I would say yes, whats to say permission has not 'expired' ?
I have another 3 years on my lease which they already have a copy of.
Johnno100 ok it's a land usage form for ground over which I have permission to shoot.
I just wondered as I can't remember doing it before least not for all of them.
I don't do it for all just the main ones (largest) that way they have everything to hand and can't ' delay' anything as the can't find slips already rec'd. everyone has there own ideas about how to do it. I have always thought easier to provide the information instead of being asked for it - and I also have had a open ticket.
CharlieT is correct, you the applicant have to show "good reason" to possess each and every firearm at renewal.
If you have open conditions you should not lose them
All you have to do is show that you own land, have permission or show a booking or letter of invitation that is tangable i.e. new, genuine and substantial.
The police cannot refuse you if your permission is valid but they do get confused and focus on landowners but landowners may not own the sporting rights.
For example if Lord Smithers-Smyth may own half of Devon but if he has sold or leased the shooting rights to another, it is entirely possible that he may not have retained any rights for himself until the conlsuion of the short term lease or not at all if the rights have permanantley been sold on to another.
Hope this helps
