Hello from darkest lincolnshire
Hello from sunny Lincolnshire!
I've recently re-arrived on the airgun scene - I used to be into from about 15-16 years of age, acquired an air pistol (underlever Gamo) and would regularly go ratting as well as lamping for rabbits (would borrow my friends air rifle - could never afford one and my parents wouldn't buy me one!). I got rid of most of my stuff about 10 years ago, settled down with the missus, bought a house, but got a nice pleasant surprise in the pay packet this month, so I bought a Weihrauch HW97K in .177 (much to my mates displeasure - he wanted me to get something british and .22... like a BSA Meteor MK7.... I'm sure you get the irony) with a Nikko Stirling 3-9X40 scope and some JSB Exacts
Spent last sunday down the range, putting a few pellets through it and bedding it in, love the accuracy, it's everything I expected once I started to get myself re-acquainted with the techniques. The bug's really bitten since then, and as getting out and bagging a few rabbits is the goal, I got some cheap camo from mil-surplus and some other essentials so I can get out there - everywhere I go now I'm noting where the rabbits are and making a mental note to go and visit a few farms, hoping to get some permissions in the near future after I'm confident I can reliably hit my targets. Seriously tempted to V-glide it after trying out an Air Arms Pro-sport, the bug's caught me good....
