Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and air arms but not too shooting. Been out of the game for nigh on twenty years up until last year when I bought a crappy little plinker off a pal for shooting targets. The bug grew again so decided to treat myself to a pro sport in .22 as I always found .177 difficult to manage.
First impressions of the pro sport
Amazing looking rifle, never seen a stock on a rifle like it thats less than a monkey before and the blueing!!!!!! my god
build quality, best I've ever seen on a springer without doubt
accuracy-shooting pencils at 17 yards practically straight out of the box(nice one pellpax)
compact (which I like as always been a carbine shooter personally)
noise, love the barrel shroud
sharpness of the roll over (like a bloody stanley knife)
inability to reset the safety????really wtf as a hunter, this has suprised me immensely
Personal verdict, expensive rifle but very happy with it and before anyone says should have go ta tx, I know this but I had to employ some kidology here as my mrs knew I had the old break barrel so I had to purchase something similar looking. I told her I had bought a new stock for my old rifle and got away with it
so far anyway.
Anyway, aiming to speak to the dump managers along the grand union over the next couple of weeks so hopefully get in some ratting. Already contacted some of the local fisheries that I frequent but theres a waiting list. Any tips greatly appreciated for chances around Isleworth, Richmond, Twickenham.
Happy hunting, and nice to meet you all
