  1. I threw together a slide show from some of the foxing iv done over the last few years on youtube,we got some nice big ones aswell! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8n62fhXeMo
  2. a walk in the sun?what is this sun you talk of?has been raining here not stop for a month!nice few rabbits for the pot there
  3. it has me sickened cause id love to own it,but unfortunately that wont be happening,the stock looks the same as yours but is a lighter colour
  4. thats why i threw the video up,but antis being antis will say its staged etc but i love showing this to people who say they dont take lambs
  5. He sure was,this was from last year,we got many more foxes in the area,ill try do a slide show on youtube with some more foxing pics when i get a chance
  6. Just a short video of a fox i got on a permission where the farmer was losing lambs,spotted the eyes in a ditch moved into about 170yards till i could confirm it was a fox,let a hornady vmax 223 fly his way and heard that thump confirming a hit,we walked to have alook at him he was sitting in the ditch on top of 2 lambs i pulled him out so i could video the lambs.It was a nice feeling getting that fox! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-FjjYdfpuM
  7. yeah i suppose if i were target shooting you could just bring the tank to where you are shooting for fills hunting 3oshots would be grand!how many times could you fill a hw100 with a 300bar 4ltr dive bottle?
  8. its going to be a heart wrenching choice as ill prob have to get rid of 2 guns to get the pcp gun!wish i was able get a 12ftlb with no license but shooting is being strangled here so thats not an option
  9. i was looking at the hw100 in griffin and hawe aswell,thats where i seen the most airrifles,i allready have a 22lr a 223 and a shotty but i wanted get something for cheap shooting,500pellets for 8e is alot of fun shooting cheap,the 223 ammo is gone to near 30e a box of 20 so ya cant go out shooting 100 rounds and 500 22lr is gone up to 35e for cheapest most innaccurate stuff you can buy, good 22lr ammos about 50-60e for 500.i was thinking to get the hw100t with a pump and just top up after 30-40 shots. i just want something i can shoot cheap rather than a safe queen that only gets out once am
  10. id guess you would have pay up front for that im going to do a trade in so im not sure what way that would work,also you need import licenses and such.what pcps would you recommend for plinking and vermin moxy?anyone on here using a hw100t fac for plinking and vermin?is it a pain that the shot count is low?i was watching teds holdover on youtube with a .17 hw100 he was getting 30 shots per fill,but he found hat a lot of the 17 pellets would not stabilize in flight due to the high power of the rifle 30ftlb ithink. would the effect be the same using a 22lr 30ftlb rifle?
  11. im in southern ireland pcps are few and far between down here as you need a licence for any airrifle no matter what the power,so most people go for 22lr rifles ect.its crazy you license a 12ftlb springer the same way as a .308,most shops have a few springers not many have pcps pumps or dive bottles
  12. tried it in germany a few times its really nice thin sliced with crusty bread and nice cheese!
  13. iv only ever had a springer but due to the crazy price of .223 ammo i was thinking or trading my centerfire in for a pcp,but im unsure what type id go for local gunshop has hw100t fac for 1100e and a bsa ultra for 450e second hand and a bsa r10 for 795e,id have to get a pump or dive bottle also,how reliable are the weihrauchs and bsa guns?bsa seem to be low quality from all the problems i find online.The weihrauch looks and feels great all reports i read are good but if you want to shoot targets you would be filling between 3 and maybe 5times which id say would get boring fast
  14. I read that a 12ftlb hw100t only gives 60 shops per fill,if so does that mean a fac rated hw100t will probly only give 30shots per fill?also how often does a pcp need servicing thins like seals changed etc?
  15. how long will it be before you go to that location again?do you leave it awhile to let the rabbits multiply again or is it just pure vermin control you are doing?
  16. secreagent mole ,here you apply for the license for each gun you own so its 80e per license,on the license application you have to state where you bought the gun and that shop has to have in its books where it got the gun from so one like this that was lost/forgotten about for 30 odd years cant be licensed
  17. just rang up the gun dealer,it cant be licensed under our laws as you need to know its origin for the license it will have go to the gunshop to be cut up there gos my chances of an air gun anytime soon
  18. I have been shooting for a good few years now mostly 22lr and centerfire rifles,I had a weihrauch hw77 .22 limited edition which i really liked but stupidly sold and for the last few months iv had a hankering for another airgun.I am from ireland so we have to license all airrifles at a cost of 80E no matter how powerfull as such airrifles are not very popular here as cz22lr is usually cheaper than a nice weihrauch 77 or 95 which are being sold here for 550-600e +80e for license.Not having not much money to spend id pretty much given up on an airrifle until today when a mate showed me a hw35 ho
  19. hi guys iv been a member for awhile but fell away from using forums for a bit,just found a nice air rifle so might be able to get some feedback from all of you,about it!thanks!
