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.
