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.
