Supervising someone without a licence when shooting
If you're planning to go shooting with someone who does not have a firearms licence this summer, it's important you understand your obligations as a licence holder.
In most circumstances, non-prohibited firearms can be used by someone without a firearms licence if they are under the immediate supervision of a licence holder.
Immediate supervision means the licence holder is:
- physically present and actively supervising the shooter
- close enough to be able to take control of the firearm being used by the shooter if necessary, and
- not using another firearm while providing supervision.
