Word is spreading at work that I am into airguns...
Yesterday, out of the blue, a co-worker asked if I ever had heard of "Air Force".
At first I said, "Yeah, I was in it for 6 years"... then he said No, he saw on youtube an airgun that shot .30, .357, and even .45 pellets at 1000 fps..

"OH! that "Air Force", That would be the Texan!" says I...
Next thing you know it's a half hour later and he has more questions now than before!  8)

I have some on those in .22.  They were given to me along with 3 airguns.... which I eventually sold like a dummy (the airguns that is).  I still have those pellets.

Boy to I remember SuperPells! I grew up in a sporting goods store in the Kansas City area. Those tins couldn't be opened without using a pair of pliers. Unless of course, you wanted to bloody yourself!

So this guy came to the house last week with a ruger black hawk elite and said he couldn't hit a barn and I asked him what he was shooting and he had 4 tubes of those, they would fall through the barrel he thought all pellets wee created equal lol so after a quick learning lesson of showing him about 20 kinds of pellets he has a new outlook on bb guns especially when I showed him a bunch of pcps, Said he had no idea there were such airguns like these. Spread the word guys lots of people out there have no idea what is available and yeah I gave him a pyramid catalog  hahahh.  David
I had almost the same thing happen to me last week had a guy drive 3hrs to show my a benjamin np that was shooting all over the place and he thought the ram must be bad
turned out he was only trying alloy pellets since it was rated for 1300fps with them, turns out it was shooting really nice as soon we tried some lead pellets.
Gun was fine with about a 15fps ES shooting right at 930fps with 7.9gr pellets he had now idea that the loud crack
he mentioned hearing was the sound barrier and the cause of the inaccuracy.

Joe,

Folks are believing all the crud hype about velocity and have no idea what an airgun is all about. When you tell them the pellets you buy at Wally World, box stores and such are designed with built in drag for stabilization and that in general over 950fps is a no no they don't understand. All they know about is speed. When you tell them the crack they hear is not the explosion of the pellet going out the barrel but the pellet breaking the sound barrier causing instability they don't get it.

Most folks relate airguns to powder burners and they are not, if you want more power than the 925-950 fps second will give you .. use a heavier pellet.

I often get very frustrated.

So much for my ranting;-  )

And yes, I remember Super Pells very, very well. Used to shoot them way back in the day ;-  )  I think I still have a half empty can lying around somewhere;-  )

  When I was a kid, my brother got a used Crosman 140 from somebody.  I ended up shooting it more than he did.  I considered it quite the fearsome weapon, after shooting my old v350 for so long.  The "spice tin" Crosman pellets were all that were available in our town.  I have often wondered if anyone knew back then, just how accurate some of the old guns could be, with better ammo.

"metal 'pepper' cans."

  Just last week a friend brought me a can of them-
"Super Pells"
I saw the Fairport address and knew they had to older than about 1953
I was thinking they looked a bit like the Sheridan pellets of that time frame
Anyway can is about full, so I'll shoot a few next summer
Also he gave me a red plastic can of "CopperHead" Domed pellets
about half full
they look like they will be good ones

Yes we have very nice ammo now.

Remember them?? I have a couple thousand of them........in both calibers. I've sold off 90% of my guns but still have all my vintage ammo that I acquired as throw-ins, over the years.
Anybody want some?  :-\

What would be cool is to arrange the packaging in a creative way and take a picture of it and then make some prints to sell or give away.  Vintage airgun ammo prints would be a neat thing to have in a man cave or as part of a prize package or even a gift to an air gunner.

Some of those would be priceless to a vintage air gun collector. It adds something to displaying a gun with the ammo from the same era.

Leonard you just reminded me. I have a few of them belt clip containers as well. Even Daisy got on the band wagon.
I'm going to put them up for sale. I really don't appreciate them as much as a collector would. I simply acquired them all without trying. I don't remember where or how. No idea what they are all worth so I probably will put them on Ebag and let the market decide.
Not sure my photography skills are up to setting up and taking a creative pic of them.  :-\

I did some testing with the SuperPells in my R9.  Good enough for rolling cans out to 25yards so thatís exactly what I did!
