Hello

I just got a Diana 54 and I am looking forward to August 14th. Never done FT before so I am also looking for some friendly guidance once I get there. I have been through regulations so I think I am good on that topic?
I take criticism well and I do have a sense of humor (so I have been told).
Please contact me if you feel like helping a rookie. I am in GTA

Thanks

well you did good on your first step which was choosing a rifle.. The 54 is a real beauty and it's a springer 8) As for shooting technique, just practise.. I'm sure you'll learn a bunch of tips from the experienced guys when attending the matches. Talk to Windbag(Bill) if he's there, he has a 54 and he knows a thing or two about shooting and setting them up, pellet choice etc.

The Port matches take place at a Conservation Club that allows us to hold matches there. Other than matches, the club is not open to public shooting. Members can use the grounds as long as it does not interfere with a club activity.

For the Toronto and surrounding areas, the Waterdown Club would seem like a good choice for outdoor shooting. If I was in the area, I would join the Burlington Club as they have a 50+ yard INDOOR range, which is awesome for sighting in a gun and checking your scope chart.

Tim do they still shoot trap at the port club? I Never hear anybody talking about that club anywhere.. I wouldn't mind coming out for a few rounds of trap.. I have my club just down my road that I can shoot at but a change of scenery isn't bad.. I was working right across the street from your place last week, I was going to walk over and shoot the litter with you for a few mins but you had vanished from the front..

Check here Pete.

http://www.pcdcc.com/

Click on "Shooting Sports"

They shoot the second and fourth Sundays of the month. All the details are in the ad on the website.

You should have popped over. I do not stay in one place very long; I like to keep busy.
