    Remington Rider. Yehaw!

    I'm getting one of these this week to go with my Pedersoli Liegi, Ardessa vest pocket .31bp and vest pocket .22rf. I just love little pistols that can be used in almost any garden, but wondered if anyone here has a rider, and if sizing the pellets to 4.3mm is really necessary? If it is I will be making a batch of sizers, but internet reports differ.

    Ok, almost any garden in the free world. Is that better?

    Sorry, my English is not up to what you are saying.

    Basically, I'm asking if you have a range in your backyard where you can shoot a firearm. Is that better for you?

    Yes, sorry. Maybe I should have been clearer. The buying and use of black powder guns isn't really controlled across most of the world. I shoot in my garden when I'm in France as well as at the club.
    Have you used/owned the Rider? And do you have an opinion on pellet sizing for it?

    Ah, I was looking at your home address of Bude, and trying hard to imagine shooting even that little gun in the backyard without attracting the attention of a few black helicopters and the lads from Hereford knocking on your forehead.

    No, I've never owned one - sacrificing the joys of shooting one of my full-size firearms so that I could shoot what is classed as a Christmas tree novelty in the rest of the world is not something I'd contemplate with any degree of enthusiasm.

    I have a feeling you could be right re the novelty aspect. I don't know if you remember, but I brought up the subject of my Ardessa vest pocket .31 a while back and the possibility of sleeving it for .22 air gun pellets. Well, I've done that and with a 209 primer it lobs them out at around 400fps with a satisfying, but not too noisy pop! I thought a little .177 would complement it nicely

    I get that! I've been shooting it quite a bit today, its a hoot, don't get me wrong! But why this should be classified as a section one firearm is totally beyond me!? (I know why, I just don't get why?)

    I love it to bits, its great fun, beautifully made and pretty accurate. Using a combination of one plastic and variable amounts of paper caps give power from a "Poof!" With beer can denting to a pretty substaintial bang, a little recoil and baked bean tins destroyed at 10m.

    Oh, and it would fit in a Christmas Cracker!!

    I sleeved one of my Ardessa Vest Pockets to .22, but I left a restricion in the barrel so its still a muzzle loader.
