Also "confined" at the moment - seems I damaged the Achilles tendon in my right leg putting the Interceptor on it's main stand in the garage on Saturday. I flet a sharp pain in that area at the time, but the pain got worse with time & I was hobbling about and it kept me awake over Saturday night. |
After a discourse with the NHS 111 line and a telephone discussion with an "Out of hours" GP yesterday, he wanted me to visit the local hospital to be checked out - fortunately the tendon has not ruptured completely, so elevated rest & pain killers prescribed. Feels a lot easier this morning, but off work today for further resting.
Your friend should not have been a cheap skate with that "entry level" Anglo-Spanish Gamo air rifle (one of the cheapest PCPs around) if he cannot be trusted not to fill the bore with lead - a Weihrauch HW100 would have been a better bet, as they have an "anti-double loading" mechanism that prevents putting two pellets up the spout. Better gun in all respects, though probably twice the price of the Gamo - but you get what you pay for with air rifles, just like anything else.
