Title: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: airgunwarriors on July 25, 2014, 08:27:26 PM
NOTICE TO ALL GTA MEMBERS:

You are gladly invited to join us here in the South Carolina Low-Country for 2-days of nothing but Air-Gunning, Air-Gunning and more Air-Gunning at "Als' Low Country Fun-Shoot"! ;D

The event is scheduled for Saturday the 2nd and Sunday the 3rd from sun-up to sun-down!

The Fun-shoot will take place at Al's (OleTomCat's) property out in the country, so there is no water or electrical hook-ups, so for those that would like to camp out or bring an RV, you must bring your own water and power supply!

There will be some contests and plenty of plinking targets to shoot at!

This will be a great time to show off your Air-Gun Arsenal and check out the Air-Guns of others!

It is advisable that you bring your own folding table, tent/canopy and chairs!

For directions or a map on how to get there, please PM OleTomCat/Al and he'll send you a map!

For more details, please PM myself or Al (OleTomCat) and we'll get right back to you asap! :D

Happy/Safe Shooting,

Al.

You talkin' about shootin' around Summerville? Great! I grew up in Charleston around where I-526 crosses Dorchester Rd. I know thw area. I just bought a Torpedo 100x and a Leverage a few month ago and would love to see how they shoot at a range bigger than my back yard in Savannah.

Just wanted to thank "classic hillbilly" for donating one of his Explosive Target Kits for us to enjoy at the Fun-Shoot!

From what I can gather, it is an easy set-up, does not create a mess/easy clean-up and is just plain fun! ;D

Will be sure to video document his explosive targets for sure!

Thanks again,

I'd be lucky if I could hit the side of a school bus from 175-yards myself! It's nice to know that the long-range is there/available to find out though...very awesome!

Well,

lefteyeshot is coming for sure and we will be coming up together! He too has an extensive assortment of air-guns to share and show-off and I look very forward to meeting him and trying out some of his air-guns!

He has never shot a PCP and now will be a great time for him to do so!

Will be a great time! ;D

Big Al,

You gave us the dates (days) of the event but not the month. Which month is it? I live in Jacksonville, Fl and am seriously thinking about coming (maybe with a friend). If the event is near Lake Marion I believe it will be about a 5 hr. drive. It takes me about 2 1/2 hrs. to get to the Savannah exit on I95.  Anyway, which month is it?

Thanks,

Understood.

Al (OleTomCat) has mentioned us having another get together in a month or 2 when it cools off a little bit, so we'll be sure to keep you posted with plenty of advance notice.:-)

Sorry for such short notice for this weekends get together, but this weekends event started off as a spur of the moment kind of thing where a couple of Air-Gunners (both named Al) had decided to get together for some air-gunning on the 1rst or 2nd of August. We then decided, why not ask all GTA Members and friends in the area or whoever wants to come...to come, and we'll make it a 2-day get together!

Thanks,

Al.

Hey Al,

September or October (even November) would be great. I talked to my friend here about coming and he would like to also but this weekend is a little too soon. But please, any future date we would love to come. We both love airguns and have a club here that meets monthly in Yulee, Fl. called N. Florida Shooters. We are sanctioned by the USARB.

Anyway, please keep me in mind for the future. I'll be there.

Thanks,
Tim Weir

In preparation for this weekends Fun-Shoot Event, I am going to cast and swage another 350-500 rounds of the '.22 AGW CYLINDRICAL DOMED WARRIORS' for us to test fire in the various .22 air-guns that will be there!

Should be plenty! :D

Cheers,

Wow Al n Al....this really took off...



175 yards? at a school bus?...pffff....4 shots with OTC's BT-65 and you'll be able to pick which letter in the school name you're gonna hit next..


when I had that air rifle, I was  hitting 2" pieces of broken shotgun pigeons at 100 yards....with authority too!
so a 6x8 75 yards farther down range is feasible...

Hello. I'll have to send a private message for the specifics, but I'm going to try to make it to the shoot at least one day. My son lives in Summerville so that'll give me an excuse. I live about 80 miles away in Olar, SC. I'm glad to see you guys getting something together for airgunners here in the low country. I'll be glad to help any way I can. I have 10 meter guns, plinkers, and hunting guns, but don't have a real serious field target rig. I could probably knock over a silhouette if I tried real hard.

Hope you can make it. :D

As mentioned before, this started off as just me and Al getting together to do some shooting on on his private property.

We then decided that we would ask any other GTA Members that would like to join to do so.

The name of it started off as a joke from Jeff R. off Trenier Outdoor Products, because it just so happens that Al and I have the same name, hence the name of the event being "Als' Lowcountry Fun-Shoot".

Al has already mentioned that we put on another one to me when it is cooler, like late September, mid October, as we agree with you about the heat.

If yall don't make this one, hopefully the next one!

Respectfully,

Al.

p.s. I have evrything packed-up and by the door ready to go!:) Hoping you and Al can help to get my QB-78 Deluxe HPA to seal when trying to fill it with air!

Today was a true BLESSING! :D

I have learned an exorbitant amount of information related to Air-Gunning the past 1.5-days and was able to see and shoot products that I had often wondered about many times in the past!

When I get home, I will post more pictures and write more about today's shoot!

Here's one thing I can tell you I learned: I CANNOT SHOOT A SPRINGER! :-\ I did pretty good with the low in power QB-57, but the more powerful Springers...I would like to forget about!

Al was kind enough to take the time to give me some pointers and good advice! :D

I now know more than ever that shooting a Springer or Break-Barrel takes discipline, practice and lots of patience!


More to come!

Cheers,

AGW.

I had a great time at the shoot yesterday! Weather was great and the company was even better. I want to publicly thank both Als for opening up the shoot the rest of the airgun community. That was wonderful. I think all of us learned a lot about some airguns we'd never shot before and I certainly learned a lot about a some cool, new guns and trends happening in the airgun world. A lot changed in  the few years I got away from the hobby. I can't believe how many more new pellets and guns are on the market and some of the really cool, affordable modifications being done.

Airgunwarriors brought a ton of cool new types of targets of various shapes and sizes and explosiveness, and someone brought some really nice stainless spinners that don't rust and should last forever.

Lefteyeshot brought a bunch of different guns, none of which I had ever shot before. I don't know how he fit them all in his car!

OleTomCat brought along a few of his custom tuned guns and his Big Nasty which was just a beast! I can't believe how well it shot and how hard it hit.

All in all it was a fantastic time and I can't wait to get together again!

Now we need to start looking out to October for a date for the next one.  Can't be the weekend of the 11th & 12th or 18th & 19th, wife already called dibs on those two weekends.

So we have two other weekends, anyone have a preference?

The 4th and 5th would be fine with me, provided I'm still home.  Working takes up too much of my time from the things that matter. :P   Other than that, any time would work.  Just happy to have a chance to meet the people I talk to on here.

Al and I are thinking along those lines as well, something like the first weekend of October.

It starts to cool off a bit towards the end of October, which would possibly hinder the Co2 Shooters and the Summer type heat is pretty much gone by the first weekend of October.

The first weekend would also put more time between the Fun-Shoot and the Holidays (Halloween and Thanksgiving), which is really nice for those that have children or travel out of town for Thanksgiving.

Nothing etched in stone yet, just wanted to share what our current thoughts are.:-)

Hope to meet many of you there regardless! Its awesome being around others that share the passion of Air-Gunning!

Cheers,

AGW.

Unfortunately, did not get to try out the BIG-BLAST EXPLODING TARGET KIT/S this time out, but will asap!

I can tell you that the design is very cool, affordable and will be easy to set-up for some fun! No complicated parts to it!

I will be making a video of it in action very soon. :D

Hope to see you October 4th and 5th!

Title: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: airgunwarriors on August 10, 2014, 04:02:56 AM
ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!

WHEN: The first weekend in October/Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th 2014!

TIME: Will probably meet up at a major land-mark or Exit right off the Interstate at 8:30 a.m. both days. I am sure that as the Event gets closer, we'll know exactly where and what time.

PLACE: Al's (OleTomCat's) patch of Heaven around Summerville/closer to Lake Marion, S.C.!
(please send OleTomCat a pm for a map or directions)

WHERE TO STAY: There are a few reasonably priced Hotels around the area to choose from and I'm sure that as this thread grows, more information on that will be provided.

THE RANGE: There's plenty of room for short, medium and long-range shooting! Long-range can easily exceed 100+ yards!
(Please note: The maximum long-range distance has yet to be determined by Al (OleTomCat), but I am sure it'll all get figured out well in advance so we'll all know what to plan for)

If you have a look at the pictures posted from our first get together, you can see for yourself just how perfect Al's patch of Heaven is for having a Fun-Shoot Event! As we are expecting a bigger turn up of Air-Gunners this time, maybe we can have some fun and challenging shooting matches! ;D

You may want to bring the following:
(Please keep in mind that there is no running water or electricity)

Chair/s-

Folding Table/s-

Bug-spray-

Canopy-

Bottled Water-

Snacks-

Safety Glasses/Eye Protection-

Your arsenal of airguns-

A good supply of whatever it is that powers your airguns and plenty of ammo-

At the last get together, Al (OTM) made a fire and provided some hot-dogs for us to grill over that open fire, and boy were they good! :D

I will be supplying a large number of targets in various shapes, forms, materials and sizes, as too will Al (OleTomCat), but if you have any you would like to bring with you as well for everyone to enjoy, by all means...please do! :D

Should be some chronys available too, which would make it a great time and place to find out exactly how your airgun/s are performing with various types of airgun ammo, at various distances.
(Especially great for those without a chrony and a means to shoot beyond 25-yards, etc.)

That's about all I can think of to tell for now.

Plenty of advanced notice this time, so we really hope to see yall there! ;D

For more details and information, send us a pm and keep an eye on this thread!

Happy/Safe Shooting, :D

Al & Al.

Looking very forward to this next get together for sure! Should be lots of fun! Many more targets for us to enjoy this time around!

Hoping to come over to your place sometime this week and get some shooting in! :D

Just an example of some of numerous reactive targets that will be set-up at various distances on the range for the Fun-Shoot Event!

These are rubber/synthetic wine bottle corks and when they are smacked by some air-gun ammo just right, they go zinging around like crazy! :o

What is also cool about these; is that you can shoot them several times before they are no good to shoot anymore...kinda like "self-sealing".

I'll be making at least 150-250 of these for all to enjoy! ;D

Happy/Safe Shooting, :D

Thanks Al!

I'm working on a bunch targets, stands included!

Look forward to seeing them targets your Pappy sent to you! :D

Tim and I plan on coming up on Friday the 3rd so that we can put those custom spoon spinner targets together.

This time we'll be able to use Charles' BIG-BLAST EXPLOSIVE TARGETS that use plastic soda/water bottles! One of the great things about his version of this type of reactive target...you can have multiple targets set-up at the same time and it's affordable!
(yes, that was a plug for Charles. He deserves it and I will show everyone why after the Fun-Shoot!:)

It's going to be a great time with a ginormous amount of targets to shoot!

I have also been trying to get a lot more of my ammo cast and swaged for testing and for anyone that wants to, sling down-range...this time, the lead is a little bit harder!

Thanks again,

Al.

p.s. Tim (lefteyeshot) recently purchased another Hatsan break-barrel...the 135 w/wood stock in .177, will be fun trying that out!

Here's the beginnings of a spoon spinner target that I am making for the Fun-Shoot Event and then giving to Tim (lefteyeshot) afterwards. It will have tablespoons and teaspoons on as spinners, about 10 across and then there will be the rubber/synthetic reactive corks across the bottom to be knocked-down! I'll post a picture after it is completed. :D

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/27685318-9bb1-43ca-9afc-24c52782e3d0_zpscafc1c91.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/27685318-9bb1-43ca-9afc-24c52782e3d0_zpscafc1c91.jpg.html)

There will also be the ones that Al and I are making from some steel frames that he is welding together for us to place at short, mid and long range.

Thanks,

I don't have any pellets that size but I do have some black powder molds in .45, what is the exact diameter you are looking for?

The ones i got are made by air venturi and they mic out at approx. Length- .484 and Diameter- .454 with an average weight of 159grs.  They are labeled to weigh 166gr, but they missed it.  These are the only ones I have to play with right now.  I did manage to put 12rds downrange to get it on paper at 42yds, but haven't done much else with it to see what it prefers.  It's an hour to the shooting range and then I have to share with the powder burners who seem to get a little miffed that I'm there.

The magazine will only accept pellets less than .600 in length and the weight limit is around 200gr.

I'm hoping you guys can help me figure out a good setup for this monster..  ::)

If you have sometthing you want to try, I'm up for it.

Hey Al,

In that box of goodies I sent are some water caps with Bigger Blast 3-liter valves installed in them. I punched the holes to exactly 7/32" because that's the size treefork to me to make but I did have problems with the inflation needle pushing the valve out of the cap. Treefork has posted a How To video and now I can see the difference. The punch he used is a 7/32" but the hole you get is undersized in soft material. Off I go to Walmart tomorrow for more water bottles and I'll send you some replacement caps.

It's good that you gave us a lengthy notice on this fun shoot!

And by the way I usually have these valves listed on ebay as:
Big Blast Target Inflator - BIGGER Blast for 3-liter bottles
but I've run out and it will be a week or so before more come in.

Check out the video and you'll know everything about using these cheap little valves in water bottle caps.

Charlie,

We really appreciate all the trouble you are going through to help us to have a "BIG-BLAST" at the Fun-Shoot Event...Lol!:)

Seriously, it is all very appreciated and I look forward, as I'm sure everyone else is that will be attending...to putting your Kits to great use!

Not sure if you've noticed yet, but not only will we have the "BIG NASTY" (HATSAN BT65 .25 CAL) there this time, but there will also be a Evanix Tactical .45! Imagine a .45 round smacking into one of those BIGGER BLAST pressurized bottles! Will be awesome! ;D

And now the rest of the story...  Treefork's video doesn't show him installing a valve in that tiny little hole, so how does he do it?
'Get it started and pull it thru with my teeth'
If you are like me you'll use needle nose pliers to make sure your teeth don't end up on the workbench!

I found an easy way to get the spoons onto the all thread!

I just drill a hole in the top of the spoons, give the spoons a twist and slide onto the all-thread! ;D

I keep the spoons in place/spaced by way of 2 nuts and then add a washer on each side of the spoons to help insure a smoother spin.

Pretty cool, huh? ;D

Thanks,

Al.

I now realize that I will not be able to use the nuts if I want Tim to be able to replace the spoons easily.

I will use dense rubber spacers/tubing and the washers instead. Will just have to slide the tunes and old spoons off when wanting to replace them.

The only nuts will be the two wing-nuts that hold the all-thread to the base or the stand/s.

So, will have to finish tomorrow.

Thanks again,

Al.

p.s. It will have a total of 9 spoons on it!

I still like the idea of bending the spoon handles around the threaded Rod, you can use lock nuts and washers that way and know they won't wonder around on you....

"I still like the idea of bending the spoon handles around the threaded Rod, you can use lock nuts and washers that way and know they won't wonder around on you...."


Would too have much rather done it that way, but the spoons are very hard to bend around the all-thread or even to bend a loop into without the loops being huge or the spoons breaking.

I will just bring the spoons with me when we come-up Friday the 3rd and see what we can come-up with.

Thanks,

Al.

Here it is!

Just need to treat the base with some water sealant, paint it black and add the spacers!

Al, if you don't mind, I'd like to prepare a lot of spoons that will be easier for Tim to replace for this by way of your torch? I will be bringing over 40+ spoons with me...some tea and some table...there will be plenty for Tim and for us to utilize on the Spoon Spinners that we are making for the Fun-Shoot! :D

Thanks,

Al.

waiting with baited breath here...

I think I need to change the balance point of my Titan GP NP powered Fury II stocked .22....gah what a mouth full...it needs a new name...think I'll call it the (drums and timpany) "Titan II NP"

I still need a scope for it that has cross hairs that don't rotate and are at least sort of aligned with the adjustment turrets...the lighter and cheaper the better....hmmm maybe a CP 3-9X40 from wallworld?...

I was thinking the CP 3-9x40 too or one of the $49.00 CVLife ones from amazon.com.

What I like about the CP, is that you can simply return it to your local wally-world if something goes wrong with it...if you don't get one of the good ones.

Thanks,

The ones i got are made by air venturi and they mic out at approx. Length- .484 and Diameter- .454 with an average weight of 159grs.  They are labeled to weigh 166gr, but they missed it.  These are the only ones I have to play with right now.  I did manage to put 12rds downrange to get it on paper at 42yds, but haven't done much else with it to see what it prefers.  It's an hour to the shooting range and then I have to share with the powder burners who seem to get a little miffed that I'm there.

