The new issue of Airgun Shooter magazine is out now, and it’s packed full of advice and tips to up your shooting game. Plus, you could win a Ridgeline Turbulence smock worth £110!
Although some shooters regard rabbit control as a late summer and autumn pursuit, warmer weather can bring a huge increase in pest numbers, so Mat Manning’s been out on a roving shoot to catch up with the bunnies on one of his grassland permissions.
Shooting is one of the most enjoyable sports around, and it’s also one of the safest. Mike Morton offers some tips to ensure it stays that way, focusing on the golden rules as well as some safety tips specific to hunting in the field and shooting on the range.
Target shooter Andy McLachlan has set his sights on the SWFA SS 10×42 – a telescopic sight that ticks all the boxes for an HFT competitor who might be looking for their first upgrade into a ‘proper’ target-orientated scope.
If you’re struggling to land a hunting permission you might be pleased to hear there’s an easier way – buy your own wood! Richard Saunders runs through what’s involved in landing your very own hunting haven.
Richard’s also been testing four bullpups. They may be small in stature, but make no mistake, bullpups are every bit as capable as regular-sized rifles, and with full-length barrels, there’s no compromise in terms of accuracy and power.
Top-end airguns cost serious money – the sort of outlay that many shooters would probably struggle to justify. But if you are fortunate enough to have enough cash in the bank, you might want to consider the Daystate Wolverine R – and Mat explains why.
Meanwhile, are you heading straight for an HW 77 or 97 if you want a Weihrauch underlever? Mike offers you a third option with the HW 57, a rifle that’s significantly cheaper and lighter than its big brothers.
All this is capped off with our Airgun Answers section, where we tackle your shooting-related problems by offering some pointers on everything from thumb-up holds and threadlock.
