Hey all looking to get into Clay shooting after really enjoying and done well at a Game Fair which i got such a buzz! So im after some advice. I know you need a licence and a cabinet that needs to be bolted to the walls or floor but the a few other things i would like to ask:
What gun is good for a beginner? (nothing to over prized and i dont mind second hand)
What Cartridges are people using?
And any clubs i can join in Cheshire ??
And just any advice people can give me ??
Much appreciated Jay

If you are looking for a well priced first gun, you cant go far wrong with a Baikal, i had one for quite a while and never had a problem with it. :thumbs:
as for cartridges, depending on your size you ma want to start shooting 21 gram cartridge, i don't personally use them because i don't find them powerful enough, but many beginners struggle with the recoil of heavy loads.
