As a side note, if you should decide to go ahead, make sure to be right there controlling the persons use of the firearm, as in today's lawsuit world, you might be held liable should they injure someone with it. I do not know how many times I have seen someone with a firearm at a range, take the gun outside the pit/shooting area, or turn it sideways while in the shooting area, make sure they always point it down range.

The gun range doesn't know the answer. No one here can tell you the answer because the question is one involving the law.

Why not simply ask the ATF, your state's controlling authority and the Sheriff in the country where you plan to do this?

You know, if you go by what is said on a forum, that is no defense if things go badly.

Besides that, allowing anyone to possess any firearm you own or control without knowing everything about them when it comes to their ability to possess said firearm according to the law puts you at risk.

So why put yourself at risk? Find out from sources that can be cited so that if something does go wrong (and Murphy is all over the place) that you aren't holding the bag.

All it would take is for a rico or some other mishap to send one of them for medical care and that could initiate a lot of questions, the answers to which could change your name to defendant.

The resources are there, an internet forum is not one of them.

Oh, was the question about convicted felons? Strange. I thought it was about some people visiting from out of the country, just as it said. Silly me.
