    Hi Everyone,

    Just joined the site after getting back in to airguns after a few years away. I worked in Pest Control for 10 years and I was lucky enough to be the marksman so pre-charged guns are not new to me but jesus they have come a long way since I have been away. I have just joined my local club at Emley and started to mix with the crowd (nice bunch of guys and girls) however I am also a big Pike angler so its hard to balance both shooting and fishing with a young family so at this moment in time I am just enjoying a bit of target shooting with my Hatsan AT44-10 in .22 which is as hard as peeing in the wind :eek: but I am on the hunt for a dedicated target rifle which means trying out a few at the club to see what fits before I throw £ £ £ at it.
    That's my quick intro and thanks for having me ;)
