Meet the Crackshot crew - probably the most experienced airgun shop team in the country

Here at Crackshot we pride ourselves on our customer service, part of which comes from having staff who have really studied the sport at every level. Our vastly experienced team is here to help with all of your airgun requirements, plus we’ll be able to help with any questions you might have. First, we find out what our customers want and need, then we help them get the most from their purchases.

The team

We’re able to do that because within our business we have Kevin Jackman, a two-time, world field target shooting champion, and an ultra-keen hunter with many years of experience in the field. Then there’s rising star, James Head, who is a current member of the Air Arms FT team and regular SWEFTA winner, plus John Langford and Eric Irish, who both have many years’ experience in all forms of shooting. Every member of our team not only knows his stuff, but they’re also never happier than when they’re passing on what they know to our customers.

Huge stock

We stock a huge selection of new and pre-owned PCP, spring and C02 rifles and pistols, along with a massive selection of accessories. As stated, we pride ourselves on the customer service we offer, so when you are buying an airgun from us, we want to supply what you need and not just what we have in stock. We can source most models from all the main suppliers and you are safe in the knowledge that we will take whatever time is required to help you to understand your new airgun.

Try before you buy

To help you get the most from your new purchase, we will invite you to our indoor 20-metre range and supply a selection of pellets for you to try, thus ensuring that upon leaving our store you will know which pellets your new airgun prefers. All this is backed up by our lifetime warranty, and servicing of any new gun over the value of £300, along with more range vouchers to visit us again whenever it suits you.

Easy to find

Crackshot is the only specialist airgun store in the South West, based near to Newton Abbot and only a couple of minutes off the main A38, so finding us is easy, and we’re sure it’s also worthwhile. We can also supply any gun to anywhere in the country (via your RFD). We will also ensure that, if needed, the gun is zeroed and set up, ready for you to take it out of the box and start shooting.
