At least Manthing has had responses, hopefully he’ll be sorted asap. My licences expirey date is getting close now and they haven’t responded to mails, only the auto generated, tried calling, automated messages, etc,etc, getting a bit concerned.
Seems to be a country wide issue 🤔

The s7 is good for 8 weeks but only permits me to own the guns listed on it, not buy or sell any. Cartridges weren't a problem as I pick them up from the same place all the time.

Have you done your renewal?
Get in early don't give them any excuses yo say something stupid like "sorry, but as you didn't renew at least 8 weeks before expiry its now a grant and not a renewal".
Mine went in within a couple of days of the reminder getting here.

You should be able to sell/transfer shotguns off a section 7 certificate to another holder but it won’t allow you to acquire more or even exchange like for like. They’re normally only given to beneficiaries of an estate who inherit firearms, the idea is to give them time to legally dispose of them by sale or transfer. Unfortunately what usually happens is that the beneficiaries just can’t be bothered figuring it out and the guns go off to the police FLO and are melted down.

Bugger me, after many mails-only getting automated replies, answer phone when ringing,
Just had a mail saying from expire date of SGC, 8 week extension, during which time will receive new cert. Extension letter in post
Sorry for any inconvenience.
Being honest was starting to panic a bit.
