    Alcohol and Firearms

    For some reason at this time of year a considerable amount of FAC holders drink alcohol. If you are drunk in your own home you are still in charge of your firearms, so is that an offence?

    I suspect that depends if anything happens involving your firearms or if there are any disturbances that create unwanted attention.

    Yes that's what I was thinking, but even if there is no disturbance is it an offence to be drunk in charge of firearms?
    I know the answer and it would only take a disgruntled neighbour to drop one in it.

    I occasionally like a drink. I know where my car keys are but I'd not go for a drive if I'd had a drink. I also know how to access my rifles but I'd not get them out if. I'd had a drink.
    cant see the problem here

    Not to put to fine a point on this thread. I fail to see why anyone would not use common sense. Keeping firearms is one thing, using them is another. So potentially anyone who is a registered firearms dealer or who works in a gun shop, let alone all of those who legally own a shotgun or a rifle or who have access to them, such as the military or police are not allowed to partake of a drink??

    Like some one has already pointed out, I have a car, I have the keys, but I wouldn't dream of driving the car when I have been drinking alcohol. likewise I wouldn't dream of using a rifle or shotgun under the influence of drink.

    This thread is now closed as it has the potential to turn into a pointless argument.
