Some of us shot A LOT of stuff with a BSA Meteor back in the sixties.

I did with the one I had, but it wasn't the 60s.

Loving the humor. 

London Best, where's your pictures??

Mark One BSA Meteor with BSA Mk.1 telescope.

Dad bought me one for Christmas in 1961. Meteor was £9.45 and the scope was £2.10.  Total £11.55p. Dad earned £10 per week then.

Not the same one, unfortunately Mr. Figgy. I parted with the first one about 1965, regretted it and bought another which I kept until about 1972. The current one is the second one I have had purely for collection purposes. I collect older BSA’s up to Mk.2 Airsporter. Unusually, this Meteor has a .22 serial number stamped on the barrel but is a .177. And it chrono’s hobby’s at 800 FPS!

Not shot it much but seems as accurate as any other Meteor. It seems quite harsh though, so may have had an “expert” inside it. To be honest I bought it on impulse to replace another Mk 1 in the collection as it’s in VGC .

Very nice, and different,  not sure many could take that sort of pic, some tinsel on the horns and boom.

@Walker570 come on nev, can you beat this for its uniqueness?

I do hope this is not going to turn into a willy waving contest!

If it does, I’m out!

PS The Blue Wildebeest bull was not shot with the Meteor either,

I'm afraid I would be out of it as well :cry1: but Mice taunted me and you egged me on.

Didn't realise yours was a wildebeest.

Nice effort with the festive theme and three dead sqizzers

Yep good effort,  strange how you aren't seeing berries as I've seen loads.

Many Holly bushes round my way have none or very few berries. Two in the garden hedge are bare. Bad weather at wrong time I think.

Getting a little more ‘festive’ now.

1905 First Batch BSA, serial num. 1570, with home made aperture sight. Very accurate, won many a pineapple at bell target.
Oh, eight different single malts and a bottle of cooking whisky.72A5CCAF-37FD-4968-A5C7-561D666FD016.jpeg.bef5892b13a24f8d7e0c29b9287b77f4.jpeg

Very nice, but your confusing me, I'm getting torn between the whiskeys and the classic rifle.

Looks to be in fantastic condition for her age
