The committee have decided that this closed FB group will be removed over the coming weeks.
Future posts will be on the clubs FB page.

Sussex Sextette shooting at Bisley....the drone flyby shots should be interesting when photos/video are published.

Interesting use of photo in this article…

[Picture on article has been changed]
GPs to monitor mental health of all patients who own guns
GPs are required from this month to keep a record of all patients who own a gun – and to inform police if any of these people develop mental health problems…


Peter Watson. I find this a somewhat worrying escalation and possibly against the data protection rights of the individual.

Mike Barlow. No we sign away that right when we apply for a licence in this context. What worries me is that the public think that people can still legally own hand guns (pistols) in the UK (Black Powder excluded - obvs).

Mike Barlow. One voice of reason.

I think the replies show a fair bit of misuderstanding. Lots of people own guns and take part in perfectly legal, very enjoyable sport of target shooting - myself included. It is an olympic sport you know - do you want to ban it worldwide now ? Some of us even own some land and need to get rid of vermin with them. Gun ownership is decided by a very rigorous interview and scrutiny, you don't just fill in a form and get it. It used to be that the GP had to fill out a tedious report, funded by patient. Now you just have to flag records and tell Firearms police if you are worried. They will then request a report - and you can charge either them or the patient. If you have it flagged on the persons notes then you know they own a gun and to discuss it.
How is this different from telling the DVLA that a person you feel is unfit to drive is still driving ?

January 10, 2016 at 5:21pm

Mike Kettle. A very useful physiotherapy tool for people with wrist problems! I'll let you have the instruction manual.
January 10, 2016 at 5:23pm

Peter Watson. Do I need any health & safety training to use it.
