    If it runs at the legal limit yes, but if it's only a low power gun say 6ft/lbs then no.

    I got the gun new 2 to 3 years ago but only shoot 20 to 30 pellets
    in that time so i think it shall still shoot at the limit

    im actually shooting with a hw35 at the minute myself, not taking anything to chancey as I havent even got a scope fitted at the minute!! check the power on it first as I was told this one was running at about 15ft/lbls (I am licensed for it dont worry :p) but turned out to be doing only 7.5ft/lbs... but that wasnt much use to the crow that I had to go a chasin' after, despite a pretty clean shot to the head/neck

    ALWAYS CHECK POWER FIRST, DONT TRUST ANYONE :p

    Well that is what I am shooting with at the moment however I am using the .177 version.

    My gun says 12ft*lbs but how would I test its power without a chrony? Do you think a shooting club has a chrony?

    I think shooting clubs test your guns just to see your
    going buy the rules of the club

    You can test the power by shooting at a target from two distances, it is in the chairgun software.

    POER testing

    Weihrauch, how do you know that homemade cannon shoots at over 100 ft. lbs. if you haven't got a chrono?
