    Stirkoke Rifle Club would like to know if there is interest in the Wick area to form an indoor air gun target club. If you are interested please get in touch. If there are sufficient numbers we can arrange an initial meeting.

    Thanks to everyone who showed an interest. There will be a meeting on Monday 2nd May at 7:30 pm in the Old School Tannach to see a way forward.
    You can find more information on the new regulations on The British Association for Shooting & Conservation website and search for Airgun Licensing in Scotland.

    Anyone who looked at the BASC website previously should note that more recent information has now been added and Element 2 will be of particular interest to anyone who does not hold a current Firearms Certificate but wishes to keep an air weapon.
    The club has applied for "Approved Air Weapon Club" from Police Scotland.

    Sorry I got interrupted!
    I have been in touch with Police Scotland to inquire about the progress of our application. I was told that Club applications have not been looked at yet but are due to start looking at them from 3rd October.
    I'll be in touch when I know more.

    I have again been in touch with Police Scotland as it has been 4 months since our application.They told me that they are waiting for the Scottish Government to set the criteria for Air Weapon Clubs before moving ahead.
    Stirkoke Rifle Club has secured funding from Spirit of Caithness to set up for air weapons but are unable to access these until approval is granted.
    Anyone who has applied for a licence since 1st Nov will not have one granted before the January deadline and if in possession after that date you will be liable to prosecution.
    If you find yourself in that position pass the weapon to someone with a firearm/shotgun certificate for safe keeping until your licence comes through.This advise comes from The British Association for Shooting & Conservation.
    I have contacted our MSP to see if she can help.

    Date to be announced
