  1. This gun has been amazing fun and at this point has cost me next to nothing to use, the bbs I brought (Umerex) worked out to be a third of the cost of cheap pellets and I've even put a few back through the gun. Using the iron sights I am able to take shotgun cartridges standing on end at 14 meters and about 70% of them end on at the same distance although I was struggling to see the sights properly as they are both black and the background/target were fairly dark .By using a white paint pen to mark the front sight the sight view seems a lot better but I haven't tried shooting yet. The shortness of the gun makes it a pleasure to handle. The bbs go through both sides of a tin can and embed in the back stop even though I'm only doing 8 pumps of the gun, pumping it each shot does get a bit tedious. If I could find a single stroke or co2 bb youth gun of better quality I would definitely buy it.
  2. I've just tried it in the workshop shooting at used 12g shells with BBs it fired the shotgun shell up in the air went straight though the biscuit tin backstop and ended up embeded in the wood of the door ! The .177 air pistol just put a little bit of a dent in the biscuit tin if I missed the shotgun shell ! It's also a nice length sort of carbine.
  3. I'm always in the right mind but unfortunately my mind is defective !
  4. O.k I came across this on Gun trader within a couple of miles from me, It really appealed to me as it matches the summer dress and pink High heels I like to wear whilst out shooting ( It really does keep people away. I've been having some good plinking fun with it in the garden and the added bonus is it really winds the Mrs up ( Although she did have a go with it) It look like a really cheap version of the Pink Hatsan Escort 20 gauge Mrs Badger had.
  5. Hello all, I'm considering a Daisy red rider BB rifle for a bit of garden plinking has anyone had one or something similar ? I'm interested as my grand kids have shown an interest but cannot handle my full size rifles. cheers
  6. Good news the hammers come down, the bad news is it's embed in next doors Jaguars wind screen and there is a helicopter with police written on it upside down on the grass outside with a hammer shape hole in it ( just remember it's got nothing to do with me ! I wasn't even in)
  7. O.k I tried to hammer the shot shell in and this happened ! The hammer still hasn't come down there is a big hole in my roof and I seem to be missing some fingers all though I've never been good at counting ! please advise ! I'm 51 by the way
  8. That makes total sense Ultrstu So the softness of the lead allows it mold to the barrel as it fires or is pushed in. The gun really is naff I tried shooting an Ali beer can at point blank range and all it did was put a small dent in even his BB gun had more power and actually went through. That said I think it really is a cheap gun and this one had clearly suffered some abuse in the past.Next experiments will be to see if I can get a 12g shell in it.
  9. Woops ! Bruno seems to have anger management issues I hope no one has been daft enough to allow you near guns ! I did try fitting .22 pellets but even with a very big hammer they still wouldn't go in.
  10. right so the .177 does not include the skirt ! It doesn't rally matter as I have no intention of using bb's but was just interested in the size difference.
  11. O.k first thing I'll admit is the gun a SMK S2 ( super naff air pistol) is not designed for BB's but as I only spent I think 10 or 20 quid on it a few years back I decided whilst a mate was round with his bb firing gun I would put a couple through it, this never happened as as soon as I put them in they fell out the other end ! I checked the size on the bottle ( umerex) they were listed as .177 but are clearly not the same as a .177 pellet why is this ? The bb can be rattled around in the barrel.
  12. Thanks for that, I've looked at pistol scopes but unfortunately they are more expensive than the gun so I think I'll stick to plinking !
  13. I don't have a scope at the moment for it, I did think of trying my BSA 4X32 scope from one of my rifles just as an experiment. The Iron sights are o.k for plinking but not great for targets, this is not helped as the rear sight moves every time you touch it.
  14. Thanks everyone ,much appreciated. It does look like great fun !
  15. Black powder revolvers, how are they licensed ? I been watching various vids on Youtube about Black powder revolvers, Most of these vids are of course from the good old USA but I was looking through a UK gun listing the other day and noticed a number of revolvers which would not match the description of a long barreled pistol for UK use so what are people doing with these ? Thanks all
