If anyone is interested in purchasing a new toy, there will be an AirArms S400, & an AirArms S410 both out there for viewing/trial 
These are two exceptionally accurate and hard hitting .22 rifles, and will be negotiable on price

I'm hoping to have the TX out in its new stock for a test run as well :)

Bit of a foggy start to a Waikato day, with 45ish yards visibility on the course, good thing it wasn't a big one and only really set out to give people a taste of FT.
Once that fog burnt off tho, it was blue skies and the occasional 0-5mph breeze , very nice.
A bench for pistols at one end, with sillouhette targets, some paper targets at the other, and a short 25 target FT course in the middle with ranges from 10-55 yards, and some nice easy beginner lanes (40mm kz's between 15-25y)
A couple families turned up braving the fog, then before you knew it there was another 20 people.
Some people surprised at what airguns were capable of, others surprised at how much natural talent their kids showed when handed a decent and accurate rifle.
Thanks to Ian for supplying the sausages, definitely plenty to go around, and they seemed to go down a treat with everyone there.
All in all, a successful day, with a lot of interest generated. Good for the club, and good for the sport.

Thanks also to Alex, Ian (and kids), and warren for help dismantling the course, there was nearly a day setting it up, and 1-1 1/2 hours to pack it down. The help is always appreciated and makes the day what it is.
