Default Hello from Cheltenham

Hi All,

I was once a teen-aged plinker way back in the mists of time... Air rifles hadn't even entered my thoughts for 20-odd years.

But then I drove past a sign near Cheltenham a few months ago advertising a new air rifle range (you might know the one I mean...)

suddenly I had to get one and have a go.

So, I hastily acquired a used HW95 .22 and have been shooting as much as i can since, I have also been up to Glevum shooting club for a look and hope to join.

what I think i have realized is; I want to have a go at HFT and/or FT, not sure which yet, so I may be picking your brains in a thread soon about competing at a local level.

what i have also realised is, i think i need a .177 of some description, and i like the idea of a full length HW77 that i can also try open sights with as well as fit a scope to, so i'll probably also be picking your brains about this soon as well...

anyway, I look forward to getting stuck into this site and contibuting to some threads etc, I look forward to speaking to you.

Default Glevum

Hi Ping, if your intention is to visit Glevum today Monday 20th Oct you need to be aware that it is the AGM and I doubt if you will be able to shoot.

sorry I forgot to welcome you to the forum and hope to see you up Glevum soon
