'Appy days matey.
Did they not do another home visit then, or did I miss that somewhere?
Hi MT, no home visit, just sent through.
I reduced my guns before cert expired, by a few as some hadn’t been out of the cabinets since last home visit
Kept 2 x 12 and 1 x 20g O/U’s ?

Again, be careful to check the exact wording to make sure that you’re allowed to continue using your firearms.
After you raised this I emailed the firearms team at Stafford police, as to whether I could carry on using my guns.
There reply.

"Good morning,
We issue temporary permits to cover applicants while their renewals are being processed. Unfortunately you cannot buy ammo on a temporary.
Rest assured I have checked your record and you are covered.
Kind regards."

Bit unfortunate about the not being able to buy ammo, it's a good job I stocked up well in advance, init. 😉😁

Aware of that matey.
Got plenty for around the farm, and on my last slab of clay cartridges. But if I run out of clay cartridges one of the peeps we shoot as a group with will do that for me.
Well I hope they will. 🤣

To be honest it’s as much about passing that info onto others who may not know or understand the fine distinctions of licensing law.
I'm sure your shooting buddies will help out, the shooting fraternity tends to be like that…after all, next year it might be them stuck with a section 7 permit.

To be honest I can't understand why they changed from an extension letter to a S7. Didn't they used to get a black mark on their record for issuing unnecessary S7s.
I suppose they have the "extraordinary circledances" excuse now. But how long will that last?

It should be.
There's already a marker on medical records so the quack can inform police if owt is untoward, quick chat to your reference to see if your a nice peeps and bobs your mom's bruda. Call over WhatsApp to see your security jobs done. What could be simpler?