The magazine will only accept pellets less than .600 in length and the weight limit is around 200gr.

I'm hoping you guys can help me figure out a good setup for this monster..  ::)

If you have sometthing you want to try, I'm up for it.

I have a two cavity mold round and conical for the .45, but iI don't remember the size and weight.  I will find the mold and cast a few this weekend to measure.

I found some .445 round balls, but those are for use in a rifle with cloth patches, found the pistol mold but have to cast a couple to see what they measure out at....

Jeff from Trenier Outdoor Products (www.trenieroutdoors.com (http://www.trenieroutdoors.com)) has kindly donated a few gifts for us to give away at the Fun-Shoot Event! Might be a good reason to have that "Donut Challenge" huh?

Said we could use them too.

Very much appreciated Jeff! :D

Take care,

Ain't that the truth.

OleTomCat, if the molds don't mic out. it's ok.  I ordered another 200 pellets from PA last week. (They were nice enough to send another 50 free..  ;D. They get two thumbs up from me)

On another note, I have a paintball rig that I have been trying to get rid of... if anyone is interested in it, I can bring it to the shoot.

MORE TARGETS FOR THE UP-COMING FUN-SHOOT EVENT!

Will be sure to place 1-inch "reactive" bulls-eyes on all of the tin can targets, like the one on the far left in this picture:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/984da5e5-ea0b-4072-b884-293310c75b32_zps6b1fe05f.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/984da5e5-ea0b-4072-b884-293310c75b32_zps6b1fe05f.jpg.html)

I was finally able to get the spoons bent just the way I wanted them, with a small hook-loop for easier replacement. Just need to paint the stand and it will be finished:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/6982754e-1b84-412b-b3df-7fde98bcdb50_zpsd665b62d.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/6982754e-1b84-412b-b3df-7fde98bcdb50_zpsd665b62d.jpg.html)

Alright.  Almost done running around like a chicken with my head cut off.
Guns are filled, pellets gathered, targets (such as they are) collected....
Only a few more things to accomplish.  Need to pick up a box of paintballs and a new CO2 bottle, the old ones are out of date and haven't found a place to recertify.
Bringing the family and was wondering if there are any other wives that will be there? Mine wants to see what I am so excited about.

BTW, I can get to Cross in about 2 hours, just need directions to find your spot, OTC. I'm coming from Columbia. Really hoping the weather holds...  8)

Been busy making more targets for the Fun-Shoot Event this weekend!

Please note: All stands average around 3-ft. in length.

This is Explosive Chalk Target Stand:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/IMG_20140930_184959-1_zpsf936fcba.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/IMG_20140930_184959-1_zpsf936fcba.jpg.html)

Knock-down Target Stand with rubber wine bottle corks and tin can targets:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/IMG_20140930_183946-1_zps1d1dd24a.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/IMG_20140930_183946-1_zps1d1dd24a.jpg.html)

I made this stand specifically for scope zeroing. The back board is plastic corrugated sign board, of which I have an unlimited supply of thanks to the local gas stations:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/IMG_20140930_232400-1_zps0eac5032.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/IMG_20140930_232400-1_zps0eac5032.jpg.html)

Another one of several Knock-down Target Stands that I made with some tin can knock-downs on it:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/IMG_20140930_184238-1_zpscecfd89b.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/IMG_20140930_184238-1_zpscecfd89b.jpg.html)

Here's the finished version of the Spoon Spinner Target Stand that I made for lefteyeshot (Tim). I'll put the spacers on at the Fun-Shoot and then we can put it to the test:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/IMG_20140930_185653-1_zpscbc53cea.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/IMG_20140930_185653-1_zpscbc53cea.jpg.html)

Stainless-Steel Spinner Targets (Rat with Donut in front) from Trenier Outdoor Products. Trying to hit the rat through that donut is a very fun challenge:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/5a14bda2-765e-4bd4-a368-b24fe7a1278d_zps6e7180f9.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/5a14bda2-765e-4bd4-a368-b24fe7a1278d_zps6e7180f9.jpg.html)

Another Knock-down Target Stand:

Here's one of a few Air-Rifles I will take with me to help slam some lead into the above targets:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/IMG_20140910_172255_zps8dc6406c.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/IMG_20140910_172255_zps8dc6406c.jpg.html)

My .22 Flying Dragon-PCP w/Full-Power Tune!:)

The above only represents a few of what I have already made. I still have more to make and will post pictures of them tomorrow. Thanks for having a look. :D

Look very forward to seeing Yall there!

Made this for the Fun-Shoot Event this weekend. Will have 26 targets on it when finished:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/43f60afb-158c-4137-8f72-bd24d19112fe_zps78598d69.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/43f60afb-158c-4137-8f72-bd24d19112fe_zps78598d69.jpg.html)

Replacement targets are already made.

Here's the replacement or optional Zeroing Target Stand Boards made of corrugated plastic:

First, another picture of the Zeroing Target Stand:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/IMG_20140930_232400-1_zps0eac5032.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/IMG_20140930_232400-1_zps0eac5032.jpg.html)

I'll be adding some 1-inch Birchwood-Casey black bulls-eye targets around the paper target in the center of the board for additional zeroing targets:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/788facd8-342c-4b73-8806-792bc24cad39_zpsa92b2bb3.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/788facd8-342c-4b73-8806-792bc24cad39_zpsa92b2bb3.jpg.html)

All targets on this are reactive. The one in the center is an 8-inch diameter one:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/ba5e4e2b-de26-46bc-93c5-0b7782c26d28_zps5b258061.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/ba5e4e2b-de26-46bc-93c5-0b7782c26d28_zps5b258061.jpg.html)

This one has an 8-inch reactive target in the center too. May add some 1-inch black bulls-eye targets to this one as well:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/e93aa9f8-bce7-4ddb-aa8d-835548568a75_zps40eb982a.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/e93aa9f8-bce7-4ddb-aa8d-835548568a75_zps40eb982a.jpg.html)

This one will be used to perform vertical line tests with my .22 Flying Dragon-PCP. I would like to know exactly how many useful shots I have above the 4% ES shot-string:

(http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab34/airgunwarriors/CAM01640_zps6c495d90.jpg) (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/airgunwarriors/media/CAM01640_zps6c495d90.jpg.html)

There are 5 boards all together and they can be used many times over.

Thanks,

Al.

Gonna get together the same as before,
Cracker Barrel parking lot I-26 exit 199 at 8AM ?

For those that do not have a gps, we are going to meet up at Exit 187 Hwy 27, there is a gas station just north of the exit on the right side.  I plan on leaving there No Later Than 8am...

For everyone else just Google 400 Arch Drive, Cross SC and put that into your GPS, when you turn onto Arch Drive, Gravel Road, we are almost exactly 1/2 Mile back at the Sharp Right turn in Arch Dr.

If anyone needs my number send me a Message or Email....

Post by: OleTomCat on October 03, 2014, 02:16:19 PM
I was out there yesterday and heading back today to finish with the setup.  Ground was dry on the shooting line but a little soft in the field so we won't be driving out to the targets....

We will have to do a little bit of manual labor when we get there, the farmer that harvests the 'hay' off of the field hasn't picked up the huge rolls of hay so we will have to roll them out of the shooting lanes, don't want any extra lead in the hay for the cows...

Al will be bringing a truck load of targets but if yall have any you want to bring feel free...

Post by: HYspd on October 05, 2014, 12:58:05 PM
ack! you took pictures of me?.. that's one tough camera!...

there were tons of guns...most of which I was too jealous to shoot and of the ones I did break down and shoot, I'm now even more jealous of...

the flying dragon PCPs were amazing as is the QB79 on HPA...I already (cough) know about the BT-65 and that Evanex Sniper in .45 was AMAZING at 177FPE..
 
I am going to have to come up with something more interesting than tramp stamped Titan .22 for the next Fun Shoot..

I spent so much time getting my gun to actually shoot after all the emergency barrel work the night before that I didn't get to shoot any of Tim's guns and I really did want to try at least the Torpedo .22 and try at least one of the QB-57s...but I did learn enough to say the Hatsan guns are a bargain if you are buying by the pound..

unfortunately for me, the money spent on the goodies the recrown and lap my barrel, was the gas money for a trip out for the second day of the meet and with that and having some home issues to take care of, I was only able to attend the first day...my Titan now shoots better than ever and I have a life supply of brass round head screws and valve grinding compound but, but somehow it's not quite a fair enough trade for not making the second day....although I do have the gun to remind of where I was and who was around when all that had been done to it finally paid off....

I had a great time, ate my first ever campfire cooked hotdogs and would recommend this bunch of guys to anyone looking to have fun with airguns

there targets and people were and the location were AWESOME....any day shooting is a good day, but that was the Best Day Shooting EVER!



PS. be sure to thank AL G. for getting me hooked on the 2240!....a pistol I can actually hit things with (disbelief)

I was only there for day one this time around but had a real blast. I enjoyed seeing Al and Al and Tim again, and I enjoyed meeting all the other folks from around the state. Great guys and some really nice guns. Airgunwarriors targets were fantastic as usual. The weather was perfect, although the breeze was a little strong for long distance grouping, not that I was shooting much long distance anyway. Hopefully we can get together and do this again before long. Thank you again Al and Al.

And on that note, the wife has given me tentative permission to schedule another shoot on the 8th of November.  This date isn't set in stone yet so, but everyone check their calendars and let me know it that works for you......

Spent most of today running around didn't get to shoot much until about 1pm and took zero pictures today, the weather was cool and crisp this morning, about 45, turkeys were all over the range this morning too....

Glad Tim and Al got home safe....

ps: Post up all of yall's pictures, as usual I didn't take many, my wife saved me this time when she came out yesterday....

pss: Speaking of my wife, she was talking about making either Gumbo, Chili or Jambalaya for the next shoot.........

I had an excellent time!  Hopefully we can do it again in november.  Just been recovering from having to feed the newly christened "Cookie Monster."  I figure about 48 rounds went thru it and the rest of the time was spent pumping it up.  Pretty sad given that it was an all day affair.  And alot of it was spent on the pump.  (Really gotta get a tank.)  Many thanks to Chuck and Big Al for the help with that.  Awesome targets from AGW.  Great to meet the people behind that avatars that provide the wonderful advice to others on here.  Definitely looking forward to doing it again.  And thanks again, OTC, for the adapter.  It works great.  Tried it with the Benji pump and it honestly didn't seem to take as long.  Only about 30-45 minutes including breaks.  :P 

And the offer still stands if you need any help with the mammalian cockroach problem.    ;)

Just wanted to say what a great time me and my brother had. Big Al went above and beyond to make this a funshoot to remember.Great to meet all the guys and to see so many fine airguns.Those guys had a lot of knowledge about airguns,heck there was one there who I believe could disassemble a gun and put it back together blindfolded,not gonna mention his name but his initials are "Big Al" :D. Thanks again Al for a great time.

No, not yet. I want to add a descriptive video to the footage and then edit or splice it together before posting it. Have been going non-stop since Sunday morning...literally.

I'm extremely tired from this past week and first day off is not till next Wednesday.

I'll get it up asap though.

It's up in the air if I can make it.  Possible job going on that I might get a call for.  If I'm still here, I'll definitely be there, though.  It was great meeting everyone.  It was nice being able to kick off the .45, too.  ;D  This time I won't forget half of what I was going to bring.   ::)
Fingers crossed on both counts.   :o

Not a prob.  I'll grab what I can.   ;D  Definitely worth it after all the work you put into them.
By the way, did I ever say thanks? I hope you know I mean it.

One thing that has really intrigued me is the number of people here in SC that don't seem to know about this.  There's flatcar1, Gene, and BillinSC that I can think of off the top of my head, but I haven't heard from any of them but Bill.  He can't make it due to harvesting.  Any thoughts?

Yup, you said "thanks". :D It is my pleasure to make the targets and stands, I really enjoy it a lot. Wait till you see the new ones I am working on. ;D

I think if it was in the main announcement gate, it would help to draw more attention. I will ask D Ez if he will please post it in the announcement gate too. First, I will make a new thread here in the S.C. Gate and then send him a pm, hopefully that will help get some more Air-Gunners out there.

Take Care,

Also grabbing some more reelection signs. It's nice of politicians to provide such excellent target holders. Almost makes me feel like I'm getting my money's worth out of them.

Another great time with a few unexpected surprises, both good and bad. 

A couple of skeptical people who visited may possibly become converts, I acquired a CF tank (thank you, Hyspd), my attempt at making a gong target stood up to the .45 and danced wonderfully when hit, and with the help of Hyspd's new bullet trap realised the transfer port was shaving the sides off the boolits during chambering.

My friend was ecstatic when OTC was able to correct his scope issues.  He should be running out of pests in his back yard pretty soon now that he knows where his pellets are going.

OTC was his usual enthusiastic and gracious self. Thanks for the hotdogs, and again for hosting this wonderful shoot. It's nice being able to sit around and shoot the breeze and a few targets in good company.

I'm still wondering about Tim's parting comment to me... "it takes a special man to appreciate a B3"...



but I LOVE that B3 he gave me...anybody with $100 can have my Captian Tacticool Titan/FuryII scope breaking hotrod, but that B3 is going in with the family heirloom Crosman 160 and the 1970's Sheridan Pumper that are the first airguns I ever hunted with..the squirrels in the back yard haven't realized it yet, but there's anew kid in town!

Tim gave me a B3 as well and it's awesome for what it is. Have a look on the internet at all the various modifications that have been done by Air-Gunners...pretty awesome stuff.

I shoot mine open sights from 13-meters in and it's just plain accurate and very forgiving.

Glad Tim hooked you up with a B3 too Chuck, pretty awesome of him.

The Als' fun shoot last week end in Cross, S.C. was good stuff. Good company, good hot dogs and good shooting. Glad you guys like those B3's. They'll both shoot that good at 23 yds. I got to try shooting at 50 yds. The .177 Hatsan 135 shot good at 50 yds and the .177 Dominator 200s carbine was a nail driver. My old pawn shop buys, the TF89 and Winchester 1000 did ok. A little cross wind maybe. Didn't break any scopes. Next time we shoot up there I'm going for the wood line, 95yds. I punched paper all weekend. I think I shot a couple of wine bottle corks and a spoon spinner Little Al made for us at 15 yds after I zeroed the B3 for Chuck. I think that B3 might of had a little custom barrel bending.

Thanks, Big Al for a great place to shoot and the company. Later, you all.

Though it doesn't seem like it this weekend the weather should be warming up by the first or second weekend in March.  Haven't shot much since the last get together may have to schedule and early spring shoot......

Let me know what Yall think.....

I would like to make it, but doesn't look like I'll be back in country until April. Then I'll only have roughly 3 weeks before Alaska.

Did you get the bur removed from the transfer port?

I didn't see your question until now, OTC. Yea, it's good to go, I think. Probably won't get a chance to try it out until October, tho. Hopefully, I'll have the compressor by then. It'll make it easier to fill for testing when I get the chance.

Terry,

Let us know when in April you are going to be here and we will schedule another shoot around your time too...

I'm ready anytime. Got a gun I want to try at 50 yards. Rusted up Daisy 1000 from a pawn shop for $25. Before with new B2 leather breach seals it shot Peak 8.6grs around 670fps and 4grs alloys 830fps. New spring and piston seal from Air Rifle Supply, painted barrel and receiver with p/u liner. New wood Winchester 1000 stock from Daisy. (Both models made by Hatsan until 2005 from what I read.) Big Gamo barrel weight and a TF 3-7x32AO scope. Now it shoots the Peaks about 820 and the Crosman alloys 1150fps. Shoots RWS 8.2 grs Meisterkugeln around 880fps and at 23 yards after I zeroed, the last 5 pellets made one hole with one flyer a half inch away. 2lbs trigger pull.

We can build a warming fire and shoot now.

(pokes head out of semi)......did somebody say fun shoot?



Things are going good.....thinking about picking up a another BT65 .25...in wood this time.
Have to source air though, I live in a semi and the Co. would have a fit if I tried running a high pressure compressor off it

Make an adapter to air your gun up off the air hose to the trailer's glad hands. Just kidding, too much moisture and oil get in a trucks air system.

It'll air-up a tire. When ever we do shoot, among other guns, I'll bring my new Diana 470th. Yes, it's her and it's mine and it's a baby-doll. A heavy baby-doll but a baby-doll non the less.

