  1. 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!

  2. 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 amonth cause ammos to expensive

  3. 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?

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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 hoffmann premier he had found in an attic,it is lightly rusted but still works and has the sights on it.He said its mine if i want it free,i just have to see if theres any way to license it or will i have hand it into the guards for destrution as it has no license at the moment,and my mate doesnt know how long its been in his dads attic!

    Are these hw35 hoffmann premiers any good?can you still get parts to fix them up?it seems in excellent condition just a bit rusty,a refinishing would make it good as new!
