      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

Shame about markyate club . it was a shooting ground just off the old A5 . terry does old club at one time i believe . dave welham used to look after the targets and course for a while . it did a few showdowns . but after the last one held there i was told they wanted to charge the BFTA £ 2000 for the pleasure .when they held a GP there it was my first qualification with a 36 ex 40 . when i found out there was to be a GP there and that it was a public ground ( £3.50 ) i went up there on the two previous saturdays to the shoot and practiced on the ground getting used to the wind there and it paid off by letting me qualify for the first time . i had to go to near manchester for the the showdown shoot . got my ass kicked out pretty quickly ???
