There are no rules in Calgary for newbie's with 450fps guns. It will be a problem if he shot somebody with it at close range also not carrying a secondary for minimum engagements.
So far I've only seen about 3 to 4 joc members who can really take on the sniper role and they have played almost as long as I am. (I started late 80's, fak I'm old) I also have a sniper rifle but I use my ptw most of the time. Playing sniper is whole different ball game.
I would suggest signing up in JOC and try to attend a game to get verified and if you ask some of the guys they might let you test shoot their guns. Get the feel of it.
