This Sunday (14th October) marks the start of the two-day Tackle and Guns Show, Britain’s only shooting and fishing trade show, held at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
The Tackle and Gun Show is a prestigious event, attracting some of the biggest names and showcasing thousands of products within the shooting, fishing and country clothing industries sector.

There will be global brand and product launches, reinforcing the show’s position as the place to be.
Firms like LYNX, Taska, Percussion Clothing, keep In Touch, 5.11 Tactical and Old Ghost are all using the event to showcase themselves to the UK fishing or gun trade for the first time.
Added to this is a comprehensive list of seminars and business advice provided by the Gun Trade Association (GTA), the British Association for Shooting and Conservation and T&G’s parent company DHP Ltd plus a gundog demo each day, courtesy of Lintran.
In addition there will be the chance to view and handle the innovative new airsoft range, backed by Airsoft International, plus night-vision and two archery ranges, not to mention the chance to try out the latest airguns.
Visitors can collect many free samples – such as the innovative Buffs – goody bags from firms like Reuben Heaton, which is the UK distributor for Eagle Claw hooks, or show offers and discounts from many exhibitors.
This year the Tackle and Gun Show is organising its very own shooting event for the gun industry, which will be called The Shooting Trade Show.
A special area has been set aside to feature many gun trade exhibitors, countless visiting shooting retailers, a pavilion for the prestigious British Gun Trade Association (GTA), business and trade seminars, a prize giveaway and much more besides.
This is the 13th time the Tackle and Guns Show has been held. Last year the event attracted over 2,000 visitors.
