In me and the stepsons collection we have a crossman 1322 pistol , webley excel .22 (for stepson) . And can borrow a weihrauch hw77 (.22) from my dad, i want my own gun and thinking .177 because i wish to join our local boston lincolnshire hft,what guns do you suggest , im thinking a hw77 like me dads, tx200, or bsa lightning , or any others you suggest guys , you can buy the full package with a scope from the airguncentre , or is it best to get the parts seperate .I will be totally honest and say i picked this shop so i can pay 12 monthly instalements .

Next thing what would be a good springer for the boy , his excel he can shoot extremely well so is he ok with this or does he need something better to be competitive , he aint that big so a lighter springer would be needed this is why the webley is good at the minute thanks in advance .

You won't go far wrong with any HW or TX to be honest. The TX is better out the box being semi tuned and slightly better engineered. If you wish to try both I have a HW98 Dave Hall tuned and a TX200 both in .177 The TX is still better come to the club and you are welcome to try both.

The son is another matter a Hw99 takes some beating and would last him a long time as people really rave about them but he may struggle to cock it?

The other altenative would be a HW25 which is lightweight easy to cock but unfortunately not full power. I fear your son would out grow this fairly quickly.

What about a 2nd hand AA S200 PCP for the son? Superbly accurate and lightweight? We have one as a club gun that he could try?

Without bugging you for info , if i bought the hw99s and i shot it would it be a competitive springer, heres my thinking i use this for 6-12months then i upgrade and pass it on to stepson ? Or do i jump straight on a heavier underlever ummmm ?
