BASC Shotgun Safe Shot

Although not a competence test, the safe shot assessment was designed with the knowledgeable live quarry shooter in mind, to give an overview to the correct use and management of a shotgun. Since the scheme launch at the CLA Game Fair in 1998, many people have taken the award and proudly wear their bronze safe shot pin on their shooting attire.

To be awarded the safe shot badge you must complete the following;

  • A short multiple-choice question paper on safety
  • An empty gun handling section, including crossing an obstacle
  • Prove that you can load and fire the gun safely at a clay target from a shooting cage
