Thread: tell me if i am in the wrong

    tell me if i am in the wrong

    so tonight i am out on my permission practicing my 100 yards etc for my dsc1, ive a board resting on a 16ft earth banking and i am 100 yds away prone, the landownewr knows i am there , alls well and good,

    then as i am walking back to put stickers on the bullet holes a lad who just got permission to be there appears on the top of the banking, i lost it , i asked where he had come from , he told me and its about a mile away ,

    so i said you heard me from a mile away and your first thought was to walk towards the sound of gunfire? no reply

    i packed up and went home, but the incident has shook me up , was there any more i could have done ?

    Did you know he'd been given permission on the same ground? If so you should both agree to give each other a courtesy call or text so something like this doesnt happen again

    you need to lay down some ground rules then. His own failings are neither here nor there, just make him and anyone else on the ground safe

    Good point more so did he know you had permission to be there also. I think a chat with the land owner should be at the

    top of your "to do list"

    yes he knows i am there but i asked that he phone in advace of going onto the ground, the problem is the landowner cant or wont step up and lay down rules , he gives permmision to anyone who asks ,

    Hard though it may be, I'd agree with that. I've had farmers who think the farm's got enough acres for you and others-- I leave it to the others!! The last thing I want is a bullet up the --se!
