      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, Fund Raiser in North yields £20k+

BASC North fundraiser boosts Young Shots, conservation and community projects



More than £20,000 was raised at a fundraising event organised by BASC North.


People travelled from as far afield as the British Virgin Islands to attend the event at the Inn at Whitewell in Lancashire.


Almost 200 people sat down to a meal of local produce followed by a sporting auction where shooting, fishing and more was sold to raise funds.


The funds will be split between BASC’s Young Shots scheme, a number of Young Shots-led conservation projects and a number of local cancer support charities.


Duncan Thomas, BASC North director, said: “The extremely generous shooting community supported the event both in donating auction lots and bidding enthusiastically on the night. It is important for the shooting community to evidence its positive contribution to the wider community.


“I am immensely proud of what we have built up here. My heartfelt thanks go out to all the shoots, gamekeepers and shooting-related businesses that supported the evening plus of course my team here who have worked tirelessly to deliver the event. The team at the Inn at Whitewell were, as usual, outstanding.


“We raised just over £20,000 on the night which has smashed last year’s great effort. Our Young Shots projects will now go to another level - we wish to appeal to the shooting community for ideas, especially linking conservation projects with Young Shots. This year we advertised and started some of the auction via Facebook which proved extremely effective in reaching a wider audience.


“If you want your particular Young Shot to get involved or need some assistance with a shoot-related conservation project, please contact BASC North.”


The event sold out in 36 hours and was massively oversubscribed.
