After a long absence from blogging, I'm back...

Did exactly the same thing as the last post and forgot I was blogging, until I recieved a letter in the post the other day from Google telling me I have earned a voucher to spend on Google promoting my blog. Anyways, I lost the letter, so that won't be getting used (at least until it turns up) but I have since used the HW97k I promised to review in a previous post, so I'll get that review up as soon as I've written it.

Forgot I had a blog...

As the title says, I totally forgot I had a blog. Will probably post tomorrow. Review of the HW97KT.

Sorry all

Had my internet cut off because of 'breaching fair useage policy', so that's why I haven't blogged lately. Will post a few more reviews tomorrow after I write them up, cheers.

Sad News

Couldn't find anyone willing to lend me any pre-WWII rifles to shoot, they said they'd lend me them for exhibition. I still am not sure how I was supposed to review the gun just by looking at it...

Anyways, I'll get this blog back on track within the next few days, and review some modern air rifles instead.

I know this is a reviews blog, but I've decided due to interest I'm gonna do a 'brief history' post about air rifles later on, whilst I desperately try and acquire a pre-WWII air rifle, haha.

Any requests on what air rifle I should review next? I can get pretty much any rifle to review, provided it's either .177 or .22, and between £100- £1000.

Walther CP88 4'' review

My first thought when firing this pistol was how balanced it felt, it felt exactly like a pistol should - an extension of your arm. It feels light but not too light, meaning aiming is very accurate and quick.

The 'Walther CP88' logo is machined into the metal, whereas the CP99 has poor quality laser printing. The overall feel when looking and shooting this gun was 'quality'.

At 10 yards I was getting inch groupings, which is very good for a CO2 pistol. It also has adjustable power, which comes in handy depending on the ranges of the targets.

The CP88 is probably the best air pistol I've ever had the pleasure of shooting, it feels natural holding it in your hands, there are many on the second hand market for £80 - £150, and they are great fun to shoot, very hard to put down.

This fantastic piece of German engineering gets top marks from me, 10/10.
