Pellet stuck in barrel , made me chuckle

I love it when customers come in and tell me "it's only a simple job, it'll take you 5 mins" Then tell me what to do. The more they talk the more expensive it gets.

I remember when a few years ago I had an old underlever Webley air rifle with the top loading through a 90degree valve style loader, you dropped the pellet in vertically then turned the mechanism 90 degrees to align it with the barrel, it miss fired and jammed the pellet just a short way into the barrel, being a bit of a bodger (at the time ) I though I could blow it out with another pellet, all I did was rivet the first one tighter into the barrel, It took a major strip down and a lot of hammering with a long steel rod to remove them, it was a very good accurate rifle but it had to go after that, far too unreliable , after that I bought a Crossman pump .22, now that was a lethal gun, these days it would have to be on a FAC, but in those days it was 10 bob from the post office for the licence. those were the days.😄
