Best Is­sue this year

Air Gunner - - Your Letters -

I just wanted to say a big thank you for what I think has been Air Gun­ner’s best is­sue this year. Like most 40- odd-year- old gun­ners out there, I cut my teeth on the springer and read­ing the Novem­ber springer spe­cial brought back many fond mem­o­ries of hunts past - and a much needed smile to my face, so thank you. I hope the springer is­sue in­spires a new gen­er­a­tion of young guns out there and if any­one wants yet more spring in­spi­ra­tion then please point them in the di­rec­tion of a copy of Air Ri­fle Hunt­ing by the leg­endary John Dar­ling. Thanks again Mick Kirk­land

Hello Mick I’m happy you en­joyed the spe­cial is­sue. Like you, I grew up shoot­ing noth­ing but spring- pis­ton guns and loved them dearly. In fact, it’s a great sad­ness to me, even now, that I sold my tuned HW77K when I was short of money. It was stun­ningly ac­cu­rate; so much so, that I’ve sel­dom seen its 50- yard group sizes bet­tered, even by mod­ern PCP com­pe­ti­tion guns. Ed.

Many peo­ple love their spring guns and our springer specail edi­tion proved pop­u­lar
