Old member returning

Hi All. :D

It's been a long time since i was here, looks like things have changed quite a bit. I've still got my four favourite airguns with my lovely thumbhole stocked tuned & blinged S410 being my all time favourite & definite keeper. I also have a Skan MK 4, Skan R32 & a Brocock Compatto.

I took time out seven years ago & got my full bike licence & got heavily into all things motorbike & did a lot of touring around the UK & Europe & beyond then recently i had two rather large heart attacks & was diagnosed as a type two diabetic which cheesed me off somewhat, i was as fit as a flea two months ago or thought i was until i got out of the car & collapsed by the roadside, luckily a workmate saw me go down & got to work on me. i've had to slow down a bit aged 55 & do things a bit different so whilst being off sick i got my airguns out of storage & had a play with them & i'd forgotten how much fun they are so my interest has been reignited.

I've discovered tons of airgun kit i'd forgotten about, scopes, accessories, all sorts, it's been like Xmas all over again. I've got an S410 .22 in bits that i'd like to put back together, i did take my other S410 apart & put it back together quite a few times but i've forgotten how to do it, if i can find a diagram i think i'll have a go at putting it back together, all the parts appear to be there maybe 1-2 items may be missing.

Is Colin Boughton-Begley still on the scene? He did a fantastic job of tuning my current .177 S410 some 5-7 years ago maybe he would be interested in building up my recently discovered .22 S410 thats in bits.

Ah well, thats my story, as soon as i'm passed fit to drive & ride i'll get my BASC insurance & head off over to Petes Airgun farm in Essex some 70 miles from me in Kent, it was a great place years ago & i see Pete has invested time & money & made it even better, he just needs to install a defibrillator just in case i turn up :lol:

Regards to all.

Welcome back to the AAOC.
You have had a rough time :o
Colin has sadly moved away from airguns and has spent his days with a bow and arrow as well as climbing the ranks in scouting

Did I mention that I'm the only one to have attended EVERY annual meet since we started
