    .177 darts

    i like the sound of these but surely you cant use them in a pre charge air rifle? the ones i have seen are 1" long!

    I'm thinking of setting a dartboard at about 20ft and challenging the missis.

    Ruin your rifling though
    Enjoy every step you take, you never know which one will be your last.

    If you want to destroy the rifling and the accuracy of the rifle then darts are the perfect way to do it

    If you want to use them I would suggest buying the cheapest pistol you can find and use that

    Trust me you don't want to put darts in your rifle, they will wreak you barrel. Darts are made for smoothbore plinkers, not performance guns with rifled barrels.
    This is my rifle. There are many like it but this one is mine.. Logun Axsor Carbine .177 Weaver V24 6-24x42

    Darts

    To give you an idea of how good they are, I won't let any of my rifles in the same room as them - Not even my B2!

    If you come and see me when I'm by the car at the next Shepreth meet I've got some dart board card targets you can have.

    Cheers buddy.

    They're challenging at 30 yards to get a clean hit, I played darts with my Grandad we had seperate cards and played round the world with him bench rested and me standing - He whupped me!

    You can use them with whatever you want to, just don't put darts down the bore of a serviceable rifle!

    Isn't that an odd thing what?

    Just come back from the pub, where one of the topics of conversation at the bar was shooting darts out of Gat guns at dart boards, which was quite the thing after closing time years back.

    Get home, fire up the computer - and the same conversation continuing on the forum! Are you lot sure you weren't just down the Boot in Histon just now?

    Come on - own up there!
