Thanks Jim, quite happy to travel a bit for better experience. A bit like sailing - live near Stoke by Nayland but sailed for years at Waldringfield SC just for the high quality of the racing - still the most competitive wayfarer fleet in the countryHi Dave.. yes I agree,
Charlotte is in the Army Cadets and gets to do more shooting than me.. and with a proper rifle.. she is away again this weekend with the cadets for two days of 'fun' at the Thetford training camp.. .. odd for such a girlie girl to enjoy such male pursuits.. only yesterday we were building sandcastles.. now she wants to join the Army..
David.. I went to the one in Colchester when we lived there.. it is excellent.. they have a woodland area and a circuit to go round and shoot at targets hiden in trees .. also a training area for sighting up and practicing ..
Hi Jon, you should have spoken to Julian about Guns. He's got a few!I shoot both small bore and fullbore disciplines but have a hankering for a CO2 pistol!
I reckon a CO2 pistol could be a great addition to a Practical Mini Rifle course of fire to make it a 2 gun match.
If anyone in West Norfolk is interested in getting into shooting, just google Kings Lynn St Michaels Rifle and Pistol Club.
There is a local airgun club and field archery club too for those who wish to wear tights!
There's High Lodge for tuition for clay shooting? http://highlodge.co.uk/activities/clay-pigeon-shooting/Jim, are there any decent clubs that you know of around this area (I live about 20 mins from Ipswich)? Thanks
Can't shoot a shotgun........ Couldn't get on with them..... Thanks anywayThere's High Lodge for tuition for clay shooting? http://highlodge.co.uk/activities/clay-pigeon-shooting/
You can fit a muzzle brake to shotguns and rifles. They reduce felt recoil by directing muzzle blast rearwards, propelling the gun forwards as you fire. This reduces recoil considerably.Delicate shoulders?
Under normal circumstances Jon you are of course correct.Good advice, but I dispute the fact that an air rifle pellet will carry enough energy to even reach a mile, let alone kill at that range.

That was my last air rifle, but with a single point sight. I haven't shot one for about 20 years, it's all shotguns round here now.I always shot .177 in my air rifle hunting days. A Weihrauch HW35 with Bushnell 4x32 scope.
I always favoured the flatter trajectory over .22.
The bunnies never knew the difference!