So today after brunch at Madra Rua Irish pub the wife says lets go out to the property and shoot some, was a last minute thing, swung by Tractor supply for two bags of corn since the feeder was empty last time we were out there, came home switched vehicles real quick hastily packed up the Big Nasty and the FDPCP along with all the support gear and off we went, had a great day shooting the weather was absolutely gorgeous perfect day for shooting, now I need to order two more tins of JSB Kings....

Here is a picture of my wife shooting her favorite gun, The Big Nasty...

I'm working things around so that I get every third week off and the schedule runs in a Wednesday through Tuesday pattern, so that I will have every 3rd weekend off...

It will take a few weeks to get it all worked out..as thing are now, I will be working this coming weekend and be off the next weekend of April 4th and 5th...after that I will have the pattern established and I'm REALLY looking forward to some like minded, airgun related socializing...

Latest update....

On the 21st of this month, we're celebrating the wife's 50th. I'm flying out on the 15th of April. From the 2nd to the 7th, I'll be home in missouri visiting my dad. If the weather ever straightens up, we might get a little shooting done, but it doesn't look like it's going to. In that event, I'm supposed to come home for a week starting July 2nd until the 9th so maybe I can join you guys then.
Of course, everything is subject to change....

Thanks for sharing the link Al. This looks like a hoot!!
I think I read in there something about a 175 yd shot??  LOL! I cant SEE 175 yds with a 16x scope!!   :o

Post by: OleTomCat on March 22, 2015, 11:44:11 PM
Ed,

The longest shooting lane we currently have setup is 100 yds and only a few of us have even attempted the shots, though others have the desire just not the power to reach that far....

We are looking at April 10th and 11th for the next official shoot dates, though I plan on being out there pretty much every weekend through the next couple of months getting things ready for the Ground Breaking for Camp Gigi Grandpa...
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: lefteyeshot on March 23, 2015, 06:50:20 PM
I'll be there.

Big Al, I got two B2's, a B1, Daisy 753, Ruger Explorer, maybe an X20S and four or five B3's and about nine 4x32 scopes for the scouts. Got to sort thru the pats bin for scope mounts. Put two Industry Brand clamp on rear sight on two of the B3's. They work real good. Going to make some drop-in anti-bear trap safeties out of some steel rod (2 to 2 1/2" X 5/16") with 550 parachute cord lanyards with loops on one end to loop thru the scope mounts or trigger guards. That should belay any fears about fingers. With you all's approval of course. Later.

By the way, you have any extra scope mounts (or rings) with a rounded bottom. I have some. Some of these old chinese guns you need them or the mount and scope will be canted.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: dv8eod on March 23, 2015, 07:00:12 PM
If you have the parts, Tim, I'll bring the stock back to you to give you one more.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: lefteyeshot on March 23, 2015, 07:28:36 PM
Nah, Terry that stock came off an ancient B1. I thought maybe the one you were working on was a real old one also. I don't think that stock will fit the newer B1's. The piston center rod is broke on the one that stock came from.

I bought a new .177 B1 at the local flea market and cut the stock off behind the pistol grip and put a QB6 folding stock, an AK muzzle brake/flash suppressor and a BSA red dot sight on it and sprayed it all with p/u bed liner. "Paratrooper" B1. Looks kinda' like an old paratrooper M1 carbine. Just a prototype, not perfect yet. Bought two of the AK muzzle brakes from archie way back for B3-1 AK's. Only mounted one. Got two of those QB6 stock from him a month or so ago. Can't find a QB6 for sale anywhere. But he still got the stocks. One of those rainey week-end projects.

Look forward to seeing you guys at the fun shoot if we're able to do it. Later Tim.

There are 2 other shoots also scheduled in april. Flatcar1 is doing the boy scout shoot in greer on the 11th, and nicky999 is hosting his FT shoot around the 25th, i think.  I am just posting this here, in case anybody from SC is lurking and not wanting to post might have missed them. I'm hoping the weather holds out for the 10th and 11th at Al's place. Looking forward to shooting with friends.

New guy is coming, aka Grimeszee, Kevin. Lives in Columbia. Can you look him up on the forum (I don't know how) and PM him the address of the fun shoot or send it to me. I recall my GPS would take me right to it.

Or I can PM it to him or have him call me my and meet him some where.

We had a lot of fun. Al's friends are a really nice couple. I had her hitting spoons at 25 yards with my Hatsan 135 and 155 and my old Bam B4 underlever. She also hit a 6" metal disk at 50 yards with the 135 aiming center mass. Showed her hold over and she also hit the disk with three mil dots of hold over with the old B4.

Kevin,

We can shoot out to 100 yards where I currently have the target range setup.  Most stick to the closer in ranges unless they have a big PCP or the patience of Tim who shoots his big .177 springers out to 100 yards...
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!

Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: lefteyeshot on September 17, 2015, 01:12:18 AM
I'm gonna' also bring a couple of .22's. But at 100 yds last time I tried with a .22 it's like shootin' a mortar. I could hear the pellets hit the trees behind the target or splash the dirt in front of the target.
It's fun though to try.

I'll bring some wine bottle corks. I check my zeros at 25 with those. Maybe 50 is more realistic. But I'll try anything. My 135, 155, 470th and Mach 12.5 shoot pretty flat to 50 yds.

Hang a paper target at 100 yards and send a few JSB 18.1gr at it from the QB HPA to get your trajectory.  If the wind is cooperative, prepare to smile.  ;D

I ordered a sample tin of H&N .177 Hunter Extreme hollow points (tips look like head of a screw) in 9.57-grain and a sample tin of .22 JSB 15.89-grain domes from Trenier Outdoors to try out in the .177 QB-57 and .22 Flying Dragon-PCP.

http://www.trenieroutdoors.com/pellets6.html (http://www.trenieroutdoors.com/pellets6.html)

First time trying H&N pellets and eager to see how well they fare in the QB-57.

My FD-PCP already shoots 18.1-grain JSB pellets very accurately and well beyond 900-fps, but I want to turn the power dial down a little bit and increase shot count...without sacrificing too much fps. So, hopefully these 15.89-grain JSB pellets will do the trick.

If there's enough room, would be nice to see how Titan GP, tuned by Big Al does with the 15.89-grain JSB pellets as well.

I will be bringing the H&N henter extremes with me tomorrow for both .25 and .22 cal. I also have the JSB 15.4 's in .22 cal. But the real test is shooting the 21 grain .177 cal pyledrivers.

Yes  they are. And the will surprise the *(&^ out you.  In tested them out of my disco running CO2 before the power adjuster and it shot 15.8 FPE at the muzzle and 15.3 15 yards away. so it lost .5 FPE over 15 yrds.

Post by: airgunwarriors on September 20, 2015, 12:03:16 AM
Well, just got home from a very safe, educational and fun day of Airgunning at the Fun-Shoot. :D Got to handle and shoot some new (to me) airguns today and this was my bill of fare:

Very solidly made Sheridan pumpers, .25 Hatsan 125 Vortex, custom Crosman FT pistol from MAC 1 (very excellent work from MAC 1) and a Crosman 2300KT. :D

Today, I wanted to figure out once and for all, how many "useful" shots I could get from my Flying Dragon-PCP in .22, with full power tune and a few other custom modifications done by JTB530. With the power on its lowest setting, I was able to get right at 23 to 25 useful shots. Tried to chrony, but the chrony would not cooperate. Based on past information and performance, pretty sure that it is right around 905+fps range, shooting the 15.89-grain JSB pellets. Had a piece of plywood set up at 50-yards and the pellets were punching holes right through it, sending splinters of wood flying out of the back of the wood plank, which was a pretty awesome sight! ;D

Also, got to meet some new and very nice people today as well, and that's always great!

After having cocked the .25 Hatsan 125 around 20 times in a row (not to mention the Titan GP several times), I feel as if my left shoulder/arm will fall off, as I am far from being used to the exercise of cocking such airguns, but do want to commit myself to becoming an efficient shooter of break barrels and hopefully this soreness from cocking the break-barrels, will become a thing of the past after awhile.

Hope/Pray that everyone made it home safe,

Lil Al.

I would like to thank Big Al for inviting Me to take part in the fun shoot. My wife and I had an absolute blast, I believe we have the makings of a legitimate airgun fanatics group. By the way lil Al I am a bit sore from the hundred or so break barrel cocking sequences yesterday. I will post more thoughts later when the fog of last nights Octoberfest party retreats.

Post by: lefteyeshot on September 20, 2015, 03:21:40 PM
The fun shoot was nothing but good stuff. Thanks Big Al for a great place to shoot.

Great meeting Kevin and John and their wives.

I have to use both arms to cock four of the gun I had there. Both my arms are sore this morning. I don't whine, I take ibuprofen.

I think I'm finally getting the full potential from my Diana 470th. 3 bulls at 100 yds. Two holes touching, one a half inch away.

John let me shoot his RWS 54. Three shots at 50yds, three bulls, I'm in love again.

Chuck verified the old BAM B4 I just re-built is a tack driver.

Left the house at 6am, picked-up Little Al in Hilton Head, got to the range at 1030am, left at 7pm, dropped Al off, got home at 1130pm. A very good day.

Tim likes walking too far......but I guess 3 shots in 3/4"at 100 yards would be worth it...hehehe

Big Kudos to Big Al for giving us so much room to shoot in ..... We never thought about it the first time around, but He took the range out to 100 yards the second time we got together and everybody loves going long now

I hadn't shot in ages and had changed or added optics to all my guns and converted the stoeger x20 Tim gave me to gas ram too so I spent a lot of time chasing scopes setings......in the end I shot some of my best springer groups ever with the stoeger and had a blast blasting reactive targets, corks and chalk rounds with my Nervoustrigger HPA'd QB...

Made new shooting friends with Kevin and Brenda and John and Annette, saw some of Little Al's (AeroMagnum) latest cast bullets and proved I'm the only person that can start the lawn mower....was a great day

I've still got a lot of spoons left from the original package of 38 that I picked up at Sam's for under $10.00 and plan to make at least 3 more spoon spinner targets, so that we can at least have one in front of most tables to shoot at more directly.

Probably just do 6 spoons per stand. If I have enough spoons left over, I'll make a 4th.

I will make the stands a lot more sturdy this time. The one we have been shooting at, was the first I had ever made, so it has its short comings.

The next ones will be a lot better though. :D

Thanks!

That's awesome! I want to see what kinds of modifications have been done to them on youtube, should be interesting to see what kind of increase in performance some have been able to achieve.

You plan to try and milk some of these for more power Big A?

Thanks!

Please bring your P17 to the next get together, just noticed that you have one and would like to shoot spoon spinners with one...see how well it makes the spoons spin from like 10-15 yards or so.

Thanks!

I was so intrigued with your Hatsan 125 .25 Vortex and compact buddy bottle from Benjiman to have noticed much of anything else...other than that very unique stock on that one Disco.

Thanks, look forward to making some spoons spin with it! ;D

Well after many attempts to get my gamo big cat 950 zeroed  with my Hawke scope with no success I finally fixed it by bending the barrel in the leg of the engine hoist. Now I can bring it next week to the shoot.

Post by: airgunwarriors on October 01, 2015, 12:36:48 AM
I have been working on some new, compact targets for us to have some fun with. I think you all will really like them. They are all reactive and most will require some serious marksmanship in order to get a reactive reward for slamming some lead into them. :D

Looking very forward to it.

I'm going to bring a pack of hot dogs for whoever wants some.

Thanks,

Lil Al.

Post by: airgunwarriors on October 01, 2015, 03:21:11 PM
If o.k. with Tim or if enough room, I would like to take along (2) 3.5-gallon buckets, stacked inside of each other for more space of course, so that we can try to get the targets off the ground by a couple feet or more. Just set a 2x4 across them and then place targets the 2x4s or, use current target stands that are already there and place them on the (2) buckets.

If everyone was would tale along (2) buckets each, we could get just about all of the knock down type targets up and off of the ground some...make them more visible.

Just a thought.

Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: airgunwarriors on October 01, 2015, 03:40:16 PM
Here's an example of some new "explosive" knock-down targets that I am making for the next get together. I will be using 3/4" x 1.5" in length pvc, plugging one end and then filling a little more than 1/4 of the way up with colored chalk line powder.
(the one pictured is 1/2" pvc)

Would like to set up at 50-yards, so that hitting them will be more challenging (for some of us) and gratifying.

I will place little stick-on bulls-eyes on the center of them, so that you get a nice burst of powder when slammed just right. ;D

I'll make enough to get us through the day.

Post by: lefteyeshot on October 07, 2015, 12:30:08 AM
Good news, Big Al! I be 'der.

Kevin, several months ago I bought a refurb .177 Striker 1000 Vortex from Midway or Field Supply for $104 and put a TF 3-7x32AO scope on it. Haven't shot it a lot, jury's still out. I'll bring it and we can compare notes.

Thought about trying .25 cal and thought a 1000 or 95 would be the cheapest way. Don't Know.

I wonder if someone could bore out and re-rifle my RS2 .22 barrel to .25 cal or would it be to thin or for that matter the .177 to .20 or get new barrels from Archie and do that? Huummm.

Hey guys hope everyone made it through the once in a 1,000 year rain as they call it, glad to here the fun shoot is still on. I may be able to make it but no promises, I have read the entire thread and it sounds like you guys have a great time, love the part about cooking hot dogs on the fire. Looks like ya'll usually have a meeting place then everyone joins the caravan to Big Al's little slice of heaven. If I come I will probably bring one or two of my kids, they are 14 and 16 and 19 if that's ok. I have a lot of questions about PCP guns, thinking of joining the dark side....lol. I know ya'll can answer all of them and I would love to shoot some if I may. But if I don't make it will there be another one in November? Just got done doing a tune on my NP XL 1100 and smoothed her out a little, still have to go get some brass washers and get them right and put in and also going to check out the barrel crown, I may do a recrowning as well. I also ordered all the parts from Crosman to change my NP XL 1100 over to a 725 .25 cal this past Friday if they come in I might change her out and bring it to play with, the guy said 7 to 10 days but one can hope...lol anyways can I get the address and the meeting plan if there is one.....thanks....

I was new to the shoot last month and there is not a better group of airgun enthusiast to meet in SC. There will be more than a few PCP's you can shoot to get you over the top hooked on them. :) I am bringing My Flying Dragon 34 fpe Tuned .22 cal PCP this time.

Jerry, come on down. Those "other people" will have to turn you on to the PCP. I had one, I couldn't miss. I sold it. I prefer something that rattles my teeth and takes a few second to re-focus my eyes after shooting.

I'll PM you the address if you want to GPS it to the range and my number if you want to link up somewhere. Later, Tim.

Go, Cocks.

"HATSANS"--- You said Hatsans, hard hitters. We got Hatsans. Chuck's got a 155 .22 I sold him. Kevin's
got 3 or 4. I've got 5. Al's got the PCP. We got turkey guns.

Any way, got the CFR zeroed. Really likes RWS Misterkuglen.  Striker 1000 Vortex likes them also after I took the broke scope off and used open sights.

we got a little bit wet, but nothing serious. We weathered the storm that passed through, kept right on shooting and had a capitol time. ;D

I would like to thank Big Al for his generosity, as it is very much appreciated!

Looking forward to our next get together next month and hopefully all will be in attendance, along with some new faces.

Maybe next time, we can get the fire going and roast some hot dogs, the weather should be just right for it.

Happy shooting,

Ok, an update, the 14th of November isn't going to work my Grandson will be with us that weekend and he is to much to handle while shooting unless he is shooting....

So what do yall think about either the 7th or 21st of November?
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: lefteyeshot on October 12, 2015, 09:38:08 PM
Either or, or better yet both days.

Jerry, I got some in the bull at 100yards with my .177 Diana 470th. but not near as tight as Al's. My .177 Dominator carbine was good at 50 yards, ok at 75 and I clipped the bottom of the 18' X 12" splatter targets at 100. About the same with my .22 Mendoza RM3000 at 50, so-so at 75, "hit" the 100 yard target.

Al, I thought you did that with Big Nasty Hatsan PCP not FDPCP, I'm impressed.

Either or, or better yet both days.

Jerry, I got some in the bull at 100yards with my .177 Diana 470th. but not near as tight as Al's. My .177 Dominator carbine was good at 50 yards, ok at 75 and I clipped the bottom of the 18' X 12" splatter targets at 100. About the same with my .22 Mendoza RM3000 at 50, so-so at 75, "hit" the 100 yard target.

Al, I thought you did that with Big Nasty Hatsan PCP not FDPCP, I'm impressed.

