    Most people should brush up on their laws, not only DFO's.
    As above

    It's very easy when it's tax payers money being thrown away.

    Same DFO wouldn't let me report a missing license card within 24 hours, and would arrest me if I was found carrying without said card (sure)

    He is not executing his duties if he is in breach of the very law he is employed to enforce. It's not really his personal capacity when his state funded pension is used to cover costs faced by the state due to his ignorance of duty.

    Do you think the state wouldn't throw him under the bus to avoid costs?

    Best of luck with this bud. Provided that you properly motivated the renewal (wrt s.16 licence and not simply a brief "motivation / confirmation" which you would usually do for a renewal on the same section 15), I am sure that you will be successful. Indeed, I speak from experience when I say so bec I did this in 2021.

    That's good to hear. I go 'big stick' with my motivations so it had everything in it that was provided for my last successful S16 new application.

    Great -- sounds like you did this the right way (and this is how I did mine, given the huge way in which my DFO emphasised that the renewal "...needed to be properly motivated for the new section"). Let us know how you get on!

    Going to go s16. Will shoot it a bit and then decide. Perhaps I'll sell the glock when the license is up for renewal and..... Buy another gun ��
