Hey everyone!

I have been meaning to do an intro for a while now so here it is! When I was in my early teens onwards I did a lot of air gunning and gave it a rest in my mid 20's Now that I've hit my 30's Ive started t get back into it.

I picked up a Weihrauch HW97 in .22 (non pal) with a Hawke Airmax EV 4-12x50 AO scope on it and Im absolutely loving it. Only about 250 shots through it. I have an indoor 10 metre air gun range right near my house which is great (Tir du Soleil).

Thanks everyone!

Thank you very much. Tir du Soleil is good, they have about 6 lanes I think and its a 10 metre range and you are left alone to do your thing. I do wish it was longer but its great for pistols or just getting some bench time with the new rifle to zero a scope and break it in (sandbags available). They also have a 5 metre (I think) carnival style, action shooting gallery which I haven't used. I just like the 10 metre range and its never too busy unless its a weekend.

Can you tell me about the one in lachine? Is it the CRAFM? I would love a longer indoor range to go to Im very curious to know how you like it and when air gunners can shoot there, Ive never been.

Went to 'Tir du Soleil' and as all of my gun's are BB's, I'm out of luck :cry: . Tir du Soleil do accept only pellet gun's and carbine and sub 500fps :cry: , the range is about 9.7 meters and 6 lanes (I think) good for hand gun :D but a bit short for carbine :? . Would be nice for the winter 8) . Got to keep looking :rolleyes: for the winter fun place :?:
