    Afternoon all, just started out with Castle field club near Nottingham and looking for other shooters advice on first set-up.
    I know everyone has a preference on type PCP / Spring, but I'm open to ideas.
    Unfortunately I haven't got unlimited funds, so a start up budget of £750 ish.

    Any advice on rifle / scopes etc warmly received.

    Hi and welcome, I went through the same thing only a couple of months ago and have already changed both gun and scope. My advice would be to talk to as many people at Castle as you can as they are good guys and very knowledgeable.
    Good luck

    Try before you buy

    Wellcome to the mad house
    If you go to Castle on a Saturday and ask nicely ,you will find most will allow you a couple of shots of there rifles. Just bare in mind that the rifles will be set up for them and not you. Concentrate on the firing cycle , feel and the weight of the rifles . If your budget is for rifle only I would say an Ev2 , if to include scope then maybe a pro target .

    Thanks for your help, I've only been down for a few hours and already had lots of advice. Will go on Saturday this weekend as both my visits have been on a Sunday.
