50+ years
Dad started me off with a Webley Junior pistol, 1958, soon followed by a Meteor rifle then an Airsporter. Lost count of the number of guns between then and an HW35E in circa 1977?
First PCP was an AA TM100,about 1982, don't think I've had a more accurate rifle since.
Did my first HFT clearance recently, there's hope for you all.

I started with a webley when I was 13.. I'm 57 now so it's around 44 years on and off did a stint in HM Forces where I shot everything they had from 9mm Browning to 120mm Wombat and all in between of em all I would say the venerable SLR was me deep back into shooting air rifles about 5 years ago and it's been that way ever since!!
