An early Christmas present
Further to the letter from Dr Nikki Thompson in the August issue, my renewal was due on February 21 this year. I can confirm my reminder letter arrived on October 31 of last year and that the home visit and medical checks were both prompt. My shotgun certificate was returned to me on December 19. Not quite so fast, but I have had renewals that have run quite close to the renewal date before, so I was quite impressed with their service. I am a BASC shotgun coach and get clients who are applying for certificates for the first time and these seem to take about eight to 10 weeks, which to me seems reasonable.
