It was good to meet you on Sat even if only briefly when you booked in,
Don't rush into buying a load of gear, come along to a few shoots chat with everyone and try a few rifles, most of us are happy that let people try their rigs.
Get a feel for what you like, a lot of people waste a lot of money by rushing in to buying the wrong gear and the shops are always happy to take your money !!
If your free on Sunday come over to the Misfits Matchplay, there will be plenty of rifles for you to try and it should be a fun day out

Welcome mate.....you won't go wrong with the Kiibby and Misfits lot, sound bunch.

One bit of advice though, make sure you chat with the Lads and lasses before spending your money. You'll get excellent advice and they may even be able to use their contacts to save you some cash.

You'll not go far wrong with a Steyr (so long as you keep the barrel clean) & if got does act up there's plenty of advice on here. Which Hawke scope is it?
