A long story cut (very) short, I am fed up with BASC. I came to the conclusion they are a self righteous organisation that do not seem to care for their members as much as they care for themselves. I have a long list of complaints starting from their policies on some issues close to my heart, to their apparent inability (unwillingness, maybe?) to put a decent representation for country sports when lobbying the goverment. It seems to me they got too comfortable being the 'largest shooting organisation'. So, after a very long time, it is time for a change. Who do I join then? NGO? SACS? BDS? Insurance is a rather important factor here, but as important is the willingness of said organisation to act as my voice when they meet with government. Not to sit in expensive hotels with them and drink malt whiskey.
