Yeah but where's the weekend of fun to go with that? I know I'll never get round to shooting unless I go out of my way to start, this might be the opportunity that does it.


Go to blackpool for the weekend, they're bound to have an air rifle range at the fun fair.

A 2 pronged approach.

Choose somewhere nice to go to and go there for the weekend. Enjoy.

On your return, buy an air rifle and practice.

Invite the lads round to eat meat, shoot cans and reminisce about the best weekend ever.

I was going to suggest the very same thing. we shot air rifles as kids, and now grown adults need a three week health and safety course before even venturing into a gun shop.


So, have you got air rifles for your sprogs yet?

In Blackpool? A more depressing hell-hole I cannot think of.

They are FAC over here. Local laws. You hardly ever see 12ft/lb rifles over here due to it. But the local shop have a nice 18ft/lbs at 250 with scope that I'm looking at. It takes 12 weeks for the licence admin though.

Dunno about the flyfishing, can't see any of us ever taking it up, so how about:

A weekend somewhere nice where they run courses in air rifles, the sort that we could use for rabbit control....

All ideas appreciated.
