    but this ballie has taught this kid ZERO safety.

    my fear is that if i do try explain the law, or that i don't mind him shooting with a bit of RULES there will be tension

    and honestly I've put up with enough shit not to jump the fence.

    Also im a bit sick of this kid shooting birds for no reason, my old man would've made me eat it

    so does one speak to the dad, or be the dick and call metro
    Sounds like there already is tension...it's just you're the only one feeling it and your neighbour is oblivious.

    I built myself a bullet trap out of a carton box, filled with wood shavings and a plank at the back all inside a 250mm deep box. To stop the shavings falling out through the bullet holes I installed a sheet of duvet material. It is light and clean.

    kind of what happens when the IQ is at a certain level though, ignorance is life for some people

    sooner or later the kid will shoot himself or his sibling, problem is I have a conscience and would rather that doesnt happen

    and:

    "firearm" means any

    a) device manufactured or designed to propel a bullet or projectile through a barrel or cylinder by means of burning propellant, at a muzzle energy exceeding 8 joules (6 ft-lbs);

    b) device manufactured or designed to discharge rim-fire, centre-fire or pin-fire ammunition;

    3. No person may possess a firearm unless he or she holds a licence, permit or authorisation issued in terms of this Act for that firearm.

    and:
