    hey folks,

    First time posting and its a happy day in the Martin residence :)
    i finally got my hw97kt and im over the moon! I got the .177 with a hawke panorama ev 4-12x40 ir :)
    It was chrono'd at the shop at 11.8ft lbs in my presence. I don't know if thats a little bit powerful for what im wanting to do (hft/ft) but i will find out i guess.

    im now looking in to joining a local club but im not really sure where to look lol i stay in central Scotland and know of one in juniper green im going to give them a call and see if i can come along.
    any tips or advice for a newbie before i do go along? what i will need, what to expect.. things like that lol

    cheers

    Davie

    Shoot it and enjoy :shot:

    Put a tin or 2 of pellets through it and you will find almost certainly that the power will have crept up and will probably be over limit, so will need a bit of spring adjustment to bring it back down. In reality, 11fpe will be more than up to the job and give a slightly nicer firing cycle as well.
