Hey, I'm Steve and I just moved to Welly from Sydney. Was stoked to find out you don't need a firearms licence to buy air rifles here and I was lucky enough to be able to rent a place with a large, enclosed backyard safe to shoot in. I picked up a Gamo Varmint recently and I've been having fun getting used to it. I'm planning on getting my firearms licence in the next few weeks as well and expanding my collection but I'm really liking my first ever air rifle at the moment.

Thought I'd join in case I need any tips or whatever. Cheers.

Hi Steve, welcome. Sounds like a nice setup having somewhere to shoot. Feel free to checkout Wellington airgunner. Regular shoots at the Wainui indoor range, and also field target or sporter target the next time we have a shoot at the other ranges.

Hi Steve,
Welcome to NZ. If that's you first air rifle you might want to google the "Artillery hold" to get the best accuracy.

Cheers

Cheers. Yeah the first day I had it out I was holding it wrong. Figured my shots were off cos I was still breaking it in and getting used to it. Did a little reading that night and yeah, accuracy is much improved with that hold.
