Youngsters in Northamptonshire will be able to learn about airguns at a special event being held in October.
BASC has teamed up with Northamptonshire Police and the Airgun Training and Education Organisation (ATEO) to organise an Airgun Awareness and Training Day for youngsters and their parents on 17 October at Northampton Target Sports Club.
The day is designed for all those currently using airguns or considering acquiring one. The training day will cover safety issues before moving on to using an airgun under supervision in the indoor range.
The classroom sessions will focus on maintenance and servicing, scope set up and zeroing, shooting positions and technique, pellet choice and trajectory. Northamptonshire Police will talk to the parents and youngsters about the legal aspects of using or owning an airgun.
