Shotgun Safe Shot
BASC Shotgun Safe Shot provides those that take it with a chance to demonstrate a confident and safe use of shotguns in a field based situation.
For example – one of the principal causes of accidental shootings is the failure to get over gates and fences safely. But how should you do it safely, especially if you are on your own? This is one of the key practical elements in the Safe Shot award.
The Safe Shot assessment is not a training course – it was designed with the knowledgeable live quarry shooter in mind to give an overview of the correct use and management of a shotgun; however, a certificate is issued. Since the scheme’s launch at the CLA Game Fair in 1998 many thousands of people have successfully taken the award and proudly wear their gold Safe Shot pin on their shooting attire.
There are two ways to be awarded BASC Safe Shot:
- Visit one of the many game fairs around the country where BASC has a presence on the shooting line (you can find details of these events on the events page of this site). Safe Shot takes about 20 minutes and costs only £20 – please confirm availability before attending to avoid disappointment.
- Attend and pass an assessment arranged in your local area. BASC can provide you with a list of qualified BASC Safe Shot Assessors (see link below) with whom you can arrange an assessment.
