De Nederlandse Parcours Schutters Associatie is de Nederlandse vertegenwoordiging van IPSC, de International Practical Shooting Confederation.

IPSC is een dynamische tak van schietsport, die wereldwijd beoefend wordt door jong en oud, man en vrouw, op binnen- en op buitenbanen. In circa 100 landen meten schutters zich met elkaar op nationale en internationale wedstrijden. IPSC kan worden geschoten met handvuurwapens of schoudervuurwapens.

De NPSA is tevens aangesloten bij de KNSA.

Dear Shooting friends,

From June 4-11, the first World Shoot IPSC Rifle will take place in Russia. For a long time it was unclear whether athletes from The Netherlands could travel to Russia (and back home) with their gun because of the European sanctions against Russia. At the beginning of April 2017, the confirmation of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs finally came that the suspension of sports weapons by athletes was not covered by sanctions.

To our big surprise, the same Ministry five weeks later announced, after consultation at European level, that they have changed their minds and rejected the requested export licenses. The NPSA / IPSC The Netherlands immediately consulted a law firm who specializes in these matters. After the necessary internal consultation we decided to make a formal legal case against the Dutch Ministry. The formal objection against the decision was only possible after the rejections were actually received and that made that time was limited. Thursday June 1st the first athletes from The Netherlands will leave for Moscow. The court case on behalf of our athletes was on Tuesday May 30th.

Today, Wednesday 31st we have received excellent news. The court has decided that the Dutch Ministry must grant the necessary export licenses!! This means that the Dutch athletes can participate in the match with their own gun after all.

We would like to thank our lawyers (B&A Law, Amsterdam, The Netherlands). Without their help this would not have been possible!

Svetoslav KostadinovIt's a great news, indeed. But, why do we always have to make things in the harder way... Every time when a big mach is coming there are similar idiotic issues around one or another region and we all have to struggle for some basic rights.

Didier VerbekeEn daarmee houdt een regering zich bezig, maar criminelen ontwapenen, dat kan niet, de wapens zijn immers illegaal, dus we ambeteren de vergunningenhouders!
