It just dawned on me that this day 30 years ago I got my first gun.
A BSA .22 Airsporter.
My parents gave it to me on Christmas Eve, I was 11 years old.
My friend at that time also got a break barrel BSA airgun. We hunted the parish on foot for years with these old airguns, no starling was safe.
My eldest is ten now, can't see him getting his mits on an airgun unsupervised any time soon.
