we started a youth air rifle program at my gun club. 

Well done dood.

I'm always please to hear about people actively promoting airgun use, so congratulations and salutations.......ohhh, and a bunch of applaud points too. ;)

Thanks.  I have to admit, it was more work and trouble than I thought, and my buddy did more than his share.  But that last shoot we had made it all worthwhile.  We held a mini match, standing and prone only.   The kids finished within 19 points of each other.   The winner was a boy who came from nowhere.  Second, by only one point, was a girl who had never shot any type of gun before we started.  We had three ties we had to settle, one of which went down to the third tiebreaker.  Kids we couldn't tell if they were really interested were challenging scores. 
It was good to see.  It made my week.

I'm just checking in real quick.  I haven't been on here in weeks or months. 
Lots going on.
We just moved.  Let me warn you- Moving is hard.  I know you know that, but it cannot be stressed too much.

We hired a moving company to move us, since I have a ruined back.  When moving day came, they canceled on us.
I had to rush out, rent a truck, and hire some...well...people I wouldn't have hired otherwise.

I should add here that I am much more active in firearms than airguns.  I load my ammunition.  I cast bullets.
I have lead saved up.
Lead is heavy.  I know you know that, but it cannot be stressed enough.  Moving is harder with lead.

The good news is the new house has a big basement. It is 56 feet long. If I weren't still recovering from the move, I'd have my airgun range built already.  I could shoot there now, since all I need is light and a pellet trap, and they are down there, but I want to pretty it up a bit.

Not much to report on new airgun purchases. I bought a Benjamin Marauder a few months ago.  That was a much more useful purchase when I had a fair amount of land and woods to shoot on.  Now I'm probably limited to the basement.  I bought a Daisy 717 pistol for the new place.  I had pistols, and better ones, but I had an excuse so I bought one.

Off to bed to rest the aching back. 

Looking forward to talking with you guys more.

I don't know.  I'm in the USA too, so don't know if I could help.

Just as an idiotic aside, my Dad used to work in a power station with a guy called Barry from Barry, the irony being he had moved to Barry in Cardiff because it was closer to the power station where he worked. :o
