firstly you have to go and ask for it off the landowners/farmers and you cant be serious about the second bit are you :icon_eek:
if your new to shooting and not sure whats what ,i would look on the net and have a quick read up on the air rifle law it will give you an insight into where you can and cant shoot :thumbs:

Do not go shooting with out permission !!! You will get in a whole lot of trouble . Google local farmers in your area Get a list and ring them all or send letters telling them how responsable you are don't tell them about your local wood shooting . Also join a gun club for references and get insurance !!!

thats the thing you just cant do that anymore ,this is why you need to have a little read up on the law ,if your wanting to get permission to shoot somewhere so you can work your way up to getting a firearms licence for a rimfire or centrefire rifle you dont want to be caught breaking the law getting there..............You have to have a walk round or drive to farms and basically knock on doors and ask mate.

Build yourself up to the fact that you will be told NO on many occasions and the door shut in your face.
