I thought these gunshop idiots were a dying breed. Probably had a .22 he couldn't shift. "Wouldn't go far"!
Only needs to go 55 yards!
When I bought my LGU my local shop (Krank's in Pudsey) told me that these days .177 outsells .22 by a large margin (at least for their customers). Given the popularity of outdoor target sports it isn't hard to believe.
