I've been shooting airguns since I had a Daisy pump in 1963. Then Daisy 1894s after the pump broke, and Sheridans all as a kid. As an adult I've had many, in no particular order: Fwb 80 and a couple of Chinese Fwb 60 clones one a SS2 and the other a Titan. Also Daisy 717,737, and 777; Crosmans of many varities both pumpers and co2, 3 or so Beeman/Webley Hurricanes, HW 45, Gletcher Nagant,  and a number of rifles as well, both side lever and under lever springers, and co2 rifles, and 1 compressed air rifle. All the rifles are scoped and the hand guns mostly have red dots to augment their original iron sights which don't seem to work well with my 70 year old eyes. I still enjoy shooting these but suspect the clock is running out on shooting the springers due to arthritis. I like to read others experiences and glean info I don't know about the air guns I still enjoy.
