Where were we? Yes, we were late with our internet launch this month. Ourusual ‘rst of the month’ boast was thwarted - by an underground cable faultwhich took my internet down for six days – at a very critical time. I live in a smallvillage with its own telephone exchange and it suered a catastrophic failure.We were just back from the Las Vegas Shot Show, with but a few days to get themag. together and launch our Shot Show supplement. The US Shot Show was agreat experience for us – we met some great folk and we got to shoot plenty of pistol and lots of semi-auto stu and even some full-auto! The supplement willbe on-line very shortly, so keep checking our website.The Shot Show supplement will be another free download, as is this issue of Target Shooter which is kindly sponsored this month by the Shooting Show. TheNewark Shooting Show takes place on the 5th & 6th of February and is thelargest European shooting show open to the general public. Please have a lookat their website www.theshootingshow.co.uk but more importantly, please getyourself over to Newark and support YOUR show!Without our advertisers and sponsors, we couldn’t possibly keep Target Shooterfree to read on-line and we at Target Shooter are really looking forward toNewark and meeting as many of you as possible. Please come along to ourstand and say hello to the guys and gals who put together your favorite shootingmagazine and feel free to give us your thoughts and ideas.
