UK Shooting News spotted this (presumably deliberate) howler on the British Shooting Twitter page earlier today:
Has anyone told the NRA, NSRA, CPSA, UKPSA… etc?
British Shooting is only concerned with airgun, smallbore and clay pigeon shooting at international level. It is not a governing body: it doesn’t set rules, though it does enforce the International Shooting Sports Federation’s rules at events it organises under those rules – much in the same way rifle clubs shooting at Bisley under NRA rules uphold those rules.
The organisation’s own website states: “British Shooting is an umbrella body, that supports the sovereign National Governing Bodies.”
While it’s great that they’re reaching out and advertising part of the sport to the wider world through social media, perhaps someone ought to have a quiet word in their shell-likes.
