BASC Handbook of Shooting Review

The Handbook of Shooting

Thank you to Quiller Publishing for inviting British Country Sports to review the       BASC Handbook of Shooting – An introduction to the sporting shotgun 7th Edition. 


Let me start this review by saying I very much enjoyed this book for several reasons.

Firstly its content is right on the money for anyone getting into or involved in the sport of shooting. Secondly it is written in non-technical terms that the layperson can understand. And thirdly, its compact size and robust binding – it fits neatly into the vehicle glove box or shooting bag. Well done to BASC (The British Association for Shooting and Conservation) and all those who were part of its production. Continue reading

British Shooting Show Feb 2018

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The 3-day 2018 British Shooting Show in its new location at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, has been well supported by sporting shooters and hunters alike.

It was a bold move by the BSS organisers to move the show to the much larger NEC complex this year but one that seems to have paid off.

Attendance has been steady over the 3 days with most show goers agreeing it was reasonable value for the entrance fee asked.
