Rifleman Firearms – Annual Open Day – Saturday 19 May

  • Listed: 8th May 2018 10:39 am
  • Expires: 158 days, 23 hours


“Since it’s conception just over 4 years ago, Rifleman Firearms have been putting on an annual Open Day to raise money for charity and to provide an exciting, informative and fun day out for all the family. Hundreds of people now look forward to the day, as year-on-year the event has grown and developed to offer a range of challenging competitions to suit all levels of ability and the whole of Bowden’s estate now becomes home to many trade demonstration stands for the day, all keen to chat enthusiastically about their range of products and let visitors have a play with old favourites and new releases. You will find representatives from leading name companies like Hawke, BSA, Remington, Edgar Brothers, Ruag, GMK, Nightforce, Minox, Weihrauch, Vortex, Zeiss and plenty more, including some smaller local manufacturers. For a modest donation to charity, visitors can pit their skills against one another in a bid to win one of the great air rifle prizes on offer as they try their hand on the 90-yard air rifle range, or have a go at ‘shooting the egg’ in the quickest time. There is also the chance to win a range finder by guessing the distance of a number of decoys set around the estate, or simply purchase a raffle ticket in the hope of winning one of the other fabulous prizes kindly donated by suppliers. Visitors can try their hand at clay pigeon shooting with expert guidance, or simply sit and sip their cider in a quieter corner. Whether you are a seasoned shooter or completely new to the sport there will be a wealth of knowledgeable people to talk to, lots of interesting products and ideas to think about and definitely a lot of fun to be had. Food and beverage is always in ample supply so everyone can relax and refuel throughout the day. As this year the Open Day – which will be held on Saturday 19 May; 10am to 4pm – and is shared with the Royal Wedding – there may even be a few extra surprises to entertain visitors! So if you’re looking for a great way to spend the day with family or friends, why not come down and visit us at Bowdens Farm, Hambridge in Somerset!”
