1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Hello
    I thought I would post a 'hello' for my first post.
    I am 15 living in newcastle, I have used air guns since 13 and became quite a good shot, hitting a coke can from 75metres.
    My guns are a Weihrauch HW35 .177, this is my favorate an my only air rifle, I use the open sights on it and find them very accurate, using thm fr my shot I mentioned above. I also own a SMK Westlake S2 .22 pistol, I find it pretty crap to be honest, the smooth barrel makes it inaccurate but i wouldnt say it was underpowered, but it is nice and simple.
    After I moved away from a place to shoot my air rifle, I tried a go at making a few guns of my own, the one in my sig is one of the move recent, I use an aircompressor to fill it and I usually just shoot chunks of potato :D. However even with that it shoots a 130ft*lbs :p.

    Any way, I hope I can contribute to the forum.

    Weihrauch,

    I don't think that potato guns require a licence.

    Technecally they should as they are way over 16.2J, but I don't certainly know for the UK.
    However in america they are certainly legal.

    Oh and nice sig, LOL
