    Back to the original story, I wouldn't necessarily say the guy in the thread wasn't a fit and proper person per se: He was a right twat in the post and seemed to be quite the keyboard warrior to everyone, but took the easy path at the gunstore/gunsmith when they said it was fine.
    Nuff said.

    Pretty difficult to judge somebody's "fit and properness" based on what they say behind a screen. Having met people in real life that I have interacted with on forums, more often than not, the preconception I have of how they will act, speak, look etc is way off base with reality.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    You should hear me then losing the plot at work in front of colleagues and the public, I'm considered a certified mental case
    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Now I gotta ask myself whether someone who suggests that shooting someone in the bush is just a case of being a "mistake" is a fit and proper person.... hmmmmm

    @Ryan_Songhurst

    Forget about the bloody guns, get out of the bush and onto the road. Now, are you NEVER going to cause a motor vehicle accident??? I don't think any of us would be that confident. Although they deliver much lower impact energy, guns can be as lethal as cars.
    Guns don't kill people - drivers do.

    Not comparable - shit load more variables when driving.... pointing a rifle at something you have not identified and consciously pulling the trigger is very different to a vehicle accident...

    Yay, someone who gets it, and doesn't try to compare it to something completely different.

    turn your last 7 words around.....cars can be as lethal as guns and it makes more sense...... if you get behind the wheel pissed its a conscious decision......if you decide to speed its a conscious decision..... if you tail gate..if you use phone....overtaking on blind corner...
    not the same...yes AND no
    the above are using something in a way thats KNOWN to be dangerous and can kill,the last one is getting close as you doing something you think is right without proper vision to CONFIRM IT .

    Lookit, seems like there are two schools of thought on this: There is a chance something could go wrong so I always make sure... and... There is no chance something could go wrong because I always make sure. Seems like everyone who regularly writes to this forum has their heads screwed on right either way. Just my cent.

    As for the subject of this thread, I read it, he was a troll.

    Cars, guns, aircraft or whatever its all information processing and decision making and like it or not humans make wrong decisions sometimes.

    Believing you'll never make a wrong decision is setting yourself up for a bunch of heuristic errors (confirmation bias etc) that increase the chances of making a wrong decision.

    Understanding that you have the potential to make mistakes can help you establish and follow processes to ensure that you are making proper decisions based on evidence instead of assumptions and mental shortcuts.
