Default Hi from London

I am a newbie from London. I was hunting for information on Weirauch HW57 when I stumbled into this group.

As you can guess I am pretty new to the air gun game. All my life I have spear-gunned fish but this summer the thirst for blood was not there, I enjoyed more to observe matting habits, without the gun you can get really close.

So, my new airgun will be mostly used for paper target practice. While I am still able, I will learn to stand and shoot with iron sights, with no support, therefore reasonably light gun is needed, but no breaking barrel style.

Later, who knows, I like to keep my options open.

I like to buy quality, but at the same time hate to invest heavily into something so new to me.

Being a diver I know a bit about compressed air, so I am not interested at this moment to go there.

I have CO2 gun at the moment, CO2 power is OK for BBs but for long winter shooting sessions, too wasteful.

Default Hi


Welcome to STB. I'm originally from London, not sure wher you'd go to shoot down there. If you can get out to Bisley Field Target Organisation near Woking they have excellent facilities and lots of friendly people to help and advise. A huge varying selection of rifles and pistols are used there.
