    At si,s set off from mine at 4am picked a mate up that was going to see his sister in hospital at Scarborough got to his drop off at 630am and to si,s not long after that we had a bit of a crack over bacon ,,black pudding,,sausage,,egg sandwiches He then cronoed the blue 97 177 for me she is sitting at 11,98 fb so close to the limit lol We were going to go for a play with the 223 but it started p*ssing down so called a day on that we hit one perm to set the rifles up for the night shoot but yes it started p*ssing down again so that was put on hold until night time . Any way to cut a long day short ...We hit the perm around 5,,6ish set the rifles up and off we went rifles were hw97 177 the blue and hw97 177 ks both performed with out fault and si got the first not long after that i got the next later on i layed in wait for them using the vangaurd porter aim got to say the 97 off the porteraim is second to none what a bit of kit it is bit of a faff to carry round mind but its a must for any spring rifle its like having a pod for a spring rifle that dose not jump like most pods on a springer . any way we finished with 22 rabbits picked up ten left the others for mr fox we headed back to si,s and on the way got a parmasan from hell each off to bed at 12ish back up at 5am and out again to another perm using the 97 blue and the fac impact ,25 and si,s new shot gun finished around 10,30 and headed back to sis for another bacon sandwich before picking my mate back up and heading home What a couple of days iv had and with a family friend good shooting good banter and a few laughs (laughs at my expense) Every time i go to si,s im made welcome even if its not to go shooting but a week end on the p*ss or just to chill he is one in a million is our si,brown Thanks mate your ACE atvbjimmy

    You mean you want to buy a new steel proof gun for wildfowl? (Your posts are somewhat cryptic at best Bernardo..I said cryptic not vague!) I'm torn between using my a612 & steel or buying 50 cartridge of another non toxic variety suitable for my 686. So I haven't helped you at all!!

    I know the NW coast extensively so I'll give you a breakdown, Liverpool to Blackpool is loads of sand and water the the colour of shit then you've got Blackpool which you'll want to avoid and the waters still the colour of shit. The water clears further north around Cumbria, mainly due to radiation from sellafield but also due to the amount of rainwater going into the sea id imagine. My advice would be to go to Cornwall

    Here's the HW 97K .177 set to go. 5p size targets at a 38 yd zero off Primos sticks. I`m seriously considering using spring rifles only soon lads as I find myself far more involved with my shooting. The Pro Sport / Classic HW77will be on a fine Zero also. atb. Mark.

    When you say 'rangey rabbits' what sort of range?. A more powerful rifle brings with it more problems. If it's too powerful your pellets will become unstable in flight , you'll have a straighter trajectory but they won't be accurate. This means you'll have to use a heavier weighted pellet. This heavier weight will bring stabilisation and accuracy back but give you a greater arch in the trajectory of the pellet. Plus with F.A.C. you'll use a lot more air.

    All guns are steel proof according to my rfd. It is only when you start using the high pressure stuff that a problem may arise and or more than half choke.

    Here's lots of questions for you. What cal are you going to put it on? What range are you going to shoot over.? What quarry? What light level are you going to use it in ? (Dusk, dawn, mid day sun ?) Now the big one ..... how deep is your pocket ? The mark is the quality of the optics at dusk or dawn. The cheaper ones look fine in bright sunlight but are not so good when the light levels are low. Until you look though the best world class optics you won't know. But it's the use and the cost that will guide you. I looked through that list and I wouldn't buy any of them. They're all variable power with lots of knobs and dials. More to go wrong and break. 6 or 8x40 is plenty of magnification and light transference. If it's fixed power the point of aim doesn't move. At the end of the day it's point and shoot. More glass quality for the $ in your case. Still it's your choice and your money.

    No not meant as a dig, just interested. I don't know anyone Barcelona way to suggest. Perhaps a few pointed posts on Facebook groups might get a bite from locals lol. There must be some about. Stick a few links to English dog's running and some fecker might take the challenge lol.

    Get yourself up the lakes. Near Keswick is a place called Grange. There's a good campsite called Hollows farm. Head to there and continue down the river and up the mountain a little and there is a cave. Or just hammock next to the river
