It would be nice to see him doing something useful wouldn't it?

I don't know of any places that do air rifle weekends. However, if you do end up with your own make sure you get a pellet catcher for practising with rather than leaving lead laying about where wild or domestic birds might pick it up.

If you have lots of bunnies to shoot then I would think a compressed air multi-shot air rifle is what you should hope to practice with or perhaps a .22LR rifle if the bunnies get shy.

I 'spose you could get "rabbit bars" for your 4x4 rather than bull bars and then you could simply mow down your veg nibbling varmints.

If someone's got the land, I'd be happy to offer basic lessons in choosing a rifle/air rifle and scope, zeroing, ranging, marksmanship etc. None of the people I shoot for would take kindly to my using their land for a shooting school, but other than that, I'm happy to help.

There's all sorts of them about, just stick pellet catcher into google.

Something like this is very common, it holds your target and catches the spent pellet.
