Well... this has to be the ultimate possession for the airgunner who has everything. Everything, that is, except the most over-engineered, beautifully finished, luxurious pellet tin! And if you think I'm being a bit sarcastic, you're wrong - I think this is an absolute must-have...

It's called the Pellcan - and it holds your ammo in such style that you'll be the envy of all your shooting mates... who will probably end up buying one anyway!

Machined from high-quality aluminium, the Pellcan is available in various anodised finishes and features a screw-top lid that's sealed against the elements with an internal O-ring - though there are two external O-rings fitted, purely for decorative purposes.

It comes in two sizes - 2.9in or 3.9in diameters. The latter's best for holding .22 ammo - but so you know exactly what's inside, the Pellcan features a neat magnetic 'medallion' roundel on which is engraved the shape and calibre of a pellet to signify the contents.

Two are supplied - .177 and .22 - with a roundhead inscribed on one face, and a flat-head on the other. (Bit tricky if you shoot points or hollow-points in .20 calibre, I know - but hey, even the ultimate pellet tin can't have everything!)

Price? Well... let's just say it ain't cheap, so I'll let you go and look it up. Go on, you know you want to...

For the record: Pellcan's US website is here - while you can obtain them in the UK from Intershoot, tel. +44 (0) 8443 180000.

Me on the Airgun Gear Show

I was recently invited onto Giles Barry's Airgun Gear show - and I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed myself. 

A nice easy-going interview with the big man himself, followed by a bit of a surprise; I was collared into taking the Airgun Gear Balloon Shoot Challenge - and you can see how I did in the video below (courtesy of AirgunTV).

By the way, I think Giles' show is the best airgun entertainment on the web! If you want to watch the whole of Episode 5, you can do so here.
