Agreed, I think having too many airgun is a myth (then again I don't know how many I actually own so I might have too many if that happens to be a real thing)

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

Decent collection but imo you need to move up in price point now.


ditto - there are a number of good rifles, <500fps that run in the $400.00 to $800range. Most of these

are upgradable after you obtain your firearms license. I suggest RWS/Diana/HW's

i bought 38 in 2018. :rolleyes:
2nd most in this 9 year old hobby/passion/sport/past time/collection was 2015 when i got 35.

from 2018, the oldest one is either a Daisy Red Ryder circa 1959, or a HY-SCORE 800B pistol, 1958-1960ish.
12 of the 38 i've haven't shot yet [i've got NIB from 2015!]
24 of those 38 i bought from this forum! one of which was from oshoot, which i found thru the forum.
3 came from wllm995, 4 from wesb2007, jimmy was good for 5, plus a free one. so 6.
2 used air rifles and 1 beauty Daisy 717 i bought at gun shows. (kmlps and pnctn)
3 is the number of new friends i have that will take my money face-to-face.. no shame these guys.. lol. wllm995 (hometown- 5 blocks away!), HuskyDude, a 2 hour drive.. where a son lives! and twister- just 3 time zones away.
1 Marksman Repeater was given to me at a garage sale 'cause 'it was jammed'. yay for people that didn't know how it operated. :)
1 was from russia w/ love (Baikal MP 651-K Modular-the gun w/ the periscope), 1 from spain (NORICA MOD. 56), 2x germany, an Ekol ES55 from turkey.
2 PCPs opened a new facet of air gunning to me this year. a PP700S-A and CR600Wes.

i have a NY's resolution to be more mindful of my spending on airguns this year...

but so far, 21 days into 2019...
i've bought 4.

..and wllm995 has a Cometa Indian listed.

you guys aren't helping. :P

Yes you can have to many guns but only if you have ones you don't ever shoot then what's the point of having them?

I know a guy who has air rifles, HIGH-END air rifles, starting well over $1,500.00 that are

still in their boxes - not touched yet. Likely in the low teens for numbers, THAT is addiction.

While back - he liked the Leshiy so much, he bought 2 - still not shot.

Does he have too many, maybe? LOL

I have too many. :( :(
Hey, I noticed today is my anniversary of joining CAF...9 years ago I only had one air gun and it was a very sad little thing at that. Then I bought a Benjamin Classic, a Winchester 500XS, a Canadian Hunter, a HW97K, a Slavia 631,.....and kept going until I had too many and then way too many. I have been to rehab and now I just have too many. If you don't yet have too many I have a few for sale that would be happy to be bought and shot or just sit and look pretty in your closet. :drinkers:

To cherish them. I do not need to shoot any to remember the joy they all have brought me. I mourn for every that I have lost to circumstances beyond my control. Even my Daisy cub.
