Hello to all !!! I joined Ponte ARC in spring last year with the idea of shooting in some form of competition not just to plink. I have never owned or shot an FT rifle but after watching hrs of YouTube videos I decided this was what most appealed to me. So, end of April I turned up at a club where I knew no one, with a new FT set up I knew nothing about, trying to get into a sport I knew very little about. What a friendly bunch of people you Air Gunners are !!! So there I was sat in the plinking range when a voice out of no where said '' Ay up, here's some one who's gunner show us all how to do it'' to which I replied '' I need someone to show me how to do it''. From that moment on I was taken under the wing of a chap who has done so much for me, he is a credit to the sport. It wasn't long and I was taken along to my first shoot and from that moment on I've become addicted, Big Time. I can't thank everyone enough who have helped me along the way, and there have been quite a few. The shoots are very well organised and its so good to be part of a sport where everyone is very friendly and so keen to help each other. I was told about this forum a few months ago and I've been visiting it quite regularly although not as a member to see shoot results and to pick up on the mass of knowledge that is out there. Finally I've decided to dip my toes in and open an account. So here I am, Hello to all !!!
