Hi guys just another air gun junkie. just love them got my first at 11 years old and still just as excited to get a new one today 45 years later as i was then. My name is Bob and I am addicted to airguns. First it was springers then ; pumps, pistols, lever actions,Co2. and now PCP yes on the hard stuff now. Not looking for a cure though just company of like minded lost soul. :drinkers:
Now that's out of the way bring it on. I have an old Gamo Explodmatic that i just love to shoot its a great winter gun as it self loads pellets from a tube 25 rounds. hard to get parts for would like to find more tubes feeders for it. Just got a Gauntlet have to say very happy with it so far, exceeded my expectations. cant wait to hear what other owner have to say, pick up some tips. That's all for now folks look forward to chatting with you.

Welcome, cbs.
I also have a Gauntlet and am experimenting with simply replacing the 'bottle' with a 12oz. CO2 tank. Works beautifully.
Indoors, it's almost as powerful (fast) as when on compressed air and gets around 500 shots per fill. Really nice for indoor shooting
and quite quiet as well.

CBS- the Condor is a rabbit smacker supreme!
The scope is an Optisan Viper 6-24X56IRS
1" kill zone from 1/2" low 18yards to 1/2" high at 38yards to 1/2" low at 54yards.(or something like that with 31.02gr. Barracuda RN's)
works well, but shot these better then the 26gr. polymags - but only slightly.
I was going to get the .22 with extra .25 barrel, and white wolf pm's me saying if I ever put the .25 barrel on, I would never change them
back. I bought the rifle as a .25 - I am delighted that he gave and I followed that advice.
Also, really happy I bought the PP700 from Wes as well. I will be getting the 800 when they come in.

The chaser is fantastic value and a good shooter. I got mine about 6 months ago and aside from a couple magazine loading issues its been fantastic... its on the large side for a pistol and pretty loud but easy to work on and mod. Welcome to the forum!
