    Hi, it is with regard to the regulations of the GC (who apparently control firearms in Spain) that I am attempting to find out all the requirements. Mike

    Default clay shooting

    I am here for a couple of weeks.We own property and come and go. I shoot at home and would also be interested in helping to set up, or just attend, a shoot.

    Let me know if I can help or just keep me informed of what may be happening.

    Hi Mike,

    Glad to see you're making progress...

    Have you heard anything about swapping a UK SGC for the Spanish equivalent? I've heard that there's some kind of similar system to the driving licences and that you can (if resident here) swap your UK licence for a Spanish one, any idea if it's true or not?

    Default Clay Shooting

    Hi Lee,

    I'll make a point of checking that out when I speak with the administrator...but it probably won't be until later in the week as things are pretty busy at the moment.

    Cheers

    Hi...just a quick update...I've spoken to the Gestoria previously mentioned and he is going to research all requirements for me, including: -

    UK Shotgun Certificate use in Spain?
    International Firearms Certificates?
    Spanish Shotgun/ Firearms licensing



    plus

    Clay Shooting ground (Temp) regs in Spain
    Land owner requirements
    Noise problems or issues
    Insurance

    As soon as I have some further info I will report it.

    Sounds like you've got it well under control Mike but if there's anything I can do to help just let me know. I did PM you on the other site BTW.
