    Hi,
    I got back into air rifle shooting a while ago, shooting in my mates farm and having the odd session at Doncaster indoor range. I finally got round to joining Pontefract club and really enjoying shooting there. I'm currently shooting a TX200HC with Hawke panorama so thinking of having a go at HFT. Maybe one day get an FT set up as well.
    I've been reading loads on this forum and got so many answers to questions I had (thanks for that!) so finally joined last month.
    Anyway, just off to Pontefract to watch a bit of FT shooting to see what it's all about.
    Chris

    Hi Terry,
    Thanks for the welcome. It was good to have a wander round and chat with a few people about FT and shooting in general. I couldn't stick around for too long as I had my son with me. He's only 5, but wanted to see what it was all about.

    Hi Chris, that sounds great, thanks! I'd definitely be up for that. I'm a bit busy for the next couple of weekends but I'll definitely drop you a message and head over.

    Hi Lee!
    It was good to have a chat on Saturday mate. I'm going to try my best to get him shooting, I've already been looking at the cost of an S200!! I think he might be a bit young yet, he's only 5, but he'll definitely be getting an air rifle for his birthday at some point. What sort of age do people start getting kids shooting?
    I'll definitely be up for shooting with you, thanks for that. I'm not going to be there every weekend unfortunately (usually at bloody kids parties!) but I'll drop you a message when I'm going to be there if that's ok? I'm a "mature" (old) student at the moment so making the most of the days off and going to get to the club during the week when I can. Are you ever there during the week?
    I'll also be speaking to chrisc and heading over to Emley as soon as I can. I'm going to need as many tips as I can, and I'll make sure I'm armed with food for everyone! haha!
