Ive carried this over to a new topic board there are many questions still unanswered by you the people that are fore filling the mentoring and mentored parts .
Has anyone ever challenged the process, what was the response if any of the police forces .
They have no right in applying any extra conditions following reasons being :
(1) You are still allowed to Keep the weapon and ammunition at home
(2) You are allowed to carry the weapon and ammo to there place of use . (But are not allowed to use it on your own hardly makes sense)
(3) You are the person who is aiming the weapon at the intended quarry species or target , if something goes wrong it is not the mentor that is held responsible it is the person that is holding the weapon .
(4) The certificate is in your name not the mentors .
So why is the weapon and ammunition not held by him, if your not a suitable person to use the weapon, why should you be suitable to hold the weapon and ammunition in your home , these are clauses put there by the issuing police force and not the home office so they can be challenged as unlawful .
Where is our friendly BASC man now ,looking for answers, not argument, these clauses have not to my knowledge came over the border to Scotland as yet . WHY .We are no different in Scotland than the fac holders in England or Wales .
