Air Pistols

Postby ian johnstone on Sat Oct 18, 2008 6:52 pm

Our mutual friend 'troubledshooter' recently mentioned a book that might appeal to some people here...

Hope that works :oops:

After all, we all remember our first air pistol :twisted:

I could spend happy hours reading that, even though I have no interest in Air Pistols any more...
I think.

Sorry to hear that John - I think my Dad did something similar with a pocket Knife I was given aged 9 (put in a drawer until I was 11, but I never saw it again :shock: ).

The book has had a very good review in Feb 2009 Airgun World :D

The first air pistol I bought was a brand new Crosman 1322 pump, I was still living with my parents and I'd just started working.
My father had taught us to shoot at an early age, he said he used to shoot a great deal when he was younger, anyway, I put a target up on the house wall and proceeded to pepper it. My father came out to show an interest saying that in one of the shed drawers he should still have his old Webley junior 177. I laughed and said I'd take him on any-day, he didn't reply, but went to the shed and returned with said Webley. He cocked and loaded it, then without saying another word threw an empty cigarette packet into the air and shot it with the pistol. I retrieved it, inspected the hole and said "you jammy devil", still not saying a word, he cocked and loaded the Webley and again threw the packet into the air, again hitting it with a pellet. :shock:

I knew he used to shoot, but that impressed the hell out of me.

No, not John Wayne mate, he was "old school", children were to be seen and not heard etc, what he said was law and woe betide anyone who incured his wrath. I still bear the scars. :shock:
