      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.

Cheers Bob,

 

We are still in the early days of establishing a club/team & hope to encourage others in our area to do the same...so we will at some stage provide a web page of some kind to advertise these aims...

 

Our membership is growing every meet & the emphisis is on fun using older spring .177 airguns..we have five targets "on the go" most of the night then finish off with a shoot off to add some spice..we are constantly reminded of idiots/thugs giving airgun shooting a bad press...it's just a shame that the same press never seem to want to report the 99.9% of us user's that get pleasure from out given sport.. :dunno: ..anyway :fume: over..."watch this space" as they say..!ATB,Mad mike.

Had to give it a miss tonight, a combination of various reasons. Hope to be there next week, especially if the price has gone down on the air rifles.

For this week, a nice young man is going to come and give a chat on the history of the BSA Airsporter

 

This should take about 1/2 hour and if it goes well then we have got a few more topics lined up that should be interesting to most members (hopefully)

 

If any member has a Stutzen or Centenary model, then please bring it along so that the best of the range is all there to look at

 

See you tomorrow

Can't make it tonight I'm afraid. I'm at a club dinner, and it's being held at one of those all you can eat buffet restaurants. I have a reputation to uphold.

Excellent attendance again..nice to see new face's every week.Hope you liked the new format... :thumb: many thanks to John (Baron) for his very comprehensive talk on the evolution of the BSA Airsporter..bet you never knew there were so many versions.... :eek: nice to see so many in one hit & in such good condition.

 

The "shoot off" scores are steadily increasing week by week..those (proffesional) boys from the Hinkley league won't know what hit them... :snip: cheers to Shinny (John) too for putting up the raffle prize again..see you soon,Mad mike.

The guys who have challenged us are from a field target club where they shoot out to 75 yards... :eek: ..I think they can get a team together within the next couple of weeks..so we need to hone our skills..if Shinny covers us from the high ground & "Santa" & young Reaper can get within strikeing distance..we have as good a chance as them.. :thumb: anyone good at garroting... :dunno:
