    make sure the Mrs (if any) is warm and welcoming, that the dogs are not jumping and barking, the son isn't out back playing with your 12g, and you take down the 'kill the president' posters from inside of your cabinet (LOL). probably also worth having your lease agreements or records of stalks on the table.

    Dogs barking and generally going wild at an unknown visitor should score brownie points! Just don't let them bite him.
    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

    Many thanks for the ideas, He was in fact a She, and shearrived at exactly 11am. I made some outlandish requests but she does not for seeany problems (.223 and .243 for hunting on local farm/target use and .308 +.338 for target shooting at my club). She even agreed to my proposed relocationof cabinet. Happy days and top marks to Northumbria-although I will reservejudgement until my new tickets arrive.

    You posted at 1102 and the server clock is spot on so she must have been late!

    Glad it went well... I've recently had my renewal visit too and spent the evening before stressing about ammo allowances and obsessively counting rounds to make double sure I wasn't over. It went fine too, in fact he never even checked that....
