You will have seen the UKAHFT 2018 calendar starts with a Preseason shoot on 29th April at Dunfermline Airgun Club, which is in Central Scotland just north of Edinburgh. Location is west of Dunfermline, at Rosebank Mains Farm. Approach from the west from the M876 over the Clacks Bridge, along the A907, or east from Dunfermline town having come over the new Forth bridge. The farm postcode is KY12 9HU. Directions on our website are here: Directions Google street view of the farm entrance here (you can zoom out from the street view directly to the map location, to start your Maps journey planning): Google Maps The easiest way coming from the south is M6, M74, M73, M80, M876 over the Clacks bridge then A907. We now have an 'Air Weapon' Licensing scheme in Scotland. This means that to be in possession of an airgun once you come over the border you need either: 1) an Air Weapon Certificate (the license), or 2) a Visitor Permit issued by the police in your name, or 3) if you have a Shotgun or Firearm Certificate which was issued or renewed before 1st Jan 2016 you are covered by that. If your SGC or FAC was sent or renewed after 1/1/17 then you need to be on a permit. UKAHFT and DAC will apply for visitor permits as a group on behalf of visiting shooters, if you don't have options 1 or 3 above. Because the police licensing people need 6-8 weeks to process the permits we need to have you booked in by the end of February at the very latest. Please apply through UKAHFT booking forms (out 1st Jan) in the normal way as early as you can if you need to be covered by the permit. The permit process isn't free but is covered by the booking fee. To get the permits we need to have some extra info as well as the normal details you provide on the ukahft form - These are: date of birth, nationality, and the address you are staying at in Scotland (hotel etc). We will also need an email address to confirm the permit issue. The police will do a criminal record check on applicants - if you have been convicted of any offense in the past the detail of this must also be declared. This isn't necessarily a problem in getting a permit but my advice based on what we have seen for license applications is that if you have something recent then it may not be successful. If booking in on behalf of a 14-17 year-old junior for a permit in their name, the parent or guardian will have to sign the actual permit form. In this case please advise Pete and we can send you the permit form page to collect your signature. 9-13 year olds need to shoot supervised hence can not have a permit themselves. Once the police issue the permit we will confirm that you will be covered to travel to Scotland - you won't actually need to have the permit on your person as it's like your driving license - you're on the police computer. The permit will last from Wed to Wed to cover people's travel arrangements. If you want to come earlier or stay longer you will have to do your own visitor permit application. If you want to purchase any airguns during the visit you will need your own permit also. None of the extra information collected will be held by UKAHFT or DAC after the permit application process. The shoot will last one session and be limited to roughly 90 people, starting at 10 AM. There will be a practise shoot the day before on Saturday 28th at Bedlay Airgun Club starting at 12PM, where you can get used to shooting uphill Their postcode is G67 4HH, 30 miles from Dunfermline club. If you are coming up the M74 from England they are on the way to Dunfermline. Greg Morss Dunfermline HFT captain.
