Thanks to those who've responded!
So I'm combining two of the emails that I've acted upon:

OK, I've added the follwing lines to my devfs.conf:
own xpt0 root:usb #gid of those who need to mount a usb device
perm xpt0 0660
so now I get this:
# ll /dev/ | grep xpt0
crw-rw---- 1 root usb 104, 0 1 лют 23:46 xpt0
this looks good, but I still can't mount the /dev/da0s1 without su rights.
Then I do a su, mount the device, unmount it - and now I can mount the device
without su rights....
OK, that sort of works, but the su part really has to go.... How can I fix