Nice Tim, sounds like you were busy, Heck I'm with you both days sounds good to me..... ;D

Can't say I have met Joe but that is some eagle eye sight even if He can see .68" at 100. I just received My Hatsan model 135 25 cal today, shot some in the back yard 10 or so shots. That cocking force makes my 150 and 125 vortex seem like a kids gun. I cocked it a few times with one hand then switched to 2 for the rest. It says that the cocking force is 75 lbs.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: Sfttailrdr46 on October 14, 2015, 07:05:58 PM
 ;D .68 paint balls at 50 yards are do able with a nice 4x12 scope even with a springer just easier with a PCP for those who are springer challenged  ::) ;) ;D ;D

Post by: lefteyeshot on October 15, 2015, 01:42:25 PM
50 or a 100, maybe if I don't drink to much coffee.

Kevin, Is your new 135 and the 150 springers? My 135 and 155 are both springers and cocking is about the same to me. Both two handed. But you're saying 125 Vortex is easier? My 100x and 200s carbine are two hand cocking also.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: grimeszee on October 15, 2015, 02:15:31 PM
Yes My 150 & 135 are springers, and the 125 is a Vortex. the cocking effort on the 135 is doable with one arm but my elbow is inflamed right now so I used two hands after about 3 or so 1 handed. My 100x is an easy one handed springer. When I first got the 125 it used to kick my tail, but after a couple weeks of shooting 40 or fifty per day it became easy.

Hey guys how does my NP XL 1100 compare to the  135 and the 150 cocking effort? It's not to bad  (I'm a big boy) but it does wear on me after a while.

Post by: grimeszee on October 15, 2015, 10:03:23 PM
NP XL 1100 cocking effort 47 lbs, Hatsan 135 75 lbs, Hatsan 150 57 lbs. When we meet on the 7th of November I will let you take them for a spin and you can judge for yourself.

If you make it Chuck don't forget the 155. Also, we'll be shootin' paint balls so bring the B3. I'm bringing the Bam B4 and the Peak/XS B4-2 (the ancient one). Got to put a mil dot scope on the old one, got one on the Bam. Lookout paint balls.

Besides everything else usually I bring I'll be bringing the .177 Hatsan Torpedo 100x and and the little .177 TF M8 to sale if anyone wants one. Don't have a price in mind yet. But it'll be affordable with or without scopes.

The devil made me do it. I just got a refurbed Striker 1000 Vortex in .25 and got a  Webley ValueMax springer in .20 coming. Decided I had to have at least one .25 and .20. It's an addiction. Somebody stop me before I gotta' wear glasses. Later you all's, Tim.

Tim a good springer can hang with the PCP crowd shot for shot out to 50 yards easy the limiting factor is past 60 yards the springers can't push the heavy pellets hard enough to carry well past the 50 to 60 yard mark. I shoot both with excellent accuracy within their limitations. The real key is consistency and practice  ;) ;D
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: grimeszee on October 21, 2015, 12:17:06 AM
I don't know about that 60 yard limit, I used my Hatsan 125 vortex to wack a 4" spinner @ 100 yards with 26 grain lead 6 mil dot holdover at the September fun shoot.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: Sfttailrdr46 on October 21, 2015, 12:37:09 AM
 ;D Not a true limit just what I do. I haven't had the opportunity to shoot my .20 RX2, .177 D460 or .22 TX200 MK III past 60 yards so I don't know how well I can shoot them at that distance. For me 1/2" to 3/4" groups at 50 yards are my personal requirement with anything that I will use for pests or hunting. It is just much easier with the PCP rifles I own. My .25 Marauder Gen II and Daystate Huntsman XL are both consistent 100 yard shooters and even the AA S510 .177 at full power and JSB Momster Diabolo's 13.43 gr will do well at 100 yards on a good day with a light breeze and not too much coffee
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: grimeszee on October 21, 2015, 12:53:44 AM
Fair enough, my goal was to see if I could hit the spinner at all. I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: lefteyeshot on October 21, 2015, 01:42:05 AM
I would like to get consistant groups where I want them at 100yds. But you got to be in the zone, practice and yes, little or no coffee or nicotine. The zone is hard to do with lots of guys around you want to b.s. with about air guns and 100yds to shoot over is hard to find for practice.

First I tried the .177 Hatsans 135 and 155. Close but no cigar. I got to go back to them later though with what I've learned, or maybe the Mach 12.5. But it kicks like a mule. Broke it's scope last month at Big AL's.

With my .177 470th I zeroed at 50yds so I was in the bull using two mil dots of hold under then shot at 100yds with two mil dots of hold over. 5 or 7 shots and a couple more click of adjustment. I got the last 3 round group in the lower left quarter of a 3" x 2 1/2" bull on a big splatter target. Two were almost touching and the third was a half inch away. But somedays the magic ain't 'der. I'm thinking some light strips of fabric on sticks at 50, 75 and 100yds.

What I really need it a 54 Air KIng or a 56th. Juggle some bills or sale some guns.

Later you all's, Tim.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: HYspd on October 21, 2015, 11:38:18 AM
the difference after 60 yards is POWER and ease of operation.....

a BT65 at 950fps and a 150 at 760 fps, both with the same tin of JSB 25 ammo.......BT pre charged 9 shot bolt action repeater, 150 50+ pound cocking force under lever single shot

at 50 yards the 150 takes precision to match what the BT does with it's eyes closed.....at 100 yards with precision the BT will hit a 2" target until you run out of air, the 150 will try to run you out of "arm" while you figure out the ballistic arcing....

That's why I sold you the 78D pcp. This is just me but with pcp it's too easy.

Big Al had 3 holes touching in the bull at 100yds with his FDPCP last time we shot up there.

UP-DATE INFORMATION ABOUT ALS' LOWCOUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT

Here is a list of details that may help you better understand how best to prepare, what to expect, what to bring and how to get to the Als' LowCountry Fun-Shoot Event:

I would like to start by telling anyone considering attending this Fun-Shoot Event, that Big Al has certainly been Blessed with obtaining what really is a true "Slice of Heaven", in every aspect! It is absolutely perfect in it lay-out, provides plenty of room and is perfect in every way for having a productive, educational and fun filled Fun-shoot Event, that allows one to shoot up to 100-yards from the firing line! You will certainly be able to put your airgun collection through their paces!

We are extremely safety oriented, in an effort to ensure a very safe and great time for all...SAFETY FIRST!

There will be several airguns for you to check out and in most cases...have the oppurtunity to shoot! :D

When: November/07/2015

Time: 9:00am

Where: Please send Big Al/OleTomCat a PM for GPS details or directions

What you should consider taking with you:

*Folding chairs, portable canopy/open tent of some sort for protection from the sun, protective eye wear, folding table, plenty of pellets/ammo, lots of air if PCP shooting, bug spray, shooting rest, drinks, snacks and targets
(Although we will be providing hot dogs to be cooked over an open fire, you may still want to take along some snacks or anything else that you may want to eat or share.)

*If you have a chrony and would like to know exactly how well your airgun/s are performing, this Fun-Shoot Event is a great opportunity to do so. If you do not have one, there's always someone that does have one and I am sure would be willing to help you out with theirs-

*There's no electrical hook-ups at the "Slice of Heaven", so please keep that in mind...nor is there any running water, which is something else to consider-

*Although there is no out house, there's plenty of privacy in the surrounding woods (might want to take along some TP), and a short drive will take you to a more accommodating restroom-

*I have been reading talks of Marksmanship competitions, so be sure to bring your "A Game"-

*As far as sleeping arrangements for those that may want to arrive the night before, there are a few reasonably priced hotels in the area. Here's a list of some: Holiday Inn or Hampton Inn in the Santee area...close by-

*Be ready to make new friends and learn even more about our awesome sport! In past events, many new friendships have been developed and I am sure that many more will continue to materialize.

Really look forward to seeing our regulars and meeting/greeting new attendees!

If any questions or concerns, please post them here or send Big Al a PM.

Happy shooting,

Lil Al
(AGW)

     Al, How do you want this competition to go. Sounds like fun. I guess how many paintballs you can hit in a row. Like what we did at the last GTA shoot. What distances do you think. My son talked to Joe, said that he is coming.

Tom,

That's a good idea. Keeps things moving along and is a good challenge.
("Paintballs in a row, like at GTA event)

I'll leave that up to y'all to decide, but I do like the above and can make a very nice, functional stand for it that it tall.

Thanks!

25 yards for Springers, Not benchrest style, must be shooting ability.....

50 yards for PCP, Not Benchrest either...

A simple rest may be used, single sand bag, pillow or what ever you want as long as you are holding most of the gun...

25 yards my a_s. My XS B4-2 at 25, my 470th. at 50. Rather I hit'em or not I'll try. Knew I should have bought that 54 instead of the 470th.

Just kidding I'm looking forward to seeing what happens. It's gonna' be fun stuff. Still bringing my 75 and 100yard targets.

     Sounds good guys. Can one person compete in both springer, and PCP? Looks like we only have 10 or 12 attending this time. With the holidays coming  some of people can't make it. Joe, a springer at 25 yds, I don't think we have enough daylight.  Would also like to thank Jeff, and Trenier for the donation.

Tom."

I too would like to thank Jeff of Trenier Outdoors, LLC, as he has also donated some prizes for the winners of any competitions that we may have among ourselves at the Als' LowCountry Fun-Shoot!

Pellets-

Few packs of heavy weight paper targets-

3 large sand bag rests-


Can be seen at: www.trenieroutdoors.com (http://www.trenieroutdoors.com)

Whatever Team wins the 304 SS Stainless Steel Starling Spinner Target, is going to love it! We have the Rat Spinner and it stands up great to some very hard hitting airguns!

Thanks again Trenier Outdoors, LLC! :D

Happy shooting ya'll!

HAVE GOT TO GET OUR KNOCK DOWN/SPINNER TARGETS, ETC, OFF THE GROUND!

If everyone brings along at least two 5-gallon buckets and a 2x4 or 2x6 4'-5' in length to lay across the two 5-gallon buckets, we can get many of our non paper targets up off the ground and easier to shoot/have a clear line of sight at. Like the tin can knock down targets, rubber corks, plastic golf balls and the competition paint ball stand for sure!

We've already got a few stands out there, just need the buckets to elevate them.

The more elevated stands...the better! Especially for the bowling ball pins! :D

Just a suggestion y'all,

Lil Al
(AGW)





Just a suggestion.

Please keep that in mind for those that are coming.

Paint balls should hold up in anything less than a down pour, even then they won't dissolve before we can try to hit them....

This afternoon I zeroed my old XS or Peak B4-2 under lever at 25yds. $30 off Gun Brokers. The ancient one. Put a Hawke 3-9X32AO mildot lum scope on it. Shooting .177 RWS Match Diabolo W/C 7.3grs 5 shot average 638 fps. Trigger pull averaged 1lbs 9oz. Zeroed on those 1" orange stick'em targets. Holes about touching.

Re-built that gun about 3 yrs ago. A 29 coil spring came out of it. Put a 33 coil B3 spring and leather piston seal in it. Re-finished the stock and spray painted all the metal with P/U bed liner. Going to put a new breach seal in it tomorrow.

Paint ball buster? One can only hope. Later you all.

I disassembled it lubed a couple of spots I noticed, then reassembled added 1/2" extention to the butt stock and shot these groups offhand @5M open sights. The top target is a 4 shot group and 6 shot group using RWS wadcutters.

Paintball results:

Tim, aka Lefteyeshot, Killed three paintballs in a row from 25 yards with a springer.

Kevin, aka Grimeszeee, killed the only PCP paintball at 50 yards.

Brenday, Kevin's wife actually clipped a T just below a paintball at 25 yards with a 2240 pistol on CO2 with open sights.....

I had a blast...shot a cricket that probably cost more than i paid for my van....had a case of beginner's luck and shot a paintball the first time i ever tried...with a springer....a Stoeger X20s that was a freebie from Lefteyeshot that i had converted  to gas ram myself and had just mounted a new cp 3-9x32 scope on so it wasn't really zero'd yet....and the non-adjustible AO was set way to far out (need to fix that)....Oletomcat had just installed a CDT GRT-III trigger in it and it's had the "blue printing" treatment that I learned from him andt is showing some good potential to be a fun shooter


put a cp 4-16x40AO on Super QB and was amazed at how well the new Crosman Piranha pellet shot in the QB as well as my Hatsan (elephant rated springer) Torpedo 155.....Oletomcat shot a few in his FDPCP and they grouped well.....the QB would easily put 5 under a quarter at 25 and could do tons bettter if there had been more blood in my caffiene system....while working at getting the new scope settled in, it put 3 in a half inch on a steel plate spinner at 50 yards and the Poi as very close to that of the JSB 18.1s i usually shoot in it....


shot a few bowling pins until we had to move them farther out to lessen the chance of shots returning to sender, but the real highlight was BLASTING the plasric pratice golf balls I had with me....reactive targets are just more fun the a barrel of monkeys on good day and those golf balls put a smile on Oletomcat's and my faces when they went "thataway"

I think the paint balls were melting from the rain or maybe Joe Palone was shooting them all. I managed to kill a few with my RX2 .20 at 50 yards but the cold rain made for some interesting challenges.  ::) ::) ::) Nobody was in a hurry to reset targets or put up fresh paint balls. We all had a great day of friendship and shooting and if youse guys hadn't hogged all the sunshine it might have been just a tinsey bit better ;D ;D

We shoot in Cross by the lake west of Monks Corner, you probably know where that is. Watch this thread and we'll hook you up with directions when the time comes.

As far as powder burners, that would be up to Big Al. It's his land.

Later.

Just got back from the shoot, what a blast we had I did pretty well with a 23 for my first time. I will let terry give you his story, all I can say is we showed up to a gun fight with a couple of butter knives. After I turned my power adjuster down 2 turns I finished the day  with an 8 out of 12. I wasn't aware I could rest my elbow on my knee while kneeling until the next guy shot. so I gave up at least 2 points there. After more seat time with the XS46U Ill give that a try. I will post some pics once I process them.

Had fun at the FT shoot and learned quite a bit in the process. I was the only oddball there with my Whisper. I saw guns worth more than my truck. I hit all the targets except for maybe two, just not all in the killzone. Mark put on a real good lunch for us and was a very gracious host. Rob pointed me in the right direction for finding a pellet that would group and invited us to come shoot in GA. Met a great bunch of guys.
And for what you really wanted to know:
I got 6 out of 60...  :P

Richard, check out the BSA 6-24x44 for $130.  Great clarity, a fine etched glass reticle, and side focus.  I've had about a dozen different scopes in the $75 - $200 price range and this one is far and away my favorite.

Thanks for the info guys. I have a gift certificate for Gander Mountain, so I went in there and picked up a Bushnell Custom 4-12x 40 A/O. Looks like a pretty decent quality for the price point I was at. Also they will mount and bore sight it for free tomorrow when my DISCO arrives. Then I'll be taking it out to the range North of Mocks Corner to dial it in at 30M.

This is a bad thing for me to get into as I have a really addictive personality. I think I'll be spending mucho cash on this hobby in the near future, as I already have my share of firearms. This opened a new avenue in All-Things-Guns for me.

Good, that leaves two B3-1 AK's. Gonna' keep those. Same price we agreed on. That's a bargain. Want a 3-7X32AO TF scope to go with it? I'll include the mounts. Lens covers are extra. Kidding. Sure you don't need an Air Hawk. They're pretty.

Started to offer you the Beeman Mach 12.5, but no, I like the way it makes my ears and teeth vibrate when I shoot it. It only cut my eyebrow once but I didn't drop it. It broke the scope came with it. Need a Hammers.

Spent $65 on big and small splatter targets for 25,50,75 and 100 yards and 2 tins of those SwissArms pointed pellets made in Serbia. For the fun shoot.

Anybody bringing paint balls. Ha, Ha ,Ha.

So my 'DISCO showed up today, the celebration has been short lived however. I cant seem to get air to stay in the "dang" gun. I pump and the air comes right out the barrel.. Any ideas? The bolt won't pull to the rear either.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: dv8eod on November 17, 2015, 06:39:13 PM
It might seem like a silly question, but is the safety on? Some guns won't allow the bolt to draw back if the safety is on. Worse comes to worse, you might have to dismantle it to see where it is locked up. Once you get the hammer off of the valve, it should start holding air.

Problem solved! I was a 76Y20 in the Army for 13 years. I pulled her apart. ( I would have anyways) And found it was filthy from sitting in a warehouse for gosh knows how long.

I am doing all that I can to try and be there with Tim on the 5th!

I really want to make this one, as I still have some prizes from Trenier Outdoors, LLC (www.trenieroutdoors.com (http://www.trenieroutdoors.com)), that we can use for any competitions that may be drummed up! :D

Also, if Al brings "Big Nasty", I have a tin of the 33.95-grain .25 JSB pellets for him from Trenier Outdoors, LLC.

