    Good work as always John

    I was busy so once again didn’t see half the stuff there.

    In the present economic climate I did ok and it’s worth the effort to see airgun mates

    I did see more youngsters ( ie under 70 )buying which is good

    Quite a few kids with Mums and Dads too

    Many thanks to Pete and Liz and team

    Runs like clockwork even when we all turn up at once!

    I'm pleased you sold the take down rifle as I was tempted. Had it been loose with no 'suitcase', I may have succumbed!

    Nice Makarov

    I miss seeing you there Mick. Might be worth considering booking in somewhere overnight to make a weekend out of it?

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for that John, great pictures.

    Also thanks for showing the prices, gives those unable to attend a better idea of what they're missing.

    I agree that Bellows gun looked lovey, any idea what the asking price was?

    Down the bottom of the picture gallery I noticed an interesting looking Hamerelli APS-3 SSP match pistol but seems it only shoots plastic airsoft bbs, very odd.

    Lot's of good stuff there.

    Hope to attend the next one,
    Cheers,
    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    The Bellows was priced at £1250 and the 6mm match pistol was apparently intended as a trainer for The Pony Club or a similar organisation (I was told but am afraid I have forgotten already!).

    There was certainly an interesting selection of unusual airguns at this one. Kempton is definitely the Premier event for airguns in my view.

    It looks very nice
    I see it has a much smaller compression chamber than a full power jobbie, I bet itís a lot easier to cock.
    Heard the FAAS 604 is widely used in pony club but never heard of a lower power bb version.

    Very interesting.
    Cheers,

    Always looking for any cheap, interesting, knackered "project" guns. Thanks, JB.

    Could be the Bellows airgun we've mentioned?

    If so, there are some markings on top if the airgun, which I photographed but I'm not quite sure what they say.

    I'm guessing it fires darts rather than pellets though as the latter were not around when the airgun was made during the late 1700s.
