Thread: Well, seems there's a delay...

    Well, seems there's a delay...

    Having handed in my FAC/SGC Application on 7th December, I was tempted to expect that it would only take six weeks before my licence dropped through the letterbox, obviously with the Christmas and New Year festivities there was always going to be additional delay, but here we are, over five weeks later, and I've not heard a peep from West Mercia.

    I've since heard from a few shooting friends that I shouldn't expect anything to happen for between four to six months. Ho hum.

    I'm told good things come to those that wait...
    There's always next week...

    If you paid by cheque then check whether it has been cashed. If it has been cashed then a call to the licensing unit asking when the feo visit is likely.
    If cheque not cashed then call to ask whether the application has been received. A new grant will usually take longer than your intial expectation (but not always), however you should have been contacted by now to arrange the feo visit. Best wishes.

    Chase them up, they seem to take for ever if you've made a slight error in your application and will wait for you to contact them first. Best of luck and don't forget you are actually paying for the service they provide.

    You're right, just checked, they cashed the 60 fee on 19/12/2012 and I've not heard a peep, I'll be ringing them Monday morning, today in fact.

    Have you got a section 7 or handed your guns into your RFD/to a mate, or are you in possession of your guns illegally

    Illegal possession ! No according to South Yorkshire Police my renewal could still take up to another 3 weeks to be processed, when I told them that I then required a temporary cert to put me in legal possession of my guns I was told that I am in legal possession because it is all live and in process on there system and I need not do anything !!

    As for the 1 for 1 variation I was told it was the next in line to be processed, I thought nice one and asked "so that should be back with me soon then" ? to the reply yes probably about 2-3 weeks
