It’s called progress mate, or capitalism if you like. Like with everything, companies innovate to beat the competition and please the customers (actually, they just want to take our money).
For me personally, I enjoy my powder burners just as much as my PCP’s and springers. But I have a weak spot for vintage match rifles and the required skill set that goes with them. Shooting is fun, in any form or shape.
