UK Air Gun Basics – Video Series

UK Air Gun Basics

A free video tutorial series

We have teamed up with North Wales air gun retailer Tony Dobson to produce a series of free air rifle tutorial videos for the UK.
This series goes from the very basics of buying your first air rifle to target shooting, hunting and fieldcraft and game preparation.

We do not run air rifle hunting courses, but we do run Foraging and Wild Food Courses every year that cover edible wild plant identification and preparation, plus the laws around foraging and wild food in the UK.

This series was made possible with the kind support of TonysCamo.co.uk.

For the second episode we are back in the shop with Tony going through the basics of setting up an air rifle with a scope, moderator and some tips on caring for your rifle, lubricants and other maintenance.

It’s important to remember:

  • Keeping the scope level in relation to the rifle is absolutely crucial
  • Any oiling or lubrication should be done sparingly, if at all. Follow all manufacturers notes on when and where to lubricate any parts of an air rifle
