I've applied to NYorks, as I've mentioned elsewhere.
I've been sent the Dr's letter request and have sorted that out - I sent it back to them last week.
My question is - is there a particular order in which things happen after it's received?
What happens next? Do they check out your referees? Do they arrange a visit?
And are the visits different now because of Covid?
Any information on what to expect these days would be much appreciated.
Would it speed things up if I were to keep my guns at the club in a safe for the moment, as I'm guessing that would mean they don't need to actually conduct a visit?
Thanks in advance.
SoS

In Lincolnshire the Firearms Department will not touch your application until they have the medical in their hands, might be different in other counties.

Last time it took 6 weeks for the medical to be sorted. Could vary.

Then it is a visit from the FEO to make sure you have suitable storage in place.

At some point they will contact your referees.

Had to stop writing as I realised I am not quite awake yet...guns?

I thought this was a new application?

Hi - yes it's a new application. My apologies for being unclear!
What I mean is - would proposing that I store the firearms I intend to own in the club safe speed things up, as this wouldn't require a home visit?

I would not have thought so as with a new grant the FEO will want to see you.

Also what is really important is that you have a good relationship with your FEO, he is your first point of contact.

Ha..

BTW, do expect some delay due to C-19, Humberside had at one point a few weeks off, entire office not working.

They've already banned the use of poof on here.

PC pedants, they will be sharp up against the wall after the packaging designers come the revolution.
