Buying your first air rifle

Recommended Posts


I would encourage all newbies to sit and read this from top to bottom, saves the regulars from answering the same questions everyday :thumbs: you should get detailed basics from this and know what rifle and set up will suit you.

 

Excellent darryl, top bit of info :thumbs:

MODS.

This should definately be pinned.

 

A lot of thought and care has gone into presenting a lot of information as readably understandable as possible for the most inexperienced newcomer looking for his/her first gun.

 

Darryl you've done a fantastic job mate. Well done.

Well Done Darryl,

 

Really well thought out and will help out Newbies and Old Hands returning to Airgun Shooting, Especially the Section that keeps cropping up on here all the time i.e.

the Calibre Conundrum of which is best .177 v .22 or the outsider Cals .20 & .25.

Cheers Darry, I've litterally just bought my first air rifle after years of wanting one. I've shot plenty of others in the past but never had the opportunity to shoot somewhere on a regular basis.

 

I think that had I of seen this guide before going to my local shop I'd probably have saved the guy a lot of questions lol

 

The one thing that did surprise me though froom your guide was where you said that a gun stored in a slip will rust! Is this true and if so, why? I'm guessing you from putting it away damp after shooting and not drying out fully but wanna check.

 

Thanks again

Hi Nick

 

Cheers mate!

You hit the nail on the head. Not storing it in the gunslip allows the air to circulate round it instead of festering in an enclosed space. However dont take it for gospel. A lot if people store theirs in a gunslip with no problems. So as long as its dried and oiled properly after use you shouldn't have any problems.
