Thread: Young People & Firearms

    Young People & Firearms

    Remind me again please - - am I right in thinking that as far as the lending of an Estate Rifle (& obviously under close supervision) the young person must be at least 17 years old ? - - And - - if he is over 14 with his own Firearm Certificate he must only use the named rifle on that Certificate. Thus even with a Certificate he still cannoy legally use a borrowed or Estate rifle ?

    Thanks

    JR have a look on the BASC website and their link to the change in legislation. I think that you will find that the age is now 18 and not 17.

    Anyway - - I hope you have a grand 2012 and if you're ever passing this neck of woods feel free to call in.

    - - or as I replied to JCS I read that as relating to the lender not the borrower. How I wish they would make statements clear-cut !
