I had my first air rifle for Christmas back in 1982 when I was just 9 years old and have been hooked on the discipline ever since, I have been shooting on and off all my life both on the mainland and on the island. I joined Carisbrooke Rifle and Pistol around 12 years ago when we moved to the Island, we liked the friendly atmosphere of the club along with the fact it had both an outside range which is really fun to shoot with my two kids along with an indoor range for when the weather is to inclement to go outside, for myself it has just been a hobby and mainly target shooting knock downs and paper plinking. Over the years I have had a few air rifles both springers and more recently PCP's which all shoot differently and require different skills to get the best out of them which is what I like about the sport.
I had my first air rifle when I was 7 years old. However, my shooting abilities are limited these days, although with the assistance of my husband I can still manage a few bullseyes on the indoor range!
I have been shooting since 1990 starting with a .22 BSA Mercury.
Has owned HW77K Lazaglide and Rapid 7 .22, currently owns a Rapid Mk2 since 2000 and 2 Ripley Rifles. An AR5 from 1996 and his current AR5s since 2005.
Has shot mainly FT in all that time but has competed in HFT events. Had a break between 2000 and 2005.
Shot the 1998 and 2005 World FT Events in the UK and I have competed in regional and National FT Events. In 2018 I did 7 of 8 Grand Prix in the UK doing some 2000+ miles in that time.
