Airgun shooting is one of the most popular shooting sports in the UK. Both professional and amateur pest controllers commonly use airguns, mainly due to their quiet operation and the low cost of ammunition. Airguns are also used for both formal and recreational target shooting. The targets range from simple ‘bullseye’ paper targets in indoor ranges, to more complex ‘field targets’ that are set out in woodland and represent typical airgun quarry. The UK boasts several world and European champions in almost all airgun target disciplines. Airgun shooting is also the perfect introduction for young people into the sport of shooting, where all of the basic principles- including safety, can be taught.

Politicians urged by BASC to consider and support a series of proposed common-sense amendments to the Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Bill
BASC’s Geri Buckley shot her way to the top of the British Sport Pistol rankings, securing a qualification score to represent Great Britain this year.
Delays of up to nine months in processing firearms licence applications and renewals by Police Scotland have been described as unacceptable by the UK’s largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC). Applications for the grant and renewal of firearm and shotgun licences should be processed within a few weeks but a backlog is building up in Scotland.
Professional pest controllers were put through their paces with airguns at a training day held by BASC Scotland. Airgun shooting is an integral part of pest control and professionals need to be able to demonstrate high standards of skill and safety.
