Rifle ‘FMJ’ zone
The rifle ‘FMJ’ Zone will be one of many specialist areas within the show and this focus area will be a melting pot for all rifle disciplines. The stand prices are being kept comparatively low, to try and attract small, more interesting specialist retailers to rub shoulders with the bigger players in the industry. Having the right balance of exhibitors is the key ingredient to bringing you an area with more variety and specialist products to see in one place. Whether you’re into, stalking, hunting, target, tactical or vermin control, this concentrated area will deliver all the latest rifle technology & specialist accessories. Key associations, specialist publications, clubs & societies etc. are all on board.
FAC holders with North Yorkshire Firearms Department are in for a treat, because if they see something they want at the show and don’t have a free slot the department will be at the show issuing variations on the day! Semi automatic .22 rimfire copies and fullbore ‘Straight Pull’ versions of modern military rifles are extremely popular with UK shooters and there will be many examples of these firearms on display. Long range target and ‘Practical’ style bolt action rifles will also be on display from various retailers and custom gun builders. UK legal revolvers and .22 semi auto long barrelled pistols have really taken off in recent years.
Traditional stalking and vermin control bolt action rifles are still at the heart of fullbore shooting and they too will be well represented, so come to the FMJ Zone to see what’s new. Reloading is very popular, as it can help to keep costs down when compared to factory ammo, but home loaders can also craft custom, highly accurate ammunition to suit their rifle, to tighten up their groups down range. Bullets, cases and powder etc. will be on sale at the show, so bring your ticket and stock up on components! With ‘Early Bird’ adult tickets at only £9 including free priority parking, Show organisers promise visitors will certainly get their money’s worth!
Air Gun Central
This specialist area is located in the central exhibition hall & is located at the ‘hub’ of the show. Airguns are at the heart of all shooting sports and it’s only right to make this area an integral part of the show. Shooting an airgun is usually how people get in to shooting sports and many top competitors owe their success to that first experience with an air pistol or rifle. Many continue to shoot airguns throughout their shooting lives and still use them even when they have cartridge firing firearms and shotguns in the gun cabinet. We are proud to have the top names in airguns already confirmed within ‘Airgun Central’, such as Air Arms, Daystate/ Brocock/MTC Optics, BSA/Gamo & Hawke/Tracer
HFT Masters will be hosting a competition on the Sunday and will be demonstrating how it’s done on the Saturday, and show visitors will be able to try their hand at this exciting air rifle discipline. The Airgun Training and Education Organisation (ATEO) will be running a ‘have a go’ range and will be on hand to offer advice on technique, rifles, scopes and other equipment. With ‘Early bird’ adult tickets at only £9 including free priority parking, Show organisers promise visitors will certainly get their moneys worth!
