I have recently got back into shooting. I have never been anything more than a hobby shooter but when I was young (in my teens) I shot almost every day. At first a Crosman 10 pump air rifle then .22`s and a .22 Mag. I was pretty good because I shot so much. I still shot starlings as I got the chance around the house till everything grew up around us. I have found the desire to get back into it so an air rifle was the obvious choice. I got a .22 Benjamin Trail NP2. It was nice but not what I was looking for. After reading so much about the PCP`s I decided to get a .22 Benjamin Marauder and love it so far. It has only been 2 weeks so far. I plan on starting a thread on my progress so I can get good info from members and make sure I am on track.
