I have got to do a risk assesment for a tenant farmer who wants to apply for his fire arms certificate on the estate i work on.
What would you put in there? Im finding it quite hard to single stuff out because its sort of second nature to be aware of things around you but i have to put in a bit of detail. Plus i dont really know the guy that well and havent shot with him.
So far i have:
Roads and footpaths, dont shoot at them (plus there is a right to roam on some of the ground). therefore know where they are (houses included)
Make sure you have a safe backstop and can see everything you are shooting at, dont skyline.
Lamping, peripheral visibility is reduced and spp identification is harder (its an all round thing, primarily foxing)
Be aware of richochet potential
Ensure vehicles used are suitable and sensible with competant drivers
Also got to include thigs like dont fall over, watch the weather etc (anything to add here?)
Any input would be ideal because its so easy to miss the little things you take for granted
