Since Jo and I are house bound, I scratched an itch I've had for years for a quality air rifle. I've got a couple pellet guns but I wanted a tack driver. Twice I put a nice new TX200 in the shopping cart online but didnt drop the hammer but when I came across this old FWB 300 for a decent price I couldnt resist. Its actually a 10 meter competition gun but I took the open sights off and mounted a cheapie 4x16 scope and now spend my evenings shooting flies at 25 yards... (off a rest of course). Its not pretty and its hard to tell how many pellets have been thru it but its quiet, low velocity and deadly accurate. Its the most fun I've had in my back yard in years. Just call me the fly assassin.
