« on: April 08, 2021, 10:19:35 AM »
Hello everyone,

I am Rofiel (rvkfour) from the Philippines. I grew up with airguns in our home. My two elder brothers had a 1950s Vintage Daisy Bullseye Target BB air pistol and a Daisy Model 25 BB air rifle. These were bought by our father when he was sent to the United States by our goverment as a Fullbright Scholar. Sadly both of these airguns have been lost through time, though I was able to “play”with them when I was still too little to shoot them properly. When I was old enough to shoot, I started with our very well used locally made Parco Foot Pump air rifle in .177 caliber. Our eldest brother had it restored at the factory when he became a Medical Doctor and he taught me some basic shooting skills.
Fast forward to 1978 and our father gifted me with a .20 caliber Sheridan multi-pump air rifle which I still have. I did a rebuild on it’s pump mechanism at around the 90s and it’s still shooting very well up to now. I still have a couple of the plastic Yellow boxes full of the cylindrical pellets.

Anyway, I discovered this site on the internet while doing research on the different airguns that I was interested in. I’ve been a lurker on this forum for a quite a while before I decided to join in. I’ve found that the members are very knowledgeable with all kinds of airgun topics and are very generous in sharing these knowledge. The discussions are very informative and I am hoping that I will find information that I need to make an informed decision when I buy my next air rilfe.

I would also like to thank you for letting me in into this great airgun forum.

Stay safe everyone. 🙏🏻


Sincerely,

Rofiel (rvkfour)
