Started at 7 with a little original break barrel .177 which i still own now. am now 34 and still going.

Was trying to think of all the rifles i have owned over the years the other day, will try to list them now.

Original 177 this was ancient when i got it.

Milbro .22 break barrel

Bsa meteor .22

Mk 2 Airsporter .22

Air arms jackel .22

air arms firepower .22 only sold this in june

cf 16 underlever .22 cant remember the make

Theoben hw90tb .22

Theoben rapid 7 .22

Titan mpt .22 tiny little thumbhole pcp

Airsporter stutzen .22

Air arms tx200 hc .22

Brocock safari .22 (pump up cartridge rifle)

Theoben fenman .22

Another Theoben rapid 7 .22

Air arms s410 .22

Logun mk1 .22

RWS excaliber .22

Falcon lighthunter .22

Webly exocet xl .22

Weirauch hw100 .22

Air arms tdr .22 brought on a whim

Walther lever action co2

Theoben mfr .22

Theoben evolution .22

Daystate mk 3 st .177

Datstate mk 4 st .177 now.

Plus all manner of scopes various pistols and am pretty sure i have missed a few rifles off the list.

I think these are all roughly in order of ownership. I certainly wish i still had them all now. I also still have the original .177 the milbro .22 and the airsporter mk2.
