WHAT A LET-DOWN
Terry, we’ve spoken at shows and on the phone and you’ve always been extremely helpful and you’ve always given me good advice. However, I’m sorry to have to tell you but I think you’ve let yourself down with your recent conversion to what you aptly referred to as ‘the dark side’. I’m talking about those horrible, military, wannabe rifles that appear far too frequently in your magazine these days.
Not only do these ugly, ungainly, inelegant airguns look hideous, they surely can’t be good for our sport. If airgunners, or shooters of any kind, want to shoot these things, they should join the forces and do it properly. These guns and the mindset of those who use them have no place in our sport. Sorry about the negative rant but I think it’s time you took action and removed such guns from the pages of Airgun World and Air Gunner. DAVID CHARLTON
I’m sorry you feel that way, David, and I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree on this one. The fact is, my ‘conversion to the dark side’ came about purely due to my removing my blinkers and judging these rifles on their merits, in terms of performance and the value for money they offer. I use them for those reasons, too, and I assure you I’m no ‘wannabe’ anything. I hope that explains things, but by all means call me and we can discuss this. – Ed
Has Terry gone to the dark side? David Charlton thinks so.
