Hey everyone. I just bought a new Benjamin Jim Shokey np2. My first airgun in 30 years. (yeh I'm old) I've only put about 100 rounds through it so far but having a lot of fun. I'll be keeping mine legal (495fps) I like it somewhat quiet for the back yard in town. I don't have my pal either. But anyway just wanted to say Hi. Anyone else from Hanover Ontario?

Thanks mycrosman. I just checked with my local bylaw officer and found out I can't target practice in my backyard. Bummer. I guess I'll have to join a gun club.

I think its that way all across Ontario....no backyard shooting...they're probably places you can shoot outdoors somewhere in your area...people go hunting in every part of Ontario....hopefully you won't have to drive too far.
Its nice here in Northwestern Ontario....no shortage of shooting areas....

Yeah hopefully I can find someone in my area who can advise a good spot. Unfortunately I moved a year ago. I used to live 10 minutes from my brother who is a farmer but now I live over an hour away.

Welcome to the forum Dan! Don't worry about what others think when you shoot your airguns at your nearest club or range. I shoot my air rifles, pistols, and revolvers amongst the powderburning, high calibre shooters at my club. They can laugh all they want as the ultimate goal is to shoot holes on paper down range. The major advantages to airguns are availability, convenience, less noise, and lower costs. My powderburners have taken a backseat to airguns and I find myself yearning to get into field target or 10m shooting down the road.

Many of the small bore shooters at my club, are also air rifle shooters. ON the small bore range, you are likely to see several shooting .22 RF and beside them on another bench, an air rifle enthusiast testing pellet accuracy form 10 to 100 meters.

Indoors, is air rifle only now, up to 25 meters.

Thanks for the comments. I'm gonna look into my local club. In my basement is not an option. I have a very skittish dog and my wife would not be happy. Happy Wife Happy Life.
