As per the title there has been a bit of a debate in the club about what's needed for people to be able to transport the club rifles to and from the club to bisley etc.
In the past there has been a letter on the club letterhead that says something along the lines of "Bob says it's ok for Pete to transport the rifle to Bisley".
That's it, nothing about which section of the act this authority is being given under etc.
I for one am not keen on the idea as even with the letter, all it takes is a routine traffic stop to divert into a young 'n eager pc pursuing a firearms offence. One would be in possession of a rifle not listed on ones ticket and "Bob said it was ok" doesn't amount to much of a defence in a court of law - I wouldn't have thought. Either way it would mean probably spending a fair amount of time trying to sort out and frankly, if work got wind of a "suspicion of having committed a firearms related offence.." no thank you.
Now I've skimmed through the acts and the only piece I can find relates to miniature clubs i.e. .22lr which specifically excludes anything bigger.
Does anyone know which section the authority for club folks to transport comes from?
Thanks in advance.
