Just dropped it to introduce myself.

I'm fairly new to air guns, but got into it during the past few months after buying 6 of them from Replica air Guns.com ( Covid gave me a reason to buy onlne )
I do like replicas, I do tend to prefer pellet for paper target, and BB's guns I buy are more for the replica aspect.

One day I hope to advance into the more serious air rifle dept' ..but for now ..plinking is fine

I hope to buy a few more, and make myself a little gun hanging wall.

That being said, I am not new to firearms and militaria.
I've been been in uniform a few times, and have been a serious collector of deactivated firearms in the past ( I still own a few )
But my biggest collection are WW1 Canadian uniforms.

These are the replica air guns I have

Dan Wesson 715 4" pellet revolver, adjustable sights
Sig Sauer X-FIVE, Pellet , adjustable sights
Sig Sauer P365, BB
Glock 17 Gen 4,BB
Springfield Armory ,Model 1911, BB
Crosman DPMS, SBR, BB

And on it's way a Smith & Wesson M&P, BB blow back
and H&k VP9

I'm on the look out for a Beretta M92 All metal Blow-back BB ( By Umarex, sold out everywhere )
Cheers mates

Welcome to the forum!
Nothing wrong with plinking and punching holes in paper with replica. As long as you're having fun, it's that matter!

Welcome aboard.
Lools like you just missed one: https://www.airgunforum.ca/forums/topic86117.html
Stick around. They come up for sale every month or so.

By the way, congrats on your great start.
For replica collectors, one per month is about right :P
Unless you're one of several collectors
that have been known to do five or six in a month. :tonqe:

There are tonnes of collectors and plinkers in the forums, TAG.
So feel well at home.
Enjoy.

Looks like OP just like me who like the M92A1 more than the pellet version M92FS which just sold.... [emoji38]

I will keep the M92A1 BB version until one day I buy a real M92 to replace it~ it's a more realism copy than the pellet one~ Love mine although it really makes a huge group when shooting.... [emoji38]

Thanks for the replies guys /or girls

Yes, I did see the Beretta for sale, but too late.
Just like YepYep, I prefer the BB version as a replica, the pellet version looks nice..but just not what I wanted.
I can image that it does not shoot too accurately..I've see reviews

For accuracy my Dan Wesson 715, pellet is the best I have. There is no slide wobble to deal with, pellets are loaded into a single shell casing, and the rear sights are adjustable for elevation and windage
so at 35 feet, I can get a good grouping on 1" to 1.5 inches depending on the wind... unfortunately for me, my back ward is just behind a farmers field and we get lots of wind.

Shooting in my garage is not that much fun as the max distance I can get is only 20-21 feet..no real challenge

Edmonton<500, For me it was more like 6 guns in 3 months... LOL. Thanks to Corona and boredom
