OK I am convinced.

Rather than a detuned gun, I am going to get her a HW30S in .22, and I am sure I can enjoy it a little while I wait for a PAL. I never owned a .22 before but I guess it can't be that bad.

It costs more but it seems to be better in every way, weighs less, easier to cock, better quality, and I have been reading about unhappy people with the 240. I am kinda heart broken. I remember visiting the Diana dealer as a kid was the best thing I could possibly do. I used to get their brochures and read about their guns. *sigh*

HW I guess can be my new Diana lol.

How popular are pellet guns here? I only see old Canadian tire ones people use for pest control although what I read says it is not allowed. Lol.

I am in Antigonish.

I mean probably every house here, has some sort of airgun.

Airguns are not on the approved list for small game in Nova Scotia, but it doesn't stop people from pesting with airguns.

Must be more popular there than here! It is kinda boonies here, I think they skip the pellet gun and give their kids 22s. I found 1 guy with a Diana after chatting him up that he has had for years and said he never used much. I think hes had it for over 10 years so much is relative. It looks like it is used a lot more than it sounds but I have no idea. It's rough from sitting for years.

Growing up they were common, it was nothing to see people in an open field with a pellet gun and target, but it was a different country.

I was told a story here that a guy that moved here from Europe went to the local park with a pellet gun and target, he was reported and arrested, his pellet gun was taken for ballistic testing and he got a fine. He doesn't play with a pellet gun anymore lol.

Now I wouldn't go to the local park but if it was in Cyprus where I grew up, no one would think anything of it lol. Maybe times have changed, I am not 14 anymore, I am in my 40s.

I live in the middle of nowhere, I can't see a neighbor in sight, and they won't hear a thing either, closest neighbor is like 1/2 a km away. I can't wait to start shooting soon. I hope I enjoy it as much as I used to.
