    Cheers Lee! I must give him a ring tomorrow and see how he's doing.

    Have not received your pm by the way?

    Just to say that I have not forgotten about sorting out the legal bits just been a wee bit busy elsewhere (trying to earn a crust) at the moment!

    My Partner and I regularly come to Torre and enjoy the occasional bit of clay shooting in the UK, on a very informal fun and enjoyable basis. We would both like to be able to do some in Spain when there but obviously don't have guns and so would need to borrow / hire.
    I would imagine there should be a potentially large market for a club offering lessons, 'walk-in' shooting, competitions etc. if in the right location and setting. The establishment we use in Wales has gone from a somewhat amateur set-up 10 years ago to quite a nice little business for its new owner, and attracts shooters from all over the UK and has regular visitors from abroad. One keen chap spends 2 weeks there every year........commitment or what.
    We are prepared to travel the 4 hours there simply because of the setting and the current owner.

    There's your challenge someone!!!!!!!!!1

    I asked a general question in my local fishing shop in Cartagena which also sells guns. I was told that anyone joining a club like the Tiro Olimpico in Media Legua just outside Cartagena would be given help getting the right paperwork.

    Finally, following the eternal delay I have some information regarding the acquisition of the relevant E9 (shotgun) license...and the necessary National shooting permit (for clay shooting only...Hunting licenses are issued per province)

    For those holding a UK Shotgun license... it is necessary to register the license in Spain and to acquire a Federation of Olympic Sports permit (allowing the transport and shooting of Clay targets throughout Spain)

    Individually, this price could be as much as 400 euros but as a group, I have worked a fixed price of 135 euros inclusive of all applicable taxes. (You are able to do this yourself and I would suspect a bit cheaper but from my own point of view, I wouldn't have a clue where to go or where to start!)

    For those without a license of any type, it is necessary to sit an examination (yikes) in Alicante (in Spanish, but you are allowed to take an approved translator). The exam is 20 questions out of 500 with an 80% pass mark required and simply covers simple gun handling knowledge...(I am told!) This exam apparently costs and additional 90 euros to the above...

    I am also awaiting a listing of all Clay and Trap events taking place in Spain over the next few months so as soon as it arrives, I will advise...but I am acquiring a few traps to set up some local friendly (and have-a-go) sessions within the next couple of months (I hope)

    If anyone wants any further details or wants to become involved in this, please let me know...

    Cheers.

    A simple question regarding 'Sporting Clays'...if a simple easily accessible Clay Shoot where to be set up with a 'try it out' scenario providing the guns, cartridges and clays for say 10 Euros (Men & Women) , how many people would be interested?

    Also, on a similar basis if a weekly 30 bird sporting layout was set out with beginner, intermediate and experienced levels costing say 25 Euros...(including clays and cartridges) would anyone be interested in this also?

    We are forming a club for those interested.

    Hi Lee,

    Glad to see you are still around but I understand what you are saying about the site!!!

    Unfortunately it looks as though most of those that showed intrest before have either the same opinion or have joined the exodus but we intend to progress anyway...so some hand traps are on order and some land owners contacted!

    I've also been having a look at the laser clay shooting situation and will be trying it out over the next week or so...Whilst I don't think it replaces the 'real thing' it certainly looks interesting as a low cost bit of fun...Have you ever tried it out?

    Anyhow, I'll keep you updated but I'm not sure whether or not I have your email...can you pm it to me on the other site...

    Cheers

    Mike

    Hi Mike

    Don't worry, I can think of several keen folk on my Urb, and good news spreads fast!

    Keep away from laser clays, you mess up your target perception and leads, I used to help out with novice training and "Corporate Days" when we used it my shooting went down the pan for months after (

    My email is LB at ELBEE dot ORG (caps for clarity only and change the "at" and "dot" obviously) if you drop me a line I'll give you my landline and mobile nos. Am in Scotland ATM at the g/fs house but home (Ryannair permitting) tomorrow evening. Maybe meet up for a beer/chat sometime soon, the other site seems to be down ATM.
