    I think i must be going soft but i am starting to enjoy a few competitions in my local club.
    Its more down to time as i have less on hunting now and at least i can get to fire the gun, not to say i will not pop out and hunt now and again.

    My rifles are .22 now so i am looking for a .177. Like a daft sod i sold the lower calibre for finances.

    So if a good target man on here can advice a good .177 rifle i would be grateful.
    Budget a bit low though unless secondhand.

    regards

    If your considering targeting/plinking as your main pastime I would consider a springer
    to keep the price down, you will find it more interesting/challenging to say the least
    as well as less equipment you would have if you had a PCP eg Divers bottle

    Goodluck

    Interesting.

    What would you reccommend. I have not had a springer since the 70's:D

    Being a springer man myself if I wanted another springer I would look for the follwing
    details:

    woodstock
    secondhand with a little wear-n-tear
    has a scope rail
    has iron sights
    is in .177 (max recoil for effect)
    has been serviced by gundealer
    brought off a gundealer (it will be legal)
    and is a break barrel

    then I would go and upgrade from there if its nessesary,

    The more you pay for a springer the better quality it is
