    Thanks man, as I said, am new to this but am also enjoying it. Martin, ta for the help etc, like the look of that Weihrauch too, may be a better bet for the immediate future.

    BladeSmoker , what do you want the gun for ?A HW100 is quite a bit more expensive.

    Ultimately FT and also hunting as well as generl fun on the farm - guess it's very broad spectrum but I would like to join a club within the next 6 months and have fun. Unlike most other sports, after the initial outlay, it works out to be pretty inexpensive and I do enjoy it.

    Due to my recent investment and unexpected (read "lucky") performance at the Alberton shoot with my new toy, the Weihrauch that BladeSmoker is referring to is the HW97K. How could I in all sincerity recommend any other rifle to him considering his broad requirement and the price (and, ahem, the fact that I'm by no stretch of the imagination the most qualified here to offer such advise...hehehe...)?

    I've seen many a used PCP for sale on the forum, but not one HW97K so far yet unless I missed it...must tell you something...

    Can be used for FT (Weihrauch springers were used for years at top level FT before PCP took over), hunting, plinking, great fun on a farm if you're walking for miles (and have strong arms - its not light!), no SCUBA bottles to lug about or get filled or tested, no regulator to go dicky...

    I know this one's going to stir up a hornets nest...hehehe...

    I can't find the lead to download the pics from my camera, but I have photo on it of a 1 hole group of 4 shots from 10m using a cheapie 4x32 Nikko Stirling scope...I couldn't believe my eyes...

    Nothing wrong with a Hw 97K.

    I was real impressed with Spykers 97 after he put the Macarri kit in.

    hp,
    Take my word for it, you have talent for shooting. I would hate to shoot against you when/if you [upgrade] to a PCP one day.

    I have a HW97 in 0.2 calibre. Today I have shot a 5 shot group at 35 yards where all 5 shots touched each other from a FT sitting position.

    However I still dream of a Air Arms springer in 0.177

    Allan whenever I made a decission in my life and focused on it, it materialised and so it will be with the Air Arms springer.

    If it will be a TX200 or Pro-Sport I do not know, when it will happen I do not know but that it will happen that I do know.

    gerrief stop, I can't take any more of these compliments...soon there won't be enough room here for this big head of mine...!!!

    I think I can improve on how I shot on Sunday, I need to learn how POI is affected by distance, particularly the close-up shots (I practise mainly 10m in my garage), and I need to get the dialling in techno stuff sorted too. I did poorly on the close-up shots with reducers, and I have no idea where my shots hit the target so I need to practice more on my paper punching until I get it right. When sighting in at the range I concentrated too much on where my 30m and 45m shots went and didn't spend enough time checking out 10m shots.

    For the time being I don't see a reason to go PCP as I know the shots I missed were not because of the gun, it was me not aiming properly. I have no desire really to be no.1, as long as I don't come last I'm happy, so I may never buy a PCP, and the PCP guys are not snobs so I won't feel little at shoots anyway.

    I'm not much of a "follow the crowd" type of person, I may even shoot the next time with my break-barrel Diana if I can get it shooting well enough, should be different!
