I am a collector of many powder burner non restricted rifles and love pcp air rifles. Always looking to connect and trade with those passionate to keep these hobbies alive. Enjoying all the amazing technologies shared on youtube and social media. Recently I have been investing in greater optics which I can use between various types of shooting. My goal is either thermals or night vision optics this year.

Does anyone here near BC shoot pcps? I am looking for a scuba tank refill adapter or crown lands to shoot.

We have monthly shoots at the Mission Rod & Gun, usually the last Sunday of the month. Just a $5 drop in fee. Lots of guys with PCPs there, including me!

Can your air rifles reach out to 300 meters? Do you have a scuba tank refill adapter for your pcps? I am located in surrey.

No, 300 meters would be a stretch even for a higher powered PCP. The 300 meter range in Mission is not used for these shoots.

Once in a while we'll shoot at 75 yards or more at the upper range. Also, yes, we do have refill adapters for our tanks. Occasionally people use hand pumps as well.

Welcome HWK. Night vision optics are interesting.
Illegal to hunt WILDLIFE between 1hr. after sunset and 1 hour before sun rise.
Would want to check to see if what you are wanting to shoot during that time
is excluded - some species are.
Night vision optics are pretty cool I remember back in 1975 when the Mounted Police
were experimenting with them. They've come a LONG way in a short period of time.
It used to be illegal here to discharge a firearm during those hours noted above, but
that was changed.
Shedule "B" and "C" wildlife rules should be noted - for which & where is a license needed, etc.
