A pal asked me to mentor him with his new .243, I of course agreed.
However this was refused by the FLB as I have a land restriction on my FAC, my land is passed to 308
I am trying to pick the sense out of this,as I have attended the required Centrefire courses as set out by my local FLB, not that they even had a right insist on this, according to BASC
However this is still not enough, and although he would be able to use my rifle under my supervision (correct ?), he would not be allowed to use his own to take the same shot.
I have told him just to take his DSC1 and clear the matter once and for all, but it does show that certain FLB's are still making things up as they go along. As far as I can recall there is no statuatory requirement to attend any course whatsoever in order to obtain .243, or any other CF.
Your points would be appreciated
