    Definitely springers. There are some dodgy characters about using springers these days.
    They're rather like those who will persist in using film in their cameras and disappear to do mysterious things in dark rooms.
    People who shoot springers always have that very pleasing smile on their face. Have you noticed? There has to be something distinctly odd to make a grown man walk about with a self-satisfied smirk on his face all of the time. ;)

    There's no doubt in my mind :D :D

    Having said that, I do like my HW77.
    I can't hit anything with it. But I can't hit anything with a PCP either, so ......

    That's what I like about Conor.
    He wouldn't even consider sitting on the fence. Not a moment of doubt. :confused: :eek:
    Straight out with. Says exactly what's on his mind. Not even a flicker of ambiguity. :rolleyes:

    C'mon big fella. State your case. You don't want piles at your age. :D :D

    Stone the crows Dave. that's walking on thin ice, isn't it ?? :D
    Utterly reliable - that's what you are Conor, my boy. Utterly reliable. :)
    That's the thing with a springer, Lee.
    You don't have to give it wind. When you squeeze the trigger, it jerks so much that the pellet goes 6" to one side of where you aimed, and the TC falls over. Lavant Lad is right to ask the question. It seems like black magic. :eek:o :D (springers the thing)

    I have a flat cap, keep whippets and ferrets and have a beard. Guess what I shoot?

    Don't really qualify with the grin. Far too miserable.

    ... and HFT'ers have just announced that to comply with 2014 rules you have to have your butt outside of your clothes.

    How weird ... there's a few HFT shooters that are just going to look wrong in chapless pants.
