I am hoping that someone can help me out on this one please. I have just had a letter back from my Firearms Office about my variation for a .243. Theyt are saying that the chap that was willing to mentor me (Quote) does not have the necessary experience! (End Quote) He has a full Open FAC with a .243 that is conditioned for Deer and he has his DSC1, exactly what more do they want?
I am led to believe that this "Mentoring" thing is not a "Legal Requirememt" and as such there are no guidelines for "Mentoring" in the HO Guidelines (Maybe someone could correct me on this if need be) Even so if there are any "guidelines" or "Rules" could someone please tell me exactly what qualifications or experience someone would need to have to be a "Mentor" as, if the police are going to insist on this then the onus rests on the montor if anything should go wrong.
I would address this question to the SACS but I do not think that they will be available till after the New Year!
