Hi All,

Help me out here if you can please, sorry if I have missed it in all the previous pages but I currently have two issues, one very serious, with Jill Fuller, Firearms Manager in Wiltshire.

Has anyone had any dealings with her please and what are your views...oh yes..is it Jill or Gill...Cheers!!

Edit...I also understand the WHOLE Wiltshire Firearms team based at Devizes HQ are civilians, can anyone confirm this please??

Got my FAC and SGC today. Took just over a month to sort and I wasn't being the quickest. I think that's pretty good and didn't have any particulary bad issues.

Any help for Deker?

Avon & Somerset- good enough on renewal and variations- easy to approach the office and staff seemm to know what they are doing - most of the time :icon_eek:

Only one bad experience on a variation had to involve BASC but sorted in no time :clapper:

With Gwent police,--- initial ( first ) application for firearms took eight months to clear :blink: just had my first renewal through and took a total of four weeks :thumbs: :thumbs: Vast improvement !! mainly due to the increased resources and personnel, my FEO was very good --straight but fair. Happy days
