Disaster!

I've just had a call from Ronnie's to tell me that, despite what it said in their website, they're out of stock of the RS Maxus.

Down the snake, back to square 1.

Could be a blessing Mr Blerk, had you got something of Ronnie and  in the unlikely event there being issues down the line,it's all phoning up , nothing face to face. Where as if you shop local,people get to know you and you'll find everyone in the shop, customers and staff alike will always chip in with there twopenneth should advice be needed.

 Mexborough gun shop ,on the few occasions I've been there, has always given me positive vibes.

What about a Walther Century?

About 260 or so scope included which is pretty good optic wise or the GT if you want a synthetic stock.

Well! The deed is done.

I called in at my local shop on the way home from work and walked away with a rifle.

I was incredibly detailed in my demands : "I'd like a decent rifle with a decent silencer, decent scope and a bag for under 300 quid, please. Oh, and make it a .22 because I'm manly."

So off goes chappy, takes five minutes to select a gun, a couple of minutes to select a mod and five minutes to select a scope. Five more minutes and the scope and mod are fitted.

Sitting on the rack before me was a Walther Terrus .22, with Uramex backdraft mod and a BSA MD 3-9x50 WR Essencial scope and a bag.

"That looks nice," I said.

"That's 295 to you," says chappy.

"Throw in a tin of pellets and you've got a deal," says I. I'd already clocked that the Terrus had a 245 ticket on it so I was reasonably confident I was getting a deal.

"That's with the pellets included already," says chappy.

"Alright then. Let's 'try before I buy' and you might have a deal."

You see, at this point, thanks to the planeteers that have guided me over the past week or so, I knew that Walther was a decent make and that the Terrus was a decent model.

So chappy takes me to their test range, dials the scope in for me and hands me the gun.

No word of a lie, I hit a 30mm target at 25 yards with my first shot. And I think I got about 8 or 9 out of the dozen I fired. Chappy even gave me a few tips and pointers. Much appreciated.

What a lovely gun! Recoil but not too much. Substantial but not too heavy. The scope is nice and clear (although I have to get used to using it as I've been brought up on shotguns). And the silencer does what it says on the tin.

And speaking of tins, I got 500 RWS Superdome Field Line pellets.

I THINK I've got a good deal.

I DEFINITELY got good service. I think...............

I can't wait for Friday when I'll get to the range to really try it out.

If I knew how to do it I'd upload some pics.
..........so I packed up and went to the pub.

Congrats!  I keep reading and hearing the Terrus is a nice rifle.

I liked it.  It definitely meets my requirements.

And I liked that the guy took a bit of time to choose the mod and scope. Like he wasn't just passing me off with the cheap rubbish. I think his name is Adam.

He said the discount I got was about  80 or  90.

Everything you need for a decent price :). Rws superdomes are great pellets and not too expensive.  Which shop did you use?
 
I guess it's just a waiting game now  whilst you get to the range.

Happy shooting. :)

I went to  South Yorkshire Airguns  (http://www.southyorkshireairguns.co.uk).

Quite local so I can call back easily if I have issues (beyond the mental ones).

I did.

I thought it might be more 'durable'.
