1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    I not only enjoy this sport as a shooter I also like the history of how it came about

    I understand that British people long ago was allowed to plink in there back garden to (practice shooting) in the event that there was an invasion they were allready good at shooting and needed less time to train!

    I also heard that the Australian army (long ago) used air rifles instead of muskett rifles because they were quicker to load and cleaner to use

    You can, if you wish add your own snippet of knowledge will be most interesting

    It used to socially acceptable to own and use an air rifle without being frowned upon at the thought of being interested in shooting !!
