Firearms UK is an Association campaigning for the protection of firearms ownership within the UK. Primary objectives are to encourage unity and positive action within the shooting community and to promote and defend individual firearms ownership and the shooting sports.
Our website aims to provide a repertoire of news and information and to serve as an aide memoir for educating those on the fringes of our communities, such as friends and family members who are less knowledgeable about firearms and their use within the UK.
Urgent or Important Updates
This May will see the elections to the European Parliament take place across Europe and represents a crucial opportunity for law abiding firearms owners and enthusiasts to engage and assert our views as part of the democratic process. To this end we have now launched a new campaign to increase awareness over the threats to shooting and firearms ownership from within the EU and encourage all those impacted to lobby their representatives to ensure our views as law abiding firearms owners and shooters are not ignored.
NEW Shooting Survey
A new survey as now been launched to prepare an updated report on the benefits of shooting sports to the UK. We urge you all to take 10 minutes out of your day and complete this short survey. If you are pressed for time you can complete the short version, or complete it with more detail.
