Henderson seems to be, more or less, central to the east Texas respondents; however, we're still needing a place to meet, group and shoot.  Anybody.... :-\ ?

I live in Rusk.  Just got a benjamin trail np yesterday. It's my first air rifle. Had a lot of fun.  Looking forward to hunting with it. Wouldn't mind going to shoot with some people and meeting new folks.

I just moved to Whitehouse (10 miles south of Tyler). I would be interested in meeting with other airgunners in the Tyler area.

I'm still in Rusk, my Condor is about as powerful as it's going to get on co2 at 26fpe. I have a couple of airforce hpa tanks (490cc), but I'm waiting on my dedicated crossfill tank for hpa(it's only 72cu inches, but its a start). I found a dive shop in Tyler that will do 3000psi fills, and I'm excited to finally test this thing on hpa!

The dive shop in Lufkin will fill to 4,500 PSI. Very nice guy understands air gunners.
The dive shop in Nacogdoches has told me he will also fill to 4,500 PSI but I have not gotten around to using him yet.
Might be closer for you than Tyler....

I am in Merryville, La. and have family in Shreveport. My son there and his daughter shoot air guns. I'll keep an eye on this thread, too far for me to drive just for a day, Maybe something will happen and we can do this.

Best,

Once upon a time, not too long ago, there was a small group of guys who got together to shoot air rifles on Sunday afternoons.  When we get back to Rusk, in October, I'll see if this group has any continued interest in air guns and if that range is still available.

ITMT,.......?

I'm still interrested Greg.  Just need a range and some company.  Let us hear from you when y'all get back.

I'm still interested too. My .357 upgrade kit should be getting here next week.

I live in Rusk, I usually just shoot the squirrels in my back yard. I have been wanting to try some coon hunting, but every one only wants to take their powder burners. I cant seem to get anyone interested in air guns

Well here is one...My problem is that I've run out of squirrels.

With all due respect, I try to maintain a smaller than average footprint online. I appreciate the sound advice and perhaps in the future I may consider using the map feature, but where I live is a small town... takes about five minutes to drive from one side to the other. As with all small towns, I probably went to school with some of the good folks on these forums and I think a casual reach out in this thread is enough to make contact and plan a meet. Just the same, thank you for the advice.

Well I'm with you on that, there is not a lot that is considered an appropriate pest animal for my .357 condor. Now it's modded and shooting heavy and hot again. That's okay, it's ready to be a hog hammer, or a deer harvester once Texas wakes up and modifies it's antiquated airgun laws for hunting.

Since this thread started, the price of gasoline has dropped a $1.00/gal., deer season and other stuff has happened, is there now any interest in air gun activity in the Pineywoods of east Texas?

Completely forgot about this thread....lol. I'd like to get together some time. Do you have any land around or just your back yard?  I don't have any and I'm pretty limited at the house. Just a couple acres in town

How do you word it... "Air Guns" or "AirGuns"?
