    @ Paul, Hellequin

    Have you got round to fitting the spring kit to the little Relum yet, Paul? Just wondering if it helped with the "trigger finger slap" if so?

    Typical, damn near kill myself cutting back the Garden yesterday for new Ammo to try today and its p*ssing it down, can't try it on the Indoor range as Guns are too powerful.
    Perfect argument for another Gun me thinks when funds allow, atleast thats how I'll plead my case to 'er indoors

    May have an indoor plink when meds kick in and then be a little prodcutive, been contemplating finally finishing a Microaquarium I designed based on old Rocket Lava lamps, Sea Monkeys only living in it of course but thats about the limits of my Pet care abilities these days anyway.

    I don’t normally do this but have you tried airsoft for the indoor fun? You can buy a full auto gun albeit with non realistic blue stock or whatever but it does mean you can machinegun the hell out of cornflakes boxes at 12 feet and as they’re mostly electric with reusable 6mm round ammo it could be the inexpensive rainy day pick me up you need..

    Yes I do, got 3 pistols currently with some old ones possibly lurking and then the Record Jumbo should be low enough and Daisy 880 is on one pump using lead only.
    New Gun would be because the new ammo is .22 (Daisy is a .177), probably wont like low power anyway as they are copper coated so heavier but my .22s are both Break Barrels, Webley supposedly should be 8ftlbs or so but it definately looks like its doing more (but still in the legal zone) based on Damage its been doing and BSA was 11 something I think in the hands of its last owner (been a little while since I spoke to him, hoping to catch up soon once I do the Kit).

    Not yet mate. My work hours have been pretty horrific so time off is short & spent mainly catching up on sleep. Although me and the boy had a cracking plinking session last week, with with the Original 6g & Webley Senior I bought from that dodgy geezer who comes over from France

    I'm starting a new job next week which, after the training course will be 4 on 4 off shift pattern, so I should have more time. I'm still in two minds whether to move it on though along with the Airsporter S that I brought to the bash. I'm having that lovely 34 from Melv and I really can't keep em all.

    Tell her they're all bargains that will appreciate in value and look after her when you're gone
    They always fall for that

    That don't work for me, partly because I made the mistake of going in a Gunshop with her, now if I could convince her Staffys prefer households full of Air guns she'd be coming home with an arsenal although Lurcher may have something to say about it as he's very much a 1 dog household kind of Dog.

    Haha! That's not the issue Pete, my Mrs happily lets me get on with several expensive hobbies. My issue is more one of space & time to use the bloody things, plus I'm getting more picky in what 'fits' my collection criteria.

    Short ammo test as pain levels are still stupid high, so the Pellets are H&N Baracuda Power which have a copper coating and the 2 Guns were the Webley Falcon and the BSA Supersport.

    Both shot very nicely, Webley maybe a bit more on target than it was last with the Vintage Wasps and the pellets fatness playing to the Webleys older British bore size, BSA was a good girl as always with maybe a slight drop but this is something a lot notice in sub 12s with them from what I've read, they are quite heavy pellets so longer range targets they'll be better suited to FAC Rifles but sub 12 will be fine for closer Hunting ranges as they hit bloody hard.

    Deffo want to bring some of my Tall Skeletons to the bash for people to try, they take multiple good hits giving off great plumes of 'smoke' yet the buggers still up for more, can even paint them neon so the less visually blessed can spot them, still plenty left should Visitors arrive and fancy a plink too.

    If you use them you'll wear them out
    It's best to have lots and use each a little
