Air Gunner - - Your Letters -

Just a quick ‘thank you’, from me to you and all in­volved in the bril­liant mag­a­zines you pro­duce. I am a South African who moved to the UK six months ago - orig­i­nally from Cape Town, now liv­ing in Brack­nell. I owned five air ri­fles be­fore the ‘big move’; Walther LGV Com­pe­ti­tion Ul­tra, Weihrauch HW50S, QB79, Gecado 25 and a Hat­san AT 4410, all in .177. I thor­oughly enjoy the mag­a­zines ev­ery month. It’s my only fix from the with­drawal symp­toms I’m suf­fer­ing. I saved up for a new ri­fle twice al­ready, only to have the funds used for

more im­por­tant things - car re­pairs, school clothes etc. I really hope to get back into the shoot­ing scene as soon as pos­si­ble. My son (11) and I were both mem­bers of an HFT club, back in South Africa. He was really good at it and was Un­der 12 cham­pion for two years in a row. Hunt­ing with an air ri­fle is il­le­gal in SA, so for me to see all the pic­tures and ar­ti­cles about hunt­ing makes me suf­fer even more, be­cause I did a lot of hunt­ing with cen­tre­fire ri­fles. It was a yearly oc­ca­sion in hunt­ing sea­son to go on our hunt for spring­buck, oryx, kudu and eland. Thanks once again! Look­ing for­ward

to the next month’s pub­li­ca­tion. Brian Ho­p­ley
