Dear members and friends

Please forward this to anyone who might be interested.

A meeting of the Shooting Sports federation of Ireland will be held in Abbeyleix on
Saturday at 1pm on March 21st. This will address the legal and other difficulties facing
the shooting community.  Shooters from all disciplines and organisations are
encouraged to attend.  The Shooting Sports Federation of Ireland is a new umbrella
body for shooting organisations.  Legal representation will be present to advise on
relevant matters.

You have to wonder… would they only stop when there’s a shooting governing body for everyone in Ireland who holds a firearms licence? And I don’t mean one for all 200,000 of us, I mean 200,000 governing bodies – one for each of us 😀
