I'm certainly not an expert on everything but if you are keen on Field target you should try and hook up with one of the clubs and you will get to see what you like and even try other guns.
There's a club in W(h)anganui and one in Wellington. Wgtn range is on hold at the moment and there's a world champ competition taking place in September in Wellington, so plenty of opportunity to see some good gear and skills.
Do plenty of reading about rifles and maybe consider getting your FAL.

There are spring powered and pcp (pre charged pneumatic - air tank) to choose from.
Names such as Weirauch, Air arms, Styer, Walther, Daystate, FX and more. Check out Magair, Youngs air gun and others but that should keep you glued to the screen for a while.

Enjoy.

Good to see the masses are awake and switched on huh :)

Don't try and up sell him pauly, the BSA is probably so underpowered it'd be fine for 12ft/lb, you're just worried that he'd beat you with a 4x32 scope lol

Do you think a 4x32 scope is ok for target field shooting? I was thinking about getting a powerful scope something like a 12x or 16x

I can tell he has the skill to use a 12ft pound and not need excess power to hide behind. Tongue

I think that if you can knock over targets whatever you are using, it means it works. The higher powered scopes, 24x, 32x, 40x plus are used because they have a focus knob that is used for range finding to know how far away the target is.
I describe field target it as sniper golf.

Why do you need to find the range? I thought all targets are 25 meters

The targets are set from 8 to 50 metre or yards, some elevated.

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 :)

You should be able to hit 50 m with it. maybe explore Nungas suggestion, there's a lot of knowledge held by the guys on the forum.

I wouldnt worry about big scopes and stuff. What you really need is a big floppy hat with a ton of badges on it. Get one of those and you cant go wrong!
