I wonder if age has anything to do with Police considerations of variations/additional rifles etc.
I read a lot of posts where folk seem afraid of asking for extra rifles just because they want another rifle or are concerned that requests will be refused.
Both Lanc's and Grampian have always looked favourably on my requests but then I am now 44 years old. I currently have 5 rifles on my ticket and don't think I see any problems with asking for more.
So... is it an age thing, a where you live thing or a which constabulary you live in thing? Are your relations with your local police getting easier with age?
P.S Muir it must seem laughable to you that we have to ask permission to add another rifle to the gun safe.
