One or two but quite a lot less than at least a couple of people I know, most of mine are in my signature.

Hadn't you heard, he who dies with most toys wins ;)

So, after much  online searching, I may have found a solution to my small problem.

If my local gun shop, doesn't phone me as promised tomorrow. I shall place an order with an online company (pellpax) has any one had any dealings with them? I also save myself 70 to boot  ;D ;D

I wouldn't receive the gun until next weekend, but that isn't to much of a problem as I'm off on holiday in my tin tent for a week.

So fingers crossed and a fair wind, I shall have a gun (in principle at least) tomorrow.

Whoop, whoop.

Guess who's got a gun, I pick it up either next Friday afternoon, depending what time I get back from Wales. Or Saturday, either way pellets will hopefully be going down range come Sunday.

Good to know you are sorted Steve, as I was going to suggest giving Keens Guns in Bridgend a call.

I know they hold massive stock levels and so would be sure to have a .22 HW95 available, plus I'm a personal friend of the owner, Dai, who has very kindly supplied rifles to a number of members on here, at VERY good prices too.


Where in Wales are you going Steve............and is it business or pleasure (mind you, even if it is for business, it's ALWAYS a pleasure to visit Wales, like, innit)? 8) ;D

Off to near Llanbedra for a week's relaxing break.

Yes Seagate, it's the 95k.
