The Target Air Rifle section has been run very successfully at the Cheshire Game & Angling Fair for many years by the Airgun Training & Education Organisation.
The ATEO have a section at the Fair set up where they have various knock down targets set at a distance of around 45 yards. They will also have various UK manufactured Air Rifles of various calibre like BSA, Brocock and Daystate to name a select few that you can try out your marksmanship out with.
The ATEO was primarily set up to educate, train and promote all aspects of airgun shooting to the public by a small group of dedicated air gun shooters. This has now grown with some dedicated coaches across the country and has become a regular fixture at many game and fairs up and down the country.
The ATEO will also be on hand to offer advice on various Air Rifle & Telescopic sights that are on the market whether it’s for Target Shooting or Pest Control or for more information on the ATEO www.ateo.org.uk
The aim the ATEO has set up a schools program to help inform youngsters of the law and how the use of this equipment correctly can be a way to control some pest species, without risk to other species that other methods can cause and how some of these pest species can be used to provide a organic and health food source.
