Shooters will be flocking to The British Shooting Show at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire on 10, 11 and 12 February 2017. It's the biggest shooting and gun show in Europe and not to be missed. Here's why.
1.You’re on the lookout for a new or used shotgun
Whatever your discipline, whether you’re a gameshooter, a wildfowler or a clayshooter, this is the place to come. You’ll find thousands of new and used shotguns to choose from at prices for every budget. Expect to discover some excellent “show only” offers. Discuss your queries and needs directly with the manufacturers — from Boxall & Edmiston to Westley Richards — and the main distributors to help you make a decision on your next purchase.
2. You want a new rifle or a good second-hand one
You’ll find thousands of new and used rifles for sale — simply look for the “Rifle Focus” signs on the stands at the show. These range from out-of-the-box and custom-built rifles, in an extensive range of calibres and for every kind of sport, whether it be for target shooting, pest control, stalking or big game hunting abroad. There will be specialists on hand to talk to so that you can find the right rifle and calibres combination for the job. You’ll also be able to look through a comprehensive selection of scopes, sights, optics and lights from all the leading brands.
3. You’re in the market for a new airgun
One of the most active areas of the show is “Airgun City”, an Aladdin’s Cave for the airgun enthusiast featuring rifles and accessories from all the major manufacturers and retailers. You can try guns on the manufacturer’s private ranges and there is expert help and guidance available for youngsters and novices.
4. You want a good day out
5. You collect antique guns
Maybe you want to add to your collection of antique guns or whether you want to brush up on your knowledge of firearms history, there will be plenty to see — and buy. For example, the Lovat Society will have a collection of historic sniper rifles on show and you can talk to their experts. There will also be a huge display of classic military rifles (and vehicles).
6. You’re a gamekeeper
The National Gamekeepers’ Organisation is hosting the Gamekeeping Hall and there will be a hospitality and meeting area there. Suppliers and manufacturers of specialist gamekeeping products will also have stands to visit.
7. You want to say hello to us
Shooting Times, Sporting Gun, Shooting Gazette and The Field will, of course, have a stand at the show where we will be offering great savings on subscriptions as well as the chance to talk to the team. Our stand is located in Gunmakers Hall, Hall 1 Zone 15.
We look forward to seeing you there!
