The next, eagerly awaited shooting-only event opens its gates on the weekend of 7 and 8 May… It’s the Northen Shooting Show, at the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate. Here’s a round-up of some of the exhibitors who will be there to welcome you… See you there!
Night Master specialises in night hunting equipment, from Night Master lamps, IR illuminators, night vision monoculars, scopes, scope-add-ons to thermal imaging spotters and weapon sights. Night Master revolutionised lamping for many night hunters, with a compact, high power lamp with changeable LEDs. Today a Night Master lamp is a torch for life as every component is replaceable. Night Master entered the world of night vision with the development of the ATOM NV scope add-on. Since then they have tested, and continue to test, many different types of night vision and thermal imaging equipment.
They actually use the gear, so are well-placed to advise customers on what’s best for their needs.

Pellet test sheets help you choose the correct pellet for your rifle, as many factors have to be taken into consideration to achieve great accuracy: average ft/lb of your airgun in relation to pellet weight; number of turns created by your rifle barrelling and pellet shape to achieve a full rotation; head and skirt size; skirt length; pellet co-efficient. Come and pick up a pellet test sheet (available in .177 and .22) at Idleback’s stand. Pellet test sheets include premium pellets by top manufacturers: Air Arms Diabolo Field; Air Arms Diabolo Express (.177 only); Premier Ultra Magnum; JSB Exact; Webley Accupell; RWS Superdome; Weihrauch F&T; H&N Field Target Trophy; Falcon; Daystate Kaiser; RWS Superfield.

Innovation has been at the forefront of Daystate’s gun designs for decades. With its electronic Pulsar released last year, it broke the mould once more – and is still leading the way. It was 40 years ago that Daystate came up with the barrel-over-cylinder format, now known as a precharged pneumatic.
That same forward-thinking is also responsible for the electronic airgun, shown in its latest guise as the Daystate Pulsar. Visit their stand to view it.

No other airgun looks like it or performs like it. Its bullpup style carbine-length shortens the Compatto to just 864 mm (34 inches) but retains a full length 18in (457 mm) barrel and a 150cc air tube for maximum shots and power. The Compatto is all new; nothing has been left to chance, from its hi-tech polymer stock to an all-metal 10-shot magazine. The Compatto takes Brocock to a new design standard. See it and even shoot it on the company’s stand and airgun range.
