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
Hello Brian I’m glad you enjoy the magazine. Have you considered joining a club? Mine is in Bisley, just a short drive from Bracknell. We have loan rifles that you could use until you’ve had time to save up for your own, so you could get some trigger time soon. We have lots of space, tons of targets and plenty of juniors, so your son will fit right in. Come down us see us soon! www. bfto.org.uk Ed.
