Just curious if any Arkansas members.

Umarex is 45 minutes south of me, Daisy is 20 minutes north of me..........you would think this would be a little hot bed for airguns.........I'm thinking I'm the only person in the state that shoots airguns. lol!

Never been in the Northwest but have not lived here long.
Yes the 953 is fun to shoot as it is accurate. Would be nice if it was about 100 fps faster.
Sure there are more of us. Maybe your post will bring them out.

Duplicate of post I just made in the 'Carrol Co Airguns' thread:

'Tom @ Buzzard Bluff' weighing in from just South of Mammoth Spring. 'Buzzard Bluff' is this old limestone bluff 200' above a small river that I live on where the buzzards soar and play in the standing wave of air rising up the face of the bluff.

Hello Deanda,  I am in Fayetteville and have found a few shooters in NWA.  There used to be a great shooter and event organizer in Berryville.  He organized multiple FT events and then some benchrest.  Unfortunately,  rimfire benchrest has possessed him for the past few years.

When time allows, a couple of local shooters and I will take a ride out to Tulsa on Thursdays.  They have a wonderful weekly indoor 10M silhouette match from 6-8P at the oil capital gun range.  There is open shooting from 330P until the match starts.  Pistol shooting begins at 6P and is followed by rifle.  Typically around 20 members on any given Thursday.  It is quite a friendly environment and a great chance to see some interesting rifles.
