If you are a target shooting club secretary or official the new licensing process is going to save you a fair bit of time and paperwork.
At last, the requirement for you to act as referee for any club member renewing their Firearm Certificate has been abolished, so if your club has (say) 200 members, this will save you the time, postage and effort required to complete forty forms every year.
Of course your members will still need referees, but now there are NO extra forms to send to them to get lost in the post, or to delay the process. Furthermore, the requirement for a bank official, MP, Doctor etc for a countersignatory for a shotgun certificate has been abolished – – praise be !
You can find the forms and the BASC guidance on their completion at –http://www.basc.org.uk/en/departments/firearms/certificate-forms-and-fees.cfm
Your shooting organisation can help and advise if you need it –

There are lots of exciting things going on at PSA at the moment, we’re building a new range and a new website. Brave we know, but we hope the new website will be able to free up a little extra time for the committee members as well as improve communication and social interaction between us all.
A few of the new website features are outlined below:
- There’s a news section, so we can all keep track of what’s going on in the club.
- A brand new forum so we can all get involved, share our latest triumphs at the range or chat about the merits of our reloading sciences.
- An events calendar to help us remember where we need to be.
- A members only page with links to private club information (you need to sign up to the website and be approved before you can view it).
If you have any problems using the website, or if you have any suggestions for things you’d like to see, please let us know in the forum.
