The BASC Northern Ireland team is fully committed to delivering a premium service to BASC members, which is why we have a “members first” approach. We are widely recognised not only for our success in resolving members’ firearms licensing issues but also our wider work on NI firearms and wildlife legislation.
We continue to lead the way in the Northern Ireland Assembly, as evidenced by our work with the All Party Group on Country Sports, which was established by BASC and our elected representatives in January 2013. Our work throughout NI is supported by BASC head office colleagues, which is why BASC is the organisation that is best placed to promote and protect all aspects of shooting sports in Northern Ireland.

Firearm security reminder
We remind members of their responsibilities in relation to the security of firearms and ammunition which should at all times, be stored and transported in line with the General Conditions listed on the front page of all NI FACs. Keys to gun cabinets should be kept in a secure location or, carried on your person so as to prevent unauthorised access. If your home is going to be unoccupied for more than a week, firearms should be left with your local firearms dealer for safe storage. All doors and windows should be secured and where fitted, intruder alarms should be used. If you use social media, do not highlight the fact that you are a firearm certificate holder or that that your home is unoccupied.
