The UK’s first show dedicated to Target Shooting and all its various disciplines is set to debut next month.
Combining all aspects of target shooting, from airguns to .50 caliber long range precision shooting, the Target Shooting Show will unite the sport under one roof on 16-17 November 2019 at the NAEC, Stoneleigh.
Organisers say the show originated as other fairs and shows “mainly showcase hunting and field sports. Only a small portion of the large shows catering for target shooters and what they wanted to see at a gun show.” This show is purely about target shooting in all its various forms in the UK.
Organisers continued: “Naturally there is a huge cross over between hunters and target shooters in the guns, equipment and accessories we use, and there will be plenty to see and buy at the show for all shooters.”
The Target Shooting Show originated last year in Exeter as the Practical Shooting Show, and now expands its scope as well as moving to the new Midlands-based venue.
In 2019, the show will promote, support and showcase all UK target shooting sports, namely Gallery Rifle, Small-bore Rifle, CSR, F Class, HFT, FT, Benchrest, Long Range Precision, Target Pistol, Air Gun, Practical, Clays, Black Powder, Classic Arms, Action Air, Airsoft and more.
As well as individual target shooters in the UK, the show aims to appeal to the clubs and associations that represent these shooters.
The show will have five live fire ranges at the show, including .22LR, Action Air and Bell Target and Air Rifle. In addition, over 70 distributors and retailers signed up for the show and there will be a huge amount of guns, firearm accessories, optics and clothing for sale.
The Target Shooting Show has announced its official show partner is the Tunnel Target Sports Centre, and other official show sponsors include Black Rifle/MDT rifle stocks, Eley Ammunition, Shield Sights, and the United Kingdom Practical Shooting Association.
