    BBC Game Fair

    Just had an invite to buy tickets for this show, will I be going, no chance.
    How many feel the same way?
    How's your end of the gene pool today?

    Must be another BBC side-line using license payers money.

    So recently we have colluding with the police and chartering a helicopter for a raid on Cliff Richards house.
    Hiring out Wembley arena for a TV debate
    And now running a county fair.

    It would be handy if they done the job they are paid for and gave us unbiased TV programmes. That cant seem to do that either.

    Perhaps that's the right way to go - challenge perceived prejudices on their home turf similar if you like to the RSPB at the last CLA. After all you have to speak to people if you want to educate them.
    I think that many shooters actually see prejudice when it doesn't exist, just ignorance. A bit like inverted snobbery if you like.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    +1 to that

    This is a prime opportunity for shooting organisations to directly target people who are usually inaccessible. We all know the importance of shooting to wildlife, its value the economy, that shooters are often amongst the most upstanding and friendly of communities. But the attitude I most often encounter with non-shooting people is one of total ignorance. They aren't inherently against shooting, but they know literally nothing about it. People sometimes stop to ask me what I'm doing with my dog (out training) and they're totally fascinated when I tell them.
    It's easy to be against something, or indifferent to its plight, when you know nothing about it. But if we, as a collective, can get shooting out there onto the radar of the 'mainstream" population then maybe we stand more chance of getting our voices heard next time they're proposing a ban, or hiking up licencing fees, or the press are harping on about toffs in tweed, or whatever else. People will believe the negative anti message if it's all they ever hear.

    Very well put and + 1 to what you say
    i shall be there with the NGO as a keeper,stalker and dog person talking to people who as you rightly say I probaley wouldn't encounter normally,
    shooting on the whole is a minoirty within the UK population but it's contribution it brings to the countryside is massive so it right that the shooting organitions should be at this show,
    hopefuly we can biuld a few bridges and change a few minds showing people that it's not all as Chris Packem portrays!
