Default Gun insurance at competitions

Hi. This is Deans' wife. Trying to make sure that all is well for Portugal with the insurance for Deans' airgun but was told today that it is not insured for competitions, only when it is in the home. We are with Direct Line and I talked to 2 different people who told the same story. Wondering which insurance companies have better policies as we certainly need one!
Thanks for any info.

Hi Dean's Wife ,

I don't know much about airgun insurance but I joined BASC for insurance but I was also told it covers my rifles away from home, might be worth a Google & read.

Hope this might help & good luck for Portugal.

My nat west policy covers my guns in and out of the home, and to and from, and at, shoots.

Insurers ask some funny questions, like " do you wear your watch out of the house"?

The NSRA. Might sound expensive - until you lose your very expensive rifle. Also has personal liability cover.

Yes, NSRA is the way to go. You may even wish at some time to enter a NSRA competition and by and large these are open to members only.

Thanks for the all the suggestions. Gone down the NSRA route.
I've got some custom made casting rods (fishing to those that don't know) and the insurers say that they are covered if used for "pleasure" but not when used in a competition (even amateur)! Same applies to the policy with respect to shooting gear.
Thanks again.
Dean
