A new kid in town

A new kid in town

Postby Pete236 » Sun Aug 07, 2016 8:26 am

Morning all.

I'm Pete, and I'm an AA... or at least I soon will be.
I've been struggling with a beast of an HW100 which has spurned all the love and attention that I've lavished on it.
So, I spoke to Cloverleaf from the airgun forum, and he has talked me into (I didn't need much persuading!) an AA S410 Classic .22
Hopefully I will get my hands on the beastie in a week or so!
I'm looking forward to learning a new rifle, a new make and model and a new calibre (I've always been a .177 man)
But since I've only been shooting for a year it's going to be a steep learning curve!
Hope to meet you folks around the forum and maybe out in t'real world too!
Cheers, Pete.

Cheers Brian! Well, I've always wanted to try a .22 and this is a good chance... I might well be proving you right in a few months time!

Hi Pete
Welcome to the AAOC. Great choice of gun, regardless of calibre . Dont mind the nonsense about best calibres on here. You will see a lot of best calibre threads on here.
When you are used to the new calibre it will be just as devastating as a 1.77. Practice makes perfect.

Cheers Kevin!
I'm hoping against hope that the AA won't be as pellet fussy as the HW, so I will be able to get plenty of pellets down the barrel at the permission.
I'm really excited, like a kid at Christmas, the next 10 days or so can't come quick enough!

Mine likes AA field diablo 5.52. For some reason the 5.51s dont group as good a over 25 yards.

I do mention Cloverleaf. He's helped me no end with my HW100 and we're quite good mates now. He's doing well in Oxford, keeping himself busy. I will certainly pass on your regards!
