The Council’s focus is upon the legislation and regulation which affects shooting sports, and especially the lawful possession of firearms. It draws together representatives from the entire range of shooting disciplines, from competitive clay target shooting and rifle shooting, both smallbore and fullbore, to airgun shooting, practical shooting, muzzle loading and live quarry shooting with rifle, shotgun and air rifle in all its various aspects. Fully involved in the Council’s work are organisations representing shooting grounds, shooting instructors and the gun trade.

The Council’s Annual General Meeting is held in March and regular meetings of the Council are held seven times a year. Representation of the Council’s views to official bodies such as the Home Office and the police is undertaken by the Secretary.

In a sport as diverse as shooting there is frequently a wide range of opinions, and while the Council will always seek to present a unified voice on issues of importance through consent and co-operation, member associations are free to express their own views or conduct their own lobbying and representation in parallel to BSSC’s work
