Hi Everyone.

Brand new to the community.

I'm a northerner from Prince George, currently living the lower mainland life. When I was a kid and living up in PG, my family took me shooting and hunting ocassionally and it's when and where I found my love for firearms and appreciation for nature.

I'm a software engineer by profession so i was always destined for the Concrete Jungle that was Vancouver. And I did get there. I started my family there. And after nearly 10 years of being stuck in traffic, wanding around big malls filled with nothing interesting, fighting for parking spots everywhere, and staring at really interesting buildings but not being allowed to really do anything beyond that with them... I needed out. Got too soul-less. So now I live in a more rural area of the LML.

Anyways. While out here I finally decided to apply for my PAL. Passed the course and now I simply wait for it. However, something interesting happened.

I took my oldest daughter (8) to PlayLand recently, and there they had a target shooting gallery with the rifles that shot blasts of light to activate the targets. I got her to try it out, and she loved the ever loving heck out of it.

So it got me thinking about getting her into shooting, and to start her off with plinking with airguns. I asked her if she was into the idea and she said yes. And im not gonna lie, I want to do some plinking while I wait for the PAL to finally arrive whenver the hell that that'll happen :lol: (and of course, afterwards too). And that's why I'm here. To find out where we can go to plink, what we should plink with, and have fun doing so while teaching her about gun safety and proper handling.

Hi everyone!
