Yes, I've been surrounded by a coughing, sniffing and whining family for the past couple of weeks too but somehow avoided getting anything myself. Garlic tablets is the trick I reckon.
I did get this for Christmas though....

Got a Motone Monza style filler cap , Motone alloy brake reservoir cap , thruxton seat and seat hump , TEC preload adjusters and a pair of Gazi Hyper X rear shocks (360mm) for the T100 . To be fair some of that was from my birthday 4 days previously . Santa must think I've been good this year :smile:

I was at work from the end of November until yesterday so it didn’t feel much like Christmas. Today I’m on my way to somewhere warm, currently sitting in Aruba waiting for a connecting flight. Hopefully when I get where I’m going the Christmas Spirit can be rekindled......

I’ve no idea what I have in the way of presents yet.

I’ve not been playing long myself but it’s something I’ve wanted to do for years. I’ve played a variety of instruments before (violin, cornet, saxophone) but they’ve fallen by the wayside as work/life has taken its toll so I’m going to make a concerted effort in the new year.
This is what she’s bought me. A Yamaha Pacifica, It’s a lovely thing:thumbup:

So he can charge it whilst using it. Drawback of PCP air rifles if you are shooting a lot of pellets. And when that's empty he can go home unless he is near a compressor.

I was either taking the piss or I'm thick as pig shirt. You be the judge!

I'd likdto get back into shooting myself but don't have anywhere to shoot at the moment, think I'd go for a PCP uf I did as I'm too lazy go a springer and prefer not to have a 10 min' teabreak between shots.

Sounds ideal for me then. Can't believe haw expensive airguns are these days. Bought my Las rifle when I was still a school, now some are into four figures, that would be some paper round.

BSA make really good air rifles , I've got an original BSA Superten Mk1 pcp ,fitted with silencer and hawk sights . Dialled in it is super accurate and kills rats no probs . I got the scuba tank as well although it does need testing . 200 shots out of the buddy bottle is plenty enough for going to local range for plinking targets . BSA Ultra Tactical is much lighter than my gun although it probably doesn't have the same shot capacity as the S10 or R10 (R10 replaced the S10).
Mate of mine had the BSA R10 , BSA Lightning (gas ram) , and BSA Gold Star ,all good air rifles though the Lightning takes a bit/lot more skill to be accurate .

Ultra is a great PCP , I was looking at one before I got offered my S10 :thumbup:

My S10 .22 10shot

'Kin 'ell, my HW97 springer only cost me £60 and is deadly accurate and I can put 500 rounds through it no problem. Underlever makes it more usable but the little HW35 break action is ideal for long sessions and the chinese cheapy is surprisingly accurate. And I can cycle my springers faster than your PCP's. My mate had one and it was OK till it had to be reloaded....

Had a Weihrauch HW97 before I got the S10 . No way you can reload one of those quicker than a 10 shot repeater. I can put 500 rounds through the S10 no problem as I've got two spare bottles and just swap them out , plus I've got more than one cartridge
It is much harder to be pin accurate and have close groupsets with a springer against a PCP . I've tried both , the lack of recoil on pcp is what gives them the advantage :thumbup:.

Ah, but you have not factored in that after the ten shots you have to twat about reloading the dam things by hand (having more than one cartridge just proves my last point really and twatting about loading them in the firt place....:smirk:)and I have been against one of those with my HW and I had 14 shots out well before he had finished twatting about reloading his pcp. Had it been an airsporter it would have taken a bit longer but the HW35 break barrel was a bit faster.
(still killed pigeons and was very accurate to boot; it had been modded to be smoother than the original though)
Who wants to walk about with two spare bottles about their person when shooting. Pocket full of pellets and we are offski. And I can put a thousand pellets through end to end without moving if I so wished.

Like I said PCP are for the bone idle.....:evil:

oooohhh, rifles. Been looking at pcp as want to get back into shooting, childhood thing. The only thing i have around here to shoot at are moving targets on scramblers, not a bad thing though, so somewhere near to shoot would be ideal.

Personally I wouldn't carry a spare bottle with me as I wouldn't expect to pump out more than 150 shots in one session .And I've got three cartridges so I can fire 30 shots off in a crack , but not that I would do that normally , and they are no harder to fill than putting a single pellet in a break barrel each time you fire. Each to their own though , I had a go with my mates Lightning gas ram and I loved it but it was nowhere near as accurate as a PCP.
Springers are much noisier aswell , even with silencer fitted , but they "feel" more powerful due to the recoil .

Feel has nowt to do with it. Mine is tuned to just under the legal limit with the best pellets for it (all mine are) and tested to make sure I am legal. I have a chrono to make absolutely sure.

There are ways and means to make a springer quite quiet. You just have to know what to do. (hint; most of the noise comes from the spring twang)

Most rifles will be supplied with just under the 12ft/lbs limit for a nonFAC rifle , otherwise you can get into serious trouble if they are over that figure . So they all have the same power , piss poor in reality . You like springers , that's fine , I'm not going to argue about known facts , I've already said I've had a HW97 and they are a well made beginners air rifle :thumbup:.

Now I have never seen one at the local range Nick , but i know that your's is not a run of the mill plinking air rifle , it's competition spec and would have been serious money (relatively) at the time. Couple of lads have FX rifles and that's about the best I've seen and shot (£2k+):thumbup:

What like people who choose a pcp because its easier to use and doesn't have a recoil so its like spitting over the wall beginners?

PCP are restricted to the same ft/lb limit as well unless you have a FAC. PCP are the ultimate beginners air rifle......Springers are for the more discerning shooter who does not just want to pop off 10 rounds hoping to hit something but wants to learn how to control a real gun....it would be a bit of a shock for a pcp shooter to trade up to a rim fire or beyond just because of the foregoing. :lol::lol::tongueout::kiss:

Whoa , steady on dude . I'm just saying that the HW97 is a relatively cheap air rifle , you've already said you paid £60 second hand for it , you think that is an expensive top of the range springer do you ?
And I've already stated the ft/lbs are the same on virtually exactly the same unless FAC , or you get a s!$% one with really low power .
If you're wanting to pop off vermin the PCP is , imo , the better air rifle due to it's accuracy over a springer . The springer does take more skill for sure . As for rim fire and beyond , living in an old farm we always had a shotgun (fourten) until the guns amnesty when it was handed over as no longer needed .
