Team Air Arms
A very touching story emerged as the Air Arms shooting team chose to get together to show their support for a remarkable young man. Archie started shooting when he was 9 years old and for his 10th birthday was given an Air Arms S200. Soon after, he entered an FT competition when he shot alongside the adults, scoring a very impressive 34 ex 50. His father was so pleased that he rang the Air Arms factory and they sent along some freebies to congratulate Archie, and the MD Claire wrote a kind letter wishing him well. She also invited him to the Midland Game Fair where he had some one-to- one training with three-times world champion, Nick Jenkinson. Back at school, the teacher asked the class to have a ‘show and tell’ of their summer exploits and Archie became an instant star. He is now telling the whole school just what a great sport we have. Well done, Archie, his dad, Air Arms, and Archie’s teacher, for letting the world know that shooting is a sport for everybody. Perhaps we’ve seen the next world champion in the making.
