Default Hello from Dorset

Hi everyone. I was recommended to have a look at this site and decided to join. I shoot everything from air rifles to full bore. We have a growing plinking section at our shooting club and are trying to pursuade the Target Sports Centre to put in a field target range. Fingers crossed. I have several air rifles including an Original model50E ( very underpowered even after a new spring and piston washer) and a newish BSA Lightning XL. Very accurate but the trigger is awful and I mean awful! Its so heavy I'm amazed I can hit anything with it.
