    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.

Looking To Expand My Shooting

    I'm looking to try and expand my shooting, I only have a small range at home around 11 yards or so. I enjoy it and have a few things to shoot like spinners, knock down duck but currently shooting the ply reactive targets which are good fun and quite challenging at that range I find any way.

    I would like to try at different distances to see if can work out hold over/ under or if becomeing a chart and turret turner is the way forward.

    I have toyed with joining a club but I think there is only one near and only open one day a week. But also a little apprehensive about joining one too?

    Any suggestions?

    Go to local farms and ask if they would allow you to set up a few targets to shoot.

    Regards

    As above mate. I lived up the road from you in Petersfield for 30 years and there's farms all over.

    You could maybe get an air pistol to use at home ? I use mine at mainly 7 & 10yds.

    Have you tried Havant RPC (http://www.havant-rpc.co.uk/) as they are open most days of the week, but last I knew they were reaching membership capacity.

    There is also Portsmouth RPC (https://www.shrpclub.org/) that have indoor air rifle ranges at Hilsea

    Bit further afield, you have SBFTC at Romsey (http://www.sbftc.co.uk/default.htm?page=homepage) ; Botley Shooting Range (https://thegunshopbotley.com/the-range/) who open Tues to Sunday afternoons until mid-evening ; and Meon Valley Airgun Club at http://www.mvac.co.uk/ which comes highly recommended !

    I wouldn't be worried about joining a club as most cater for new and experienced shooters alike and are usually frequented by good people ... after all, you all have a common interest :up:

    Clubs welcome new shooters. My advice is have a run down to your local club and introduce yourself.
