All forms (fac+sgc) sent to West Yorks recorded 16th dec, I got a phone call last week to tell me it was being dealt with and to clear up a wee problem, absolutely no hassle at all, in fact very helpful. Got a phone call from a chap called Steve just an hour ago and he will be with me in the morning. The wild boar .308 combination seems to have rattled a few cages but again this guy seems absolutely fine. We will see what the morning brings and fingers crossed. Anyone on here met this chap? what's he like?

regards,

Pete

I have never had a bad experience with Hertfordshire Constabulary. My Firearms Enquiry Officer (FEO) for my area has given me his card and email address in case I ever have a question to ask of if I am not sure of anything with regards to my licence or where I am going to work as I have an 'open' ticket.

The FEO's in Herts manage their own postcoded areas, so you always get the same Officer who know your business and a good rapport is built.

The admin staff at the Firearms Licencing Department are always helpful, polite and prompt with any variations. No complaints here !!! :D

Well everything seemed to go fine, some probs with two bits of land but I will be asking for help on a seperate thread. Looks like I will be getting everything I wanted but despite a fairly good portfolio and references I could not get an open cert, he said 18 months so lets see how I get on. For some reason he was more concerned with my shotty experience than a .308?? but hey I am not complaining (yet) Despite what I have read about about West Yorks being a pain in the hoop, the guy was absolutely fine, helpful to a fault, open and straight forward.
I don't think I could expect anything more for my first application.

Spoke to FEO today. He is ready to come and do my home visit. Whenever I can do it and get the letter which says I don't need to be mentored.

The paperwork landed on the doormat yesterday morning so I got it last night when I got in. Picked up my shotty and .22rimmy today, just the .308 to find now.
So my views on West Yorks... Mostly good, had a bit of a "to-do" over land checks but a call to BASC for some information and I soon got things moving. Forms in Post 16th Dec and my coterminous SGC and FAC back to me on 3rd Feb. Itching to get out now.
Regards,
Pete
