Started shooting my Dads Airsporter Mk1 when I was 14 in 1978 been shooting air rifles and shotguns ever since but my real love is air rifles.
Thats 33 years and I still have my Dads Airsporter which is now a family heirloom especially as he died last summer.Luckily my eldest daughter now 23 shoots and has done since being 8 years old(thats 15 years for her). She was rolling bunnies over at 45 yards at 8 years old with her little Titan MPT.
