Register

Welcome to Competitors Forum Registration, please take a few minutes to read the entire page as this will make things simpler for all concerned:

  1. Username – this can not be changed and you need to remember it each time you log-in, so choose carefully! Lots of people use their email address for this.
  2. Real Name – this is what the forum will display on your posts.
  3. Email – we need this to register you, it is not visible to others.
  4. Discretionary admission – given the nature of the subject matter we aim to limit participation to active practical shotgun competitors, please help by filling out all fields.
  5. Requests are manually administered so please be patient, we might all be out on the range but we will get to your request as soon as possible.
  6. By registering you have agreed to abide by the forum rules posted below.

If your application is accepted you will receive an email with a link to set your password, then you’re in!

Please provide some supporting info to demonstrate that you are an active competitor, here are some suggestions, you don't need to send all of them but we need enough to verify that you compete:
1. Results - Links to your name on the results webpages of matches from the last 12 months, higher level matches are the easiest for us to verify.
2. Documentation - Scan your competition licence or shotgun safety certification, if you want to use this method let us know in your message and we will reply giving you an email address where you can send a jpeg or pdf.
3. References - The names of people already registered on this forum as active competitors who will vouch for you when we contact them.

By hitting send I confirm that I agree to abide by the forum rules.
