Airgun World - - Contents -

What do you want from an air­gun shop? Most of us would like some­where with plenty of choice, friendly, knowl­edge­able staff, loads of ac­ces­sories and the abil­ity to try be­fore you buy. We’ve found some­where with all of these things and more, in Tackle Up at Fleet, just out­side Farn­bor­ough, just 10 min­utes or so from Junc­tion 4a of the M3.

Tackle Up de­scribes it­self on its web­site as an ‘out­door spe­cial­ist’, and you’ll see why as soon as you walk through the doors. Not only will you find airguns from all the big names, in­clud­ing Air Arms, Daystate, Weihrauch, BSA, Armex, Bro­cock, FX and Gamo, but they’re also backed by a range of ac­ces­sories from the likes of Hawke Sport Op­tics, MTC, Sports­match, Ger­ber, Leather­man and Yukon – plus cloth­ing, pel­lets, footwear, tar­gets, and much more.


Among the ser­vices of­fered at Tackle Up, pos­si­bly the most vi­tal is the chance to get your po­ten­tial pur­chase into your shoul­der and shoot some tar­gets on the shop’s on­site range. This will also al­low you to fa­mil­iarise your­self with the pro­cesses of load­ing the gun’s mag­a­zine, charg­ing it with air, cock­ing and load­ing, plus the price­less con­sid­er­a­tion of how well a ri­fle fits, of course. These pre­pur­chase fea­tures are im­por­tant, and the abil­ity to see if they suit your way of shoot­ing is in­valu­able, but it’s all part of the ser­vice at Tackle Up.


Speak­ing of ser­vices, also avail­able on site is an af­ford­able, while-you-wait air tank recharg­ing ser­vice, cour­tesy of Tackle Up’s ‘diver’s air stan­dard’ com­pres­sor, plus a chrono­graph, not to men­tion the ad­vice of spe­cially trained staff. Ask for Bar­ney or Si­mon, and if they can’t an­swer your query, they’ll soon con­tact some­one who can.


One of the fea­tures of any top shop, is cus­tomer ser­vice and the abil­ity to make you feel wel­come. This comes as stan­dard at Tackle Up, and if the shop’s not heav­ing with cus­tomers, an ex­cel­lent cuppa comes right along with it. These guys en­joy what they do and their en­thu­si­asm is passed on to those who mat­ter most – their cus­tomers.

If you’re within range of this ex­cel­lent out­door spe­cial­ist air­gun store, drop in and tell them Air­gun World sent you!

Daystate’s Ter­ence Lo­gan (right) gives Bar­ney some spe­cial­ist in­struc­tion.

Spring guns and gas-rams aplenty, too!

You’ll find mil­lions of pel­lets, plus mod­er­a­tors, mounts and a ton of other ac­ces­sories.
