Airgun shooting is one of the most popular shooting sports in the UK. Both professional and amateur pest controllers commonly use airguns, mainly due to their quiet operation and the low cost of ammunition. Airguns are also used for both formal and recreational target shooting. The targets range from simple ‘bullseye’ paper targets in indoor ranges, to more complex ‘field targets’ that are set out in woodland and represent typical airgun quarry. The UK boasts several world and European champions in almost all airgun target disciplines. Airgun shooting is also the perfect introduction for young people into the sport of shooting, where all of the basic principles- including safety, can be taught.
