I have a few CO2 pistols, and they are much more challenging than rifles, but great fun. The biggest problem is the noise. I used one - one shot! - in the garden, and spent the rest of the afternoon waiting for the boys and girls from CO19 to come and kick my door down. 5mith

For once I actually planned ahead and when lock-down looked imminent I went to my local gun shop to stock up on supplies...and prepare for a little garden shooting.

One daughters already has a GAMO Pt85 but I don't get on with it so bought a Umarex .177 Browning Buckmark

Put a cheap(ish) reddot on it and so really enjoyed putting 20 or 30 pellets a day through it.

As an aside, my other daughters Crosman Ratcatcher has turned out to be a great little garden rifle.....bought 50 CO2 capsules and I'm already running out!

I have a nice Section 5, six shot revolver. At one time, I had it fitted with a laser set for 10m. The main use is dispatching vermin in traps, however it also makes a nice one for some target practice.

I'll try to get a picture posted ...

I have an all steel CZ-75 BB air pistol. It's OK for beer can plinking in the back garden. It's the only shooting I've done since March.

Aye, I read "all steel CZ75 BB" and immediately wondered the same....
