New to forum, from Raleigh, NC
« on: September 15, 2017, 04:44:05 PM »
I decided to join the forum, since I always end up here when I search for air gun information online.  The forum has already been a great help, and I know I will continue to learn from the postings here. 

I have a Benjamin Trail NP2 .22, but I am quite new to airguns.  I am hoping to take a squirrel this season with my air gun, but my accuracy is not yet where it needs to be. 

I practice when I can, but I live in the city and try to stay within the laws, so this is challenging.  I live near Raleigh, NC.  I would be interested in local clubs or other opportunities to shoot.

Welcome to GTA!

A couple field target venues not too far from you (depending on what you consider "far").............
http://www.thagc.com/
http://centralcarolinagunclub.wildapricot.org/Field-Target

I live in Rougemont, NC (between Durham and Roxboro) and my trips to field target matches in NC take about an hour to the CCGC in Burlington and about 2 1/2 hours  to the THAGC matches when held at Pleasant Hill, NC or about 1 1/2 hours to the matches held at a farm in Wake county just south of Raleigh. LOL....those times include a stop at a "fast food restaurant" for a breakfast sandwich. ;)
