Brian Enos's Forums... Maku mozo!

all Dynamic shooting disciplines are about to be prohibited in the Net

Recommended Posts

Hello all

I do not "too much a beliver" of internet petitions, but I got this email from Double Alpha Academy ( owned by Shaul Kircsh as you know long- time shooter, he was second placed in many IPSC World shoots, right after Eric Grauffel)

Another thing is that for Administration of this forum- If that is not a correct place to post this - please correct me.

Dear fellow IPSC shooters and friends,

As many of you have heard already, IPSC shooting (in fact all Dynamic shooting disciplines) are about to be prohibited in the Netherlands!

This new law will be voted on in a matter of weeks, and if it passes – will mean the end of our sport in Holland, and who knows – this decision may well spread quickly across the EU.

As you can imagine, the NPSA (the Dutch IPSC organization) is mobilizing every possible resource to fight this unjust proposed law, but it is a desperate battle. The odds are stacked against us.

We need your help!

There is a petition being signed (online) which will be submitted along with other material as we try to make our case for our sport.

You can help by going online and signing this petition. The more signatures we have, the better.

Please also take a moment to forward this email to anyone you can think of who could generate more signatures, your shooting range, your club, your federation, your local gunsmiths who may be able to send it on to their mailing list. Post it online on any website you have access to.

We want to show that IPSC is a serious sport, with thousands of participants worldwide.

Please take a minute to log onto this site:


Scroll down, where it says “Ik” – you fill in your name

- Where it says ”wonede te” you fill in your city and country.

- Tick the checkbox if you want to allow your name to be shown on the list.

- Enter your email address

- And click the yellow box “ondertekenen” to sign the petition.

Many thanks for your participation in our fight.

Best Regards,

Saul Kirsch

General Manager

Double-Alpha Academy B.V.

I've read about this on several sites...but what is the back story? Is this just another push from a liberal, socialist agenda, fun police run amok, or what?

You can use google translation to translate the entire site. Not perfect, but understandable.

Over here, there are no gun rights, but gun privileges. We're fine with that, as long as we can keep doing our favourite sport...

Short update: Yesterday the Committee for Security and Justice of the Parliament reviewed the proposed ban on dynamic shooting sports, which ended in a majority not in favour of said ban. This means that (at least for now) IPSC and related stuff can continue to exist in The Netherlands.

And we really do appreciate your support on this one. Thanks guys and gals!

Done, but this is really sad that this is even an issue. Like someone said above, another country losing gun rights, really sad.

BTW, Google asks if you want to translate.
