    Having spent the past few days being once again reminded of how utterly, shockingly poor some of said company's products can be, I thought it timely to invite the good people of the AGF to come up with some alternative takes on the classic BSA acronym (it seems it no longer stands for Birmingham Small Arms since what was left of that company was liquidated in 1986 and resurrected by Gamo in the form of BSA Guns Ltd).

    To begin there are the classics as well as a few more I've come up with of late:

    Barcelona Small Arms
    Best Scrap Available
    Better Seek Alternative
    Better Send Away
    Barrels Scrap Already

    I'd welcome some more contributions.. likewise I know not everyone feels as strongly about said company as I do (and there's still the odd brave soul, soldiering on in defiance and defending the company's honour to the death :p) so by all means, if you love your BSA please chuck some positive ones in there too.. if you can think of any.

    Please keep things civil and remember it's just a bit of fun, doesn't mean anything and doesn't really matter - evidently much like BSA's QC department.

    I've had a mostly positive experience of BSA products, R10 regulators notwithstanding. Mine have all been accurate and easily adjusted if power was on the low side. The finish isn't up to AA standards but the function and sturdiness have been much better than AA.
    I currently have an Ultra SE synthetic in .22 which puts 35 shots exactly where I want them and with only 8fps between lowest and highest. Apart from low shot count, which can be sorted with a reg, I can't fault it so for me it's a Bloody Silly Accusation. :)

    Though as I enjoy shooting my diminutive Ultra SE, I could say 'Beautiful Short Arse.' :D
