In this month’s edition of Airgun Shooter, we finally see much-needed rainfall after a long dry spell, which brought a flush of fresh green growth across the countryside, so Mat Manning heads out stalking to target rabbits as they tuck into the new shoots.

It’s also the time of year when the evenings are drawing in, and Mat offers some tips to keep your nocturnal hunting on track as the peak night shooting season approaches.

Mike Morton’s in pistol mode this issue, having thumbed through a Small Arms Training manual from the war years, then replicating the drills and marksmanship techniques with some modern CO2 guns.

Mat manages to get his hands on the regulated Sniper HR variant of Brocock’s acclaimed Compatto, and finds that it is possible to make a great gun even better, while Mike takes a look at the R-10 TH – a new version that celebrates the 10th anniversary of BSA’s flagship rifle.

Richard Saunders heads to the plinking range to try out some reactive targets that both test your marksmanship and provide a gratifying reward for a successful hit.

Meanwhile, Roger Lait’s been getting inspired, and just a little bit excited, by the thought of shooting airgun slugs rather than pellets, and sets off on a mission to find the perfect long-range projectile.

Target shooter Andy McLachlan recalls the chronoscope of yesteryear – a metal dustbin – and urges shooters to raise their game and make use of more modern specialist equipment and tuning services.

All this is capped off with our Airgun Answers section, where we tackle your shooting-related queries about resting a springer on a range bag, different types of binoculars and picking up a bargain on a budget.
