This post could be in the legal section but I think this one gets more traffic.
I was talking to a part-time stalker over the weekend and he was describing how he had taken a young 14 year old lad out stalking. He did this under the estate rifle exemption. Or so he thought. I pointed out to him that this exemption only applies to someone 17 or older. This came as a shock to him and I think there may be a lot of people who confuse the rifle exemption with the shotgun exemption which does not have the same age limit.
There may be a lot of people with the same misunderstanding.
