Greetings,

I am not new to shooting but new to air gunning. Have my first rifle and hope to have a lot of fun.

Curious to know if there are many other Island shooters? I myself am right in downtown Victoria.

Cheers!

I love the Kelowna area my step brother just moved out to Salmon Arm. I myself may end up in Abbotsford in the next few years. :)

I am right down on Humboldt, I could take shots at the Empress if I was on the other side of the building. :)

Greetings ejackyou

Thanks, I think I picked the name up from my Dad who was a Canucks fan. I think he actually picked it up from one of those sports new shows which he watched with religious zeal. :) Nice to know there is another Victorian out there!

I just got my first, a Umarex Browning Leverage in .177.

Cheers!

Welcome to the forum,


I have a Browning 177 underleaver as well. What is the rated FPs of yours?
Mine is rated at 495 but it Cronys 640 FPs.
I find it very accurate with the right pellet. I'm shooting 8.3 domes.

I have the one rates for 495. I can't say what it's actually shooting though. I have a small pile of pellets I'm sampling but so far it likes RWS Super domes and a RWS Wad cutter Meisterkugeln both in the 8 grain range. I have ordered some JSB's domed 8.4's I think because I've read a few times that is what their guns like too.

I am just coming up through the 800 round range (and was told it takes about a thousand to break in) and am finding the groups getting tighter and more consistant. My only real gripe is that it's a long heavy beast! :)

Cheers!

The hotel is one of the few targets I'm sure I can actually hit! :)

I hope to start networking with island shooters mostly because I'm finding it hard to find places to shoot and while shooting indoors is interesting I'd like to open the range up from 20 feet.. without having to actually join a range!

Thanks!!
