.44 ammo allocation for BP Revolver.

#1 Post by Swallowtail »

Recently got my FAC back after a variation for a .44 BP revolver. They also gave me an ammo allocation of 200 rounds of .44 ammo??

Just goes to show how bad the certification department is,people doing a job which evidently requires no knowledge of the subject what so ever.

I'm told everything passes via their 'decision maker' prior to being stamped.

Why do these people take on the jobs if they don't like what they are doing

FIFY

The answer to your original question: to get a wage?

Ok - but how many did you actually ask for? :D

And don't forget, come renewal, you will be asked why you haven't actually bought any.

I didn't ask for any, cos I knew I didn't need any. I did ask for 500 x 223 and got 300. However, I shall yet again be e mailing them to inform them of their cock up which will probably result in my FAC off in the post again. If they get a move on, I might have it back before I go up to North Cotes a week Friday.
