    Any CLA reports?

    Any reports from visits to the CLA Game Fair this year?
    What was good?
    What was bad?
    What was your overall impression?

    Went yesterday with derek.snr. I thought it was a great show. Met up with a few SD members and caught up with all our suppliers and a few customers.

    Friday entrance fee of 29 quid is a bit of a pi55 take, but it is what it is. Got in at 0900 and left at 1930. No traffic problems whatsoever but it was very hot, well into 30+ degrees.

    Food, as ever, is expensive - 7.00 for a cheeseburger made me smile. We just took our own grub and left our cool bag at the rear of Sportsman Gun Centre stand (Cheers Gary). Make sure you take/drink LOTS of water.

    ​Agree 100% with this! The whole rifle can be totally stripped in a couple of minutes just using the top sling swivel as a tool!

    Travelled down on Thursday and stayed on the CLA campsite. Got up Friday and went for a shower at 5:15am to avoid the rush only to find a line of gents waiting for a shower! We were informed that only 2 showers were unlocked and the others would not be opened till 6am.
    Pre paid tickets enabled a swift entry and once inside as other years I was not disappointed.
    The weather was glorious but as the temperature increased the pace slowed and all shaded areas were heavily populated. i left for home this morning at 9:30am and the traffic entering did not appear too bad, with a cloudy sky it should be a better day for walking round the fair.
    Overall another good CLA, spent too much but it's only once a year (weather permitting)

    Glad I didn't pay to get in... Bag o ****e, not much to buy that can't be bought cheaper on the Internet, full of gypos, idiots dragging dogs round and people that go just to get tanked up.. I would say save your cash and put it towards a trip to Kelso next year!

    regards

    +1. Very good guy on the strasser stand, excellent piece of kit, finally settled for the Mauser MO3 in wood in 6.5 x 55 and 308 as my bucket list top entry. Gotta save up for that piece of kit. Gotta have it.

    Overall a very good day, no travel hold ups, no trouble getting in or out 3 hrs each way for me. Good day out had by all, purchased some ammo and some stalking bits at good prices, no complaints good day all round
