Hi all, from mid Vancouver Island. Just ordered a Diana Chaser and am looking forward to getting to know the airgun world starting with that.

Like most, I would think, I started shooting airguns as a kid many years ago and have been away from it for quite a while. A whole different ball game now; lots to learn!

cheers

Welcome to the forum Skywurd!

I was in the same place as you a couple of years ago. Have fun getting back into shooting. It’s a deep rabbit hole to go down if you want to. :-).

Cheers.

Thanks for the welcomes folks.

I see introduction posts from people who are/were into black powder guns as well. I suppose I am not the only one that started with air as a kid, then went to cartridge followed by black powder, then archery. Pretty much stopped shooting as life and work took me overseas for several years.

Full circle back to air guns now - and yes it does look like a deep rabbit hole to go down!

Welcome Skywurd. I-too am/was into archery as in longbows, recurves and compounds, BP muzzleloaders, BP ctg. rifles, modern powder burning rifles and shotguns, air, as in springers, CO2 and PCP. The shooting sports are big world of adventure.

Thanks for the welcome. I got into muzzle loaders while living in the arctic. Lots of fun with shotgun and .50 cal round ball. Archery came up when I returned south - pre season for deer and elk with an uncle of mine. A firearm just didn't seem right when we were seeing a couple of dozen every day. Mostly just out of bow range, naturally.
