    Resist the urge Ian, spring powered recoiling guns are the work of the devil, nasty 'orrible things - they'll have you talking about delrin pips & moly viscosity in little huddles of men with beards that smell of wee.:eek:

    The only recoiling guns worth bothering with have thick target barrrels, anschutz on the side and take a .22 rimfire shell:D

    Couldn't agree with you more!!! Still can't figure out why I'm such a crap shot with a pcp :( but can kick some pcp shooter ass with my 97k anytime :D:D:D

    Ironically I only have one springer but 3 pcp's :confused:

    Reading the posts on this thread, it seems that most of you over here are anti spring guns!

    Whats up guys, can't handle the recoil? Afraid it will hurt your handies? :D:D:D

    ... 'cos they keep both eyes shut when using PCP's so that at least there's some sort of challenge.
