CARDINAL SIN …
I’m really enjoying Airgun World these days. I really think you have the mix almost right. It’s great that you do not sit on your laurels and are constantly looking to improve. This is now the only airgun magazine I have on subscription.
I say ‘almost right’ because I think this month you have committed the cardinal sin of not actually containing a rifle review. I expect to see one in every edition! A review of gun packages was not the same; after all, you did not actually review them in the way you would normally conduct a review on the gun.
I do have a suggestion for the magazine: I’d like to follow on the theme from the Lyme disease coverage. I’ve been eaten alive by mozzies on a number of occasions, not to mention the post-suffering. How do your contributors manage this issue? Please share their best practice, which sprays/creams or electronic means do they use to protect themselves out there, and when they do get bitten – as they ultimately will – how do they manage it post-bite? DAVID
… OR MAYBE NOT?
I owe you a huge apology. I should have finished reading the magazine first. I thought you had replaced a gun review with the complete package review. I should have known better. You were completing the Webley Mastiff review – speaking of which, more on oiling the stock, please. How about an article? DAVID
No need for any apology, David, and thanks for the kind words. As for mozzies, I bet our readers have plenty of ideas they’ll share next month. Oiling stocks, eh? Great suggestion. I’m sure Pete Evans will reveal his methods for us. Watch out for that one! - Ed
David would like to see an article on how best to oil a gunstock. We think that’s a great idea.
