Hi guys

My name is Johnny and I live in Etobicoke on the west side of Toronto. I'm originally from the north of England but moved to Canada three years ago.
I found this forum whilst doing some research on what air rifle to buy. I really like how you guys offer advice to each other without judgement and the general bitchiness that seems to be all over the rest of the internet.

I am actually looking for some air rifle advice but I'll post that in the general forum.

Cheers :D

Welcome Johnny, always good to see new people joining the forum. Since you are seeking advice, I take it that you do not presently own an air rifle/pistol. Well, good news, there is a fun-shoot at Hamilton Angling And Hunters Association. HAHA. - not a joke :D It's located at 1317 Alberton Road in Ancaster. Lots of knowledgeable people (not me) usually attend. You should try and make it. If you don't have a rifle someone will lend you one I'm sure. Get there around 9:30 ish.

Thanks for the welcome.
At the moment I have an Umarex H&K P30 which I do a bit of basement plinking with. I want to do something a bit more challenging so I'm going to get a rifle to do a bit of backyard paper punching with.
I read about the HAHA shoot and I would love to go. I can't this weekend though as I have a stag weekend (not mine). But I will try to make it to the next one. They are not too far away from where I live.

Welcome to the forum.

Backyard paper punching in urban settings is not something we all generally endorse or try. It is a risk and against almost all municipal bylaws....

BUT you can go to HAHA and check out the airgun club we started in Toronto for that very reason

http://www.torontoairgunclub.org/

Whatever you do welcome and lets see your collection as it (inevitably) grows.
