I'm in Paint Rock, east of Huntsville. I have a HiPac hpa 2260 (with Hill pump to fill it), Benji 392, and a few other airguns. Got back into airguns when .22 ammo dried up, then got bit hard by the airgun bug. ;D

Live not far apart.  I'm in Huntsville, AL, just off Winchester Road.  "Red Ryder" as a child, only Crosman 760 for last 30 years.  Wanting to get into AG's, pneumatic, not sure which.

Good to see you here, Jim. The older 760 is a nice AG.

Hey all, I'm in Birmingham , have a couple of springers. I went to Heflin's airgun range last week and had a blast even though I was there by myself. To anyone within driving range its's a cool place to shoot.

I might have to check it out next time I'm in the area. Is there an airgun shop onsite or nearby?

I'm not from around there but I doubt it, it's a state or county park with little around it , still I found it worth the drive to have a covered area , tables and metal targets to shoot at. It's about half way to Atlanta from me, others may know of possible shops. They hold field target shooting competitions across the street in the woods.I have not been to one yet but I did check out the targets and don't think I would have much luck with my rifles and poor shooting. How about Huntsville , I lived up there for about a year but can't recall anywhere that carried much for air guns.

It's my first PCP, won't be the last, I wanted a large caliber so had to do a PCP, I can see others in my future.

If I ever make the plunge; I have a feeling .25 would be my minimum caliber requirement. Hopefully by the there will be a greater selection of ammo...

It was between the .25 and the 9mm for me,I get 14 good shots off a full fill which is about 160 to 170 pumps with the Hill pump,I can go a third mag. but that just means more pumping. Just got the 90ci tank (small) Im not sure how well its going to fill my gun, had a leak the first time and lost about 700psi before I caught it,I was at the range with ear protection on,, Im sure im going to end up with a smaller cal. like the .25, probably a different Evanix.

Like Sciguy guy says you all need to come up to Heflin Al this Saturday 1/10/16 for our Ft match and fun shooting after the match as we welcome new airgunners and hold matches the first Saturdays of each month. It looks to be a wet day this Saturday but if we don't shoot on the FT range we will usually shoot at the sight in range just for fun and have targets out to 100 yards to test your skills on .

Sciguy ( Mike), this is Mike that usually shoots with Loren and Gabe at the matches so shoot me a PM when you can and we can talk awhile and hope to see you Saturday.

I am not sure as the largest I have seen shot is 25s on the sight in range but I imagine as long as you can hit your target or a tree for a good backstop I don't see an issue with larger than a 25 as we have a 100 yard sight in range with a thick tree line about at the 120 yard range.

The FT range is limited to a max of 22 fpe so as not to destroy the targets since the hunter class is a max limit of 20 fpe for the guns used in that class.

So as long as the pellets/bullets stop at a spinner or solid target that you would furnish I don't see an issue but can contact our president to find out for sure and post back here with that info.
