take a friend shooting

THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS are looming and for most of us that means a few precious days off and some extra time to spend out shooting. It’s a rare occasion when so many of us take holiday over the same period and a great chance to enjoy our sport in the company of friends. It is also a wonderful opportunity to introduce newcomers to shooting. Apart from passing on and sharing the pleasure of airgunning, it is also the best way to ensure the future of our sport, as new recruits really are its lifeblood. Too many people have reservations about shooting simply because they haven’t experienced it, don’t really understand quite what it entails and often aren’t sure how to get involved even if they want to. Giving people a chance to…

For some airgun shooters, a custom stock is a must-have item, helping enhance the fit of a rifle and increasing both their accuracy potential and enjoyment of the gun. But there are plenty of other shooters who choose to swap a stock simply because they want to personalise it and make it more aesthetically pleasing to their eye. Both are perfectly valid reasons for seeking out a new handle for your favourite airgun, and one company that makes these custom items is Form Rifle Stocks. Form produces a range of laminate wood stocks that are created by mixing high-tech CAD and CNC technology with old-school hand sanding to ensure a perfect finish. One of the stocks produced by the Devon-based firm is the Cromwell, which features a naturally high sweeping cheekpiece…

Here are two of mine. Though I stick to my precharged for hunting, I like to get the older ones out for a plink. It keeps me grounded, and there is something special about the smell of a gun that is older than you are! I would urge anyone to keep at least one open-sighter in their collection. The lighter-stocked rifle is a Relum ‘Super’ Tornado, meaning it had a brass butt pad and scope mount. The quirks of this model are that the underlever tap opens toward you, not away from you, and they originally came with two concentric springs, long since replaced. The other is an LP25 break-barrel. They weren’t expensive back in the 60s and 70s (especially if you got one through the catalogue), yet several people have commented…
