Best post for a while. That an 80?

Various guns mate......I have labelled them.

This is my old 80:

Proper canon, but it dropped a big amount of tackle. 1089 head I got with it, and I couldn't drive back then...

AA S410. I'd say that this is the best gun I've ever owned......silent, accurate and a joy to shoot. Took lots of quarry with this,....

Ha ha , I've no plans for another just yet matey.... :victory:

 

This is my old boy Scooby with a couple of hw100 kills. I got rid of this gun as it was leaking. From the very first time I took it out of the box something wasn't quite right.

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

Well J Darcy "my compliments" with your shooting, including the ducks and geese. 

         I was "Shouted at" for just mentioning that i fancied "pitting my wits/ fieldcraft" after night flight duck with an air rifle  :icon_redface: and was called  "UNSPORTING" !    :censored:

 

                I wonder if you get the same flack as i did eh ?

 

 

 

                                       " i`m waiting"  ?

Brilliant thread and great pictures. Love those memories that those photos bring back to us. My first was a .177 BSA Meteor and now I've moved onto the S410. However, I just bought my lad a very old (but in pristine condition) BSA Meteor for £20 for xmas so hopefully he'll be getting some memories from this.

 

Thanks for posting.

 HA ! HA! I thought so too !  :laugh:

 

               An awful lot of "empty tins, making lots of noise" ( arm chair wanna be`s) in some forums.

              I received quite a few PM`s of encouragement over that topic. "to say the least"
