  1. Apologies if I’ve missed the obvious but is it 12g?
  2. Apologies sent you PM
  3. Hi where about in Barnsley are you? I work in Dinnington
  4. I was thinking of buying one to mount on my office wall
  5. Look at this on eBay……https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Handmade-Wooden-Toy-Dry-Shooting-Practice-Gun-clay-pigeon-Shotgun-Styling-/223324224772?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  6. I will do….splatter targets, sounds interesting
  7. Funny you should say that…I’m going some point through the week
  8. Thanks for everyone’s advice, I am on the east side of Nottingham. Will mostly be using it for lamping at night (rabbits/rats) but obviously need to practice on the range through the day first though. Now Christmas is out the way I can get my head back in to it. Will hold fire with the new scope for now then until I get some more practice. Will have a good play around with it. I work near Rotherham and it’s a shame the South Yorkshire shooting club has shut down as they had a 30m indoor range
  9. Hi yes When I look at a 30 yd target on 9x the image and the cross hairs both clear BUT the target is very small so would appear to be clear. When adjusting the eye piece though you can make the image bigger and in turn even more clear as you can see more detail but the cross hairs then become blurred
  10. Thank you, yes head alignment is ok as mentioned the last group was 5p size at 30m although it’s almost shooting blind. I want to be able to see exactly where it’s hitting and then be able to zoom in on that particular hole (ideally). I may just be expecting too much
  11. Hi yes please I’m not 100% sure on what you mean…or would I be better just getting a new scope?
  12. Ok brilliant. It was a black target I was shooting at. Ref eye test I only had one a few weeks since so i can rule that one out. I was expecting to be able to zoom in on the holes that were been made so, very much like the spotting scope idea. Maybe I was expecting too much from the scope on the gun
  13. Hi I have a used BSA Ultra SE 177, BSA essential 3-9x40 scope using airarms field pellets. I notice I am getting some inconsistent groups at 30m. Last group shot was 10 pellets in a 5p size group (was happy with that) but this was hard going seeing exactly where I was aiming/hitting. Wasnt until I collected the target afterwards that I realised this was a tight group. The groups before this were all over the place though. Doesn’t help that I have a terrible job seeing exactly where I am hitting even with magnification on scope turned up to 9. Was thinking of getting the Hawke fast mount 4-16x50 in the hope this would help me see the pellet impact at 30m. Tried shooting at 40m with current scope but didn't got a clue where the pellet was hitting as I just couldn’t see the impact let alone trying to focus on something at that distance. Any advice would be welcomed
  14. I bought the T50 which is very powerful but also extremely heavy. I also obtained a similar unbranded one off a friend which is just as powerful but a lot lighter. Ones red and ones green though so it must look like I’m having a disco when I’m out. The light one is gun mounted and the other a have in my hand when the guns over my shoulder
  15. Hi nothing as of yet. Other than raising the breach I don’t think I can do a great deal so just continuing to use the shroud which to be fair there isn’t anything wrong with it I’m just not a huge fan of how it looks
