IWA OutdoorClassics – The World’s Biggest Airgun Trade Show

Yes, it’s true that the SHOT Show is a big deal here in the USA. However, it’s mainly associated with firearms. The world’s biggest airgun trade show is – by far – IWA OutdoorClassics.

The IWA Show is held in Nuremberg, Germany every year. The next show will be from 6 -9 March 2020. HAM will be reporting from the show, of course.
