Federation of Maltese Target Shooters established

The Association of Arms Collectors and Target Shooters (AACTS) and the Association of Maltese Arms Collectors and Shooters (AMACS) have announced that they have jointly set up a federation to cover all forms of target shooting sports other than clay pigeon shooting.

The Federation of Maltese Target Shooters (FMTS) unites over 1,000 members and over 90 per cent of licensed target shooters. The objectives of the FMTS are complimentary to those of the Malta Sport Shooting Federation (MSSF) which has achieved excellent results internationally in clay pigeon shotgun disciplines, FMTS said in a statement.

The announcement was made by AACTS president Neville Montanaro Gauci and AMACS head Stephen A. Petroni following the inauguration of the new AMACS premises in Tignè Point by Parliamentary Secretary Jason Azzopardi.

Petroni thanked Azzopardi and Albert Mamo, the Commissioner of Lands, for making possible the association’s homecoming to Tignè after an absence of 14 years.

Parliamentary Secretary Azz­opardi expressed his satisfaction at the manner in which this prime property was being put to good use by AMACS.

AMACS was set up on June 12, 1985 while AACTS was founded in 2002.
