I went with variable pump because full power isn't always practical where I live so I wanted the ability to dial it down. I like the idea of a break action or CO2. I had CO2 pistols when I was a kid.
Do pellets make that much difference?
Yep, I’m thrilled with that kind of accuracy, and the Red Dot seems to hold a zero too. I tried a couple of scopes on it but they wouldn’t hold zero, even though they were supposed to be air gun scopes.Glad ya got that out of storage and tried Z3! Yeah, some airguns, like powder-burners, have a preference.
Most of what I use is fine with either H&N or JSB pellets. Try different sizes/weights too. But if you're doing 1" groups, sounds as if you're set!
I DO like the cleaning/shooting rest - do tell me more about it, please!
I know that most of you like to take the pi- josh me about the rather odd laws on guns here in UK. It might come as a surprise to you to learn that in the Ould Sod, the Emerald Isle [whatever] things are even wackier than you might suppose.
