  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

Cheers Turnip! ( Howl's moving castle, sick movie huh?! :) )
The synthetic stock is the way to go I think, The walnut stock (or whatever wood its made out of) feels nice, but seems heavier. plus the synthetic looks so damn tactical :D S.A.S style!

haha yep! I'm just a big kid really!
Yea I think you're right about synthetic stock, particularly from a practical point of veiw, I've got a HW100k and its a beaut, but I do worry about scratches and dents sometimes!

Haha! It's a sweet little spot, found it on this site called something like 'derlict places uk' we dug out a load of bullets from the sand where the targets used to be placed, i polished a few of em up ;) Do you know if its actually okay to be shooting up there? Cus I think it might be owned by a farmer or something :S!

Yea I understand what you mean, you don't want to damage the wood, I don't really worry about that much with mine, I think its cus its black and texturized so it isn't as easy to make out scratches and dents! I checked out the HW100k looks nice mate!

Hey mick, thanks for the heads up, I thought it was farmers land! I think ill just join a local air rifle shooting range, Instead of running the risk of getting shot by a crazed dartmoor farmer!

haha nice! That was the first time i've been up there. Definite atmosphere I know what you mean, I'd quite like to find out more on the history of the place. I know it was used in the 50's as a shooting range for the marines but can't find much else... :) glad you enjoyed the posts!
