    I'm fairly new to shooting. I joined Southampton Buccaneers FTC recently and bought a used Air Arms TX200. Since realised that it needs quite a lot of accessories/mods to turn it into something that's comfy and usable. (SWMBO has become increasingly bemused by the amount of time I now spend making hamsters and comb raisers etc. in the garage).

    Looking forward to meeting you all (virtually).

    Thanks everyone for your kind welcome.
    Holly and Strokebloke. I am intending to get involved, but being a complete novice I am trying to get a grasp of the basics before attempting anything like a winter league. I'm planning to have a go at the Buccaneers club league this year as a first step.

    Hi

    Hi up mate . try to get in with some one who knows what they are doing at the club . the buccs ground is superb to shoot over . but could be a bit harsh for some one who is just starting out in FT . if you don't hit everything in sight to start with , be cool . nobody wins the world champs in there first year ( some of us never win anything , hey jack :D ) if you can get a shooting partner , this will help a lot . what you need to do is to listen and try . try and modify are the words you are looking for . the hard bit is that after being in the game for three weeks and picking up the lingo . a lot of new shooters become EXPERTS . try to stick with those that can talk the talk AND walk the walk . above all keep doing what you are doing at the mo , ENJOYING IT . Luck ??? HOLLY:):cool:
