      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.

      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.

More than 100 gamekeepers and deer stalkers from across Scotland are expected to attend the 16th annual BASC Scotland Gamekeepers’ Day at Scone Palace in Perthshire on 7th March.

Other topics include the introduction of vicarious liability, an update on snaring legislation and the implementation of the Deer Code.


Dr Colin Shedden, BASC Scotland director, said: “This event is important for gamekeepers and stalkers in Scotland. It will feature legislative updates and allow people to share best practice. It will also highlight important initiatives which they contribute to such as co-ordinated mink control schemes.


“Gamekeepers play an important part in safeguarding Scotland’s natural heritage and wild places and this event gives us an opportunity to thank them for their hard work throughout the year.


“We are also delighted that students from the three gamekeeping colleges in Scotland will attend, ensuring that the next generation of ‘keepers get a wide perspective on their future employment.”


A morning conference session will be followed by lunch, a sporting clay shoot and a fundraising raffle with a top prize of a day's off-road driving donated by Land Rover Experience Scotland.
