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 everyone im David and this is my first thread that im doing, please forgive me if i seem to be a bit slow in answering or asking questions this is all new to me. being an avid air rifle shooter does anyone have a preference for target shooting with a scope or iron sights. I find that I can spend hours zeroing my sights in and yet iron sights offer a more challenging shoot,

    David,

    For target shooting you'll probably be better off with a scope - get one all set up and you won't have to tweak it again for a while.

    If you're shooting bottles, cans, and anything else - like what I like to do, and I call it "informal target" - then open sights can often be more fun.

    Personally I prefer open sights to using a scope, but you'll need a scope for anything greater than about 15 - 20 yards.

    Good shooting,

    James.
