For anyone who might be interested. i went along tonight a met a few blokes, they were shooting air pistol which they do every monday night, They shoot a bunch of different styles each Saturday which im keen to check out.

Looks like the pistol was setup for a 6 ring hold... so a point of aim hold.

Just between you, me and the internet, i shot 3 targets. The other 2 look like i shot them with a shotgun, but yes it was good fun.

I'm quite keen to get down there on a saturday and try out some other styles too.
I got talking to one guy there who is keen to help me get some NORI's ( notice of "something" instruction) if i bring ammo he'll meet me with pistols and coach me, he's retired and looking for any excuse to get out for a shoot.

I've got to organise to get my fingerprints taken, get a couple of character references and fill out some forms now to start working towards my P plates.
Good times.
