A site for airgunners that like to talk about it, as much as they like to do it...

Here we hope you will find up to date information, news and reviews, and as much info as we can pack in about competition airgun shooting in the UK and indeed, around the world.
As well as information and results, we'll be posting regular articles and reviews about aspects of the sports that we find interesting.
Organisations and clubs are welcomed to add info and events to the calender, and there are facilities for members such as a discussion forum and galleries etc.

On the left you'll find links to the forum and your control panel, and the search facility.
On the right you'll find the calender, which links to a thread in the forum specific to each event.
Below you'll find the news headlines, articles, polls and recent active threads from the forum.

Furnace Mill Rose Bowl R5 29/5/16
Great turn out for round 5 of the Rose Bowl this weekend. Thank you all for coming, was it the sunny forecast or the opportunity to shoot in the Enchanted Wood again? Thanks to Rob Lamerton for naming the course, apparently his pellets were guided by the fairies!
Congratulations to Jason Bressington for an excellent round.
Thank you to all the helpers that helped with the course, booking in and marshalling.

Please don’t forget to book in for the Saturday league on the 11th of June.

HFT Masters

Today we held the second HFT Masterclass at Petes Airgun Farm and from the feedback received it appears to have been a resounding success.

Starting the day with shooters who varied in experience, from complete novices to people who have done a few comps, and ending the day with a group of guys who are keen to shoot competitions.
We certainly had a few saying "It is so much easier doing it that way" and "kneelers and standers dont scare me anymore"
That is why we do these classes, just to pass on a bit of knowledge/advice to help shooters realise that we all shoot differently but the core principles are the same for everyone.

We would like to thank Pete for use of his facilities
The Airgun centre for the £10 vouchers
and last but definitely not least, the people who took part
