An­other great day out

Air Gunner - - IN THE NEWS -

On the 30th of June, Em­mett and Stone Coun­try Store, based near Mar­low in Buck­ing­hamshire, had an­other of its ul­tra­pop­u­lar open days. The event was su­perbly sup­ported by Air Arms who had guns on the range for five hours to al­low the pub­lic try them out. From the lovely Al­pha Proj pis­tol, to the amaz­ing FTP 900, shoot­ers from far and wide were treated to a unique dis­play from this fab­u­lous brand. The 12th lane in the range was ded­i­cated to a Speed Shot com­pe­ti­tion, test­ing shoot­ers’ speed and ac­cu­racy across a num­ber of range tar­gets. There were some sur­prises on the day, in­clud­ing a daugh­ter who shot bet­ter than her air- ri­fle-shoot­ing fa­ther, de­spite never hav­ing held an air ri­fle in her life! Claire West and her team from Air Arms as usual were on form, with end­less en­cour­age­ment and flow of in­for­ma­tion for peo­ple want­ing to know more about the mod­els avail­able.

The good news is that they plan an­other event on the 1st of Septem­ber, so put it in your diary be­cause this one looks like be­ing their big­gest and best yet. On hand will be staff from BSA, Air Arms, Weihrauch, Sterling, FX Air­guns, Daystate, Hawke Sport Op­tics and Hy­drotech, with stacks of sexy kit for you to han­dle and shoot. There will also be plenty of chances to shoot shot­guns and ri­fles too, so it looks like be­ing an­other great day. Their shop and range is easy to find and close to the M40 mo­tor­way, so get­ting there is a piece of cake. www.em­met­tand­ Tel 01628 474187
