Airgun World - - Points Of You - PAUL LOWESTRY

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!
