    Hi everyone

    Just joined and am from Abergavenny in South Wales. Total beginner but looking to have a go at some target shooting - absolutely nothing live

    I found my old air rifle yesterday, its not been fired for 46 / 47 years - has 'NAT Commando ASI High Velocity' written on it - and it seems to work perfectly. I thought I would put a very cheap scope on it and see where I go from there. I was able to hit beer cans yesterday at a measured 40 metres (no scope) and it was going straight through both sides so hoping I can use it to at least practice with for a while before spending on some new kit.

    Its a bit late notice I guess but I've read somewhere that Blaina Gwent air gun club has a shoot in some fields on a Sunday close to Crumlin so I was thinking of popping along to say hello and hopefully a look around.. Anyone on here going today?

    Cheers

    Garry

    Thanks Bri. I did pop over this afternoon and met a few people, sorry I've not remembered all the names but had lots of great advice from David, John and Jim? - and even had a shoot with their guns which was brilliant..!

    I'll be back soon..!

    edit: and thanks Stu, I'm going to see if I can come over and have a look..

    Cheers
