Welcome back ;)

As Haynes said, dive shops are the best bet if airgun clubs prove fruitless. Off the top of my head, I only know for sure about Clubsub. what happened with them in the past? Could have been a one off ball dropping by someone

the first and last time i used clubsub it took me 6 weeks to get my cylinder back that was around 4 years ago, after so long i thought things may have changed so asking a few local shooting lads about clubsub they are telling me nothing has changed one guy still waiting they have had his cylinder over 4 weeks, but it looks like the only place for miles from here to get a test, looks like i might have to travel out of town.

Where do fellow clubbers go? Asking in your local shooting shop might pay dividends too?

Where do you get your bottle filled? Do they not do tests?

Know your pain,same round here.  See pcp compressor thread in the air gun section.  Ok, bit of an outlay, but end of problem! Do you have any friends you could share the cost of purchasing one? How long do you intend shooting a pcp? If it’s s good few years, them it will pay for itself in no time. Bottles, with the hassle of testing and trips for filling have their days numbered imho.

Go on the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) website and "find a club near you". Then contact them to find out where they get their cylinders tested.

Not sure how accurate this is but I did read somewhere that they all go to one place for testing. Is the delay because they wait till they have enough to send in at once.

it might be worth looking for a fire safety place, i used to get a bottle filled at one, they might do tests?
