In December we:


  • Answered members’ enquiries on the new questionnaires being sent to all landowners, relating to the reintroduction of sporting rates in Scotland in 2017.
  • Attended the steering group meeting of the Code of Good Shooting Practice.
  • Attended a drop-in session at Valley Arms Ruthin, where people were able to question North Wales Police Firearms Enquiry Officers in regards to issues with Shotgun or Firearms Certificates.
  • Met a range of stakeholders to discuss the future for wildfowling on Findhorn Bay in Moray. The introduction of a permit system, proposed by wildfowling interests, is widely seen as the way forward.
  • Advised a member regarding some unusual interpretation of firearms legislation and guidance by his Firearms Enquiry Officer.
  • Helped a member find a suitable gunsmith to carry out modifications to his rifle, including what questions to ask and what to be aware of when setting up the new trigger unit.
  • Delivered a detailed coaching session for a member who privately booked the ST-2 simulator.
  • Helped a member find someone to carry out a squirrel control programme (trapping) on his shoot.
  • Supplied the ST-2 simulator to a BASC member on who had hired it for a private coaching session.
