Ian Summerell opens our Countryside Ring with a bang once again this year. He is a gunsmith and knife-maker by trade and a passionate shot with a huge knowledge of guns and shooting. Today he presents “A History of the Sporting Gun” with his friend and colleague Den Kurle. Together they will take you through the history of this increasingly popular pursuit from the flintlock Manton to the modern day over and under. Expect lots of big bangs as several guns from the past and present are fired. It is a joy to see and hear some fabulous old guns with black powder being fired.
