The other evening I was desperate for some CO2 capsules, and I remembered British Sports in Praed Street, 2 minutes from Paddington station. They sold me some which were cheaper (£5 for 10) than the ones I had bought at a 'bargain' price on ! Huzzah for real shops! If any of you are desperate for ammo or CO2 here is the address.

You must be strong, will-power can overcome this desperation. If not you could try hypnotism to break the addiction. Or maybe the NHS can give you a dry ice patch for your arm.Originally Posted by Hsing-ee

Nah, the NHS do a substitute,........... Sodastream canisters
That is a bloomin' expensive shop, IMHO. They have had one of those electric-cocking Browning air rifles (whirrr-grind) sat in their rack, with a risibly unrealistic price tag on it, for a couple of years now.
Well its probably worth £600 to a collector now! But it does seem to be the only place you can get pellets and Co2 in the middle of town. Woody's, Manor Firearms and Mays were all at least an hour roundtrip, and everyone knows you have to go to a railway station to get a fix of what you fancy so I was just pointing it out!?!Originally Posted by draftsmann
I work for the NHS and we've got some huge cylinders of CO2 but I'd find it difficult explaining it to the boss being caught in flagrante delecto with one of them and my Tau-7 .... actually she probably wouldn't be that suprised ...Originally Posted by Kev. (Cambs.)
There are one or two <cough> alternative sources of entertainment near Paddington.....that was what you meant, Alistair, wasn't itOriginally Posted by Hsing-ee

I was thinking of something round-bottomed, definitely
