      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.

BASC Press Release, Gundogs at Crufts

Recommended Posts

Could your gundog sniff out prizes at Crufts?


21st December 2011………….……………………………………………….immediate release


Fancy taking your dog from the shooting field to the show arena? The deadline is approaching for working gundog owners who want to register to enter next year’s Crufts show.


The UK's largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), will run a number of gamekeeper and other gundog handler classes at the event's gundog day on 9th March 2012 at the NEC in Birmingham.


BASC’s classes act as a showcase for working gundogs at the world’s largest dog show. All of the dogs will have recently finished a busy shooting season and Crufts gives their handlers an opportunity to show the animals in their prime.


The closing date for entries is Monday 9th January 2012. BASC will host classes for individuals and teams.


Overall winners from the gamekeepers’ classes throughout the day will go head-to-head in a final show in the main arena for the Northesk Memorial Trophy.


Glynn Evans, BASC's head of game and gamekeeping, said: "BASC’s rings provide an opportunity for gamekeepers and other gundog owners to meet and compete with their dogs. They act as a showcase for working gundogs and help promote the work that they do to a wider public audience.”


All of the BASC classes at Crufts are supported and sponsored by Chudleys dog food.


Schedules and entry forms are available from BASC’s gamekeeping team on 01244 573019. They can also be downloaded from the BASC website.


For more information please call the BASC press office on 01244 573031
