Thank you.

The reality is that this could have an impact.

I'm afraid that shotgun licences are really subject to the discretion of the chief constable and convictions obviously are a factor but the chief constable tends to be fairly risk adverse.

The fact that you have had a clean record for 8 years is helpful but you cannot ignore the fact of a previous conviction.

Can I clarify anything for you?
