders who reside in the West Mercia area the chance to quiz them on why they appear to be so intransigent on the subject of AOLQ for experienced shooters with open FACS. It works for all parties, saves admin time, (and no doubt money), and has been adopted elsewhere without problem.
