do you even really shoot? like water is going to damage the rifle.. :roll:
Do you even have a sense of humour? Or are you just out to bully everyone all the time?


I don't bully anyone.. I tell it like it is. Rain is not going to ruin your rifle.. Take it out and shoot it, have fun with it and don't worry about the rain.. Water will not damage it, it's not like you're going to be fully submerging it under water.. When you're done shooting wipe it down with a oiled cloth.. Once you do it and see that it will survive the rain, you won't worry so much next time..

Actually, rain can melt your airgun......

:P :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously though - I have shot in the pouring rain - something that I swore I would never do - at the Canadian FT Nationals a couple years or so back.
After day 1, I had to remove the action from the stock, and not only was it wet inside the stock inletting, there was water on the mainspring, and throughout the trigger mechanism. (FWB 300S) A blow dryer was used to dry things out, and then an application of oil to the appropriate points in preparation for day 2. After day 2, the gun was completely disassembled, cleaned, and all fresh lubes applied to avoid any problems.

There is simply no way that I will subject a gun worth several times the value of that 30 year old FWB to that, especially when I do have other options.
I guess it's just the "collector" mentality at work.... :) .

I should have known I was going to get a response from you Len LOL Does FWB print a warning on their rifles since they can't be used in any weather but fair weather? "Caution - This airgun is for use in fair weather only"

It started out as a good thread, until it got rained on.

Neil, the Fudd is always on the first Saturday of November, the 5th this year.

Nope.
I can only speculate that the reason that FWB did not do so is that they credit their clientele with having the good sense to come in out of the rain...... :lol: :lol: :lol: .

It shouldn't be...If someone doesn't want to shoot their gun in the rain that is there choice/business, and if rvd wants to shoot his FWB in the rain, all the power to him :lol:

As I always say "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should" :wink:

OK now lets get back to the reason this post was started.I'll be debuting the new BT65 in her beautiful camo with as simple Hawke 4x12x40 AO scope.Also it does come with a lovely raised orange letter strap.There may be a second there in simple black.
