      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.

BASC Press Release, New Chief Executive Appointed

Recommended Posts

BASC appoints new chief executive


A NEW chief executive has been appointed to lead the UK's largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC). Ian Bell will join the BASC team in February 2018.

 

Ian, a brigadier in the British Army, will take up his position at BASC at the end of his current deployment as Commander British Forces Germany. He joined the army in 1983 and later commanded 3rd Regiment Royal Horse Artillery.

 

Ian has a life-long passion for fieldsports and first joined BASC as a Young Shot. He is currently President of the British Forces Germany Game Shooting Association and a long standing member of the Defence Deer Management Organisation.

 

Ian said: “It is a huge honour and privilege to be appointed chief executive of an organisation which has worked over many, many years to protect and promote shooting. I am passionate about shooting and fieldsports and determined to ensure the association remains at the forefront of the UK’s shooting community.

 

“BASC’s membership is at record levels because it is fiercely committed to representing the interests of its members.

 

For the future well-being of shooting sports, it is essential that BASC continues to connect with its members and continues to be a vibrant organisation that can deal with all the challenges ahead.”

 

BASC chairman Peter Glenser said: “We are delighted to have chosen Ian to fill the biggest job in shooting.

 

Throughout a rigorous recruitment process, it was obvious he has a passion for shooting and a clear vision for where he wants to take BASC.

 

“Shooting is enjoying a golden period of popularity, but there are many challenges in the months and years ahead, not least of which is the uncertainty surrounding Brexit. BASC’s council is confident that, in Ian, it has found an outstanding individual with a huge amount of leadership and strategic experience and the drive to ensure BASC remains the voice of shooting.
