UK-wide firearms licensing support

SACS is renowned for our expertise in UK-wide firearms licensing support. With a decades-long track record in firearms licensing; our successes for members on firearm certificates, shotgun certificates and (Scottish) air weapon certificates are legendary.

SACS is an active member of regional Firearms Licensing Groups and sits on the British Shooting Sports Council. We have strong working relationships with licensing teams across the UK, from Northern Ireland and Scotland to Cornwall and Kent.

Our firearms team is highly experienced in firearms technical and licensing matters. Our senior Firearms Adviser is Fraser Lamb, who recently retired as Head of Firearms Licensing for Police Scotland and representative on the National Police Chiefs Council Firearms and Explosives Working Group (NPCC FELWG). He is respected UK-wide for his experience and knowledge of the police licensing process. Fraser comes from a gamekeeping family background and is a lifetime keen shooter. If you have a firearms licensing problem, then Fraser is the person you need to have fighting your corner

Firearms advocacy and threats to shooting

Believing that partnership working can be more effective, SACS actively works with sister representative bodies UK-wide such as APSI, BASC, CA, CPSA, DWA, FCSA, GTA, HBSA, ICSI, MLAGB, NRA, NSRA, PSRA, IGRF, SAGBNI & UKPSA and others on firearms advocacy issues and political and legislative challenges to gun use and ownership.

When it comes to making a stand for our members and their rights, SACS believes in organisations working together in genuine partnership. SACS is not-for-profit and non-commercial; no egos, commercial gimmicks or organisational politics here - just professional hard graft for members and all shooting sports, target and quarry.