I'm also working on a new, robust, challenging, fun and rewarding target stand for all to enjoy!

Big thanks to Trenier Outdoors, LLC for the prizes and look forward to seeing you all there.

Respectfully,

Lil Al.

OK, I'll decide which Storm and bring it. I also got one of those AirArms Classics in a wood thumbhole stock and it's the same gun and new. The Storms are pawn shop finds. $60 for one and $35 for the other.

Had a little wind fall and I'm tryin' to resist ordering a Diana 56th but it's hard. Quitin' drinking was easier than this. Golf balls at 75 yards would be cool. Wonder when they gonna' make a 34th or 350th.

I will be grabbing another Center Point 3-9x32 for the Titan......the CP 4-16x44 on the QB is slated to go on the Torpedo once I get another UTG SWAT to put on the QB, then I'll need to learn to shoot that monster springer....

I went to the indoor range here in Summerville yesterday and got my new DISCO zero'd @ 20 yd's. I'm very impressed with how easy this rifle is to shoot. Since I don't have anything to stabilize it, i.e....lead sled I did what I could just resting on the LOW bench's ( I'm 6'3"). When I returned home I took a few shots at a 1" spinner in my backyard thats about 30' from my bedroom window. Nailed it 5/5 times. I'm hoping when I come to this fun shoot maybe I can get a little help getting it truly zero'd in at 25 yd's. I also just placed my order for 6.5" TKO. The gun isn't nearly as bad as I expected from reviews on youtube, but it may be alarming to neighbors. I love plinking out of my bedroom windows as I have multiple targets set in my yard. As i'm sure many of you have stabilizers I hope it won't be to much to ask of your expertise, time, and the use of the rest to maybe help me get'r done. As the name implies I have shaky hands, and really need to practice better breathing, but I'm sure with a little help and a few shots from a stable platform this little gem will be a squirrels worst nightmare.

So I have a question for you pro's my disco is hitting dime sized groupings @ 30 yd's. Is that where I should be zeroing to? I've noticed that there is a huge pellet drop from 30 yd's to 50 yd's. More than I'm used to with firearms is this normal and where do most of you zero you scopes at?
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: grimeszee on November 20, 2015, 06:28:33 PM
Are you seeing a big pellet drop or are you using some other method to determine the drop I.E. chairgun? pellet drop is a function of velocity and ballistic coefficient of the pellet in use. JSB pellets are one of the more efficient  energy retaining pellets so the amount of drop over a given distance is less than say RWS and Crosman. I hope that helps.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: Mr Shaky Hands on November 20, 2015, 06:35:39 PM
I was at a bench and had the rifle in a rest. So at 30 yd's dime groups and zeros on target. At 50 yd's in the same rest shooting center mass the pellet drops a couple inches. What range should I be trying to zero this thing. I set the zero at 30 because I figure most targets will be between 0 - 60 yards so 30 was my mid line. I was shooting Premier HP .22

Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: grimeszee on November 20, 2015, 06:58:31 PM
You need to chrony it to find the optimal zero range.

It'll be fun learning. This is completely diff than firearms. Working with a fraction of the energy so I guess my expectations need to come back down to earth. I'll enjoy picking your minds and getting to know this new rifle. I cant complain, it punches through 3/4 inch particle board at 30 ft.

Jerry, did you ever put a new spring or piston seal in your B3. If not bring it and we'll do a quick rebuild.
I'll bring the parts and some molly and washer or pennies. I bring a seerr and seer spring if it needs them.

 Ok Tim i will bring it with me. Maybe you can give it some new life... :P

Well, I couldn't stand it no longer. I ordered the Diana 56th from PA. With the coupon off the back of the catalogue I got it for $832. Ordered a Hammers 3-9X40AO for $68 off amazon to go with it. Yes, I am tickled. Hope it last.

Congrats on the new addition, can't wait to see it and take it for a spin....hehe oh yea thanks for the heads up on the hammers scope got one on the way.... ;)

TKO Muzzle Brake 6.5" has been ordered, Air gun oil and bore cleaner, .22 cleaning pellets. Now for the tech stuff, how do I lighten up the trigger pull on this little number.

Ditch the cleaning pellets and bore cleaner, get a piece of nice Jet Line, you will see a long piece making up our Firing line at the shoot I have more in the truck, tie a loop in the middle and use it to pull patches through the barrel.  Do Not Use any Powder Burner solvents in your gun, they tend to eat rubber and plastic seals, get a bottle of Goo Gone put some on a clean patch and pull it through the barrel and look at the goop that come out, repeat a couple of time with clean damp patches then start dry patching until the patches come out as clean and dry as they go in.

Replace the trigger return spring with one out of a pen.

Like Kevin Said here, replace the trigger return spring, it feels like it came off of a '71 350 exhaust valve.

After you shoot that a while and when you feel you are ready to dive into the trigger there are lots of little mods you can do to improve on that trigger or you can buy a trigger group for a MRod (Benjamin Marauder) and drop it in there.

I'll tell ya, the more I shoot this Benj Disco the more I'm falling in love with the thing.
My Boyds stock shipped today, I'm jazzed. I never thought Air rifles could be so fun.
I put a pellet trap outside so now I can shoot in my yard all I want with confidence that I'm not going to injure anyone or their property.
Fortunately the house directly behind mine is vacant and has been for quite some time, but I still don't want to worry about a ricochet.

I received my 125 sniper from airgunpro today and to my surprise it was the Camo version. I love the way it looks and man that thing cracks with any thing under 10.5 grains. I'll have it dailed in before next week maybe for the paintballs :) I also have a Mod 95 .177 on the way. The air tank is filled up as well so I guess the Dragon, 2400KT, and Disco will be making the trip this time. I also will be bringing 1.5" tall plastic soldiers to try your accuracy skills at 25 and 50 yards.

New brass trigger from Alliance installed. WOW what a difference. I also added a second barrel band, requires a little bit of re sighting but this will be very nice for shot groups once I get used to the new trigger pull. It must be 1/3 of what the stock trigger pull was. My SS Evolution is out for delivery also via UPS right now. This should be a nice little squirrel assassin set up by the end of the week. I just need my muzzle brake to show up. Right now if I calm my self and control my breathing i can put pellet upon pellet in the same hole @ 15 yards, with the occasional flyer only being outside the group maybe 1/2 an inch. I've also managed to work 500 pellets down range so far so she's all but broken in. I really love this little DISCO. I find i get my best grouping and consistency from 1500 - 900 PSI which is fine by me means less pumping.

That's a really nice gun, Richard. Finally got the 56th out back and also the Air Hawk Elite refurb I bought 3-4 months ago. I didn't like the scope I got for the 56th. I'll put it on something else. The Elite's trigger pull was 5 lbs. The trigger screw was out about and eight to a quarter in. Loaded it laid it across my lap pointing down range and screwed it in till it fired and backed out one turn. Now the pull is 3 lbs. I want to sale my 100X so all the trigger screws are all the way in. Here's some numbers.

Diana 56th Trigger avg 1lbs 12oz.        Air Hawk Elite trigger 3 lbs           Hatsan 100X Trigger 4lbs6oz
JSB Monsters 13.43grs avg. 808 fps     RWS Supermags 9.3grs 830 fps   JSB 13.43grs 870fps
RWS Supermags 9.3 grs 985fps           JSB Match 7.3 grs 995 fps            Supermags 9.3grs 1031fps
JSB Exact 8.44grs 1050                                                                          JSB Match 7.33grs 1063
JSB Match 7.3grs 1120

Still looking for the right scope and pellet for the 56th (got dark)
Elite and 100X were driving nails.

It is suppose to be cool this weekend so I will have the fire going, we may be able to get the water warm enough to get the job done, do you have a dowel rod and wet/dry paper too?  If not I can bring them.

Good, that leaves two B3-1 AK's. Gonna' keep those. Same price we agreed on. That's a bargain. Want a 3-7X32AO TF scope to go with it? I'll include the mounts. Lens covers are extra. Kidding. Sure you don't need an Air Hawk. They're pretty.

Started to offer you the Beeman Mach 12.5, but no, I like the way it makes my ears and teeth vibrate when I shoot it. It only cut my eyebrow once but I didn't drop it. It broke the scope came with it. Need a Hammers.

Spent $65 on big and small splatter targets for 25,50,75 and 100 yards and 2 tins of those SwissArms pointed pellets made in Serbia. For the fun shoo

Anybody bringing paint balls. Ha, Ha ,Ha.

Lil Al, Do you still want to try the P-17 out this weekend? I will have it and the Webley Alecto that you haven't seen yet. I will have some 1.5" little green Army men you can glue to the top of the PVC pipe if you wold like. I find them a bit more challenging because the body of them is so small. I have been practicing with my B3-1 at 20 yards so far and it is great fun. ::)

What a diff a pellet makes. My JSB Exact Jumbo Heavy Diablo .22 18.13 Gr pellets showed up from PA today. Holy grouping batman. I would have been one to say a pellet is a pellet. I would have been sooooo wrong. I gently washed them in dish detergent, laid them out on a towel and dried them and lightly lubed them, cleaned my barrel and put 5/5 dead center of my empty Crosman Premier can @ 15.5 yards the grouping looks like a figure 8. I look at it and only see what I would call 2 very closely grouped shots but it is in fact 5. I'm getting addicted.

Yeah, it's an addiction but it's still a lot less than my bar tab use to be. Plus the wife likes the mood I'm in after a couple or three hours out back shooting. I do also, like mellow and frosty, everything be's copacetic. Later, You all.

I'll make sure to bring a bunch of shoot n see targets next time, and I'll try to avoid hitting the "dang" fence post on my way out next time too. Hope it isn't damaged, if it is let me know I'll come out and replace it. BTW excellent Gumbo, let you wife know I appreciated the lunch.

Good stuff today. Good friends, good conversation, lot of guns to look at and shoot. A little to windy for the 100 yard line. Sold a couple of guns. Al installed a new GRT-III trigger in one of my old Storms, the one in the Benjamin T.H. stock. Don't touch it till you're ready to shoot. It's nice. Got to try out my new 56th at something more that 25 yards and shoot the Air Hawk Elite I got awhile back and my old Dominator. Got to shoot Geoff's FWB 150. Sweet, I made a triangle of touching holes. Al got the trigger on my Storm about as soft as the 150's.

Missed Jerry and his wife and Little AL. Hope you guys and gal make it next time. Later, Tim.

Richard, we all do what we can. But if you got to leave early you got to leave. No problem. Just enjoy. I have no plans or real priorities. Just living the dream. Shooting, sex and good food. Me, Al and Chuck got out of there about 6-6:30. I got home about 9-9:30. If anyone wants to know, it's 145 miles from Al's little piece of heaven to my front door. But I go through the woods. You drive trucks as long as I did you hate the interstate highway.

Again though, it was a good day. I got to make myself talk less and shoot more.

How far off of the optical zero are you on the scope when it breaks?

I can take one more turn off of that spring before we get to close to No preload.

Try this scope here, it is rated for magnum springers: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0099XIJKC/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=30PBNUOR2JYBY&coliid=I1VORNTZPY54DL (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0099XIJKC/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=30PBNUOR2JYBY&coliid=I1VORNTZPY54DL)

Post by: grimeszee on December 06, 2015, 09:35:45 PM
 It wasn't that far off from optical zero. I think the no preload won't be a problem actually, throw a spacer or washer at the bottom mabey to add a slight preload.

Learned a valuable lesson today, when assembling my air rifle I should go a little easier with the tightening. I stripped the Stock lug and the pressure tube completely out. So a phone call to Crosman and $25.00 later I have new ones on the way. Got ahold of Al and we're gonna make a little project out of it. I've had this problem all my life with over tightening stuff, my dad used to get so mad at me. I don't think I've ever worked on anything without stripping a "dang" nut bolt screw etc....

Luckily Al will be there for reassembly to make sure I don't try to muscle every darn screw.

Hey Al and Kevin, I ordered that Hammers and was disappointed. The reason I ordered it was I thought it was the same scope as the two I ordered from archie and one from amazon way back and use on my magnums. I just ordered two more from archie. The scope you're talking about is smaller. The view through the scope is too small, the distance between eye relief that's to close and to far away is very narrow. Mil dot reticle seems smaller. It's an inch shorter and the rear part from the mag adj. ring to the eye piece is overall smaller. I ordered it for the 56th but put it on the self and used the UGT off my 135. I'll use it on something smaller. Maybe the new QB 57 I got coming. The two Hammers I just ordered will be coming with the 57 and some other parts and stuff I ordered from archie.. I'm going to use one on the 135 and one on my Mach 12.5 that just broke the scope that came with it.

Archie's are like $59.55.

My 350 Pro Compact came. Elegant in it's simplicity. Later, Tim. Stay frosty.

The stuff came last night and I just opened the box. The 2 Hammers I got from archie are just like the one you guys looked at on amazon and I order a few weeks ago. They're smaller than the ones I order way back when from archie and amazon, not just another model. I guess Hammers is tryin' to save a buck. I can still use them on some of my other guns but I'm going to order UGTs for the 56th, 350 and 135. Sorry 'bout 'dat mis- information. Later.

Since the Disco is out of commission for a few I've decided I don't want to go to long without shooting. I placed an order last night for an Hatsan AT44S-10 Long QE in .22 cal. It should be here by Friday. I'm excited.  I've read many reviews and some very extensive reviews and think that for the money it's probably the best bang for my buck. I know its cheating to go PCP since they require little shooting skill, but as the name infers Mr. Shaky Hands I need all the help I can get. This will make air rifle #4 in only 1 short month. My savings account is gonna be mad at me. But I'll be happier and calmer and easier to live with. I got it from Airgundepot and after a good offer along with a recent promo code it was very affordable, in fact well below the Marauder which would have been my next choice. At $549 then after a $150 discount it came in at $400 and change with a scope and bipod. That put it at $200 under the best Marauder offer with similar add-ons.

Anyone have a good opinion of AirGun Depot? I placed my order yesterday, paid the additional amount for overnight delivery expecting it to be processed and shipped today for delivery tomorrow. Now they say it won't ship till tomorrow and it probably won't show up till Monday.

Congrats bud.
So after all my bitching about the Hatsan not showing up, it came this morning. I thought I loved the disco, but this thing blows it away. 6 shots to zero, then 40 shots in a row at 17 yards in a quarter sized group. Should be a dime sized group at the distance but look at my name. I think I love everything about this gun. So much so I have a BT65QE on order next in .25 cal. BTW I used the AT44 with my hand pump today and it did kill me, but I'm looking hard for a scuba tank now too.

You only got half a gun. I also ordered a .177 barrel to go with it. Just kidding, Got mine tested also.
I'm thinking the .177 barrel, remove the sights, a big barrel weight, refinish the wood a real liight oak or polyed bare wood, a 6-24X50AO mil dot lum scope I got on the self.

Mind the anti bear trap lever that drops in the breach. If you take it out of the stock the little set screw that holds it in can back out and it's easy to lose as well as the little spring under the lever.

Not yet, but I did confirm the power wheel does change the velocity. I zeroed it at 30 yards and plan to use it for the HFT competitions next year. I am looking into a regulator now but I have to figure out what i wan t the pressure to be. I even shot it with CO2 today and it is much stronger than the Disco on CO2, I can get over 800 shots from my 20 oz tank. :)

Whats you guys's thoughts on the RWS 54 in .22?  I found a good deal on one for $570 with scope and mount. Is that a good deal?
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: lefteyeshot on December 31, 2015, 07:50:25 PM
I don't know if you mean new or used or what scope. If new I don't know if the RWS scope will hold up. They say the RWS scope that comes with the 350 Pro Compact will not hold up.

RWS 54's new:  (some say 54/56th best springer in the world. I don't know yet)

PA               $645 free shpg no scope
AGD            $639 free shpg  no scope
AOA            $558 + shpg      no scope
Amazon      $610 free shpg   scope combo
Amazon      $573+$46 shpg Scope combo

Hope that helps.

I went ahead and ordered the Refurb RWS 54, I couldnt pass it up since I had a credit with Airgundepot it only cost me $150.00. In addition to the credit of course. Now the waiting begins. I hope I love it as much as I've read on the reviews of others.

I just fished shooting My new MRODAIR CP1-M pistol and am blown away. I shot a 140/150 3x without touching a thing on it, and using cheapo Crosman pointed pellets. I got 85 shots on one 12 gram cartridge.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We need to come up with a schedule for the rest of the year so that others that live further away can plan ahead of time to come shoot with us, I need everyone's input on dates through the rest of the year.

