The shooting area becomes a range, in pretty much all legal definitions. You need a PAL (or the equivalent for youths), at least.
So one way or another, you need permission from whoever is responsible for the land even if you own it or the Crown owns it.
Do you turn your head around while you backpedal?
You said categorically that you couldn't shoot real guns on private property without it being licenced as a gun range and insured as such. That's patently false. Now you're adding to that statement to make your original false statement credible.
This kid is a legal firearms owner and user, and has demonstrated an accurate understanding of firearms law. You, in your self-professed expert status as a long-time firearms owner and user, have made statements that are contrary to the law Sure, they don't relate to airsoft in the same way, but he's RIGHT, you're WRONG, so back the fuck off him.
