Latest news and shooting tips

Why do you need shooting insurance?

It’s easy to assume that any firearms you own will be covered under your home insurance. However, in most cases your equipment will not be covered whilst out of the house and on a shoot. That’s why taking out a specialist Shooting Insurance policy to protect your guns and other equipment against loss and damage is important.


SportsCover Direct’s annual policy can not only provide you up to £50,000 cover for your equipment, but also protects you against costly third-party public liability claims. These could come about should you injure another person or injure their property whilst on a shoot.


Unlike many of the official shooting organisations, where an expensive joining fee includes insurance protection plus a number of other insignificant extras, our cover provides just the protection you need at a competitive price.
