Team Air Arms

Air Gunner - - In The News -

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.
