By 'eck, this is an old thread. Dug up by a newbie ta boot.
Well done on using the search function, wish there were more like you
I used to shoot small bore rifles & pistols in my younger days, before they banned pretty much everything.
Now I just have a couple of air rifles, one of which needs repairing. Been thinking of applying for a license so I can up the power a bit, give the rats & bunnies something to think about.
