Be happy to share what I know. I started in May of last year but, I rolled my sleeves up and jumped right in.

Hey Bill, I just got started and am trying to learn.  I want to be able to take my guns apart, lube them correctly and install springs etc if needed.  I sure would like to learn to make a spring compressor.  I have seen instructions online but I am definitely not the mechanical building type.  Somehow I missed those skills along the way.  Thanks

I'm in the north (Harvest).  I'm sort of new to airguns, at least adult airguns.  I had several growing up, but they got stolen.  My replacement was an 880, which I've had since the 70's, and I've never really shot it seriously.  And currently, it's not functional, but I plan on fixing that.  Given the cost of ammo, and the additional shooting opportunities afforded by airguns, I plan to get (back?) into them.

That is exactly why I am getting back into airguns myself.  Much more fun when I can shoot in the house while watching sports

I'm in Oxford AL that's east central AL just 20 miles east of Talladega super speedway. I used to work for Harley at the Talladega Test Facility Also known as TTF I was a research and development durability mechanic. loved that job till Harley packed up and moved to Arizona in 09. I been around the speedway on a motorcycle so many times that it almost lost the fun factor ( almost) it is quite a thrill to ride a Harley around the 33 degree high bank at 2 o clock in the morning with nothing but your headlight to see with and the banking comes up real quick. you have to be going over 70 mph to just start to lean the bike over, on a bagger at anything below 30 mph you would be dragging the right floorboard and muffler on the asphalt. love to tinker and mod my air guns

I'd never noticed this section of the forum. Good to see ya'll here. Not a lot of traffic, but still good to see.

I'm in Gurley, East of Huntsville, sort of.
