Why The Game Fair Is a Key Destination for Shooting Enthusiasts of All Disciplines

Gunmakers’ Row at The Game Fair is a vibrant and essential destination for shooting enthusiasts, offering a wide range of activities, expert advice, and an unparalleled shopping experience. 


At the heart of The Game Fair lies The Subaru Shooting Line, one of the longest shooting lines at any event, managed by the prestigious E. J. Churchill team. Here, visitors can engage in clay shooting under the guidance of highly qualified coaches, with options to either bring their own gun or have a coach select a suitable firearm for their session.


For those looking to sharpen their skills or learn the basics, superb teaching is provided by the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) and the Clay Pigeon Shooting Association (CPSA). These organisations offer comprehensive lessons covering eye dominance, safe gun handling, correct stance, gun fit, gun mount, and hitting moving targets. Lessons can be booked in advance at the BASC tent, with all necessary equipment provided.



Feeling competitive? The Game Fair Challenge, in partnership with Isuzu, is a notable highlight, featuring a 50-bird English Sporting clay competition designed by E. J. Churchill. Categories include Top Gun, Ladies High Gun, Best Junior Shot, Student Hot Shot, and Daily Top Shot. Additionally, the Have-a-go Woodcock Flurry, Pool Shoot, Rabbit Flurry, and The Game Fair Sportrap offer various levels of challenge and excitement, with opportunities to win daily cash prizes.


For those in the market for a new firearm, Gunmakers’ Row offers an extensive selection of new and second-hand guns, with experts on hand to ensure the perfect fit and provide knowledgeable advice. Shoppers can browse an impressive range of shotguns, rifles, airguns, accessories, and clothing from hundreds of global brands, making it a most comprehensive shooting exhibition. 



The CPSA at The Game Fair also hosts several prestigious competitions, including the CPSA Champion of Champions and The Game Fair Colts Challenge. These events draw top shooters from across England to compete for coveted titles, showcasing their skills in front of enthusiastic crowds.


For anyone interested in starting clay shooting, the CPSA stand is the place to be. Visitors can discuss the sport, address hot topics such as lead ammunition and firearms licensing, and enjoy complimentary tea and coffee. New members even receive a 10% discount when joining at The Game Fair.


In summary, The Game Fair is a must-visit for anyone passionate about shooting. Whether you're looking to improve your skills, compete, purchase a new gun, or simply enjoy the vibrant atmosphere, there's something for everyone at this premier event.
