    Avon and Somerset Consultation Group

    The following came down through the Club Newsletter. Our Chairman sits on this group.Thought this might be of interest to folks in this forces area.

    You’ll be pleased to know that A&S are getting their ‘staffing’ issues sorted – which should
    mean that Variations and Renewals are dealt with much quicker (maybe within 6
    weeks) – Grants may still take up to 12 weeks. However, the constant reminder
    from the Bureau is – fill the forms in correctly, provide the right details and get
    them in, IN PLENTY OF TIME !! If you leave it until the last minute, don’t be surprised
    when you get a knock at the door to collect your unlicensed firearms. A
    couple of other items that were discussed; A&S are happy with e-mails to report
    acquisitions and disposals (but they might not issue an acknowledgement of it’s
    receipt, as yet). Also, if you have an unused slot on your FAC at renewal time (and
    it’s been there some while) don’t be surprised if A&S seek to remove it.

    ..... the person reading the Email is unable to hit 'reply' ?? Wow, they are pressed for time!

    Always set your mail to request a 'read-receipt'. Most individuals have an aversion to admitting to receiving a mail for some reason, but official departments tend to hit 'received' as a matter of course.
