With the seemingly endless days of 36 deg rain, Iíve been shooting my Walther LGV in the garage. Itís a pellet stacker as long as I do my part and a very soft shooter as well. One of my most favorite air rifles next to my Diana 75.

1.3lb lead slug in the LGV forend!

More practice with my ďnewĒ Crosman 1400.  It is plenty accurate shooting 14.6gr H&N FTTs at thirty yards but it is clear that I will have to rebuild the valve. Sometimes I can hear the valve leaking as I pump.  Other shots are near perfect.  Feels like the quad ring is going.

Crosman 700. A quirky airgun. Slab-sided, tap loader, radiator clamps on the in-line tube and loud. But can be a tack driver and much fun.

Snow cleared here in SA and was nice out. Took my Williams target open sight off my 2300 and put it on my Supersport. Worked better then the stock open sights but could be further forward. Anyone know if Williams sells the peep sight alone?

Both shot well but the HW55 had the edge at 20m.

Found a little PowerMaster 66 hanging on the wall that I picked up at a pawnshop a few years back. It's not pumping up so I'll get it fixed up and will be shooting it soon.

Wayne, very nice shooting. I just received and installed the new poppet in my 78G so now I'm checking to see if is holding CO2.

Those are both very cool rifles. 

Gotta love a German 10m match rifle.

I ran a few pellets thru a pair of early Daisy 922's I am working on.
One was definitely off.......new seal upgrade kit helped....

The photo was one from the seller, I bought it awhile back and it had a couple small issues.... wasnít dumping all the air, even with as few as 3 pumps.
 I tore apart and buffed the plunger with 0000 steel wool, cleaned everything and replaced the hammer spring.... great shooter now and dumps completely up to 9 pumps

I made up a new target this morning I'll brand the "Lucky 13 Shot" and I used my Smith & Wesson 78G for shooting.

Wayne, very nice. Your wadcutters punch a nice clean hole. Mine make a ragged ripped hole.
Do use a heavy backing behind the paper target?
