Commonwealth Shooting Federation Championships - India Cancelled

Commonwealth Games Northern Ireland have informed us today that the Commonwealth Games India Executive Board along with Commonwealth Games Federation have cancelled the combined Shooting and Archery Commonwealth Championships scheduled for India in 2022. This is a result of the global Covid-19 situation. It is sad news for our sport but the health and safety of our shooters is worth more than any medal opportunity.

European Firearms Pass - Changes

Changes to EFPs

When the UK transition period ends, from 1 January 2021 residents of Great Britain will no longer be able to apply for a European Firearms Pass (EFP) or use one to travel to the EU with their firearm or shotgun. 

Residents of Northern Ireland will still be able to request an EFP and to use it to take a lawfully owned firearm to an EU country, including the Republic of Ireland, from 1 January 2021.

What this means for your members

Before travelling, GB residents will need to check and follow the licensing requirements of any EU country they will be in with a firearm from 1 January 2021, as well as UK import and export controls. This includes if you are in an EU country on 1 January 2021. Countries may have varying lead times for applying for licenses, so we recommend checking requirements well ahead of travelling. If you’re sponsoring an EU visitor bringing a firearm to GB, you should apply to the local police force for a visitor’s permit like now but will not need to produce the visitor’s valid EFP. Visitor’s permits issued before the transition period ends will stay valid until they expire.
