    Have a look here,


    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Looking at the forecast for this week in Scotland it looks likely that the ban will be reviewed and lifted after 7 days.

    I always believed it was 14 days of minus then a ban followed by 14 days of plus temperatures before being lifted? Getting a bit fed up with goose dinners anyway...

    The ban is reviewed after 7 days. Although given it is (as someone described her to me) Mrs Cunningham with a T chances are minimal!!

    Fingers crossed though. Not clear though if the ban is lifted we go back to day 1 of cold weather in terms of another ban is the weather gets cold again?
