The Shooting UK Forum is changing

If you're a Forum user then you should know that our location for group chat is changing. Read on to stay involved.

We’re really sorry to be the bearer of bad news regarding the ShootingUK Forum.

The Forum has for many years been a source of pride to the ShootingUK team – it is a warm, helpful community where advice is freely given and many friendships have been made, not just via screens and keyboards but out on in the field too.

Nevertheless unfortunately the time has come to close the doors, for a variety of reasons.

Under the terms of the new privacy legislation (GDPR) that comes into force this week, any holders of private data are required to keep that data safely and securely, with huge fines in the event of improper use or data breaches.

In our view, the technology underpinning the ShootingUK Forum is not sufficient to meet our responsibilities under this legislation.

So today I’m letting you know that the forum will close in its current form on Thursday May 24.

However, you can still continue to chat under the ShootingUK banner at a new Facebook Group we have set up which you can join here. 

We’d like to offer sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to the ShootingUK forum over the years, to everyone who has offered advice, made jokes, arranged meet-ups or in any way built this community.
