      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.

      Editing your posts

      The forum's EDIT function has been changed. After making your post, you will have 30 minutes to review and edit it. After that, only Admin will be able to make edits.   Should a post NEED to be edited afterwards, email to admin@airgunforum.net the change details, the URL of the thread it applies to and if appropriate, the reason for the change. Don't forget to identify yourself and do use your registered email address to make contact. All this is necessary, as admin must be able to identify who you are and that it is your post that you wish to edit.   Admin. will make the edit if it appears necessary. Note, if you want to change something that could easily be achieved by adding a further post to the thread, you will be expected to do it.   Forum staff generally view new posts added to threads since their last visit. If a "for sale" item has been sold or a wanted item has been obtained, just add a post to the thread and it will usually be noted and the thread title will be edited appropriately. This saves members' time wading through posts that are effectively "dead".   DaveL

      Upgrade   01/16/2018

      Well it took me longer than expected and it was a bumpy road, but the forum is now upgraded to the latest version. The previous skin will no longer work with this new version, but I will check to see if there is a similar one for this version. Enjoy and if you encounter any problem just report it.

Lets start with the BFTA Masters on Saturday 5th September, you will need to have a current BFTA Registration (card) Number to enter and the cost is £6.00. It is a 40 target course and the marshalling sytem will be 'buddy'.


Shooting on the main course will start at 9.00am sharp and squads of 10 will be fed in from lane one. Shooting pairs will preferably be from different Regions and definitely from different clubs.


Latest time to book in will be 12oclock mid-day and squads will be fed on with relationship to when you signed in.


Anticipated start for practice is 8.00am and any drawn positions at the end of the event will be decided by shoot-off.


Location is at Curridge, just off J13 on the M4 and I am sure someone will follow up with a G.R. or Post Code for the site, if not pm me and I will send all the relevant links to you.


Now for the Show-Down on Sunday 6th September, there is no entry fee but you will need to have qualified to take part in the shoot. The draw for the first round takes place on Saturday around mid-day when there are plenty of people to witness and verify the draw.


There will be a briefing on Sunday morning at twenty minutes to nine (08.40hrs) and the format will be explained then. Shooting will start at 09.00hrs sharp and I suggest you are on site at 08.00 latest to enable you have a practice and attend the briefing.


If this is the first time you have taken part in the Show-Down, firstly well done in qualifying and secondly drop me a pm with your telephone number and I will call you and attempt to answer all your question.


I will be on hand to explain what is happening and where you need to be.


Best wishes, and I look forward to seeing you over the weekend.
