STEEL SHOT INFORMATION
The club is now, by law, required to use steel shot as the shot falls over wetlands. This means all practices and competitions will be alternative shot only and anybody found using lead shot will be stopped shooting, warned and disqualified from competition.
For more information on the lead ban, see the full legislation at:-
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH IT IS MANDATORY TO WEAR SAFETY GLASSES FOR ALL SCTA COMPETITIONS, IT WILL NOW BE CLUB POLICY THAT ALL SHOOTS INCLUDING PRACTICES WILL REQUIRE BOTH EAR AND EYE PROTECTION, BY COMPETITORS, REFEREES AND SPECTATORS BEYOND THE MARKED FENCE LINE OF THE SHOOTING GROUND.
Cartridges will be available at the ground from Angus Cameron. It should be noted that they are from personal stock and will therefore be available in small numbers for visitors, beginners and other shooters who don't have shotgun certificates. Regular steel shooters and local members should buy direct from suppliers such as R.MacLeod & Son (Tain), Highland Shooting Centre (near Bonar Bridge) or other stockist.
