      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.

      The forum's EDIT function has been changed. After making your post, you will have 30 minutes to review and edit it. After that, only Admin will be able to make edits.   Should a post NEED to be edited afterwards, email to admin@airgunforum.net the change details, the URL of the thread it applies to and if appropriate, the reason for the change. Don't forget to identify yourself and do use your registered email address to make contact. All this is necessary, as admin must be able to identify who you are and that it is your post that you wish to edit.   Admin. will make the edit if it appears necessary. Note, if you want to change something that could easily be achieved by adding a further post to the thread, you will be expected to do it.   Forum staff generally view new posts added to threads since their last visit. If a "for sale" item has been sold or a wanted item has been obtained, just add a post to the thread and it will usually be noted and the thread title will be edited appropriately. This saves members' time wading through posts that are effectively "dead".   DaveL

BASC Press Release, Easter Weekend Celebrations

BASC and Countryman Fairs gearing up for Easter event



BASC and Countryman Fairs have joined forces to host a show to celebrate the countryside over the Easter weekend.


The Kelmarsh Country Show will be held on April 16th and 17th at Kelmarsh Hall in Northampton.


The BASC Gamekeepers’ Fair and Countryman Fairs' Kelmarsh Country Show have traditionally taken place in April just an hour’s journey apart, so now visitors can enjoy one event over Easter Sunday & Monday.


BASC will deliver ‘The BASC village’, which will feature membership services and representatives of the gamekeeping, deer management, firearms, and wildfowling departments. There will also be a trophy measuring service and game butchery and cookery demonstrations on the main BASC stand.


Staff from Northamptonshire Police’s firearms licensing department will also be on the BASC stand, while BASC-accredited coaches will be offering shotgun and airgun coaching.


Steve Bloomfield, BASC's operations director, said: “It makes perfect sense that our two organisations come together to create one exceptional country sports-focused event.


“BASC is the biggest shooting organisation in the UK and Countryman Fairs are experts in delivering high class outdoor events over many years. This is very exciting news for both exhibitors and visitors alike.”
