Killroot ABT Shoot 23rd March 2019

'The management of Kilroot CTC would like to apologise to those shooters who unfortunately were unable to complete their 100 targets on Saturday past due to the break down of both traps.   We did manage to get both traps functioning again but it was too late to finish the shoot.  The circumstances have been reported to the Board of the UCPSA via the Secretary and we await their decision regarding the standing of the scores etc.  As soon as the decision of the Board is received Kilroot CTC will follow their directions.'


Please also note that the Tuesday evening ABT practice at Kilroot CTC will commence on Tuesday 2 April 2019 from approximately 6.00 pm.  All are welcome.



European Firearms Pass

Home Office Update

 To summarise, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, you will no longer be able to apply for a European Firearms Pass (EFP) or use one to travel to the EU with your firearm or shotgun. Before travelling, you will need to check and follow the licensing requirements of any EU country you will be in with your firearm after 31 October.

We’ve recently updated our guidance on GOV.UK to outline this, which you may find useful. 

Changes to European Firearms Pass

If we leave the EU without a deal, European Firearms Passes (EFP's) would no longer be validfor UK residents travelling to the EU, or for EU residents travelling to the UK, with their firearms or shotguns.

What this means for police forces

The changes would mean UK police forces would no longer issue EFP's to UK residents who are wishing to travel to the EU with their firearm.

Sponsors of EU visitors with firearms would still have to apply to their local police force for a Visitor's permit, but it would no longer be  a legal requirement to show a valid EFP as part of this process. The police will continue to assess an applicant's fitness to hold a firearm as part consideration of the Visitor's Permit application, so current firearms controls will not be weakened.

Apart from changes to EFP's, the UK's domestic firearms licensing arrangements will not be affected by leaving the EU.

What this means for UK residents

UK residents travelling to, or due to be in, an EU country with their firearm after 29th March will need to check licensing requirements with the country they're travelling to. this is particular;y important for anyone taking in competitions or events shortly aftert we leave the EU.

Countries may have varying lead times for applying for licenses, so we are advising that people consider checking requirements now. Without the proper licenses, people may not be allowed to travel with firearms.

What this means for EU residents.

EFP's would no longer be recognised for EU visitors to the UK. Their sponsors will apply for a Visitor's Permit like now, but will need to show a valid EFP as part of this process.

Next Steps

We’d like you to share this information with your members, to make them aware of these changes in case we leave the EU without a deal. If police forces receive any enquiries or applications from UK residents for EFPs, they can direct people to further information on Gov.uk

DTL HCIT, British Open and Europeans

Congratulatuions to all the UCPSA members who attended these events and especially to all the Northern Ireland team. Once again our shooters from by far the smallest country rose to the challenage with some fantastic results. Home International saw individual success for Neville Bradley senior high gun and Bernard Cassidy Senior runner up after a six way shoot off on 299 for the top place.

The British Open saw solid individual performances again especially from Dermot McQuillan winning "A" class wth a PB 100/299. Geoff Dale was NI high gun with a 100/298 and Bernard Cassidy with 595/600 was NI high gun of the two days. Other two day trophies went to Joshua Shortt (Juniors) and Ivan Williamson (Veteran). The coveted Bernie Larkin trophy was won for a third time by our Northern Ireland squad 1 (D Bell, W Armstrong, R Sloan, G Dale and N Bradley) This is for highest scoring squad over the two days and was won after a shoot of with Ireland squad 1.

Europeans on day three and four saw big successes, top score 598/600 was Darren Bell and Bernard Cassidy, the two Northern Ireland shooters were top of the leader board and had to shoot off for the European Champion and runner Up, Darren took the win 25/75 to 25/73. Big shooting and Bernard proved our most consistent shooter over the four days. And another European Champion, yes, in the ladies Katie McQuillan did not lose a target in four days shooting but the European scores of 295 and 298 would see her become the Ladies European Champion, at just 21 years of age.

The juniors Joshua Shortt, Scott Magill and 15 yr old Cody Brady shot fantastic to claim a team bronze, and Joshua also took individual junior bronze. Katie McQuillan added bronze in "A" class to her collection after a shoot of with Scott Magill.

Thanks again to all the team again showing Northern ireland to punch well above its weight in shooting sports, congratulations also to our neighbours Ireland whose team also has a fantastic four days, a lot of silverware came back across the Irish Sea!
