    I think its a log in page for a forum that I don't belong to (even though I do have a BSA). Give us more clues. JC

    it is a picture of a dead deer (kid?) supposedly shot with an air rifle (HW90 in .22 using a 38 grain solid slug)

    The BSAog are only interested in their foreign ,mainly, made sir guns with a BSA label on them. They have no knowledge not interest in real BSA's.

    That would pretty much sum up their ideas.....

    not entirely true, as most if not all of their PCP's are made in Birmingham, the forum covers all types of BSA air rifle including vintage and modern, not sure where you are going with the disdain ?

    I cannot remember who made it but I think either the french or the belgians had an air rifle capable of killing a man in the 1800's. I can remember reading about it, but cannot for the life of me think where! Old age creeping on again

    It's feasable to shoot deer humanely if you can produce enough energy from a large enough projectile, but I suppose this means some twonk with a BSA Meteor Super (my first rilfe by the way, 40 years ago) is going to try and shoot deer

    Edit; Not french or belgian, Austrian! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girandoni_Air_Rifle
    In 1780!

    Even earlier ft. 1655 - 1704 http://www.beemans.net/collection.htm

    IIRC captured soldiers found in possession of one of these 'silent' rifles during the Napoleonic (or maybe American Civil War???) were invariably killed - such was their effect on moral. Lewis and Clark had a Girandoni with them on their travels, good snippet here, http://www.isegoria.net/2008/10/lewi...eir-air-rifle/

    Mine too, about the same time. Still had it up until a couple of years ago when it was nicked form my workshop
    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A f**kin bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?"

    Thank you Orion, my brain was really not working and you found exactly the piece I had read before. I have now bookmarked it and hopefully will not forget it so easily again! Top man
