BASC launches new GSC1 course for novice shots
BASC has added the Game Shooter Certificate 1 (GSC1) to its range of courses on offer. The course is available both to members of the organisation and to non-members.
Intended for novice shots and those new to game shooting, the GSC1 adds to the ever-increasing portfolio of educational and practical courses offered by BASC.
The GSC1 promotes a wider understanding of game shooting and sets out to arm participants with the knowledge to improve their success and ability as a game shot.
Run over one-and-a-half-days, safety in the field and the laws surrounding shooting are fundamental elements of the course.
Other aspects covered for less experienced game shots are general etiquette and behaviour on a shoot day. An introduction into gundogs features too, and the course concludes with a safe shot assessment and a range judging exercise.
The GSC1 has been widely praised during its roll-out. It aims not only to maintain safety standards in the field, but also to improve the accessibility of game shooting for those new to the sport.
