Max has just left a comment on my last Firearms Licensing post to say
I applied for Class A open license for an air rifle and a .22lr on the 18th Feb 2010, Got a letter on the 7th April to ask if I wished to continue and to fit a gun safe cabinet, I had already fitted one and signed of by police so I sent back the letter that day.
Now 20th April Curiosity got the better of me today and I rang Firearms Licensing enquiring on the progress of my application and all I got was a recording saying:
"We are experiencing technical difficulties in processing the backlog of applications and will take in excess of 8 weeks to finalise your application........"
Its been 6 months since they introduced this new system and looks like they still can't get it together.
Thanks for the update Max and I hope that you get your new firearms in the not too distant future.
I am still not sure what to get for my next gun, but if this is the current situation with licencing maybe I'll wait a bit longer!
