Hello everyone. I am new to the airgun community and very much looking forward to heading out to the range in the near future. I did target shooting in cadets and in my first year at U of T, but it has been a long while since I have been able to shoot. I just purchased my first air rifle — a Weihrauch Canada HW 98, .177 Cal., 495 FPS — and I am pretty giddy about it. :rolleyes: Anyway, it is nice to be able to introduce myself to the community. I hope you all are having a great day. Cheers!

Welcome Sopwith! If you are interested in shooting at a 50 foot indoor range all year long, check out the link below for more info. We shoot on Monday nights from 5 to 10 PM. Pretty soon our President of GTAC who goes by the name of "Plinkercases" on this Forum will be on to welcome and provide you with more info.

Actually, I've already been in touch with the GTAC and have just started the process for joining. I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone and to shooting with you!

Regardless, I should have said thanks for the invitation! So, thanks! :D

Thanks Ace!

Heh. I'm a big fan of Snoopy, Woodstock, and Charlie Brown, but especially Snoopy, the WWI fighter ace. :D

Yeah, I've been doing a lot of research the past few weeks about airguns. Many posts on this forum were helpful in finding out about the GTAC and in making my decision on which air rifle to buy. I'm looking forward to learning a lot more about the sport.

Welcome now to CAF!!!

Sorry I missed you last night and glad you made it and it seems you fit right in.

Hopefully my family schedule will change soon so I can get more time with the gang but I just signed up fro another year so there is lots of time to get together. Wont be long before we start to plan a spring outing to some land east of here for a field day!!...see it goes over -10 and I think its spring!!!
