      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.

Hah!!! Either the drum ain't working or nobody at my club likes me enough to compete with me.

 

Looks like a no-go then unless there is a singles comp?

Well now, thanks very much for the invite but I would soon be a poorer pensioner than I am now due to traveling costs!

 

Traveling to my 'Cowboy' shoots once a month is about all I can manage comfortably, so it looks like I shall just have to heckle the non-players at my club into more activity.

 

I mean, air rifle and pistol shooting has to be one of the cheapest forms of shooting but you would need a 10 foot bullwhip to stir some of our guys!

 

You would not believe the number of trophies that stand idle in our display cabinet now-a-days, still, I guess that is modern youth for you!

Hi Craftsman

If you and other club members wish to visit Leics & District to see the benchrest set up and get other info on the sport, just ask

The Midlands Benchrest League shoot at either 20yds or 25 yds with teams of 3 shooters, 20shots/round and 10 rounds each season

The league shoots to true (World/European Fed.)benchrest rules using front and rear sandbag rests.

Mornin' Baron, do you have any info for venue, times and dates and a contact name, please?

 

dbsmedley@Hotmail.com. if you don't want to publish it on here.

Hi Craftsman

This is a link to L&D's website and gives opening times www.leicestershooting.co.uk/‎

Visit on a weekend and just ask the Duty Officer for info/membership details and a look at the ranges

Benchrest shooting takes place mainly on the indoor 25yd range, but UKBR22 targets are also shot on the outdoor air rifle 50yd range

 

Wednesday afternoons are also a good time to visit when BR shooting is taking place 1.30 - 4.30pm

What wonderful facilities I used to live locally although I was not into recreational shooting then, have to look them up next time I am in the area as I often visit friends in Leicester and Kibworth.
