Re: Firepower

All I remember is, it's the pin with the hole, at the top rear of the receiver, that needs removing. There is a set screw on the side that keeps it in place. I tapped the end plug with a rubber mallet and pulled the trigger back at the same time. The pin popped up enough to get hold of, but it is a ...

need some new jokes

Not a joke, but I always found it amusing. My Grandpa always told me that he had only been wrong once in his entire life(he dies at 95). He said it was the time he thought he's made a mistake.

Re: Rabbits

I guess grey squirrels are smarter than rabbits. I have only taken 10, in the past few weeks, from my yard, and they have totally wised up.

Re: Air arms TX200 HC

The round holder was used up until a few years ago, so the gun could still be pretty new. I have the round holder on both my full length MarkIII TX's because I think they look better than the newer slab sided holder. They're also a direct swap, if you can find one. The slab side holder has always be...

Re: Pellet sizes

Test different die #'s and buy all you can afford, when you find the right one. Make sure to test at 55 yards and in a breeze. I have 20,000 pellets that are great in calm air, but pretty much crap in a light breeze.

Re: FPoole MHR

Thanks guys. I cooked myself a frozen pizza and looked after my wife and daughter. Both are suffering a bit of virus or food poisoning. They're feeling better now and, once again, I luckily missed out. My next birthday will see me enter another decade and I just can't fathom how I got this old and s...

Re: A question about U.K. farm land

But what if we lay flat on our backs, in a field of blooming rape seed, and shake the plants above us as we snort in? :lol: I'm only affected by oak pollen, but I can live with it. I used to take all kinds of prescription medicine for this, but I found that I could just use my will power and wash ou...

Re: A question about U.K. farm land

Thanks, now I know what rape seed looks like in bloom. Looks beautiful, but I wouldn't care for the pollen levels either.

A question about U.K. farm land

I watch some shows here that have nice shots of U.K. farm land. I see large areas covered with yellow flowers that are obviously planted as a crop. What are they? Just something I've always wanted to know.

Re: Pellet speed

With the 8.4 grain Exacts, I've seen U.S. FAC spec guns as high as 960, but I would say 920-940 is more typical.
