    Hello all!
    I am Bill from Manchester.
    Life long lover of all things gunny.
    Used Airguns as a boy then drifted away in my mid teens.
    Got a full bore pistol firearms licence in the 90's- Dunblain ended that of course! I had a 7.63 Mauser ,9mm Luger,9mm Browning Hi Power,9mm French Police S&W revolver,.455 Mk6 Webley revolver( beautiful commercial finish, 7.62 brand new unused Tokarev and Walther PP 9mm short,I will stop there as I am starting to weep!
    Got back into Airguns several years ago and now have Webley Senior( mint boxed) Webley Premier, Russian made Makarov bb, CP 1 .25 converted to carbine, BSA Webley Meteor .22,BSA supersport .25 carbine,mint Webley Osprey.22, Tracker.22, HW95K .177, HW95k.25, Crosman2240 carbine.22, 2250 with 24"barrel in .22 and a partially built 2250 with hpa conversion. Oh nearly forgot a BSA Ultra .177 multi.
    I don't hunt; I am a tinkerer/collecter and 15 yard back garden can killer.
    So to answer Copyu Hunters question , yes I do have a couple or things I can shoot till my Tracker is up and running..

    Strewth! :eek:

    Let me guess -- you're divorced? :p:D

    Had a Browning Hi Power 9mm meself until I sold it recently. Nice shooting pistol, especially after I removed the magazine disconnect to improve the trigger.

    A few of the guys on here frequent Atherton Indoor Range in Manchester -- have you been there?

    No straight air pistols, just rifles or carbine versions of pistols?

    Mint boxed Senior and average Premier. Also the Makarov bb.
    No never been to Atherton. What can you shoot there?
    You can't be from these shores , I'm guessing if you have recently had a Hi-Power??

    Nice collection, welcome to the most laid back airgun forum in the land.
    Coypu Hunter lives with the rabble just over the channel he claims it's a haven of shooting bliss, but some peeps don't believe him.
    Jump in and enjoy.
    Manthing.

    I live in Gun Nirvana, aka deepest Frogland, although I do hail from Blighty originally. :alert:

    Here's the skinny on Atherton, where you can shoot up to FAC air: http://www.athertonindoorrange.co.uk/. There's also a thread started by Shewolf, one of the owners, here: https://www.airgununiverse.uk/threads/new-fac-indoor-range.127613/

    Thanks for the welcome Manthing.
    Sounds like France is more relaxed about the big bores.
    Maybe I should brush up on my French o level :)
