Fear not, if yesterday’s bundle didn’t do the trick, we have even more for you today!
Muckboot Chore Gamekeeper
This is a rugged no-nonsense boot that is ideal for muddy tracks and fields. Waterproof, lightweight and flexible, it’s made from 5mm neoprene, with rubber overlay and a quick-cleaning sole. The upper is reinforced in the toe and heel areas, and has additional arch support. Sizes 6-13.
MacWet gloves give good grip and feel as well as providing protection from the elements. Available in a large range of sizes and half sizes, they come in two cuff lengths and two thicknesses.
The ClimaTec is for winter use, and the summer one is thinner and more breathable for use on warmer days. There are warmer gloves on the market, but for feel when operating a gun, MacWet are hard to beat.
British Shooting Show tickets
The Great British Shooting Show is a must for shooters, showcasing the latest guns, clothing and equipment for every type of shooting, and all under one roof at the NEC in Birmingham.
The 2020 show runs from 14 to 16 February, and there are savings to be had by buying tickets in advance, whether for a single day, two days or the whole three-day show.
Prices from £18 for a one-day ticket.
Teague Universal choke wrench
The Teague universal fit choke wrench works on any choke. The neat design relies on friction fit to grip the choke for insertion and removal, so isn’t recommended for freeing chokes that are stuck – but that shouldn’t be a problem with proper maintenance. For someone who shoots multiple guns it’s ideal as you only need carry one key.
Anyone who moans about cleaning their gun will love the Magic Bore Drill Kit. We have covered the system in this magazine earlier this year – it’s a kit that can be fitted to a power drill and combines a long phosphor bronze brush with an integrated microfibre mop – meaning you can shift stubborn lead and plastic fouling in a fraction of the normal time. It’s also available with a handle for manual cleaning.
Prices from £50
Northern Shooting Show
The Northern Shooting Show is a must for shooters of all types. Held at Harrogate on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 May, the indoor exhibition halls are packed with major manufacturers, distributors and retailers, with acres of outside areas where you can try out shotguns, enter the clay shooting competitions or have-a-go at clay shooting. Parking is free, and kids go free courtesy of BASC.
Härkila heated gilet
Just the thing for anyone who feels the cold, this Härkila Heat Waistcoat has its own built-in heating system. It has a thin heating membrane powered by its own powerbank in the pocket, controlled with the button on the front or an app on your smartphone, dialling the right amount of heat to keep you warm and comfortable.
Clay Shooting magazine subscription
The perfect gift for the clay shooter this Christmas is a subscription to Clay Shooting, the UK’s top clay shooting magazine. Each issue is packed to the brim with up-to-the-moment news, shoot reports, gun and cartridge reviews, interviews, training tips and more. From as little as £17.50 for six months, with two free gifts. Check out the special offer on page 40.
Beretta range bag
The Uniform Pro Field Bag from Beretta can hold a whole slab of cartridges. It has elasticated loops for chokes and separate zipped closure compartments on three sides for accessories, twin handles with velcro flap and a shoulder strap, and a mesh compartment for a bottle or flask.
William Evans shooting glasses
These shooting glasses come with four different lenses for changing weather conditions – clear, yellow, orange and smoke – in a handy protective case with plenty of space to store the glasses and lenses together, perfect for keeping in your kit bag so you can swap colours as you need.
Price was £70, reduced to £50
Fairfax & Favour Explorer boots
These practical and rather stylish boots marry country style to die for to a comfortable pair of boots with Vibram soles suitable for all weather conditions.
The look is completed by tassels which attach to the zips. By default these match the colour of the boot, but can be ordered in additional colours – in fact the tassels are an ideal stocking filler at £20-£30.
The simplest way to give shooters what they want is a voucher – and there are many grounds up and down the country who offer vouchers for a lesson or practice round, or for the newcomer a have-a-go session with a qualified instructor.
The Spitfire Shoot at Stockbridge in the Hampshire area have gift vouchers for all levels. Their guided taster sessions start from £55 per person and practice vouchers for licensed shooters start at £18.
