Hello fellow air rifle addicts ;-)

A brief(?) intro...

I bagged many rabbits and squirrels about 40 years ago with a Crosman 760 and 766. Pulled those rilfes from storage last year and repaired them. While "hunting" for repair parts, I stumbled into that DEEP rabbit hole of modern air rifles. Started with break-barrel springers which are still my favorite (Hatsan, Umarex, Crosman, etc.). Then side-tracked into the CO2 world with a couple of the Beemans (QB78 and QB79). Those are fun to shoot. Had to visit the "darkside" with a couple PCPs. Circled back to springers again, but the underlever kind. I like to get factory refurbs for cheap and spend time getting them to work like new (or better). Have repaired (bad seals) and tuned most of my break-barrel springers. Some of the posts on this site have helped me. I hope I can gain enough experience to help others the same way.
