The Northern Shooting Show extends an invitation to airgunners of every kind
Following the hugely successful second year, and after a very busy year’s planning, the Northern Shooting Show is delighted to announce the finishing touches are now in place for the 2018 show to be held over the weekend of May 12 and 13. As before, it will be at the Yorkshire Event Centre just off the A1, east of Harrogate. There are now two additional halls to accompany the two main ones making the show even bigger, and with even more exhibitors, attractions and activities, it promises to be even better than last year.
At the Northern Shooting Show we recognise the importance of airgun shooting, and just like last year, they’ve dedicated a huge amount of indoor and outside space to all things airgun.
Big names, top kit
So what have they got in store for you this year? Well, if you’re hoping all the big-name manufacturers will be there, you won’t be disappointed. Air Arms, BSA (including the BSA heritage area), GAMO, Brocock, Daystate, and Weihrauch, will be returning, along with Armex with Walther and Umarex and Kral on the airgun range to try, too. There are plenty of new guns being launched at the show, so keep a look out for those. If you’re looking for optics, then you need look no further than MTC, Hawke, NiteSite and NVUK, to name but a few.
All the gear and loads of ideas
Of course, that’s just the rifle and scope manufacturers. If you’re looking for kit and accessories, visit one of the many retailers present at the show such as; Scott Country, G&T Hunting, Ronnie Sunshines, Redbeck Shooting Supplies, Sure Shot Airguns and North Notts Shooting Supplies. There will also be trade stands with organisations such as NSRA, happy to a advise you.
Should you require a little bespoke advice or guidance, Terry Doe and the team from Airgun World at your disposal, and if 10m match is your thing, then you can call on the experts from Walther, Anschutz and Tesro. Rest assured, there will be accessories galore, plus footwear and specialist clothing manufacturers and retailers in abundance. You’ll even find the famous Rose Cottage pantry pork pies there!
