Just about to start packing our wares and head across to Moy to set up for Friday kick-off.

Rain doesn't seem to be an issue this year - aside from lack of it, but be interesting to see how the new graevelled track ways work out. We've finally made it from the outer edges and are now at the top end ( away from lake ) of one of the main rows - C5 if that means anything to anyone else.

We are going in RFD mode and will have a selection of rifles along - including a Sauer 100 243 package deal, a range of 202's and assortments - including a s/h but utterly mint Tikka T3 Lite 30-06 with Swaro Z6 scope. We will also have a limited quantity of ammo with us - this is always difficult because of security, weight, storage etc and murphy always at large - at Scone we had folk for near every single calibre/ option we'd decided not to bring! So drop us a pm / e mail/ text and let us know if after something specific. We will have a chunk of Privi PPU 22-250 SP ammo with us - per promise to the two gentlemen at Scone!

We've now taken delivery of a range of patches made up specifically for us and will have there in quantity - 3/4 Sq, 1, 1 1/2 & 2" Round - in packs of 250 with 1000 rate discounts even for mixed batches. These are first order quality and priced to quell even the most die-hard bargain moaner.... though of course doesnt answer question of whether to bother cleaning at all :D.

We'll have range of usual cleaning gear and chemicals - including new supply of the excellent Forrest Bore Foam. And of course a large selection of the kits ( and spares ) from the OTIS TECHNOLOGY range - from full Patriot kit for just £18 to full field kits for multi calibres. No pressure selling - come have a look at then if you've not seen before.

VORTEX - working with Rob & Jess at Monarch we now have a great working arrangement so at long last will have along scopes & rangefinders in addition to our usual binoculars. Great optics - but make up your own mind by coming and trying them out. we'll also have a long a selection of the brilliant Vortex Defender scope caps. Its been a struggle since Butler Creek really lost the plot on quality; but having now used these Vortex caps for several months they get full seal of approval - very flexible in fitting and tough, very tough. Save uncertainty - if thinking about, take a quick measure ( in mm ) of your objective and eye lens diameter ( to outside of scope ) before coming.

We've also a very limited number of the Monarch Roe and Sika Sacks - dont leave it too late on these as folk who come to see what the fuss was about tend to buy them.

And has your Buttolo finally given up the ghost to DEET midge spray? We've a new stock on hand.

No arts/ crafts/ Artisan Pasties or tie-dye underwear - but proper stalking/ shooting related gear. No obligation, open advice/ chat about stalking, training DSC1 & 2, the courses we offer and there are some additional places now open on the unique joint course we are running with the multi award winning Paul Kirtley of Frontier Bushcraft - Forest Hunter 6 day course - come have a chat about it. ( Forest Hunter Course | Deer Stalking, Firearms and Fieldcraft Training )

Naturally there will be a display of specialised stunt Jaffa cake eating - dependant only on a certain SD member actually producing the goods after what has, quite frankly, been a rather disappointing performance over this last year on the promised confectionary front... no names....:-|

First chance to write - just a brief thank you to all that came to the fair and especially anyone you made it to us. As always - swamped and never enough time to give people the time they deserve - even the Jaffa cakes had to be air dropped.... :D

Much improved ground with drainage and trackways - spoke with organisers and relayed concerns it was edging toward Artisan/ Craft fair with very few hardware folk there. But that is also part of wider state of retail play with interweb etc and not sure there is any totally happy solution. But organisers were aware and thinking on it.

Until next year....

Hope you did t get too much ear ache from the boss about Jaffa cakes ....

Very little in way of any fishing stands.... apparently Scone was same ... shame.

Yes regarding hardware I think including yourselves you could count one hand stands with rifles ?

Good day regardless and a great atmosphere fair

I couldnt agree more with your parting statement about the craft fare. Unfortunatly, this was the single worst year of the fair i have been to in 15+ years of attending.Increased entrance fee's and an argos style catalogue that i didnt even want. The show was a joke and i believe you may have been the only lot with guns for sale? Great shame as it used to be about country sports. No fishing stalls, 1 shooting stall ... just cheap tat and shower heads.

The organisers have ultimately lost focus and gone for the money making option.

If it wasnt for the clay shoot it would be better of classed as a village fete.

We wont be back.
