Hi, 

My name is Louis and I'm a 31 year old Dutch veterinarian and airgun enthusiast now living in England. 
It is great to have found this forum; I think that New Zealand is a great country for airguns, with the great collector Trevor Adams being one of my "hero's"! (cinedux.com). I have not visited NZ yet, but a Dutch friend who lives in Kerikeri says that I should book a ticket asap - he's loving it there. 

My main interest is pumpers and CO2 guns. With Crosman, Sheridan and Sharp as my favourite brands. 
I also like BSA's, mostly the Meteor and the John Bowkett designs. 

Currently I am trying to do research on Sharp as a brand, its founder Kensuke Chiba as a person, and the Sharp U-SL as a gun (what a beautiful little thing, and so interesting, even more so as there is practically no info to be found!). 

Here are some photos from my humble collection (yes I like boxes lol). That's me with one of my favourites: my Sears 180. A great little shooter. 
I have just been through a phase of selling less loved guns, and I am back in this dangerous collecting mode now... But it's a lot of fun. 

Many thanks! 
Louis

Hi Louis,

Welcome here. Sorry i'm late to the party, but that's a nice little collection there. I have a soft spot for single stroke pneumatic pistols or rifles. I have a Daisy 953, and a Daisy 717. It's nice to be able to shoot at home with them.

I look forward to hearing more.

Cheers
Paul.