So get your calendar out and look it over and lets figure out who has things that can not be moved and will interfere so we can schedule around them.

Things to avoid are major 'family' holidays like Mother's day, we also have to look at the Ky. Shoot dates so that we do not interfere with them either....
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: dv8eod on January 11, 2016, 04:27:22 PM
I really can't come up with dates, as i don't know what my own schedule is most of the time. I'm good with whatever is decided. Maybe we can get the schedule posted on the calendar here with a reminder to check for those that live further out.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: grimeszee on January 11, 2016, 04:30:46 PM
Same here, I would think if we try for the first Saturday of every month and work from there on what is not good, like next month the 6th is Brenda's birthday and I would like to keep both nuts past that date.  ;D

Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: lefteyeshot on January 12, 2016, 03:29:31 PM
The first Saturdays of the months or second Saturdays if the obvious holidays interfere with the first Saturday would look like this: 2/6, 3/5, 4/2, 5/7, 6/4, 7/9(4th.of July), 8/6, 9/10( Labor Day), 10/1, 11/5, 12/3, 1/6/17(New Year's Day)

Me and Miss Baby's birthdays and anniversary don't interfere. Actually she stopped having birthdays when she turned 60 and she never remembers mine anyway and I get her's mixed up between 11/25 and 11/29 and one of us usually forgets the anniversary. She thinks it's 8/29 and I think it's 8/28 and she says, "No, that's the day I picked you up for a one night stand and you never went home." And my Mom and Dad have been gone so long I can't remember the dates of Mother's and Father's Day and I don't have kid's and my step kids wouldn't give me anything anyway and since my wife is older than me giving her anything on Mother's Day ain't allowed.

Later, you all.

Made in Turkey, by Hatsan at the time even though the book doesn't call them out as the manufacturer . If you look close the Quattro trigger is a little different shape at the trigger pull screw.  Book value is $200 for a 95% gun.

Looks like a re-branded 125/135. If you google it first them click PA, AGD or Amazon you'll see a bunch of reveiws and specs. The amazon at the top of the google search says they're out of stock but the one at the bottom show six .177 in stock $221. Great pawn shop find. Later.

I know I'm an enabler,  I went through and did a cleaning and lube job last night. Today after work I sent 40 JSB 18.3 through it and could not be happier with it. I called the pawn shop back today to find out the model of the Beeman they had, and it was sold yesterday after I left. It is easier to shoot than the 125 vortex and 135.

First lets plan on Feb 6th for the next shoot, then March 12th for the one after that, from there out I will work on a schedule...

Next order of Business, my lovely wife came up with the idea of getting shirts made.  We sat down with Custom Ink and worked out a shirt design, Going to try to post the pics below.  Let me know if anyone is interested...

Anyone else want pockets?  I added that to the T-shirt and the price went up by about $5, looking like $25.00 per shirt with the pockets, $20 without.

If Yall want shirts I need to know how many and what sizes so I can place the order.

Here is what it looks like with the pocket and sort of Mildots....

Hollis, back in the 70's when I was a kid I occasionally skydived in Barnwell., mainly meets or competition. Most of the time with my club in Monks Corner. Come shoot with us in Cross. To get a T-shirt you have to know the secret handshake. We'll show it to you when you come shoot. Later, Beau.

So you got in a plane with Bobby Frierson? Don't blame you for jumping out! Hey, I'm looking forward to joining in (air gun fun shoot that is).

Yes, Bobby and Woody but I can't remember his last name. I think he was the one who made 201 jumps in one day to break the record. Come shoot with us. It's no as far from Barwell to Cross as it is from Savannah. I grew up in Charleston but have been in Savannah off and on since '79.

The vast majority of times I've taken off in an airplane is a lot less the the times I've landed in one.

Hey Tim just wanted to give you an update on the status of the B4-1 sidelever, I have been sanding the old finish off and now I'm going to start the refinishing with oil stains.

Historically, and I mean going back 100+ years, Phenix City was the western frontier and it was a pretty wild and loose town. The organized crime that was born from it wasn't broken up until the 60's.

Jerry in the hunter division that we would shoot in you sit on a stool or bucket and use a set of sticks or bipod to shoot with.

Post by: lefteyeshot on February 16, 2016, 12:31:15 PM
Jerry, there are no rules saying you have to hit anything, just shoot at it. Mark emailed be back and said he's in a wheel chair but can stand to shoot. We shoot with sticks and/or a bucket. Ranges are 25 to 55 yards. I'm going to bring Miss Baby to carry the 56th. ( 55 yards, maybe the paint ball buster ) And bring my step-daughter to carry the bread, cheese and wine and hold my shades while I shoot. Jay-bird can carry your gun and his. Mark also said he'd buddy us up with someone who knows the stuff. It's all about the fellowship, seeing how it works and lunch. He said there will be people there from Ga., S.C., N.C. and maybe FL. Man, it'll be fun. Maybe we can cheat. Man, it's in Paradise.

Couple of pellets to check function. When ever I get the old RWS320 and the 631 I bought  out in Santa Fe last week. I'll shoot'em all.

 Need to get the 470th and 56th out and start practicing for May 7. I talked to Mark yesterday. He said 10-55 yard targets. Got to know your hold over and hold under. Wondering how the 631 Lux would do at 55 yrds. 

Mark said pay the $15 when you get there. I'll probably get a room near by Friday afternoon so I don't have to shoot after a 4 hour drive early in the morning. He emailed me a map. Right where I thought it was.

I also did the trigger screw mod to the new Striker 1000S .25 cal and got the pull down to about 2 pounds like the .22 cal Striker. Haven't mounted the scope yet, still breaking it in about 200 pellets so far.  :D

Just added the 3-12x44 Leapers/UTG SWAT full with the 80mm focus wheel to the XS46U and cleaned the top of it off.

The good-
Finally got to meet Jay, glad you got home ok and your mother could quit worrying.  ;)
Got a new scope and pistol I had been looking at. Thanks Tim and Jay.
The Evanix Sniper .45 has never shot better.
The daughter finally showed an interest in shooting airguns. It's still not her .22, though.
The weather was good, the BBQ was great (thanks Al's wife, sorry I can't remember your name at the moment).  :-[

The bad-
Got a new scope and pistol I had been looking at. Thanks Tim and Jay.   :o ;D Already looking at spending 4X more than what I spent on those two items. (You know I gotta justify the purchases by  getting something that needs them  ::)).
Maddison shot up all my pellets and now I'm out until the next order, which might be awhile.   :'( (At least she had fun).
The female foster fitting failed during a tank fill. Looking for a replacement now. Luckily, I have a substitute I can use.
Was stuck in traffic for an hour on the way back home due to construction on I-26.  >:( That was just miserable, sitting there. 

The ugly-
All the housework I had to catch up on before the wife gets home wednesday.  :P
The amount of money to dress up my new toys and replenish my pellet supply.  :'(
After seeing the pictures of Maddison shooting, the wife now wants to come play.  ::) (I'm seeing an even larger pellet bill now).
As soon as the better half gets here, I have to start looking for work in earnest to pay for my playtime and may not be able to make the next shoot.  :'(

I'm filling the tank as I sit here, Al, so it should be all ready to go when you come to pick it up. As a reminder everybody, http://www.psclassic.com/ (http://www.psclassic.com/) for those who wish to attend. As usual, it was great seeing everybody again. Can you imagine how much fun we would have if some of the original attendees would drop back in again? (If any of you are reading this, that's a hint.... Geoffm32, Airgunwarrior.... ;))
That 1377 already has already been torn into, Tim. I cleaned up the trigger and made a list of parts that I'm planning on ordering soon. It's going to the top of the list, priority wise, in case I end up going back to Alaska again.
That's it for now. Looking forward to the next one.  ;D

Terry, I got a  Crosman .177 H9A series pumper pistol(13XX predecessor). I'm thinking remove the black paint and make it an all brass look.

Had a great time, guys. See you all next time. Food was great, thanks.

I want to thank Tim for the incredible deals He gave Me this weekend, I finally shot the M8 Mendozza Sunday and was blown away with the smoothness and ease of action. I also knocked the blade sight off the IZH-61 and put a Williams peep sight on and commenced my 10 meter off hand practice. ;D

Great, you can tell a Mendoza by the way the butt stock swoops down on the bottom. I like the twin triggers. Peep sight is a good addition.

Google Amazon Mendoza Golden Scorpion RM3000 air rifle. 900+ fps .22

I am happy today, I just finished my first complete teardown, debur , spring polishing and spring guide repair. The WF600 is now back together with the original action and shooting smoother and quieter than before. I put a polished penny on top of the spring for an added torque bearing, and used my new pipe clamp with a socket for the spring compressor. Happy Happy Happy. I think the 1000S is next.

I might be selling my Mod 95 .177 this month so I ran it across the chrony to see how it ran. Here are the numbers for the JSB 10.34g pellets
H=893.6 L=872.3 A=884.4 ES=21.26 SD=5.83 FPE=18.0
So I figure $100 without scope or $120 with TF 3-9x32 AO with weaver to dovetail mounts.
Just something to think about for the 16th.

I've got a TF M12. Nice gun. Doesn't have the dual trigger. Trigger isn't very good but ok. If you're interested: goole amazon Mendoza Golde Scorpion air rifle. RM3000. Nice gun, dual trigger, sling and sling mounts, .22 cal, 900fps+. Other day they had them for $119. I paid $245 for mine a year ago.

Mod 95 update "No Longer For Sale"
I took it out tonight for some open sights shooting and this happened.
I zeroed it at 28 yards in 6 shots using JSB 10.34g from my shooting table. [I had to move back from 25 because the sun was in my eyes]
(http://i1036.photobucket.com/albums/a446/Grimeszee/Air%20Guns/Target%20Matches/20160410_192543_zpselumzv0w.jpg) (http://s1036.photobucket.com/user/Grimeszee/media/Air%20Guns/Target%20Matches/20160410_192543_zpselumzv0w.jpg.html)
First 3 shots hit 1 right upper center and 2 right, then 2 clicks left and 3 in the middle circle
(http://i1036.photobucket.com/albums/a446/Grimeszee/Air%20Guns/Target%20Matches/20160410_192505_zpsqvc36ap8.jpg) (http://s1036.photobucket.com/user/Grimeszee/media/Air%20Guns/Target%20Matches/20160410_192505_zpsqvc36ap8.jpg.html)

Then I moved up to 20 yards and took a shoot standing off hand, it hit the center (I couldn't believe it)
I then said well lets move back to 28 yards and see what happens, it hit just above center.
(http://i1036.photobucket.com/albums/a446/Grimeszee/Air%20Guns/Target%20Matches/20160410_192516_zpsvn8qulax.jpg) (http://s1036.photobucket.com/user/Grimeszee/media/Air%20Guns/Target%20Matches/20160410_192516_zpsvn8qulax.jpg.html)
So I just found my go to open sight hunting or just shooting gun.

On a side note I had to remove the weaver rail on the Retay 100x and put some clear RTV sealant under it to try and find a way to stop it from vibrating loose after 20 shot or so, even after loctite was applied and cured it has never stayed put.

I may try to swing by for a few minutes on the way down just to say hello.

I have all the airguns repaired and a new hydro and fresh air in the tank and am ready to go.

Growing up in Charleston all the kids lived in Hunley Park (Navy housing) and the Air Force base went to high school with us. There was a Captain Allen lived next door to one of my girlfriends.

Thanks everyone, me and Jaybird had a blast, Kevin the BBQ was fantastic. The wind showed up and was aggravating to say the least moving the paper targets but, we had some others to keep us occupied, Kevin and Terry brought the resetable silhouette squirrel targets and had various spinner targets but I think everyone really enjoyed the aspirin/paintball/army man target that I made, I think at one time everyone was ether dusting,splattering or vaporizing something on that target, seems like every time someone would hit something it would just put a big grin on there face. Getting togeather with good freinds and meeting new ones and putting some lead down range how can you beat that.. ;D Good times, Good times....ok here are the pic's...

What a day to be had by all, Brenda and I had a blast (like the aspirin when hit  ;D) as usual. I would like to thank Jerry for bring the new Fun Factory we now know as Paintball, Aspirin, and Army men. I haven't heard Brenda giggle that much in a long time. I also want to give a big shout out to Big Al for completing the Gamo which I was able to nail a few Aspirins with it for accuracy testing. Brenda and I want to thank everyone for the comments on the BBQ and we are happy you enjoyed it. Next time the Aspirin and Army men get put out to 50 yards to make them a challenge for the PCP's  8) . Here are some Pictures I took at various times in the day. The one of Jaybird looks like he's wondering what happened to all the Aspirins me and Dad brought.  :D ;D ;D ;D

A very fine day indeed! Lots of good shots were made, and made even better with the added difficulty of the winds and high grass.  8)

My back thanks lil Jay for toting the compressor to and from the truck. I replaced the burst disk and it's all ready to start again.

Many thanks to Brenda and Kevin for the outstanding BBQ.

And again, thanks to Al for providing the place to get together.

So I had a chance to test the Gamo Varmint Hunter HP yesterday and with Crosman 7.9G pointed it is shooting 13.7 FPE with a SD of 11fps but with JSB 10.34g its 11.7 FPE and SD of 4. After another 100 pellets through it I mounted the TF 3-9x32 scope on it to tighten up the groups. I'm getting 1/2" ctc at 27 yard with either JSB or Crosman pointed, the H&N FTT 8.64G best was 1" with 11.7 and a SD of 11 FPS. So needless to say Big Al has done it again with his skills and remains the GAMO MASTER   8) . I gave it to my son Jacob to try and he almost crapped himself when he pulled the trigger even after warning him to very careful with it. This is the first Tuned Gun he has shot and wasn't ready for it.  :D ;D

I wanted to go to Ky. But I'm not sure I'll have the money. Last week I started back with the courier company I quit back in Dec. The trip to Santa Fe and some unexpected stuff came up. I'll have to play it by ear and decide at the last minute. Maybe but I doubt it.

A question, can you sale guns there without a table. Like a bullitin board "meet me at my car yada-yada to buy this or that". I don't mean I'd depend on that to pay for the trip. Just take the opportunity to thin the heard.

Offer him $50.00, if he takes it run like he77 because you just stole the gun, go as high as $100.00 if he won't budge but not any more, you will need a trigger, seal and spring to get it shooting really well...

It's just that the o-ring was not set right and eventually blew out. After that it was too deformed to seal correctly afterwards. Its all good, I am excited to take the challenge of the springer division. I added sling studs and a M16 sling tonight to increase my offhand stability. I'm at 2 mildots @10 yards instead of 5 mildots with the Talon.

Well it seems to have sealed itself overnight, I put 2800 psi in last night and it was still holding at lunch today. I will still bring the Diana 34 Justin case but it looks like the Talon will be making the trip. They are selling the .177 Diana 34 this time at AGD for $186 today.

It was inevitable.
I now won't be able to make it to the funshoot this month. I'm heading to Virginia on Monday for an indeterminate amount of time, before going to Alabama. The good of all this is I'm back to making money. The bad is missing out on the fun stuff.

Awesome, here is a picture of the RWS 93(Cometa 300) I picked up from another member in NC, I installed the Williams Peep sight and did a lube tune to smooth it out . Based on the serial number it was manufactured in 2003 in spain.

I thought people who drove them pumpkin trucks could afford to rent a van.

See yeah next time.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: HYspd on September 16, 2016, 02:59:25 AM
rent a van..umm yeah but not for a 900 mile round trip.....good news is it appears to be repairable to the point of being able to drive it again...possibly even to the same over all appearance......bad news is i won't know until late tomorrow (friday) morning HOW driveable it will be.....

driveablity damage is front support shoved back several inches, radiator and brake fluid reservoir....

DOT legality damage Bumper, drivers side head light, turnsignal and marker light....

cosmetic damage....Grill... which is also the turnsignal mount.....

So far We have all the broken bits off and have pulled the front support about 90% back into place.....had to do that much to get the radiator off the master cylinder......put in a new radiator, the fan shroud, got the hood shut and latch correctly and test started it.....

Tomorrow we will replace the brake fluid reservoir and test drive......if all goes well, we finish pulling the front support and get the driver's side head light back in it.....

Then it's find and mount another bumper and brackets so the bumper cover can go back on all of which holds up an under tray that mounts the power steering cooler......which leaves the grill and turn signal.....



Bah!.....I really wanted to do some shooting this weekend!

