Country Sports Ireland has developed a unique, new national shooting competency course that will equip learners with a comprehensive knowledge of shooting sports, relevant legislation and safe shooting practices.

The Country Sports Ireland Firearms Safety Course will be of particular interest to newcomers to shooting sports who wish to demonstrate competence when applying for a firearms certificate but may also help more experienced shooters develop their knowledge and enjoyment of shooting sports generally.

A certificate of competence is issued to learners who successfully complete a practical shooting assessment – where the emphasis is on safety rather than accuracy. There is no formal written assessment required.

The Country Sports Ireland Firearms Safety Course is delivered by fully trained and experienced instructors at Country Sports Ireland affiliated shooting ranges and clay target shooting grounds nationally.
