Intro hello
« on: June 23, 2022, 10:53:54 PM »
Hi,
Im old n crusty now but really enjoyed growing up with a red ryder at 5yo, a benjamin pump Pistol at 7yo, crosman 1400 at 13yo and beeman c1 in my early teens. Lots of squirrels and birds have fallen in my youth hut I’ve lost the stomach for it.

As my kids are 9 and 11yo, I hope to give them the same experiences with airguns and powder burners as I have. The stable has grown to include a marauder, leshiy 2, more benjamins pumps, more beeman c1’s and several weihrauch springers.  Shooting optics have always been an interest and I try and keep up to date with non chicom scopes.

I’m more of a collector than a shooter nowadays and have really learned a ton from reading this forum. I appreciate those of you that are here to teach and share their experiences. Perhaps, over time, I may do the same.

Thanks!
