      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.

      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.

Well Holly it looks like you owe me yet another brew as i beat you soundly with a 37 :f2:

Fantastic course with a dastardly wind made for an entertaining day. A big thank you to the course setters from all the Tawd crew. I even managed to get a 2nd place trophy in "B" grade today my first National trophy so it was even more special for me. Thanks to Ozzy and Tim my shooting partners for putting up with my excuses

I had a bit of a two and eight with mr calpin at the regionals , trying to explain to him that it really did not matter how many times a course has been shot before a big comp . cos on a good course , it would be just as hard each time you shot it . we have what i call some classic shots . to get em requires skill and a bit of luck with the wind , which is not easy at our club . andy would have none of it saying that a GP course had to be virgin positions and range . now at our club in a small strip wood , that is impossible . but in the end it is rare for it to be cleared . cause you could be one of those who do simon . and pigs will fly , honk honk :eek: ??? HOLLY :):qq::thumb:

Have to agree with you on that Hols. We will have some shots i have done hundreads of times, ok they will be slightly shorter come the gp but its the same lane bar a few yards. I was testing the Priest on them yesterday having just re-done settings.my practise routine is to hit a target 3 times in a row beofre moving onto the next one.

some of the -swearword-s i had to give up on yesterday in the wind.

 

A good course will always test even if you think you know it and hopefully Tondu will be a good course for all.

Holly can u ask mr clarke if i can borrow that 90ft lader of his :)

 

As long as i have been at the club,ive only seen 2 clears and that was Craig both times/and the targets was not in same place both times.

 

There will be 20 gp targets out and 20 club targets out,so there is a chance for someone to have a go at clearing(thats if its not windy)

 

SORRY HOLLY WILL NOT BE YOU :f2:

 

Paul.

I take it club targets must be the old 50mm ones, as such more suited for Holly?
