  1. Afternoon all can anyone on here recommend on how to get some permission for some pigeon shooting or help out with some fully insured and licensed live in County Durham and don’t mind travel long as it’s miles away appreciate the help guys
  2. Hi all As part of the BASC shotgun coaching programme we require 8 novice shooters to assist with the assessment process. You will receive a completely free shotgun coaching lesson, as long as you are over 15, and haven't shot many times before. The event takes place on the 13th May at the A1 shooting ground, North London. If you are interested (or someone you know) in getting a free lesson, please contact Jane Hatton on 07775 874937 to book a time slot Many thanks, Peter
  3. As time passes we as a community/sport must engage with the younger generation in order to maintain our sport/culture. With pressures from Government mounting and new bans/disruptive legislation coming into force (steel) the cost of shooting is only rising, at what point do we blink? 40-45p a clay, £220+ 1000 (lead, fibre, entry level cartridges), £80+ for beginner 1hr coaching (+ cartridges and clays) The sport feels somewhat reserved for those who can afford to pay the fees or for the few who are lucky to carry natural talent and become sponsored. I would like to ask what people's thoughts are on this matter and how they believe as a community we can make shooting more accessible? I personally belive it to be willfully ignorant of us to say "if you can't afford it don't shoot". Thank you in advance.

  9. Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and have some questions to ask if you don't mind helping me. I have moved to the UK 2 years ago from Malta to continue my medical training and work here as a doctor. In Malta I used to practice shooting for birds and rabbits. Now that I'm settled here I would like to get into the shooting practice in the UK. Can you please tell me what do I need to do step by step please? I understand that I need to have a club membership and be insured (ex: BASC membership) to practice, and having a shotgun certificate if I decide to own my shotgun. Regarding the general licence, do I need to do some sort of application against a payment? Then all I need is to get a permission to access land and shoot or join a syndicate (which is most probably the hardest to achieve). Right? All help is appreciated guys. Thanks a lot Gary

  18. Are you from Scotland and enjoy spending time in the countryside? Then you could help me with my dissertation by filling out this survey! The survey is completely anonymous and should only take a few minutes of your time. The aim of the study is to find out Scottish people’s attitudes towards wolves and any groups of people that may conflict with wolves if they were released into the Scottish countryside. The study is purely hypothetical and is not related to any real wolf reintroduction project but aims to investigate this relatively new area of discussion. I am myself not for or against the reintroduction of wolves to Scotland, this is just an area of interest with relatively little recent research. Thank you for any replies. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=-rKZc65vv0mnaFhQugcXP4hCSKZq3-pDkKNgciG031JUNkw3R1JXRUZZSEM2QzMzNEJOVVZOWkRZVi4u

  23. Hello I have been shooting clays and wingshooting for over 20 years, mainly in the US. Just moved back to UK and got my SC last week so I got myself a nice shotgun and I am ready to go. Looking to get into pigeon shooting and , since I don't have any contacts or permissions yet, I am willing to pay for some shooting as it becomes available over the next few months and depending on the local crops etc. I live around Fordingbridge- Ringwood and I am willing to travel perhaps up to 1 1/2 hours for a good place. I can be contacted here, but better at jmmartiherrero@hotmail.com. Cell is 0034 648 026 028 I would also consider helping out with whatever, in exchange for observing and learning, if you want to take me as a pupil Thanks very much. JM
  24. Hi, Yes its the age old question of gaining permission to shoot on land. I currently shoot on a large estate and have known the estate manager/game keeper for some years without any incident. Being ex-military I am always polite and courteous of whom ever I meet whilst I am about shooting (in life as well), and this has stood me in good stead over the years (you never know who you meet whilst out). But due to partridge/pheasant shooting my shooting is curtailed between some months due to this well deserved sport as this earns the estate the money they need. So off I went looking for pastures new, I looked over the advice on the website regarding gaining permission to shoot on land. I dressed smart, printed out some business cards, knocked on quite a few doors and introduced myself politely. I explained where I currently shoot and who for and gave the farmers the opportunity to ask me questions and if need be check my story so to speak. As a communications/mechanical engineer I offered my services such as beating etc any time when I am not at work to them (i work 4 on 4 off) and at Christmas I popped round some of the nearer farms and dropped off some of my home made sloe gin, just to keep me in mind if anything comes about. But as of yet not much luck. I had many replies such as "We already have some people who shoot for us" to "NO thank you". I totally understand the point that some farmers just do not want some stranger wandering around their farm with a gun and yes trust needs to be earned. Just wanted to gain some of the forums experience from this matter, what if anything am I doing wrong? Is there anything else I could be doing to improve my odds etc. Just for interest I live not too far from Long Melford, Suffolk. Thanks for your time and comments. Regards Flash.
