Hi,

Have had the old break barrels since I was like 8 years old. Now that I am just a little older (50"s) lol, looking at getting a PCP. Love the accuracy that these new rifles are able to get. Being a lefty I am really looking before I comment to anything. Would love the FX Impact or the new FX light even HW100 or something in that class. I normally buy things new but have been looking at the for sale sight on here and see a lot of guns for sale. Might have to look at buying second hand if the deal is right. Love all shooting sports everything from air to cowboy mounted shooting. Thanks

Brgds

Welcome to CAF, as a intro to pcp, try the Artemis pcp by Wes and CSS, they are very good for bang for buck.

Welcome to the forum BBQ66!

For sure you've found a great source for quality pre-owned PCP rifles and a wealth of information / experience.

Most certainly the selection of air rifles we could purchase "way back when", pales in comparison to what's available today. Given some of the ideas you already have, I'd take a close look at Daystate product as well -those Brits really know how to build a quality PCP. Every manufacture / model has it's pros and cons -and budget comes into play as well, at least for most of us. Yeah, right ....... once you get started, there's no going back!

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding my current line up of air rifles.

As a courtesy to other members, you might consider adding a location to your profile.

Cheers!

Welcome to the zoo... from another older guy!

If you think you'll be serious about the new hobby, might just as well buy-once-cry-once. It will be cheaper in the long run.

Couldn't Agree More! I live by that philosophy.
