I know Kev, but who can get the info out on how the Forensic Science Service actually test airguns? It's a moot point in the truest sense of the word. In my opinion, they are the keymasters to the interpretetion of capable and thus testing. Yet we're in the dark. I guess it depends on where you draw your own line to suit your own comfort...

For me, a test pellet opens up just as much of the can of worms as it closes... but if it's in the rules, it's in the rules... you wanna play, you abide by them. It's totally understandable that organisations want to protect their sport...
