    Back Garden shooting ok as long as the neighbours don't get annoyed with any noise, other small point is
    are the diving shops still open, pcp guns are great but useless without air supply, springers will be ok. :eek:

    I started shooting my 97 in the garden again the other day. The Steyr's too loud plus with the potential to be out of air in the not to distant future I thought it was the best excuse to dust off the 97 again; bloody lovely rifle!

    Agree that the steyr is pretty loud, but so are others, also with so many neighbours being at home it can be a problem.
    This particular part of Edinburgh is so quiet right now, hardly any traffic and usual outside noises are missing.
    I'm sure I heard a robin fart in the back garden. :D

    I took up Slingshot last year, can practice anywhere within reason.

    I'm so glad I did now!

    So long as I can shoot at a target, any target, with anything, I'll be content!!

    This is getting way too close to home. A member of my Son's sister -in-law's family has just passed away today from Covid19. Went in to Hospital for Kidney Dialysis - had a slight cough, test came back positive. Few days later and here we are.

    I have asked if I can re-post this and Jo was more than willing to let it out there.
    If by seeing this it saves 1 life then that's good.

    One thing that was pointed out by a Doctor was -

    Is anyone 110% sure they have no under-lying issues, (yet to be found, diagnosed), that could be a magnet for the Virus.
