1   No.
2   They're a visual monstrosity.

My feelings exactly.


Being an old git, I much prefer traditional/classically designed airguns.

Well, I thought that there'd be a slight difference of opinion about bullpups.

It seems that there are a lot of "traditionalists" (some might say "old farts" but I never would) who object to them purely on looks and aesthetics.

And Shakey has actually considered the practicalities and usefulness of them.

We're not talking about women here, Planeteers, we're talking airguns. You're not picking a wife but a tool to do a job (I have braced myself for a torrent of witty ripostes!!).

@ Those that object to them; can you never imagine a situation where you'd think "What I need now is a shorter gun with more of the weight at the stock?"
