Scott began shooting at the age of 12, and now just three years later he admits he’s become a true airgun addict.
MY FIRST STEPS
I started shooting three years ago when I was 12. I went to try it out at a local sports activity centre with my dad. As I really enjoyed it, I asked my dad if we could get an airgun and shoot more regularly. I’m now a member of Cloybank APRC, and get up at 6am each Saturday to go shooting at the club.
MY CURRENT GUN
That first gun was an SMK 501, CO2 rifle. It was great fun, a good little gun to get me started. We now have a great collection, including an HW 100, BSA R-10, Air Arms 500 HFT, Kral NP02, Artemis PP700SA and a Gamo Compact.
My go-to rifle right now it is my AA 500HFT. I only got this recently, and have started to use it at the competitions. I am gradually getting used to the gun and scope, and I really enjoy shooting it. I don’t hunt, but have really got into shooting HFT this year.
I think more people should get enjoyment out of shooting. You won’t always shoot great, but you can always have a good time. It’s the fun you have when you are at the club or a shoot. The other guys at the clubs are all a great bunch of people, and I enjoy being part of the airgunning group.
