Default Hello from sunny Stoke on Trent

Hi all,

Hi Gary

There's quite a few shooters in Stoke or thereabouts.

You may already know all this but have only just joined STB or you may be newish to airgunning ...

There are shops at Dolphin in Stoke, Whieldon Rd. and Pets n Pastimes in Butt Lane Kidsgrove and SCR near Audley.

Dolphin has a sheltered 40 yard range. OK for zeroing. You stand and lean against a carpeted shelf or a bean bag etc.

There is a HFT club at Kingsley Moor, not far outside Hanley.

FT clubs nearby at Far Coley ( nr Cannock ) and Byley ( Middlewich ). General target stuff at Quarnford ( HFT or FT ... shoot how you like ) with plenty of wind and wonderful views ( near Flash between Leek and Buxton ).

A 40 yard bench rest shoot near Norton Green.

So lots to do for airgunners in Stoke.

Enjoy STB. Loads of very knowledgable folk here so just ask if you need owt.

( ... and it's not sunny this morning fella is it ... Thunder/lightning and chucking it dine ).

Nope, not sunny at all today.

Thanks for the info too.

Yes I have been a gun collector and modder for some time but it never really bothered me about shooting them till a few pals dragged me off to Dolphin a couple of weeks ago.

I just spent my time modding Crosmans some of which can be seen on my website

That said I have had some fine rifles pass through my hands over the years.

It was at Dolphin where I took my Bowkett R10 for shoot that I first had a go of a DS Mk4, I knew then I just had to have one so off went the R10 when I saw the Platinum Charlie had for sale.

Appealing to me as a collector with it being 100/100 and I just had to use this one. With some help I am getting better so I am enjoying this one more than any of my others.
