    Has anyone on here had an experience of positive feedback from their FEO, basically being told you have nothing to worry about and then received an issue r=or a refusal from the licencing department? I am based in Scotland 

     

    Second question if you haven't had an issue what have people experiences been of time between application going to the licencing department from the FEO and your certificates arriving?

    The FEO doesn't make the final decision. That would be the Licensing Manager, but if the FEO said you have nothing to worry about I'd take that as a good sign. :good:

    That is exactly what's playing on my mind, I think I am just worried about getting my hopes up. I am worried that just because the FEO has said he has no concerns doesn't mean that the licencing manager wont find something

    +1 just relax, you are going to give yourself anxiety if you carry on thinking like this 😀

    Unless you have a dark past, or a medical issue, and your security is good.
    There should be no issue, the FEO prepares a report, which is then passed on to the FLM , this is the part that takes the time usually.

    A long delay means nothing.

    I declared a medical issue but the FEO had no issues with it. I also did a full medical report and all seemed fine. Just a little worried that the licencing team may not agree

    Not sure what you mean by “an issue r=or a refusal from the licensing department”

    Have you have received a letter/email from the licensing department notifying you of refusal since the FEO visit?

    No the FEO emailed me today to say that he has submitted the application to the licencing department

    Thanks for the reassurance. All the waiting! You tend to sit and think what if this or what if that and everything has gone so smoothly so far I a almost waiting for something to go wrong

    lol - everything you are saying is pretty much a play by play of my application i.e. declared a condition, was told it should be ok by the FEO as long as the docs report matches my declaration (which it does) and now waiting around wondering.  Currently been about two and a half weeks since they should have received the doctors report.  I have asked the FEO to confirm receipt of the report and should hopefully get confirmation tomorrow.

    So, rest assured you are not alone in your musings.

    Good luck.

    Make sure and drop me a PM and let me know how your application progresses. What did you apply for?

    Exactly the same here. What part of the country are you in? 

    lol - FEO told me it is quite a standard first application (.22lr & .17hmr).

    I'm in Sussex.

    Makes sense. I plan to build up trust them do a variation for a .243

    .22lr and .17hmr are probably my lot as I only have authority to shoot rabbits and crows on my permission.
