Hi all, I was wondering if I could pick your brains?
I have currently got a variation in progress with sussex police to swap my.223 for a .243 and you've guessed it there towing the party-line and asking for a mentor or DSC 1. They have said I can have the .243 for fox with no problems or conditions but if I want to point it at deer I need to have someone show me how to do it!?!
Now that my sound crazy enough but the really STUPID thing with this is at the moment I currently have muntjac and chinese water deer cleared with the .223 with no conditions at all?????
I have spoken to the BASC and they have been extremely helpfull and told me who I need to speak to and what I should say, but my question to you guys is this, how much should I argue this? Obviously I would like my .243 and be able to stalk with it but if I throw my toys out of the pram too much am I going to make life difficult for myself in the future, sort of a bitting the hand that feeds type of situation?
I have no problem with the DSC 1 and I intend on taking it in the future, but I do object to being told I have to do it to shoot roe and bigger when they are more than happy to let me shoot the two smaller spieces of deer unacommpanied with no magic bit of paper saying I know what they look like!
Anyway rant over and I'll turn this over to you guys, what do you think?
Cheers in advance
