Thread: Unexpected visit

    Unexpected visit

    Is it usual to have a FEO visit on a variation?

    Just had an unexpected visit to review my variation request for 6.5 x 55

    Already have a cf (.222), fully open ticket, so was surprised to be called

    Any reason why?

    no reason at all, only to discuss if you really 'need' a larger calibre and why, what have you..however, that should be done over the phone if at all.

    I had a scheduled visit when I had my last variation but that was a new FEO as I'd moved and he said they try to get out and meet people once a year. Got all I asked for and was a nice quick visit.

    not unsurprising for a larger calibre for them to want to check everything is as it should be. Just because you have an open ticket, you don't have an open ticket for anything bigger than you have already been granted, you could potentially find that the licence you get back could be restricted for the 6.5 if they don't feel you justify it being open at this stage.

    It's quite usual if there's an increase requested in the firearms held on an FAC.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    It was a 1 to 1 variation, albeit .22 rf to 6.5 x 55......

    They do in southend-on-sea and you still get the 3rd deg what ,why, where ? etc, if you have a case they will be happy to grant ,there was a case that the guy had x cal and wished y but x did the same job so he got a knock back, as said make a brew and a chat will often help later on no reason to build fences .
