Moderator on .220 Brno licence renewal

    Hi all

    I've recently completed renewal form for above rifle licence.

    On it, I ticked the box for the moderator and submitted my letter of reason (lowering noise around farm yards).

    I've got the "firearm certificate grant notice letter" back, which says my application for a firearm certificate for a .220 rifle is successful.

    However it contains no mention of the moderator.

    So I don't know if I've been granted the moderator addition or not, does anyone know if its usually mentioned on the notice letter?

    Want to get ducks in a row before ringing superintendent tomorrow

    Anytime I got the "firearm certificate grant notice letter" back for the rifle it never mentioned a moderator in it. ( I have permission for a moderator)

    In fact, the letters for the rifle and the shotguns have the exact same wording.

    The only way I know that the moderator has been granted again is when I see the "S" on the rifle licence.

    Great stuff, thanks JR.

    That answers my question, there will be no reference to moderator on notice letter

    Yes but your license must have a little S on the bottom left hand side to verify that the authorisation has been granted, no S no moderator!

    Licence arrived and S is on the bottom left corner.

    Thanks for answers all
