A superstar.Rotating breeched underlever.Bit of a twang if i remember but i didnt know any better and took my first rabbits with it.Had a tasco Apollo scope on board.Hankered after a goldstar but they were way too dear for a 17 yr old.

Not my first gun though.That was a Harrington Gat from the little old toy shop in the village,fired darts or spuds.Followed by my first proper airgun, a webley vulcan.

A Cadet major in 1965, it was already about 10 years old then but I used to knock half-pennies off the top of gate posts in my old father in laws small holding.  I still have it, and it's still accurate!!

but half pennies were about 4 inch diameter in them days  /sslaughhhh/

A .177 light pattern that my grandpa gave me when I was about 14. I restored it with the help of a local gunsmith at the time (1985) and Ive recently just done the internals again. Its been in the family for four generations now and will never ever be sold.
