    Same vetting file they have been using for about 7 years. Some officers are just more practical than others.
    He showed me that also. Noted the word forelock. I thought that was horse terminology?

    And he failed me because it wasn't dynabolted to the floor, only to the studs in the walls. What happens if I don't invite this guy back?

    Those can be a pain in the ass to remove. Can't imagine hammering them out of the wood would do the timber any good

    No that's a Fetlock.

    Stout Cabinet or box : Fixing: bolted or secured to wall and / or floor. Can be both or one or other. No demand to dynabolt to floor. Firearm officers if they are decent want to check the firearms are in the category of licence you hold IE: no E-cat firearms in a A-cat security was a few issues with that with the E-cat became A-cat and then back to E-cat debacle. Also just to check security has been reasonably secured to building.
