- My pick
- Over to you
Today is all about you readers. You get to write about the airguns you would like to see under the Christmas tree, or just get — period. There are no limits, so let your imaginations run wild and free.
I would like to get an FWB P44 target pistol. I have coveted FWB PCP target pistols since the P30 first came on the market nearly 20 years ago. They always feel just right in my hand and effortless to operate. And starting with the the P34, they have been 100 percent recoilless. Even the slight movement of the striker is cancelled by the firing mechanism, leaving you with just the sound of the shot as evidence the gun has discharged. Unless you experience it, it’s difficult to imagine.
I got the FWB model 2 as a placebo for a P44. It’s not so much that I can’t afford one — I’m just no longer in competition and would not use the gun as much as it really deserves. The model 2 is just as accurate, if not as refined, and I can’t outshoot its capability — nor could I ever. Still, the P44 lingers in my dreams as the summit of fine target pistols. It’s what comes to mind when I think of the best.
Over to you
That’s my dream airgun, now let’s hear about yours!
