it’s showtime

IT HARDLY feels like any time has passed since we were celebrating the turn of the year, and yet show season is already in full swing. As I write, the Great British Shooting Show has just passed, I’m about to pack for the IWA Outdoor Classics show in Nuremberg, and then it’s my local West of England Game Fair the following weekend. The Great British Shooting Show really has gone from strength to strength since its move to the Birmingham NEC last year. Everyone who’s anyone in the shooting industry now seems to consider the event an absolute must, and the result is a bustling show with lots of great new gear and loads of brilliant deals for punters. We’ve pulled together a round-up of some of the exciting new kit…

the talos principle

“IF YOUR SHOT IS FALLING HALF A MIL LOW, FOR EXAMPLE, YOU’LL NEED TO ADJUST UP BY FIVE CLICKS” First focal plane telescopic sights are on the rise.

But again like bullpups, they’re here to stay, with the Talos BTR 4-14x44 from US company Athlon Optics being a great example of the latest breed. The Talos BTR 4-14x44 is a bit of a Goldilocks scope, being not too long at 12.9 inches (32.8cm), not too big with a 44mm objective lens, and offering a useful magnification range from 4-14x that’s just right for most applications.
