DIY de­liv­ery

Air Gunner - - Your Letters -

I have no­ticed many shoot­ers on my lo­cal range strug­gling to get sin­gle pel­lets into the load­ing tray. Some ri­fles have a very re­stricted ac­cess due to their scope mounts and some shoot­ers have prob­lems such as arthri­tis, or just plain old ‘sausage fin­ger syn­drome’. With a cou­ple of sim­ple bends and a minute’s work with a file, I have pro­duced a very work­able lit­tle tool for the job. The small point fits into the back end of the pel­let to give a pos­i­tive grip. Pel­lets can be picked straight from the tin and in­serted into the pel­let tray in an in­stant. The mod­i­fied de­sign of the tweezer tips gives a re­ally firm grip on the pel­lets so there is no chance of get­ting them the wrong way round, or drop­ping them. The tweez­ers I used came from a pound shop as part of a set, so this is a re­ally eco­nom­i­cal, as well as a very prac­ti­cal tool. Alan Charl­ish

Hello Alan That looks like a neat an­swer to a tricky prob­lem. I find get­ting pel­lets into some guns tricky too, es­pe­cially when the weather is re­ally cold and my fin­gers get numb. I’m con­stantly im­pressed with the in­ge­nious so­lu­tions to shoot­ing prob­lems that Air Gun­ner read­ers think up. Carry on the good work! Ed.
