Theres a fair number of airgun enthusiasts here in SD county.  The one fella from Valley Center was going to host a shoot at his place in Feb but the weather moved in and rained it out.  Hopefully we can get together at least once this spring as nothing beats putting names to faces.  I'm in Santee myself but my backyard is very limited to range and noise.

Hi there, new member in the area, Scripps Ranch.

I'm actually in the process of researching the sport and hoping to be able to reach out to some locals for advice and info.

Hi there, new member in the area, Scripps Ranch.

Hi Deac, I'm in Santee what aspect of the sport is interesting to you?  One aspect I like about airguns, even in my 7 yard hallway in the house I can find a challenge to shoot (IZH 61 or Pistol).  Where and what you intend to shoot will dictate where you start, that said in the vast majority of cases the last place to buy your first gun will be local stores. 

Like golf this sport is intertwined with the hardware closely.  It's important to have a gun you can shoot with reliable results at the start to avoid discouragement.  Let us know what you want to start with as a target and the envelope (Noise and distance) to get a feel.

Thanks for the welcome and encouragement Huklbery.

I'm currently looking at PCP rifles. Specifically I'm considering the Marauder .25 or the Sam Yang Recluse.

I've spoken to the guys at P2K range and they have no problem with either of the rifles at thier range as long as it's pellets, not BBs. So I would have a local place to shoot. A bonus to the area are all the dive shops so I can rent a scuba tank filled for 10-15 a day making air a lot easier than a pump or the expense of a HPA tank. :)

Outside if that I do go out offroading and camping in the deserts, Anza Borrego, Joshua Tree, etc. so there are opportunities for me to take a rifle along and a target.

I doubt I'll ever get into the hunt but I wouldn't rule it out completely.

My main concern is purchasing a rifle online which seems to be my only option really, without having seen or held it, let alone shooting to even know if this is something I really want to invest in.

Well if you want to drop by in Santee PM me, I can let you shoot my .25 Marauder, limited yardage but you can at least get a feel of it.  I have a Hatsan At44PA in .25 but its a bit loud for the backyard.

I just bought a air rifle that will arrive tomorrow. Didnt know about the laws, didnt expect it to be so restricted.

 I am not into any type of shooting yet, hoping to do some club level competition. Getting back to it after several decades. Used to shoot down lizards off the walls as a kid.
Some casual outdoors gathering would be nice, targets and such. I know Temecula, dont mind travelling.
