    Wiltshire Firearms Dept : Well Done

    Had call to re-apply for a shotgun license 8yrs after the previous license had expired.
    The FEO - specificly Dereck Binks ~ wonderful
    Very supportive and knowledgable; building a professional relationship and providing confidence.
    License application turned around ( with a thorough home-visit on a weekend !! ) in next to no time.

    Thank you Wiltshire Firearms Dept

    Any of you poor sods in Hampshire want to come over the boarder and avoid 16-20wks of uncertainty ?? LOL

    Yeh we're very lucky in Wiltshire and Derek is a nice guy to! He's done a couple of quick turn arounds for me.

    Good people thinly spread so things occasionally fall down the gaps and am jumping through some hoops on boar. However compared to peoples experiences elsewhere I certainly wouldnt swap.

    Lived in Wiltshire for 12 years. In my opinion the rest of the UK should use Wilts as an example of how the job should be done. They are brilliant.

    I must say compared with other Dept I have dealt with they are fantastic only 1thing they couldn't get me was somewhere to shoot some bunnies or charlies near Melksham as I have just moved across the county!

    I hope they don't change the team any time soon!
