I used to be a .22 man!

Oh dear, .177 only effectively rules me out as I am a .22 man!

Forgive me for moving this from the sticky, I wanted that to be just for the rules.

This is a competition that has been running in the 10m format for some time now, and is an offshoot to be shot at the club or at home.

As such, it was felt that a majority of entrants would be shooters with an interest in target shooting and have predominantly .177 pistols.

Kind regards,

Yes, we should tempt Ian back from the dark side.

.177 is also better for the environment, as there is less lead!  :lol:

Oops! Sorry about that!

Ah, the trials and tribulations of following the .22 path........

Shot .177 in my 10m match days of course but have to say I much prefer the larger caliber. Not sure why.

I do realise that I am in a minority though.

Thats very kind of you sir - however the postal charges for shipping one to and fro across the country might prove prohibitive!

Might have to buy a .177 Senior / Premier

At least no one will know its not a .22 unless they inspect it closely..... :lol:

As the innards are the same, can't you just pick up a barrel?

It would upset me too much to take the .22 barrel off even for a short while  :lol:

It's a buyers market at the moment, so I am sure something suitable will come up.
