A major nationwide survey is being carried out on behalf of a group of organisations covering all types of shooting in Britain. They include the CPSA, NRA and NSRA, as well as BASC, Countryside Alliance, and the British Shooting Sports Council.
The purpose of the questionnaire is to allow estimates to be made of the scale of shooting sports, the environmental and economic impact, the number of jobs supported, both directly and through the supply chain, and the social benefits. Information gathered from this exercise will be used to support efforts to protect the sport.
Please take a little time to complete the survey.
