British Shooting Show Feb 2018

The 3-day 2018 British Shooting Show in its new location at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, has been well supported by sporting shooters and hunters alike.

It was a bold move by the BSS organisers to move the show to the much larger NEC complex this year but one that seems to have paid off.

Attendance has been steady over the 3 days with most show goers agreeing it was reasonable value for the entrance fee asked.