Hi all, Name here is David (another one, apparently). I am in Lugoff, I love to shoot, and am finally free to do a little traveling. I can't host many at one  time, and my place needs a little work, but I do have a good 50 yard range, and Lugoff is pretty centrally located for anyone in SC. I look forward to getting to know you guys!

Hi Guys,
Sorry I have been a little out of touch. Things kind of took a left turn around here and I haven't been at my computer much. I am looking forward to the shoot on the 22nd and getting to know some of you personally. As it stands right now, I will probably come down Friday and try to get a camp site at James Island. I have a friend who is a North Charleston police officer. Would it be OK to invite him out as well? I will be bringing my entire air arsenal, such as it is. I am still breaking in my Beeman, but it should be tolerable by then. I have to admit, it's not bad now. Truth is, I think it may be better than I am.

Well, my "arsenal" is rather modest.... 2 rifles and 2 pistols..... But if I know me, it's safe to say it's growing. I haven't heard anything about a show in Hickory, but I am not well connected in the hobby yet. I have had my Daisy for some time, as well as my P17, but I have been very busy, and not really able to engage in many social activities. I would love to know more about it. Hickory isn't much further from me than Charleston.....

Thanks for the heads up, Terry... I'll see what the budget looks like. I can't go to a show like that without buying, but it's fun to go a just socialize too. Looking at the flyer, it looks like a pretty cool event.

House is ok. Lots of limbs in the yard. Wife's daughter says power came on today. Her boy friend is clearing the yard with chain saws I had in garge. Wife is in Atlanta. She had a writing group up there this week anyway. I'm in N.C. See you all at the AG show or fun shoot

Glad everybody is ok.

My brother lives in Columbia, that's about an hour and a half from Summerville where the shoot is, correct? After decades out of air guns he's getting ready to get back in. Never even heard of PCP's before. I might clue him in to your shoots so he can take an educational trip your way if that's ok. Back in the 70's he made regular use of his Sheridan Blue Streak on wharf rats on the docks in Duluth, MN.

I live in Columbia, I am available to assist him with any airgun educational needs before a shoot. I will be attending the SC FT match the 22nd. I will be at the fun shoot there in Cross for the 12th of November.

Went to the AG show in N.C. Good stuff. Saw david from Charleston aka SCSHOOTER and his brother there.

Picked up my 56th from Rob Hawkins, Air Gun Tunes. Can't wait to get it to the range. All kinds of beautiful guns old and new. Saw a Sterling under lever with bolt action chamber. and a side lever repeater thumb hole from Argentina shoots round balls. If it had scope rail I would have bought it. Might still. Get a smith to poyt a weaver rail on it.

If you all coming tomorrow I'll see you there.

I am planning on coming down on Friday, and truck camping at Colleton SP, confirmed, for Friday and Saturday nights. I have just one problem...... I don't quite know exactly when and where to show up. I am looking forward to meeting you lot.

Thanks Kevin and Al. I have the coordinates locked and loaded. I didn't realize  the shoot was in Cross. I could have gotten a a campsite at Santee SP. Well, there is always next time. Colleton isn't that far away. Actually it works out pretty well, since I will be visiting friends in Charleston as well

Really looking forward to next event, and if all goes as planned...showing up with the John Moses Browning of Airguns.

John M. Browning's philosophy was..."if something can go wrong, it probably will, so,  build the gun strong enough, and then double it".

Exactly what I feel American Air Arms has done with the Slayer and their other line of Airguns.

Looking very, very forward to joining my Traveling Partner Tim and the rest of my great friends soon.

Respectfully,

Al.

Thanks Tim, I am planning on bringing at least one friend, if he can get off. He is a N.Charleston police officer and a retired Navy marksman. I am gifting him a Beeman P17, and he will be using one of my rifles. Also my lady friend is trying to talk me in to bringing her. She is 65 and has never fired a gun, but she is now eager to learn.

The whole clan is coming with me Sat. I need to know if anyone is going to need air, so I can decide if the compressor is coming along and if Big Al needs to bring the generator. It'll be a tight fit in her car is the reason I'm bringing this up.
In other news, I just updated the firmware on the X-Sight and now have two new reticles that I have been on them to produce. One looks like a BDC reticle and the other is a Mil-Dot. Either will hopefully give me longer range consistency.  ;D
On the down side, I can't watch it through my tablet anymore. For that matter, my tab won't let me on this forum anymore.  >:( Don't know what changed, but I accidentally ended up deleting a lot of things that shouldn't have been and really needed. I thought it was because of the 2-3 new spybots that were added here (Baidu, Alexa, Yahoo), but it won't let me access other forums, either.  :'(
Rob3dr (from the airgun show) might try to come down this weekend, but I'm not for sure. I need to send him an email and find out. He did sound interested, but we'll see how his schedule is.
I can't wait 'til Sat, trying to decide which guns to bring now.  ;D

p.s. With the kid coming, I might need to borrow some pellets.... the order won't be here in time to come along.  :-[  Heading to the store now....

Nah, not you, Me....the rear deck hanger broke yeas ago and the little 3/16" metal rod.i bent up to hold things together wasn't up to years of use.....should have used 5/16" threaded and 1/8"x1 arms for a stronger fix....

After i calmed.down I figured since the belt belt popped off several times, it took out the drive belt and i was too focused on the deck to notice....but boy did I hit the roof when it wouldn't self move....

Well another fun shoot has come and gone. I want to welcome the new shooters Ken, and Dave to the monthly event. Thanks again Al for hosting and a big thank you to my wife Brenda for making the sandwiches. The wind was a bit brisk early on and blew Terry's awning away 😂but he got it anchored down and kept shooting. Ken was introduced to the world of airgun extremists and loved it. Here are some pics I took.

The tune kit for the FWB124 came in last Thursday but I didn't have time to get it installed until yesterday, when I pulled it apart the seal was not that bad pulled it cleaned up the barrel and compression tube lubed generously with Krytox, reassembled gave it a few shot then set it down to let the LocTite do it's job....

Shot cycle is quick and quiet just like it should be....

I haven't found that guy's business card, yet, but I did find out some other information. Daisy will still be in business even though gamo bought them out. I got the LW barrel for an 853 for $65. That and a couple of other pre-gamo parts should be here by the end of the week. Hopefully, my PA order will be here at the same time.

Thanks for the heads up on the coyotes, Terry. We have 4 packs running around here within about a 2 mile radius, and often hear solitaries. Looks like I need to break out the 12Ga and do a little swamp stomping.
Sorry you won't be at the shoot. Looks like I may be bringing my brother with me this month.

If you go, I wish you the best of luck. If you manage to get a tagged one, that's a heck of a score. I wouldn't know what to do with one or who to sell the hide to. Would like to try the .45 on one, though.

Missed you guys that couldn't make it Saturday. My twin, Don, came down with me. I don't think I have seen him have more fun in years! We all had a blast. I don't think I could keep him away next month if I tried. I finally got the trigger adjusted on my Ram XT. It's still a little heavy, but it is nice and crisp, and a real pleasure to shoot. I guess I am a happy camper now. I picked up my Hatsan Striker Vortex in .25. I'm good till spring, but then I'll be looking to get a Crosman 1322 or 2240. I just may break down and buy it from the Custom Shop, rather than modding it myself. Cheers guys. I'll look to see you the 12th

I finally broke down and purchased a true German FT gun last night. I bought a Walther LGU in .177 from AGD and applied the Sb10off code for a total cost of $386. So I will be selling my XS46U .177 full tuned when I get back from Vacation.  $250 with the 4-1644 Nikko Stirling Nighteater scope or $175 for the gun only.

Post by: TheRRDon on November 24, 2016, 04:50:38 AM
Hi Folks,

I am Dave's twin.  I have to say I haven't had more fun than the fun shoot in a long time. (but , then I don't have much fun at all..).

I have been a "powder burner" since my Boy Scout and JROTC days. I hadn't thought much about Air guns and, to be honest, my reason for deciding to  go down to AL's was to please Dave.  I knew I wouldn't have a bad time, but I really didn't expect to have a good time. I didn't want to be there gunless, so I bought (one of) Grimeszee's B4-1 Side Cock from that Dave recommended.  We shot it here a several times, and I found I liked it.  I really like the B4-1.  I believe it has been expertly tuned and Grimeszee worked very hard on the stock.  The natural color of the wood shows through,  the satin smooth finish almost glows and it shoots a nice group.  Dave and I really had a good time shooting in our back yard.  David and I had some of the first "quality time" we have had in a while, and I was *really* starting to enjoy Air gunning.

By the time we got to Cross, I was ready to buy a 2nd gun.  I was looking for a little more power and LeftEyeShot hooked me up with a really good deal on a Hatsan 125 Vortex.  He told me up front that there might be some issues with it and he had not gone over it, but it shot.  Even as I got it, it shot pretty well; fairly consistent speed of about 670fps.  The trigger, well the Quattro trigger worked. I have since done some work on it and I am quite happy with it.  I may post on my experiences with it later.

I had read about PCPs and after I saw and shot OleTomCat's BT65, I knew I wanted one. So when when we got back home I started scouring the web for PCP rifles.  The first thing I noticed is they are not very inexpensive (understatement, that is).  I also wanted a multi-shot capability.  The least expensive multi-shot PCP I could find was the Benjamin Marauder, uncomfortably over $400.

I began a quest to capture the multi-shot experience with HPA. so I started looking for multi-shot CO2s that I could convert. There are actually quite a few guns that might serve for a project like this.  I was making good progress.  Finding guns, finding paint ball tanks, finding CO2 adapters, but as you may know, a project like this starts to come in on the heavy side of $300.  I kept looking for ways to bring the cost down.  I was about to decide I would have to settle for a Maximus or a Disco, single shot only...

Then i came across a YouTube video for the CR-600 (the C stands for CO2) available in the UK,  From the price in pounds, I knew that if I could find it here it should be reasonably priced.  I hit the forums looking for info, where I came across MRODAir.  I had read some good things about Mike's products, mostly the really high end stuff.  I don't know if I will ever be able to spring $1500 for a Heubin, but what a sweet gun.  I found the CR600 branded as the Plinkster, and it is indeed reasonably priced at an "introductory price" of $150.  I had marked this down for further research.

I saw that Mike had listed several PCPs as New Adds to his line.  I saw the Varmint, which is Mike's branding for the SPA PW900. It had everything I was looking for.  From viewing the pics I would place it some where in the range of the Disco, but with multi-shot.  It looked a lot like the Plinkster ( I later found out that it is a Plinkster with a few mods for PCP), but I figured it must be at least 2-3 times the price. then I found the price page and  that was when I had my "Eureka Moment." The gun carries the introductory price of $200!!! I went absolutely MANIC.  Almost before I knew it,  I had ordered 1 along with 2 extra mags,  and a CP1-M Co2 pistol which shares the breech and magazine with the Plinster/Varmint, and 2 MORE mags.  The CP1-M seems to be the same gun as the AirForceOne Trophy CO2 and it's the perfect complement to the Varmint and was priced at only $100. Oh yeah, the 3K# hand pump so I can charge the thing; I bought that too.

With any luck, I will get these in time to go over them with a fine tooth comb and have done my best effort to tune in time for the December fun shoot.  I will do a photo shoot of the un-boxing, tear-down, any tweaks I make, and the re-assembly and probably write a full review to post in the proper place here on GTA.

I am already thinking about a large caliber PCP, and there's the regulator for the Varmint.....

So OleTomCat, LeftEyeShot, the upshot of all this is that you have created a monster!.  I am lucky that I have such an understanding wife AND practically a prescription from  my Dr. to find a hobby to relieve some of my stress and interact with other people.  I am not it trouble yet, but I am very close.....

Still, there's the regulator... and maybe a bigger air reservoir.....

Ole Tomcat was one of my first enablers and I have promised myself that next spring I am going to take an extended weekend drive down there to meet in person some of the crazies from South Carolina. I know that the South Jersey crew is also a great bunch of shooting buddies and awesome enablers as well. Enjoy your new passion and feel free to blame your brother any time you need a scapegoat I know that's what I do. Be well and have a Happy and safe Thanksgiving to all you SC crazies ;D ;D ;D

I TOLD you my  brother had the fever! He gave a great story about his new guns.... but WAIT, there's more! He couldn't bear to have all the fun by himself,  so he called me up to show off the specs on his new purchases. When I agreed they looked pretty sweet, he said "Merry Christmas! I ordered a second one... for you!" I fell in love with Al's 2240, and had already gone to the CustomShop and speced one out to my liking. The price tag was near $150. I had a target date sometime in April to order it. When I saw the CP-1M, I watched a few of  YouTube  reviews (of which there are many) on it and decided that for $99, I could be quite happy with it. Moreover, I had $99 burning a hole in  my pocket, so I had him add one to his order for me. For the time being, we'll share the pump. I'll get one in the Spring. So, my friends, when you see us on the 10th, you will find the two of us loaded for bear.... well, bunnies and garden bandits, anyway  ;)

Roger on the new goodies. According to the videos I have seen, when you find the right pellet, they are dead accurate, too. I am almost almost afraid for Don to meet you; it could be hazardous to his health. He fired Al's BT65, and had to have a PCP. I wonder what will happen when he fires your Texan.....

I'll give a hint. I did not open one, but I took lots of pictures of the other.

Sounds like it's going to be a big day! Lots of new guns to shoot. Darn shame we have to wait 2 more weeks. Don plans to clean and adjust his Varmint before then, but I won't be home till Wednesday, or maybe even Thursday, and I have plans for Friday, so I'll be shooting mine right out of the box. I may wait till I get there to unbox it. It should be a good opportunity to make some comparisons. I FINALLY got my trigger adjusted on my Ram XT.... It's not great trigger, but it's acceptable, and still breaking in a bit. So, you'll have a better idea how it feels. I have heard reasonable comparisons of my rifle to a Hatsan 125. Having fired both, I think I concur

I really appreciate the offer.

I looked at some names on the internet.  Looks like the closest to me is a Dive Shop on Alpine Rd. in Columbia. But, I don't anything about them or any other sources in the Midlands.

Even though I SCUBA dived, I always rented the tank.  And I know to be commercially transportable, the hydro-test must be current.  This is a 2004 tank. It's in good condition, I'm not worried about it. But, I don't know if anyone will fill it without a current hydro.

I am open to any information, suggestions, or recommendations in this area.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: grimeszee on November 28, 2016, 10:14:35 PM
The dive shop on Alpine only fills to 3000 psi for $8. Terry's offer can't be beat, and the only other place is a paintball shop in Cayce and they will fill to 4500 for $5 but it must have a current Hydro test.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: dv8eod on November 28, 2016, 10:19:37 PM
The place on alpine will fill it but only to about 3k. Doesn't do any good if your gun takes a 3k fill, it'll only do it once at that level. Another dive shop on st. andrews gave me the run around. Columbia fire and safety, on meeting street i think, can do the hydro and visual for about $15 if I remember. There is another fire safety place that I used to get mine filled at there in Elgin. They charged $10 even but still not a full fill. They did it fast and didn't top off once the tank was cooled down.

If your tank is carbon fiber, it has a 15 year life cycle. If it's a 2004, there should be about 3 years left on it. Call the local fire safety place and have it looked at. Then you can bring it by and I can put a full fill on it.

Hey Terry,  Thanks for the info and the offer.  The tank should be here this week which is good, because I am on Staycation.  I will get it over to Meeting St and come find you.

If you go to Elgin (even once) for a fill, you can't be too far away.  Dave and I have a 100yd shooting lane in our backyard.  You and Kevin are welcome to come over most any weekend.

Hey Tyler... Don't let that stop you. I'll be bringing 3 or 4 guns, my brother will probably have his 3; I am sure if you come on down you won't have a problem finding something to to shoot. There is an outside chance I won't be there, but my guns will, and you will be more than welcome to shoot them.  :) Hope I make it, but if I don't, enjoy my guns!
BTW, Some photos can be found a page or two back from the October shoot.....

I was going to bring 6 guns but now I've widdled it down to 12. You can shoot any of them, Tyler.

Hey, guys that Argentine Mahely R-01 springer .22 round ball 10 shot repeater I bought at the Hickory show quit shooting. It was simple as heck to tear down. Simple trigger and sear, simple trigger adjustment. It was gunked up worse than a chinese B3 with packing grease. Only one end of the spring was ground and bent flush. Gona' take some pic before I put it back together. Maybe do a thread on it in the Vintage or Spainish gate. Has a leather seal but bigger than the chinese seals. Looks like it will take a Mendoza spring and poly seal. Anybody got a 25-26mm seal that uses a screw to attach. It has different threads than the chinese piston seal screws. Mahely spring guide fits into the Mendoza spring but tight. The metal spreader goes into the center of the mendoza seal will have to have the hole drilled out a little for the Maheley screw to fit or one the same size. Might light lube and slap it back together with what parts I got and bring it this weekend and tear it down again later when I get some new stuff for it.

