as you may have heard, there is currently a shooting range for rifles, pistols and tactical shotguns in development.
AACTS is circulating a petition urging the Government, Sports Malta and Planning Authority to endorse this project.
As one of the main Associations in Malta, we urge you to visit the Club or one of the several gunshops that have the petition available as of today and sign it including:
Tacticarms – Balzan
Merc Trading – Iklin
Magru – Rabat
Executive Guns and Ammo – Zejtun
Quantum – Rahal Il-Gdid
Lock Stock and Barrel – Sta. Venera
Guns and Target – Zebbug
Fieldsports – Mellieha
Gejtu – Siggiewi
Viper Grafix Signs – Iklin
Below is the text of the petition. It is important that you sign ONLY ONCE. However you may encourage non-shooters to sign anyway.
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, Sports Shooting Athletes and Enthusiasts are in favour and endorsing the development of the Shooting Range Facility project bearing application number PA/00392/21 at site (disused quarry), Triq tal-Ghaqba a.k.a. Il-Bur Ta’ L-Ghaqba, Siggiewi because:
1. It will be the first of its kind as an international standard facility in the Maltese Islands;
2. There are no other adequate, decent, and up to standard shooting range facilities that can cater for various pistol,
rifle, and dynamic shooting disciplines for the local sports shooting community to enjoy;
3. There are many promising sports shooters who have invested heavily in their equipment and dedicated hundreds
of hours of training despite lacking decent facilities. A good number of these athlete managed to achieve very good and promising overall results when participating overseas in internationally recognised disciplines;
4. We believe that after fourteen years of failed promises and rejected projects, it is high time that the local sport shooting community is given the recognition it deserves with a state-of-the-art shooting range facility for all to enjoy.
Let us all do our part so that we may have another facility to practice our sport in.
