Hey guys!

Been shooting the powder burners for many years now. Never really looked into air gunning to much but with a small kid and new house, time and money are a premium. So air gunning is a way to keep shooting as much as possable. I have to say the air guns have come along way! So far i have a Beretta PX4...more to follow i'm sure. My plan at the moment is to setup a little indoor range with lots or reactive targets. A friend of mine is getting rid of a whole bunch of carpet so i plan to hang it from the cieling in my unfinished basement, back sides and top, multiple layers, to basically make a giant (about 4' wide x 4' deep) pellet trap. Plan is to make lots of reactive targets. I'll keep you posted. Look forward to chatting and meeting you all.

Thanks!
Mark...

I have only been in Canada 11 years, but don't understand the reference to the town "Hammer?"

Welcome aboard friend!

Welcome Mark. It sounds like your indoor range will be a lot of fun when you get it finished. Hey Mike... I am still enjoying your old Alecto .22 did a lot of plinking with it this summer.
