Shooting: The Facts for Journalists

BASC has created an interactive online guide to shooting to help journalists better understand the numerous different disciplines and benefits that result from shooting.

A link to the guide – Shooting – the facts for journalists – is regularly sent to journalists interested in covering shooting topics and gets sent to every newsroom in the UK at the start of August.

The comprehensive guide features sections on sporting shooting, sporting firearms, information on licensing, young people, conservation and game as food.

It features a series of infographics, hyperlinks and links to BASC films.

It records the hundreds of thousands of people who find their recreation and sport in the countryside and on the shooting ranges and clay grounds across the country. It shows, for the first time, the social benefits of an active recreation enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds.