Later Y'all, THE GOOD LOOKING ONE!

Don't have any plans. I'm surprised I lived this long.

I was thinking, and that's always hazardous. Maybe we should come up with a small fee everyone kicks in at the shoots to pay someone with a tractor to mow the range when it needs it. With Al's permission of course.

Everyone please bring their calendars so we can make a schedule for next year and have it ready by the January event.....

Don't have any plans. I'm surprised I lived this long.

I was thinking, and that's always hazardous. Maybe we should come up with a small fee everyone kicks in at the shoots to pay someone with a tractor to mow the range when it needs it. With Al's permission of course.

Or we could have Grumpy, aka the Chuckster, bring one of his flame throwers.

+1 Chuck's flamethrowers need a workout.  ;D
Of course someone with a mower could work, too   ::) ;)

When I get my trailer cleaned off,(need to take the pool to the recycle station) I could bring my rider mower. I need help getting it unloaded after I get the permit to recycle.

It is to much for a rider unless you have a big zero turn o ref Dixie Chopper.....

What time do you usually begin the shoot? Bringing a buddy and he has to be back here by 4, so we probably have to leave by 2. Hope the rain has cleared out by then.

I usually get there around 8:30, we usually pack up about 30 minutes before dark..

Sorry to say I cannot make it this month. My wife's friend is having a birthday party that I have been *told* I have to attend.

She was so good about letting me get the guns, i don't want to upset her over them.

BTW.  Both SCBA tanks came in.  Camden Fire Extinguisher is hydro-testing them and can fill to 3800psi.

Glad they were able to help you out.  I've had good dealings with them.  You'll be good to go when you get them back. 
I take it you got your fittings, also?   ;)

The Fittings are "in the Mail" along with my Lane regulator.   Been a week on the fittings and 2 on the regulator.  I guess the reg is coming by steamer.

My answer to the TX200 is this Walther LGU .177 it is ridiculously accurate and I believe has the best ambidextrous stock to be had.
 I give you the Walther LGU for your viewing pleasure.

My buddy and I should be there about 9. We'll have a couple PCP one Beni GasRam, some CO2, a springer and a P17 pistol. It may be a little cool for CO2, but it'll still work. I hope there is a good turn out.

The trigger is better on the TX but the LGU is still very nice at 1.5lbs measured. JerryC has a TX here but it is a right hand stock and I'm a Lefty wich adds $150 to the TX cost.

Looks like I'll Be Greyhounding back next Wednesday.... Three weeks in NY, unable to pull a trigger, not my ideal vacation :(  I WILL see you guys in January. Whatever day you choose for the shoots will be fine with me. One of the perks of being retired; nothing much to do, and not much money to do it with  LOL. Have a great time!

Thanks for the pics, Hfenn! Sorry I missed the shoot. Unless I miss my guess, it was pretty breezy (again), and maybe a little chilly. Glad you enjoyed the shoot, and sure am sorry I missed the gumbo! We got more snow here in Syracuse today. Not more than about an inch, but it flurried all day. Can't wait to get back to the sunny south.

I may give that some thought myself..... use a paintball butt bracket to mount the cylinder. I am afraid, though, that it would unfavorably alter the balance of the pistol. But hey, we usually have 10 months of good CO2 shooting weather.... Are you going to try to make it to the shoot on the 31st, Tyler?

I have the orders to roll the Crew North to Ohio in the morning.
It's the nature of my job to roll when told.
This comes as a complete surprise to all of us here on this job and ruined many plans.

I hate to say it, but I won't be able to make it either....  :'(  The wife has me on a short leash. She's got us planned to go to all her friends'  houses for some reason. Personally, I think she's just trying to get out of cooking. Either that or it's payback for not getting her a shirt when I got the others.  :-\  If this last job offer comes through, my shooting season may be over for a little while.
On the brighter side, my new friend with the CNC plasma cutter is willing to make us some targets. I'm in the process of trying to help by creating an initial pattern off of the FT squirrel to see how it's going to work out. Luckily, he knows what he is doing so he can cover my mistakes. Who knows, I may even learn something. I'm going to try and come up with some other durable targets, also. Been looking at what I've got laying around.

Thanks for the invite, I'm all packed up and ready to leave bright and early.
See you there/then.

dv8eod, if you need any help just let me know, I do CAD/Engineering for a living and am quite familiar with the steels you'd want to use for this kind of application too.

Next time I'm pretty sure I'll be regulated, so between now and then I have to decide just what I need to do to the gun or send it to someone like motorhead (clear across country.)  I'm leaning towards the 'sending it' option.

I want to be able to dial it next time.  Last time was just learning what dialing it would look like.  I learned a lot!

So IF I can get the gun work done I'll be there...w/ my mower in tow. :)

Robin, even if you can't get your gun work done, come anyway. I am sure you'll shoot every bit as much as you want to. Heck, you might even fall in love with another gun. You'll at least get an idea of what to look at for your in next one. I know I'll have 3 or 4 rifles, plus my pistols, Don will have about the same, and we are "junior partners".  No one can shoot more than one at a time. You will be more than welcome with, or without a gun  :)

This is very True, the first time Jay showed up he didn't have a gun either and shot just as much as anyone else.....

Lots of guns and if Terry and David King show up you will have lots of big bore fun....

If I'm not shooting there, I'll be shooting here. Personally, if anyone else is up to it, I would just as soon shoot with friends. It's summer in SC, what can you say. I've been doing it for the better part of the last 50 years. I see no need to change now.

I think we should shoot in July and August. For no other reason than to make sure we keep this thing going. Be there every month if a new comer wants to shoot, "join", learn the secret handshake. Not to be presumptuous, it's Al's land, maybe we'll be hosting a shoot and gun show one day. We already have the T-shirts. Maybe make a short day of it. 9am-1pm or till you've enjoyed all you can stand.

Both guns make nice little dime sized groups with CPHP's. I wrote a scathing review on them and reported to Amazon it must be a mismark.

If anyone driving from or through Asheville would be willing to do a ride-share to one of these events, please let me know.  I don't drive due to service connected disabilities (Viet Nam) and the meds that make me periodically dizzy (want to keep be responsible by not driving).  I certainly would pay gas both ways and make it more economically feasible for someone else to do the driving.  It would be nice to see others, and might even join in with one or more of my own air guns, as they put their skills to the test.  Send me a PM if it is a consideration.

I've got the reg installed in the S510 and have it working pretty well.  Still have some tuning to do, but I'm on the track now.  I was way off track yesterday, but perseverance paid off.

Broke down and ordered a Streamline .25 as well.  It'll be here Monday, that ought to be fun too.

Lawnmower will make the trip as well, knock those 4' weeds down to size.

OP if you can get to Greenville you are welcome to ride with me the rest of the way.  Though I burn diesel.

Tony you're over by Athens. I'm in Savannah. It's about 140 miles from here to Cross, S.S. Takes me about 3 hours. Google says you're about 225 miles from Cross. Sometimes I go up Saturday night and get a room.

"IF" you live long enough to be as old as me. (It'll be like 'Blade Runner' world then.) I'll be long gone and want care what my wife sales my guns for.

You'll remember what you said today and be ashamed!

Just kidding.

The good thing is, all the problems you have now, I don't remember.

"Do robots sleep the electric sleep?"     NNOO, they're just OFF, you boob.

If robots shot air guns they'd shoot pcp, BECAUSE ANYBODY CAN SHOOT PCP.

IT BEES WHAT IT BEES WHAT IT BEES AND IT AIN'T GONNA' BEES NOTIN' ELSE. But that's you young fellas' problem, not mine. I don't care any more

And I ain't gonna tales you again!

Youth is wasted on the young.

Don't forget the 100 yard targets, Al. You're not that old.

And Chuck, if you shoot everything I bring twice that'll take all day. If you can cock springers that many times.

On the Yellow forum check out the Gamo new 10 shot break barrel repeater. There's a Hard Air magazine article and a Rick Eusler Youtube vid. .177 or .22, rotary mag, gas ram, composite stock, sound suppression.

I know it's all in how your company sees it, but airguns aren't considered weapons in the US. Having driven a truck for a number of years, though, I know what a stick in the mud DOT Cops can be, too (don't mention Connecticut to me)

Some states like NJ consider them as firearms, but not many.  The problem isn't with the DoT it's with his company it's their rules that matter, Chuck I have plenty of guns and pellets and air you don't have to worry.  If you need a ride let me know.

Connecticut's not so bad. I pulled an 85000 lbs load of hardwood from New Hampshire to Marion, N.C. Dodged all them scales. It was Friday night, no going' back and havin' them pull a bundle off.

Unloaded in Denver once and all they had was a load going to California. "Nope, I'll spend the night on my dime. Find something going to Texas and I can find some lumber in Tejas going back our side."

California DOT cops ain't right.

I got a Daisy 747 for $150 retail yesterday......and as this gun is very quiet, I did a bit of shooting with it in the motel room I got for my day off....managed to get an 8 yard corner to corner spread and starting breaking in this pistol with some HnN spitzen klugel pellets that Terry gave me.....was using my cloth covered 5 gallon bucket of rubber mulch and the first thing I notice was that I didn't need a pellet trap any where near that big, this pistol is very accurate.....only took 15 shots and the shooting experience was already begining to click.....the last 5 shots you could cover with a dime and 3 were touching....after that it was point and shoot....And I got the feeling that it didn't really like the pointed pellets.....wow me like, I was just hoping for minute of spoon at 10 yards, that should not be a problem.....

Tried the RWS Hypermax pellets in the QB89 today and was quite surprised with the results. They shot 662 fps average and 665 high with 657 low for 5.1 fpe. They group at just about 1" at 20 yards. I was able to knock down the 1.5" kill zone target offhand at 23 yards multiple times. You can see the target in the background of the second picture.

Bring it Sat. and I'll bring mine. I've added a couple of 45 degree one rail 3 slot adpater and a set of M16A3 type sights.

Put long eye relief scout scopes on my Peak B3-1 AK with a barrel mount and  45 degree red dot sight and a new AK sling.

Ak sling and scout scope on my Pleasure NK-1 (B2, little better made like the receiver end cap is metal and screw on) with a barrel mount.

Same stuff on my TS45's

The AK B2 and TS45 have no scope rails

Put a scout scope on each of the barrels of my Beeman RS2 to see if I stay zeroed whem I change barrels. I had to cut about 3" off the front of the stock to make it work. I stripped the stock and painted it black. Sling mount on the side of the stock like a B3 and got a sling mount coming to attach to the picatinny barrel mount.

Fun stuff. Later , TIM

Last night I successfully rebuilt the Hatsan striker Vortec .22. I was surprised how easy the hole trigger assembly came out after removing the rear stock lug. I found that the piston had been scraping the upper tube under the dovetail. I smoothed out the tube as much as possible but it should be replaced, Then I replaced the seal only to find it was way too tight. Broke it back down and put the original seal which was still in perfect shape. I smoothed all the rough spots on the piston and deburred the cocking slot then lubed with Moly. Now it cocks super smooth and shoots at full power like before. Very happy with the results thus far.

Post by: lefteyeshot on February 06, 2017, 01:07:59 PM
Al, I'm good with the dates.

Kevin, On the QB89 I took the carring handle completely of. My rail is also 12 inches. Drilled out the hole on the end for the rear carrying handle hole, drilled a new hole for the front screw hole. With a washer as wide as the rail under the rail and a half inch bolt (?) and lock waher on top of the rail for both holes. The two washers provide the flat surface you need and keeps the rail level. Two, one inch tall see thru picatinny mounts and I can see thru the scope.
Title: Re: ALS' LOW COUNTRY FUN-SHOOT EVENT!
Post by: grimeszee on February 06, 2017, 02:05:40 PM
I was thinking more along the lines of the one that was in the picture that was in the QB89 documents. I really don't need the handle and they already have the flat surface needed to mount the rail on without any other hardware.

Doesn't look like I will make it, either. Don's wife is still ill, and I was just getting ready to load my truck when it hit me.... I forgot to make arrangements for my dog. He is a little guy and not an outside dog. He would probably be OK in the house by himself, but before I got him, his original owners had abandoned him in a house by himself for two months. I'll have a little more foresight next month. I have a couple of friends who would gladly do it, but I don't want to spring it on them at the last moment. Have a good time tomorrow!

WOW! Sorry I missed it. Looks like a perfect day. I Do have friends who can watch Murphy, but I didn't think about it till to late. Don's wife, Liz, is out of the hospital. She came home today and is home, resting comfortably, and recovering. I think we will both see y'all the 25th.

Have some questions since me and another person are thinking about attending for the first time in March.  One, do you have a street address or better yet GPS coordinates where the get together actually takes place?  Of  the motels you list someplace, which has the best price or would any of them provide a convention type discount?  I imagine you get quite a few PM, so is there another way to reach you with questions?  After 5 hours in a car to get there, not being prepared is not a good idea.  Thanks much!

The motels in Moncks Corner are further than the ones in Santee, I personally haven't stayed at any of them, I also haven't setup any event rates since we sorta just do this among friends, most people drive in the same day.  You guys are coming from quite a distance so I would say look at the ones in Santee first right on I-95 at Hwy 6, that puts you about 19 miles from where we shoot and on the home side  if you stay overnight.  Another option is camping if you are up to it, let me know in advance and I will make sure that the people that I have watching the property know and you can pitch a tent on sight, wouldn't be the first one to do that...

Send me a message and I will send you my Cell number, it is on me all the time so you can can always get in touch with me.

Hope that helps..

I took some lumber i had laying around and made a sawhorse type shooting gallery. It has holes drilled on the top for tees and paintballs or whatever will fit in the holes, and i am looking for other stuff to hang off the bottom. Right now i just have my little spinner hanging.
I'll bring the drill with me next month if anyone has something to mount to it. It's roughly 8' long so there should be no problems. I figure put it in the middle of the field and have at it.
Al, the new tanks are good to go.

I use beer ping pong balls on skewers stuck in the ground for cheap entertainment.  The ping pong balls can be ordered in quantities in 1" and .5" (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LI5SDPK/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LI5SDPK/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1)).  If I just use the ping pong balls, it is even more of a challange, because I have to shoot at the ball wherever it bounces from the previous hit.

What we need is a dueling tree for offhand games, or one of the flip and reset targets each and whoever flips and resets first moves on.  ;)
On another note, I installed some wood grips I purchased at Alliance Hobby on the 1377. It feels and looks much better now.

Nice, is that a trigger up-grade or a trigger shoe?

It is the factory trigger for that model year.

Yep, asked him to join us.

I would appreciate it if you could order the GRT trigger that will fit My Gamo Swarm repeater if you can and install it for me on the 25th. Of course I'd reimburse you and pay you for the the install. If you can. Later.

Well guys, looks like Don and I will have to miss this month too. We have a nephew who will be visiting. The last time either of us saw him he was a Cub Scout; now he is a minister. Needless to say we have a lot of catching up to do.

Picked up this Benjamin Steel NP2 .22 with the CBR trigger, and new seals from a member for $125. It shoots 21.6 fpe with most all pellets I shot through it.

This weather is killing me....  >:(
Was supposed to be at a job last week but dropped on account of bad weather.
They planned for this week, but again, bad weather.
Either one of those two weeks would have worked great for me timewise to make the shoot on the 25th and to get ready for a follow on that's coming up in April. Now, it's a coin toss as to what's going to happen.
If it comes down to me missing it, I'm planning on coming down one day ahead of time to drop off the target board and Al's tanks.
See ya'll then..... maybe....

Wasn't planning on it. I was hoping to be working. Given the way the weather is going, I probably still won't. Mark said if he cancelled, he wouldn't notify until late morning. By that time, I would have already been there for a couple of hours. Not much fun sitting in the truck in the rain.

As I mentioned, Don and I missed Saturday's shoot because our nephew came to visit. We had not seen him in almost 15 years. We got to talking and I found out that at 22, he had never fired a gun. When I asked if he would like to shoot, he jumped at the opportunity. I started him with my Beeman Ram XT. After just 3 shots to get used to the rifle, he ate the middle out of the target. From there we went to a centerfire  pistol. He was a natural. He then shot my Beeman P17, and proceeded to stack 3 pellets right on the "X", right off the bat. I had to make sure he did not lose interest in shooting sports! That is why I was so happy to find this great little target kit from Airgun Depot!. He is on his way home after a business trip. When he gets there, The P17 Target Shooters Kit will be waiting on him!
