Hi all, Ian here and just joined and also got my first airgun (since I was 14). Now to learn how to use it. Had firearms for some time but new to the modern air rifle so looking forward to new adventures on the bunny trail.

Hiya Pauly5

Hmm, I can take a pic of the paddock, I can take a pic of the bunny; not really set up for slo-mo or shoot n go.

Thanks for the welcome tho....

have been knocking the rabbits with .22LR but some areas are close to other buildings/houses etc hence the foray into air rifle. Plus I like shooting anyhoo.

Hi Nunga,

a Falcon F*19 from Magair (very helpful).

Awfully tempted by all the other furniture but for a first taste, I went cheap (ish).

Nothing wrong with a falcon mate, I've had some success using one, and so have some other people I know.
Very easy to be very accurate with that's for sure :)

That should see you right. And yes Alex (Magair) is a top bloke he will go out of his way to help.
