Rockhopper, Lancs are inundated with work, people don't even expect a variation back in 5 weeks.

Yes, I did get an apology from the FEO about the anticipated time. Interestingly, he said that they had no problem in receiving and starting the process if the applicant was not yet a full member of their club. If the applicant was within, say, 2 months of gaining full membership, then the enquiry process would soon show if they had a 'good reason' or not for grant. All they wanted was a note on the Other Information page to state when you expect full membership.

The FEO went as far to say he wanted this message passed to all club secretaries and not just mine (within Lancs of course).

Its different rules for an RFD though surely David??

When I went through my grant my FEO actually laughed at me when he saw what I was asking for and the size of the lock top ammo portion of my cabinet. He had to come back to re-inspect the ammo safe that I had to quickly go out and buy, but he was coming back anyway for an upgraded door lock anyway.

Mark, certainly some things will be different for an RFD in a commercial premises however I have seen more onerous conditions placed on some FAC holders for security and holding and equally I can think of some FAC holders who hold far more when it comes to ammunition and firearms versus some RFD's

The one which really sticks in my mind was a part time RFD who came to me for some specific items and forwarded a copy of RFD which mentioned some very specific items and their location within his house, sadly something I cannot discuss in the public domain however it was a real eye opener. :p
