*** RESPONSIBLE Airgunning *** And respect....

<< < (9/9)

Totally agree 100% with everything you said. It took me three years to convince a land owner to allow me on his land to hunt groundhogs. There has been several occasions that person(s) have shot at his cattle and horses with air rifles. That is immature and very unhuman.

We who spend MANY hours in devotion to our sport/hobby have, I believe, a different and stronger point of view and ethics about our pastime.
We try to shine a positive light on our beloved sport and TRY to prove we are true sportsmen and women. And shutter when we hear of irresponsible behavior of some while handling airguns.
Disrespectful or careless acts give the entire airgun community a black eye and bad reputation. And can also bring unwanted attention by law enforcement and government agencies.
So I will make this statement for GTA Forums. We are a membership of sportsmen and women. We will not condone disrespectful acts or careless usage of airguns by any person in order to promote themselves. It generally takes a lot of trust and talking (and maybe even written legal documents) to procure private lands to be able to shoot/pest/hunt with airguns. If you did not procure the permissions, you do not HAVE permission to violate the trust given to others. When on another's property, you are REQUIRED to show diligent care and be very respectful of all life and property. And if an accident DOES happen, report it immediately. Unreported accidents are NOT accidents. Those are acts of vandalism!!! And should be treated as such.
If I (we) hear of any GTA members violating these common sense ethics, they will be banned from this forum and should be excommunicated from our airgun community. We do not want or need folks like this representing us!!!
We are ALL tasked to be the best when representing our community. And you would want nothing less if YOU were the land owner giving permission.
Now more than ever and as always....
SAFE & Happy Shooting!!!!

Any responsible party handling an airgun capable of taking down a deer will exercise the same  degree of respect and caution required with any powder weapon.

No disrespect intended BUT Any Airgun period no matter what its power level is should be treated with the same respect as a firearm. That also includes arrows, slingshot ect.


--- Quote from: ezman604 on October 29, 2018, 04:08:45 PM ---So, to the point of this message in the first place, it is even more imperative that airgunners especially in CA represent as our community needs them to. We don't need added negative attention to our sport/hobby.

At the risk of sounding "political", it's not just California.  Remember that at voting time.
