Thumbs up Hello from Turkey


I’m Başar, from Izmir/TURKEY. I have been shooting since 2008. I have focused especially on BR and FT disciplines of late years.

In Turkey, there is no maximum power limit for ordinary air gun use. Anyone above the age of 18 can legally buy one but you must carry the invoice with your air gun.

In the other hand, the energy limit for the FT competitions is 30 ft⋅lbf. This power allows the use of .22 cal without problems.

Right now I am running Air Arms S500 .22 Xtra FAC - regulated by Altaros.

In 2013 there will be three national FT competitions in Turkey. First one will be in İzmir on 19th May and the other ones will be in İstanbul and in Ankara. For 2013, may be there will be one national BR competiton too.

Hope to meet you one day at a competition.
