Selling shot game

BASC recognises that some members sell part of their bag; for most people sales are occasional so cover is provided under the BASC members’ liability policies and they have nothing further to do.

But members who regularly sell part of their bag need to tell us for cover to apply. We will continue to insure you for no extra charge if your sales routinely reaches £300 in any period of a month then BASC needs to be told, Simply complete and sign the form below and either post it to BASC or email it to

More significant sales: For members shooting recreationally whose income from the sale of their bag runs at a more-commercial level, exceeding £3,600 per year, an insurance cover extension is available for a small additional premium.  If you feel you could be in this category then please email us at  or complete the application form and send it together with your remittance for £25 which will provide you with cover until the end of your current membership and will be included with future renewals.
