As many of you know who have followed my scribbles over the last 28 years or so, know I love to use air rifles the most, although I use every caliber of gun there is from center fire and rim fire rifles to shotguns of all calibers and including sub 12ftlb air rifles and FAC air rifles, now over the years I have tried so many great air rifles from all sorts of manufacturers each and every one of them have a special place in my gun room, but since 1989 there is one make one manufacturer that has a special place in my heart too, of course its the awesome Air Arms air rifle company an English company I might add, the gun that first captured my eye and my heart was the Air Arms Camargue a spring side lever powered air rifle that was as sweet on the eye as it was to hold and as deadly as a rattle snake with her strike, thus began my love for all things Air Arms well the guns that is.
Like I say the Camargue captured my eye and my heart and my imagination, I have written about that sweet little feisty lady many times both in my articles and my best selling hunting books, the books tell of tales of me waging a momentous war on my local vermin population (available from www.theoutpostshop.co.uk) so go buy some of my books and help our futer generations as all the money from the books go to Pass it On Young Sports (www.pass-it-on-young-sports.org.uk) and thus we help continue the field sports what we love.
So what air rifle have they sent you I can hear you ask, well they sent me the amazing Air Arms TDR (take down rifle) in a lovely hard case style case that looked like a lap top bag as young sport Jake said, it has two nice shoulder carry straps a handle and the Air Arms logo on the front with a good strong quality zip around the out side, on the inside its molded perfectly for the disassembled air rifle to fit in with a scope attached so once zeroed you wont have to keep re zeroing.
Well like I say I had this sweet little gun zeroed before the first magazine needed re loading, seeing Jake’s excitement and knowing full well he wanted to have a go on the TDR I loaded the mag and said here you boy your turn before you burst with excitement, if you see the video and pics attached to this blog mere words just don’t do his smile justice as he was like a Cheshire Cat, I must admit I was too as she was quite simply a sweetheart to shoot and I could not wait to get out verminating with her, Both Jake and I had a lot of fun that night trying to out shoot each other with the TDR.
