Events, prod­ucts and all the lat­est from the world of air­gun­ning

This year’s Game Fair, which is be­ing held from Fri­day the 28th to Sun­day the 30th of July at Hat­field House in Hert­ford­shire, is once again pulling out the ‘big guns’ as it puts air­guns at the fore­front of the show.

In­deed, the air­gun ranges and ex­hibitors will be the first thing that vis­i­tors us­ing the main car park en­trance – En­trance A – will see when they ar­rive. They will be greeted by many of the top names in the sport, de­liv­er­ing an ex­ten­sive pro­gramme of events in­clud­ing tu­ition, have-a-go shoot­ing lanes, a hard-fought com­pe­ti­tion and a wealth of new equip­ment. Vis­i­tors will be able to try-be­fore-they-buy, pose ques­tions to air­gun ex­perts, test a range of dif­fer­ent air ri­fles and get their hands on the very lat­est kit – as well as meeting the edi­tors of Air Gun­ner and Air­gun World, of course.

Part­ners

This year, The Game Fair has part­nered with Air Arms to de­liver its Air Arms Ex­pe­ri­ence, which will be a fo­cal point of the event. It al­lows vis­i­tors to try their hand at five of the UK’s top tar­get-shoot­ing dis­ci­plines, sup­ported by Bri­tish Shoot­ing, UK Benchrest, UKAHFT (Hunter Field Tar­get) and the BFTA (Bri­tish Field Tar­get As­so­ci­a­tion). Ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion on all these dis­ci­plines will also be avail­able, with ex­perts on hand to an­swer any queries.

As if that were not enough, the East Sus­sexbased man­u­fac­turer will also be of­fer­ing vis­i­tors the chance to en­ter the highly ex­cit­ing Speed Shoot com­pe­ti­tion. Those tak­ing part could win cash prizes and, as a bonus, all score cards will be en­tered into a free prize draw to win a brand-new S410 Su­per­lite plus kit, worth more than £ 800.

The main air­gun ranges are be­ing run once again by the Air­gun Train­ing and Ed­u­ca­tion Or­gan­i­sa­tion (ATEO). Qual­i­fied coaches and air­gun ex­perts will be avail­able through­out the week­end, al­low­ing you to try out the lat­est prod­ucts from top names in­clud­ing Air Arms, BSA, Game, Daystate, Bro­cock, Weihrauch, Cros­man and FX, among oth­ers be­fore head­ing over to key re­tail­ers to buy your favourite. The ranges will also al­low shoot­ers to try out dif­fer­ent types of air­gun, from tra­di­tional spring-pow­ered break-bar­rels to the lat­est Pre-Charged Pneu­matic (PCP) mod­els.

Many at­trac­tions

Other at­trac­tions that will in­ter­est air­gun­ners in­clude The Kitchen Theatre. This year, the Cook­ery Theatre has been over­hauled to in­clude sto­ries from the food pro­duc­ers them­selves. So, if chef José Souto is giv­ing a talk about rab­bits and pi­geons, ex­pect the air­gun­ner who har­vested the game to be on stage too, ex­plain­ing the story of the hunt. There’ll also be a Chef’s Table and bar so that the au­di­ence can fully re­lax when watch­ing the cook­ery demon­stra­tions. Con­tin­u­ing on the foodie theme, The Gregg Wal­lace Shot to Pot Restau­rant is re­turn­ing again this year. The rustic menu fea­tures a num­ber of game dishes, plus Gregg will be min­gling with din­ers on the Satur­day and Sun­day of the show.
