In light of the recent shootings up north i took it upon myself to make sure that permissions were all above board.
Also one of my permissions is an estate with offices, walks, a footpath, and a house in the perimeter. So it has a regular security firm. I have not in the past had any need to approach these security gaurds, but in light of whats happened recently i felt it prudent to make and extra effort to say hello etc.
I spoke to a guy this morning with a "heads up" from the land owner / farmer to re-introduce myself as the sole person for shooting rights the approximately 450 acres (about 100 of which is patrolled loosely speaking).
My point is , is that by doing this i have hopefully re-assured some jumpy residents, passers-by, and any other persons on the estate that there is a chance of seeing an armed man walking on the estate, and also preventing them from taking a panic action of informing police of a possible threat to society.
30 mins of small talk to certain people may save me a lot of potential aggro.
