I actually retired at 49, yep I have to admit it is great, but my wife still works for the Police as an FME, so I look after the wee boy. Not a problem though as he is about to start the school so I will get a lot more shooting and fishing in now. LOL.whaaa retired at 51 you lucky bugger http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... wish i was http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...
I never said I was a Police Officer, but I did work for the Police for 5 years after serving 27 years in the Army. I said my comments were from experiences I have had and the fact that I have shot for over 40 years and never once have I had a problem with Police being called out to me. I believe that it is each individual’s choice and if they feel it is needed fine, but it will not ensure that he or she will have an undisturbed shoot.
Fry, I am retired now buy the way.

hence why me n wor kid always create a log when we go out....
Durham Police dont have a facility for this Darryl and when I asked what to do, they said ring the control room if you want, but it wont make a lot of difference,if someone puts a call in their obliged to respond! I asked if they were going to look into this and he said it was a good idea but they said they have no plans to implement it!.
Bit crazy if you ask me.
I always get a log when I shoot on Tyne and Wear.

If your going out a few nights a week, during the day and weekends you must never be of the fecking phone!! Its your permission so go and enjoy it, how many times do folk actually get stopped in a season anyway? If the police want to waste there time driving away out there for nothing then let them do so, whats a 2 minute stop when everything is above board?
The mind boggles...

the police down here dont seem to do much apart from harrass drivers and fly round in the helecopter looking through heat detecting cameras looking for weed growers they dont even show for burglarys just give you a crime number over the phone and ask if you want bloody trauma counceling ha ha they asked me if i wanted that when i reported a break in at our allotment site!! cracked me up
What is the point of phoning them if they still turn out anyway? Police my way dont seem to find it a suprise, that people go shooting in rural areas. They will soon get fed up turning out to the same person shooting, on the same farms, on the same days or nights of the week!

Charlie, when you are flying the kite you are not likely to be endangering the public to the extent that you can endanger the public with a rifle...
Youve obviously never seen me fly a kite moley
Seriously though, its not about legal requirement etc, et-bloody-cetera. i only call to let know plod know i'm 'out with a gun' of any description if i think joe public will see me and call it in. If I've called in first, it saves me, personally, time. Time having to talk to plod and time waiting for the place to settle down again after the visit.
Honestly though, I don't think i could do a job manning the police phones:
"There's a man in the field with a gun" says joe public.
"Best place for him surely?" I would be tempted to answer...

copied from 'Firearms Law, Guidance to the police':
iii) Shot Gun Cartridges
A Shot gun certificate is not required to possess or acquire shot gun cartridges containing five or more shot. All ordinary shot cartridges are covered by this description. However, a shot gun certificate (or firearm certificate authorising possession of a section 1 shot gun) is normally required to purchase shotgun cartridges.
There are of course exceptions to the requirement to hold an SGC to purchase. For example you can purchase shotgun cartridges at an approved clay ground without any form of ID or licence, and you are free to take any unused cartridges away with you.
