Asking this for a keeper friend of mine.
He already as shotguns and .243 and 7x57 rifle.
His job means he must must take out his employers guests to stalk deer and various friends and paying clients.
Due to some bad shooting, bullets placement etc, etc. he has to occasionally deal with wounded deer aswell as foxes in cage traps.
He would like a .38 2 shot pistol and wondered what his chances were of being granted one.
He thinks the pistol idea is better than lugging a rifle with you and due to the heavily wooded area he stalks easier to kill a wounded beast in tight cover, mostly Fallow but Roe too.
Do you think it is worth him aplying for it? or will he be turned down as police may say he already has a rifle. It is Dorset Police.
Any advice welcome.
