Just want to get an idea of how well the Edge does in 3 position competitive shooting. I have only been able to find a couple of reviews, and they all seem slanted to the very high end guns, but most of those are not legal for Camp Perry, or NRA Air matches due to being over the price limit. So how well does the Edge do in competition? I’m just starting to coach a 4-H youth shooting group, and we will have the Daisies for the moment, but, I may be able to get a couple of AF Edges next year through our grant, not to mention if they do very well, I might just pick one up, and loan it to the best shooters for matches. My other choice is the AA T200 as it comes in right at the max price point.
Thanks for any feed back,
I have one, but though I have not competed with it, I can reassure you that it is quite a shooter. It is easy to fill with a hand pump and will get over 100 shots per fill. It can be adjusted to fit about anyone.
Go to targettalk.org and you should find several youth shooting coaches who will be very happy to help you with this and any other questions you have.
I’m way over near Richmond, out in Chesterfield county. Working on getting a 4-H youth shooting Education program up and running. Did pick up one of the used Avanti 853’s with the Monte Carlo stock, cleaned it up, resealed it, and re-finished the stock for my daughter. OK, I’ll use it too until I get something nicer, but it now looks like a new gun.
Maybe if your over my way, give me a yell. If you participate in any of the 4-H shooting programs, maybe I’ll run into you at one of the state, or local shoots.
Good deal, just drop me a note so I know when to look for you. Our new club should be up and running around April.
P.S. I may take my daughter to the Holiday Lake shoot, if nothing else just to watch. She might be ready to compete for the first time by then, but currently our range is outside, and it’s getting cooler every day.
