although i'm still thinking about a co2 gun
i like the simplicity of not carrying any support gear. if i won or was given a PCP, i honestly would sell it or trade it. to me it's like owning a diesel in a cold climate. too much effort.
i also get a kick (well, literally, too) from shooting a springer. i feel that the R9 i got from nced is about the nicest gun i may ever own, and i'll be quite happy to shoot it forever.
last of all, if i am up against PCPs and i do well with my springer, it just makes my day.
