Eddie Jones And The Air Arms S310

This month sees me back in the Welsh hills. I had been invited there for a few days fox shooting by my good friend Allan. With his pest control now back in full swing, it was not an opportunity to miss. We had been out a few times and so far put a pretty good dent in the fox population, I had even managed my furthest shot ever at over 400 yards. This was a memorable trip but it was about to get even better the following day. Barley fields are not very common in the hills so to find…

Highlights of 2016 and Anticipation of the Year Ahead – Paul Hodson

2016 has been a very busy year, both personally and on the shooting front. Starting back in February at the British Shooting Show, I had the first look and try of the Air Arms Galahad. I shot the prototype and to be perfectly honest, it wasn’t very far off being the finished article. It shot beautifully. Claire West from Air Arms told me that I would get a production rifle in late summer for me to use on Air Arms TV. It was at the Midland Game Fair that I picked up the full production rifle with Q-Tec moderator in…

My Top Moments Of 2016 – James Osborne

Looking back at my 2016 FT year it is very easy to focus on the negative aspects, in particular, those moments where my scores left a lot to be desired through no one’s fault other than my own. But looking at 2016 from a glass half full perspective there is plenty to look back on positively and of course, while my scores are important to me there is more to FT. The FT year has a fairly established calendar with 2016 being no exception. However, we have shot some of those familiar events at different venues keeping shoots fresh that…

Pest Control With Eddie Jones & The Air Arms TX200

Since joining Air Arms I have been lucky enough to shoot what are probably some of the best Air rifles in the world. Air Arms have seemed to make a rifle that would suit anyone no matter what discipline you are shooting. Since the PCP came onto the market it is not often you will see a hunter with a spring rifle, this is not because they are inferior to a PCP by a long shot, but when you factor in the recoil and weight when you are shooting all day you will soon see the benefits of using a…

The Air Arms S400 – Andy Watkins Review

I have been shooting my S400 for around a year now and it impresses me each and every time I go shooting. As you will have seen in a previous review I wrote, my journey into air rifle shooting (like many) started with a spring rifle, more specifically the Air Arms TX200HC, this is where the love of the sport grew and I started shooting on a regular basis. After some time I then bought an Air Arms EV2 that I now use in field target competitions across the country. However, I needed a PCP that was light enough to…

Pest Control With Eddie Jones And The Air Arms S410 TDR

Air Arms ambassador, Eddie Jones heads out into the wild on a pest control adventure with the S410 TDR. This month sees me going to a permission that I have had for over 20 years. The area that I chose to shoot for this session was planted pretty much at the same time as when I got the ground. Over the years I have seen the trees getting taller and now some of them reach over 30 feet tall. It was planted with Oak, birch and ash mainly with the odd conifer thrown in the edge to add protection against…

A Night on the Ferals with the Air Arms S410 TDR

Cai Ap-Bryn recently used his S410 TDR to help out a local farmer with a pigeon problem and couldn’t wait to tell us all about it… Last weekend I had the pleasure of tackling problem feral pigeons on a Leicestershire farm, my good friend Mat Cole from Pigeon shooting Leicestershire (www.pigeonshootingleicestershire.co.uk) and myself were tasked with this tricky little number. You see, this was not a straightforward operation; we had a variety of hazards that made this relatively easy job a difficult one. These feral disease carriers were perched nicely within the cowshed but the cows were still present and…

Pigeon is a very under rated meat. Full of flavour and lean in fat making it very healthy as well. Being one of the main stay quarries of the air gunner, it can provide many a tasty meal if you know what to do with it. And it’s pretty easy to get the succulent morsels of meat off these birds. Just follow these 2 easy steps, then have a go at cooking up a delicious and simple meal with the recipe at the end. I only use the breast meat from the pigeons and very rarely pluck the whole bird,…
