We don't do this seriously at our club, but we do have a couple of Webley Nemesis which from my point of view seem well suited. They have enough knock down power, they are accurate, pretty well recoil free, and being single stroke pneumatics are self contained.

Just a little on the big side for younger hands.

I would use an Brocock Aim x, deadly accurate and more than powerful enough too

aimx's are good, there is never any doubt if you hit the kill that the target wont fall even if the club uses standard / full sized targets.

Can recommend the HW40 single stroke pneumatic .177in/4.5mm cal recoiless,
fibre optic sight system is clear and easy to use the gun itself is very accurate, and can easily reach out to 20yds with a Rhino 2x32 pistol scope or better fitted using domes,

Long reach performance is best with AA 4.52mm domes/Daystate 4.51mm domes, set up one or the other at 6yds for a perfect center shot on paper,

10yds, tin chickens aim at bottom of kill zone, as range shortens aim slightly higher to accomodate slow rise in trajectory,

Have sold my Scoped HW40, having won the last but one Kibworth Pistol Shoot and then came sixth with a HW45,22in (Sad Reference To Parentage)

I am now currently salivating over my next Pistol, Brocock Atomic .22in,

All I need is Wonga!!!

If you fancy a PCP pistol then for the money you just can't beat the AimX, the trigger is much lighter than a standard Falcon although they are pretty much the same trigger design.
