    Hi
    Having recently joined, I thought I would say Hello.
    I was a member some years ago but sort of 'left' airguns.
    Now retired in Spain and with time on my hands, what is better to do
    than shooting and fishing.
    So my collection has expanded considerably, including some of the
    local products.
    Regards
    Al

    Hola, mi amigo! Welcome back to the wonderful world of air guns. How are power allowances en España? Sorry for the bad Spanish, I've had a cerveza.

    Hola Trevor
    Thanks for the welcome.
    My Spanish seems to revolve around ordering food and drink and discussing air weapons.
    The guy in the local gunshop seems to appreciate me trying my 'Spanglish' on him.
    he is desperate to sell me a shotgun or two though.

    Hi PJ Thanks for the welcome.
    We love Roquetas, there are some great resorts along the Costa Almeria.

    Thanks for the welcome carne, power limit for air rifles/pistols here is 24 Julios (Joules) compared to 16 in UK but I think the Spanish manufacturers try too hard to get them up there, resulting in twangy, teeth rattlers.
