Well I've been lurking on this site for about 30mins now and have just taken the leap to register.
I like shooting air rifles and have an old BSA meteor in 0.22. It doesnt have much power and it cant shoot a pellet through an empty coke bottle at 12 metres. It might be ok for 10 metre shooting maybe?
Im hoping to learn lots from all the experienced shooters here.

Welcome. If it's any consolation coke bottles are pretty tough. There's lots you can do to tune your gun and bring it back to it's former glory and even better. Just google tuning an air rifle and read. If you like pulling things apart, figuring how they work you will have no problem. Wink

Hello and welcome :), Start a topic in the Technical thread about your BSA problems and im sure we will figure it out for you! :) but sounds like your spring or seal may need replacing :)

Thanks for the welcome.
I think I need to wear safety glasses as well as sometimes it rebounds back off the bottle towards me.
Would it be a good rifle for target field shooting (not sure of the name)?

Sounds perfect for field target and maybe even small game hunting!

I've got an old Ox spring I could sell you if you ever wanted the power for 100meter target shooting...

100meters might be too far. It has only got a 3x9 Gamo type scope on it, would that be ok for target field shooting?

Once the illness sets in you can justify buying one of each type, possibly multiples. Then you can start on new scopes. Your future looks good young master Shaqa.
