The next question was "When did I last clean the barrel" which I replied” I hadn’t”.
Neil then gave me my first lesson in barrel cleaning, the crap that came out on the first pull through was incredible, we did two more then back to the range.
After the next few shots at the 30 yarder a wry smile came across Neil’s face and said he was now getting pellet on pellet and at 55yard was getting groups smaller than his thumb nail.
Needless to say I now have all the cleaning kit ordered and on its way.

Well that's the EV2 for you!

life's too short to give a
