They are great at the moment variations are taking less than a week to come back

Staffordshire here. First application was a dang nightmare time wise but to be fair they had just had that new fangled computer system.
I asked for .22, .17hmr .223 and .308 on the initial application and was granted all of them http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...
Sent my ticket in because the ammo section was overflowing and it came back missing a .22 moderator so I phoned them and was told not to worry as I was putting in for a variation soon and they would put it back on then. The variation was applied for on Friday so I will let you know.
Got the call from the FEO on Friday, she came out to see me Monday and my new ticket came today. Five days, super fast but I put in for a .243 plus mod and .303. All three are on my ticket but apparently I can now buy two lots of .308 but not .303 as they have made a mistake on the ammo section. Also on my conditions the .303 isn't mentioned at all

The last 3 yrs they have become VERY strict with applications. They will want to go out to the said land to inspect, interview you and assess you. They will try and pull your cabinet off the wall.
Turn around within 3 weeks.

Very poor service. Been shooting around 12 years now and started with 12g shoty. About 5 years ago I got myself a .22 RF. Infairness these first two guns were no hassle a couple of months at the longest. Applied for .222 CF rifle 3rd January this year and I'm still waiting............ They keep telling me they are busy with applications but come on there are only 1.5 million people in the north of ireland and they don't all shoot

8-10 weeks for a grant. My variations have been back to me within a week. Firearms staff have always been very helpful & polite when phoning. Very pleased over all.
