    Default Girl needs help :-)

    Hi everyone.
    I am a 13 year old girl (supervised by DAD) that just joined the shooting team at my high school. I have always enjoyed shooting bottle caps from the fence but found new passion for this sport. I have a Gamo high power air rifle, better than my Dad's but I am not allowed to use it. I read the posts about the HW30 rifles and want to know if anyone can point my Dad in the right direcon to buy one.
    Thank you

    This is Dad
    Gentlemen if you could afford me the information on where to purchase the best allowable rifle for the application I would highly appreciate it. I am glad that my Kid wants to pursue this sport, but for beginners and absolute novices this is quite a task.

    Kindest regards

    Howzit,

    You very lucky to have your Dad support you. My dad did and we had a blast. Make sure your dad gets his own rifle or he will steal yours
    Chat to mmp on the forum. He does lots with school shooting.

    Good Afternoon Everyone
    This is DAD.
    My Daughter did very well last year and it sure was a roller coaster of new time schedules, driving up and down and up again but indeed a blast. I sure enjoy the activities that goes with the whole package. I have even volunteered my time to assist in Field Marshall (Appy)

    My kid participated this weekend at Zanandi (hartebeespoort) Trials and did not disappoint. She has now stepped into the LION's den WRT Sporter shooting. This category just seems to be four times as busy as springer category. Ultimately she ended in 17th place. not to bad for a brand new category and Rifle.

    I need assistance again and want to ask the forum to help. I wanted to purchase a CZ 200 for my Kid but was told that if she progresses as fast as she had done with the Springer she would possibly move up to precision very fast. The advice was to rather think of buying a rifle like the MPR that can be custom made for this category. So that is what I did. I bought a very PINK CTR from a gentlemen that used it as a field target rifle.

    I took the Rifle and specked it to the 10 meter requirements and it works very well, like I said she came seventeenth this weekend at Zanandi. The help I need is as follows, Where can I purchase an extra gas chamber / cylinder for the rifle ?. The next Question is where can I learn on how to set the trigger and maintenance on the rifle.

    I then want to thank everyone that helped in the past, My Kid and I wanted o purchase a peepsight and was given a set for free. We asked for information on a good springer and bought one for a great price. I will be sure to return these goodness the day my kid gives up the sport, ultimately I just want to thank everyone for the support, Strangers and newly acquired friends alike :-)

    I think it would be best to ask Ralph Badenhorst himself about parts and the like for the CTR.
