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.

    Hi Webmonkeyuk and welcome

    before you do any shooting of 'allowed quarry' you must be familiar with with the airgun law within this Country to do this I would recommend going to http://www.basc.org.uk/content/airriflepractice and make sure you are familiar with the code of practice for shooting in the countryside

    Im not from Teeside but im sure if you go to your local gunsmith/gundealer he will inform you of a shooting club for air rifles in your area

    but first go to the above wedsite and start there then keep asking those questions on this forum will soon be getting you shooting what you want

    Good luck

    David

    Hi monkey,It sounds like joining a club is your best option.Get a few tins emptied before you try your hand at live game.
    You'll need expressed permission from a landowner,who has need of pest control,before you can shoot anywhere.
    There's a plenty of knowledge on this forum,Keep on asking questions.

    How about buying a Knock down target gammo ones are only around £15 and try that ouside at varied distances .That way you can get used to the distances and build up your accuracy outside.

    Yeah go for one of those, but never forget that you can't go wrong with tin cans - they're a lot cheaper :)

    Obviously they're not quite as good, but you can still tell where exactly you hit them because of the pellet hole.
