Seems like someone asked the question why West Mercia wont grant the AOLQ condition as per the Force Website:
"The West Midlands Region (West Mercia, Warwickshire, West Midlands and Staffordshire Police Forces) have legitimately, and unanimously, decided not to incorporate this new condition."
The response from the webchat is here: Web Chat | Get Involved
"West Mercia Police does not apply a blanket refusal on the 'any lawful quarry' condition. Similarly, we will not automatically apply this condition to every West Mercia Firearm Certificate without justification.
Each application for a variation to a firearms certificate is individually assessed to ensure that 'Good Reason' exists for that particular calibre weapon to be acquired. The request has to be supported by the nomination of a parcel of land (deemed safe and suitable for that particular calibre weapon), written permission from the land owner and confirmation that the listed quarry (fox, deer, wild boar etc) is present on this land.
The applicant’s experience with firearms (calibres used, ammunition expended etc.) is also taken into consideration for each application.
Generally, the firearms certificate conditions (customarily applied by West Mercia Police) do not restrict any shooter from pursuing their chosen pastime; and, unless any such restriction is apparent, we will not apply the 'any lawful quarry' condition.
Any individual who wishes to add the 'any lawful quarry' condition to their firearm certificate can however submit a written request containing the information outlined above, and we will assess that individual's suitability for the requested firearms condition."
Now I'm a bit baffled - on the one hand they say they wont incorporate the condition, then they say you can apply for it and they'll think about it?
