    Starting to worry about certificate renewal

    Every five years I`m on tenterhooks waiting for my renewal
    from Notts.
    This year we were warned that unless the applic. was in three months
    in advance we couldnt expect renewal in time and would have
    to put guns with another certificate holder??????? or RFD
    I got mine aplic in by return of post, well before three months
    still not heard despite phone calls emails and letter.
    today after telephone call I was promised a temp before expiry date.

    Ive had a FAC for 30years+,I kept the renew simple, no aquisitions, gave my referees stamped addressed envelopes and
    watched them post them , copies of shooting leases. couldnt do much more.
    I guess they`re snowed under but that doesnt help me.
    So now I wait,

    request a sec 7 its your right to have one on request , or request them to pay for rfd service send the request to top in firearms and also send it to chief stating you are paying for a service and are being obstucted in your lawful use of your fire arms.if you are a paid for pestcontrol will he sign off your losses as you will have to take him to court for loss of revenue.iv been told essex is doing same thing aswell , i will not let my guns go if i have sent my paper work in in time i have not comited any crimes so why should i/we have to have our sport stopped until a public sector sevice catch up with there work .if you can go to there office and collect it to save postal do't give them no chance to run you out of time.

    Did they actually say in writing you would have to lodge your guns with another cert holder or a RFD, if so you need to send the letter to BASC or who ever you are a member of.

    Well today my FAC expires
    I telephoned the Office and was assured that a Section 7 has been issued
    dated from tomorrow and in the post. Office lady was helpful,
    So I ll wait patiently for the postman tomorrow before I dare venture out.
