Yesterday, I was talking to someone who is keen to get into stalking, has been out with other stalkers many times and is thinking about applying for a Firearms Cert.
He phoned up the BASC for a chat about the fact that he didn't have any stalking rights and how best to get around this.
He told the BASC that he goes out with friends and often will have the rifle whilst accompanied by the rifle owner. The BASC told him this was illegal! Am I missing the point, have the rules changed or did the lady at the BASC not understand what he was saying?
It's always been my understanding that anyone over the age of 18 and not holding a Cert can use a rifle whiilst in the company of the Cert holder. Is this correct?
