My name is John, and I'm new to air guns. This forum turned up as I was researching the particulars of the hobby in Canada, and people here seemed pretty helpful, so I signed on. I look forward to meeting my fellow enthusiasts!

My main interest is plinking and target shooting, at least for now, so I recently picked up a Stoeger X5 with open sights to get started. I have a feeling it will be the first of several.

I have a fairly eclectic collection of interests: my other hobbies include nature photography, astronomy, fishing and drawing.

Thanks!

Welcome! Keep an eye out for shoots coming up. The AIRFT holds informal shoots throughout the year. They are usually held at The Calgary Rifle and Pistol Club during the winter and Didsbury or Weekend Warriors during the summer. Send me a Pm if you want to be notified of when the next shoot is.

Welcome to the addiction! Your "feeling" is probably correct ... come back and update this thread in a years time.
As Castle02 says ... attending the AIRFT shoots will introduce you to a lot of local members and offer an opportunity to shoot some really nice guns.
Welcome aboard.

Welcome aboard, John.
I can only X2 the comment about your "feelings" being standard procedure in this hobby. But seriously, get ready for it! :)

In the meantime. I can also X2 checking out AIRFT. I live in Edmonton, and I make a point of attending every get-together I can. Great bunch of guys, and several of the members are top contributors to this forum. We're waiting to hear from peterdulux for open dates for the next January shoot, so a PM to him (Peter), castle02 (Rich) or rocker45 (Brian) will connect you with the group.

PS. we'd appreciate it if you would enter Calgary in the location slot in your profile. It adds your location to your forum posts so we old farts can remember your domain area. Thanks.
