Great to see FRC doing so well in this competition,
3 Gold, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze.
well done Fermoy shooters.

 

Thanks to all the guys and gals in Fermoy Rifle club for hosting the NASRPC this past weekend. The sun was shining, the BBQ was lit, the craic was good and some great scores got recorded.

As the last heat for National Team Selection before the World Cup there was a lot of interest in the GR1500 scores – which, as always in Fermoy, were huge – we saw some of those that will be representing Ireland in the IGRF World Cup in less than two weeks post new personal bests – which shows their preparations are well on track.
But it wasn’t all 1500s – we recorded over 70 new personal bests across the rest of the disciplines.
There’s something in the water in Fermoy!!
We’ll see those of you shooting the preshoot for the World Cup next weekend – and everyone else the weekend after.
Only 9 more sleeps!!!!!

Information Received From The NASRPC.

 NASRPC Advisory – Usage of Restricted Firearms

 by Gerry | Mar 5, 2016

At a recent NASRPC event, an issue arose regarding the use of a restricted firearm belonging to another competitor.

For context, a competitor’s restricted firearm malfunctioned earlier in the day, and they wished to use an identical firearm in the same calibre, so he could compete in an important match.  This “substitute” firearm was not licensed to him.

After some discussion, the competitor withdrew, as the legal position of this request was unclear.

To clarify this position for the future, we decided to consult a barrister who is also a shooter, for guidance and to seek advice.

We have now received his advice, which states that although there would seem to be a discrepancy between the primary legislation and the SI, which deals with the use of firearms on the range, in all cases, the primary legislation trumps the secondary legislation, that is the SI.

Therefore the NASRPC committee wishes to council the members and the clubs that in the case of restricted firearms, only the person with a firearms certificate for the specific firearm may use that firearm on shooting ranges. A restricted firearm may not be shared with any other shooter, even though that shooter may be licensed for the same class/make/model of firearm, of the same calibre.

Munster League 2016. Next Leg.

The next leg of the Munster League will take place on Sunday 20/03/2016 at Munster Target Shooting Club in Ballyhoura,
