Trade Fair at the Trafalgar 20-21 October 2018

The Trafalgar meeting is a great event for those wishing to compete with classic or reproduction firearms.

This Meeting is full of character, with competitors seen entering into the spirit of the event and some wearing appropriate clothing for the firearms used at the time.

The guns being used attract attention especially when, what is basically a museum piece, can be seen in full operational glory.

This offers the pleasurable opportunity to use, view and handle historical, classic and vintage arms.

Museums and private collectors do preserve our heritage firearms, however practical use by shooters with knowledge of these guns adds another dimension.

These firearms being shot across the ranges is a reminder of the history of their development, from flint muzzle-loader or matchlock, to breech-loading nitro cartridge firearms.

There is also something for the collector at the Trade Fair over the weekend – a good opportunity to search for those hard-to-find pieces of kit as well as to discover new items for your collection.

As in previous years, the Trade Fair is held in a purpose built marquee on Sit Pet Lawn with Outside exhibitors on Sit Pet Lawn.
