Howdy Friend.

Franky comes from American huh?........not Hollywood by any chance, is it??  (There's a joke in there somewhere!! ;))


Welcome to the good ship Planet Airgun forum Mucker...there's one or two of your Countrymen on here already.

Lots of fun and banter goes on here...but as British and U.S. humour is slightly different...if there's anything you don't understand/get, then just ask!!!

In between all the jesting...we even get to talk about airguns sometimes!!!  ;D ;D

So don't be shy, join in and get posting...we're a friendly bunch, and won't bite.

atb, Gareth. ;)

Hello & Welcome Frankie

Nice to have a different point of view on Airguns which will probably make us all jealous of the assorted guns you have to pick from all above the holy grail of 12ftlb's  8)

Hi Franky and a BIG Welcome to the Planet Forum!
Sorry I am a bit late Buddy, we have had some unprecedented bad weather here today with Massive forked lightning and torrential and I mean torrential rain, mass flooding around (floating cars as well!) as the drains couldnt cope, had to bale out my little caravan as the roof vent blew off and everything inside was wet, I have had to do a temp repair on the vent but the top part has gone somewhere over the north sea so I will have to see if I can get a replacement!

Franky is a great chap and I am proud to call a friend and am honoured that he thinks likewise of me, I haven't managed to persuade him to buy an Airsporter yet, who knows, I may succeed yet!  ::)
Really is good to have you on the planet Franky, I am certain with your quiet and easy style, you will fit right in here, it's less formal and easy going than some other forums I could (but will not) mention and the guys on here are as good as they get.
Thanks for joining bud, this is getting to be the best forum on the net!
Get posting Franky, lets have some of your great photos of the airgun shows you go to, oh and congratulations on the birth of your new grandson!  :)

all the best buddy!
