I come from Nottinghamshire and am relatively new to air guns.
I started shooting at a tender age with small-bore .22 rifles and full-bore .303.
In those days I had good eyesight and was reasonably proficient on the range; and have the medals and trophies to prove it.
Gave up my Lee Enfield .303 when the Chief Constable decided that I no longer needed it - shame, it would be worth a bob or two today.
Now have a small collection of rifles and pistols, many of the pistols being replicas of firearms. I have a 6 metre range in my garage and spend my time target shooting.
