I have still got my Dads Relum Tornado with its twin spring setup.
There is something magical about shooting spring air rifles that never leaves even when moving onto pcp.

Hello mate
Don’t forget them rabbits, my wife does her nut when they get in the garden but not for long as a pellet usually sorts it.

Had a call a couple of weeks back," rabbit in the garden" . An hour after arriving a couple of days later and one pellet to the noggin, everyone was happy apart from the rabbit obviously 😂

We were back out the other day , grandson is becoming an excellent shot , he suffers badly from ADHD, and has had a hard life ,so its good to see him taking a real interest in this , he got 14 all in for the day some of which I used as fox bait as this in on a large private house with plenty of ground and they keep chickens so want the fox gone , so set up the trail camera and staked the squirrels 20 ft away hat will give me an idea what time it appears at then its a sit and wait

get an old clock, take the back off, and tie some fishing line around the battery. tape the clock to summat solid, and tie t'other end of the fishing line to a squirrel, rabbit, pigeon etc. when the fox takes the bait he pulls the battery out and stops the clock. do this a couple of nights and you'll know what time he's liable to turn up.
shot a fair few foxes doing this, saves waiting up for hours on end ;)
