‘I need to let you all know just how good, well run and organised these BASC courses are’. ‘I can’t stress enough that this was the best money I’ve spent on anything shooting related’ NL 2016
“I wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for the great day that you put on at Millride a few weeks ago. The content of the course was brilliant, and you delivered the course fantastically. My shooting has come on a great deal since the gun fit that you kindly offered and I am currently trying to find some land that needs some help on the pigeon front – so all round I am chuffed!”
“The course content is perfect for anyone new to the sport or considering taking it up”
“A great day out for me, the atmosphere and level of instruction from Russ and Roy was top notch ”
“To add weight to what Handlebar said I attended the introduction to Pigeon shooting course run at Chippenham Park last weekend by BASC and was mightly impressed and learned a lot.”
“Our course was abley run by our very own Terry and David from BASC who passed on some great hints and tip with enthusiasm, it was well worth the money and I fully recommend it if you are new to pigeon control. Full marks to BASC on this one.”
“Great day, really please I came and have learned a lot. Friendly coaches/tutors who clearly know their subject. Thanks for the insight and for your enthusiasm. Great value for money too. Thank you”
