German Gate...Do's and Dont's...please read
« on: February 25, 2011, 12:06:27 PM »
Welcome, Welcome to the new German gate here on the GTA! We the members have been itching to have a German gate for awhile and here we go!  ;D
 The GTA has long been known to be the friendliest and most knowledgeable air gun forum on the web. People willing AND able to go out of their way to help fellow members out. With this new gate comes some ground rules, to insure people don't offend other users, or put down what other members are shooting. Check out the guns i own....more China guns then German guns. I love ALL air powered guns, and that's what the GTA is all about, airguns and fun with them!!!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D


DO"S......Have fun! (that's why we are all here ;D) Learn as much as you can about these great German guns. Teach...if somebody has questions and you have answers, help a member out.  ;D All German made guns go in this gate.

               DONT"S......Please no putting down other airguns or their country of origin! This gate is pro-German shooters, Not anti-everyone else!


                     and remember HAVE FUN!- SHOOT OFTEN -SHOOT TRUE!........Bart the Fart

THE GERMAN GATE WILL ONLY FEATURE AIR GUNS MADE IN GERMANY. IF ITS NOT GERMAN IT WILL GO SOMEWHERE ELSE...THANKS

Well, here's why this obscure brand of German made airgun is so superior to the junk put out by Diana, Weihrauch, and Feinwerkbau...
hehe
Seems silly to have to point that out, but some (only takes one goofball) people really do need to be told these things.

I really cotton to rule #2!  You don't know how many times over on the Dianawerk Collective I've seen this sort of thing.  And that should extend to any air gun, if it already doesn't.  Sometimes the HW VS Diana shouting match drives me off that forum for a while.  I'd like to see the tone of this forum be positive.  For example, less crying about plastic parts, etc, and more concentration on what you can get out of a gun or the good points.  We get enough of that in our day-to-day lives.  Or, to quote Sgt. Oddball from Kelley's Heroes, "Always with the negative waves Moriarty, always with the negative waves."

And since this could be a touchy subject....just lay down some ground rules.....dont forget rule #1...  "have fun" ;D...bart

A friend of mine has just bought a Steyr LG110 PCP and I`m hoping to get some trigger time with it and some pics, but it`s AUSTRIAN !!!.................BUT because it`s clinical and efficient (almost Germanic in nature,like the HW100 :-\ ) would you let it in here?

I kinda think it would be better suited to this forum ,rather than the Dark-siders!

  Well I'd say it goes to the dark side :o Did a little research on these guns and man they look great, but if it's not "DE" made then its gotta go else wheres. Rules is rules.(man i sound old saying that  :P) That and the PCP boys will go nuts on that gun ;D I look forward to a full review ,full of pics on that hot rod. Thanks for asking first. i appreciate that very much...cheers Bart

Hi my name is Scott. I recently had my rws 350 turbo tuned by shadow.
I am still amazed at the difference in this gun.He got a high of 910 fps with the rws superdomes.
the accuracy is also a lot better. so my thanks to you Shadow.
I have a good size woodchuck in my back yard. That will be pushing up daisys soon. Thanks Shadow.

Great site, this is my first time here.  I have a collection of German shooters and love every one of them.  I have to say the overall quality of most of the guns I see lately regardless of origin is darn good, a lot better than I was a kid. 
Bart, just wondering if anyone has pulled your finger, does it sound German or American?? From that end we all speak a common language, or at least my wife tells me that.
I look forward to a long relationship here. 
How many Michiganders are here?? ;)

Bart, I just came onto the forum and registered and tried to post to the Help with HW90
post and it failed. Said I wasn't logged in. Yet at the top of the page it said Hello Pied46
then I went back to the response page and tried to post it again; said that I had already
posted the response. What gives?

Were you on my computer Pied46? Sounds like it because mine always does its own unexplainable thing.

Hello OldPink,

Thanks,

I only own one air gun and it is a dandy, Diana Model 48 in .177.  Beware the guy who only owns one gun. Chances are he knows how to shoot it.
