LETTER OF THE MONTH
WINS THE JACK PYKE HUNTERS BOOTS
I’m writing this letter after returning from the British Shooting Show at the NEC, and basically, all I can say is, ‘Wow, look how far we’ve come!’ I can also add, ‘I can’t believe how professionally presented our sport is, now’ and this makes me feel so much better about what I do as an airgunner.
To see those huge, impressive displays that included so many equally impressive airguns and accessories from Air Arms, Daystate, BSA, Umarex, Sig Sauer, Webley, A.S.I., Weihrauch, Sterling, Hawke, Scott Country, Best Fittings, Jack Pyke and many, many more, actually brought a smile to my face. I spent ages on the Air Arms ranges, where I was expertly looked after in the company of genuine enthusiasts. I even got to speak to Claire West, the Air Arms MD, and a more ‘real’ person I couldn’t wish to meet. I also spoke to Simon Moore, the boss at BSA, and he was just as helpful and enthusiastic, as was everyone I spoke to at the show.
I came away, footsore and weary from walking miles to get round everything, but so uplifted by the experience. I’ll be buying one of the new regulated Ultimate Sporters from Air Arms and I can’t wait to get it on the range. Thanks to everyone who made this long-term airgunner very happy!
