Excuse the quality.An old piccy taken many, many years ago of the hw80, a proper beast of a gun and my first .177.

This image was taken in Scotland, in the late 80's, long before I'd heard of PCP's......

 

The stoats were taken in a rockpile, it is the only stoat I've ever shot.

This was my first taste of a PCP. I bought the AA S300 and had a good day with it.....

This bag was from that first day out....

Hw95.....This rifle was brand fire new, one of the first in the Uk and I had high aspirations for it. However the springs supplied were bad and were brittle. Didn't do the internals much good. Still managed a bag full of tackle in the short time I had it.....

A woodcock with the Fn12...how I spotted it in the leaves I will never know. Very, very lucky. I'd never shoot one these days, but this photo was taken 18 years ago.....where do the years go?

Probably one of my favourite piccys. This was was taken about 17 years ago as I tried to whack a few maggies in the local roost. I got a few with the Fn12, but they could see me due to the snow on the floor.......great memories from that roost. We first found that maggie roost about 1989 when we stumbled upon it by accident. We shot 11 that night. Today the silver birch have grown higher and the roost isn't like it once was but there's still the odd one about.

A bit of duck flighting with the airgun. Shot a nice cock teal and a hen mallard.

Loving the springers. That 80 looks like a tank. Shame about the 95, hearing about a lot of that kind of thing from the hw stable. Hope they learn from it soon!
