PROTECTING, PROMOTING AND REPRESENTING THE UK GUN TRADE SINCE 1891
The GTA's mission is to promote, protect and represent the UK gun trade. It carries out this remit at all levels, from representation at Government to day-to-day queries with Firearms Licensing Officers and local authorities.
The Gun Trade Association is committed to supporting businesses involved in the sporting, recreational and professional gun trade in the United Kingdom. From manufacture, wholesale, retail and repair of guns and ammunition to the provision of shooting opportunities in the field and shooting grounds, our members cover the great heritage of the British shooting industry.
We protect, promote and represent the industry at all levels - internationally, nationally and locally.
Formed in 1891 the Association has a great heritage but is highly focused on those topics that affect the Trade today. Whether your company is involved in traditional gunmaking crafts or innovative technologies for future systems we will provide the support you need to grow and extend your business.
The GTA has a close relationship with a number of carefully selected service providers.
