    Why should there be any problems? Isn't the UK an EU member or is it a muzzle energie issue?

    If the foot poundage power of airguns is a problem for the Italians then it will not only ba a UK but a global problem unfortunately!

    Ok now I get it.............it's the European Firearms Passport problem!

    Something must be done about it............no UK shooters at the FT Worlds would definetaly be the most boring Worlds ever...............PERIOD!

    Yep, that's the problem.

    We'll just have to rely on Italy to sort it out. They've got a year or so :)

    Good news is that if they can, we can go over there more often. Nice, especially as I can get into Tuscany in about 2 hours from here for about £60 :D

    Been to Italy twice...........beautiful country and wouldnt mind a bit going again and I really hope it's held in the Tuscany region. They got amazing countryside over there.........

    I'm sure the Italians will do something about this European Firearms Passport thing. They know the FT Worlds need UK shooters present to be a real FT Worlds ;)

    If my memory serves me right the world bench rest championship was held in italy in the recent past included the airrifle bench rest which i beleive has a 12ftlb limit so there must have been something sorted for the travelling participents I think Carl Bosworth Shoot his 110 steyr at it.
    the italian ft boy's should give the bench rest boy's a call

    Yes very true!

    The 2008 BR World Championships were held in Milan, Italy. I was there and shot in the Unlimited Class. The UK guys were there with 12ft/lbs airguns and as you correctly said Carl Boswell did shoot a Steyr LG110.

    I'm 100% positive something will be sorted out!

    Rob,

    I think I should have Carl Boswell's email address if you want to contact him maybe he can help you out regarding the procedures needed to import airguns in Italy.

    Ok found it........I could PM it to you if you want..................

    Well! I'm glad that it already is spoken by 2011 the world will be in Italy! We are deciding the region where the race will take place and even if it were not Tuscany is not a problem, we have so many beautiful places, you will not regret.

    Regarding permission to air rifle, there will be all those details as soon as possible, quietly, we are working for you :)
