      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

Don't forget to identify yourself and do use your registered email address to make contact. All this is necessary, as admin must be able to identify who you are and that it is your post that you wish to edit.   Admin. will make the edit if it appears necessary.

Piston Class at World Championship

Recommended Posts

Guest airguneditor

I've been to the BFTA site but can find no mention of who was shooting what in the piston class. Does anyone know what the top 10 were shooting?

Both Norwegians were shooting a TX200 (not the SR version) and John Smeding was using a HW90, would you believe it.

Peter,

 

Are you counting Andy Kays as a Norwegian? I have nothing against SR's being used in the Pistion Class, in fact I beleive that is where they ought to be. But, it is nice to see that not everyone is using them. I have never shot a well tuned HW90, but I would like to.

Thanks to all. I took third in the piston class at the NYS Championships with an untuned HW-77k shooting kodiaks at 700fps.

Strange - there was a weird little smiley on the 'yep' post a while ago !

 

The BFTA results list is not entirely correct, 'cos the other Nordmann (Tom Øverland) was shooting a precharged BEESA.

Dave M definitely did not! He was only just back from nearly snuffing it in Holland!

Dave Mills however was using his HW77 (and not mine!;):f
