Police demand for BASC guidance soars

Thousands of extra copies of a police officer?s guide to lawful shooting have been printed to meet demand from police forces around the country. The guide, produced by the UK?s largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), provides officers with information on situations where people will be involved in activities such as game shooting, deer stalking, wildfowling, pest control and target shooting.

BASC aims to improve police understanding of shooting

Following a number of incidents, police forces are to be given information to help them identify people involved in lawful shooting. The UK?s largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), has published a new guide, The Police Officer?s Guide to Shooters, which is designed to help prevent misunderstandings and reduce interventions by the police.
