“It is an offence under Section 21 Firearms Act 1968 as amended, for anyone convicted of a criminal offence, to handle, possess, or shoot a firearm and ammunition (this includes Air Guns). If the sentence was for more than three years the prohibition is for life; if less than three years the prohibition is for five years (note: it is the sentence, not the time served, which is the determining factor).”

1. Bookings. Bare Arms Limited reserves the right to decline a booking for any reasonable reason, and will contact you in writing if this is the case. If a booking is declined, a full refund will be made. A booking is not complete until the booking form has been completed correctly and the deposit has been made.

2. Payment. In order to book your place, a deposit of £110 must be made. The balance must be paid 14 days before starting the course. Any late payment is subject to a £15 administration charge. If you are unable to pay the balance for whatever reason please contact the Bare Arms team before the 14 day point.

3. Accommodation. Accommodation at Monkton Wylde Court is arranged and paid for on behalf of the students via ‘disbursement’ payments. As Monkton Wylde Court is a charity, it isn’t required to charge VAT, whereas Bare Arms is. Any accommodation or food charge is passed by Bare Arms onto the student (A Disbursement) without the addition of any services, and therefore no VAT is added.
As a result Bare Arms is not liable for any problems with accommodation or food, but will represent and support the student if any problems arise.

4. Criminal Records. In line with the passage at the top of the page, it is illegal for anyone who has been convicted of a criminal offence and sentenced to more than 3 years, to handle any firearms, and as such are prohibited from the Theatrical Firearms Course (TFC).
