my back garden is 65yrds long, its perfect for practicing and I even have a school at the back of me, I don't shoot whilst the school is open just to keep the peace with them because lets be honest most people think guns are for nut cases, I did once have the police call round because the janitor saw a man with a gun by the school, the police called and as they saw everything was above board they left, they then informed the school what I was doing was perfectly legal, I,m just lucky that I know the persons involved with the school ,

I have plenty of land to practice on so don't bother at home except for standers but NOT with a loaded rifle, as stated I just keep the crosshairs on the target,,

in saying that its not doing me any good because I,m still useless at standers
Not sure where this thread is going? perhaps my question wasn't clear enough the question I tried to ask was would it be alright to swap between two rifles. all of the guys involved in the conversation are fully aware of all laws and requirements relating to safe shooting and have excellent relationships with their immediate neighbours, the reference to a neighbour related to one guy who has a difficult neighbour serval doors down thus wanted to use a his other rifle with a moderator on it.
