Hello everyone. I'm 37 in BC. Used to own a few BB guns when I was a teenager. My son is 6 and recently got a red Ryder BB gun for Christmas and our love for shooting at targets took off. I have purchased three different pistols since then and just ordered 2 more. It seems to be turning into a bit of an addiction and I figured I should join a forum to learn all I can about it. Right now we have a little spot set up in our basement because there's still deep snow out there. Looking forward to spring so that we can shoot outside. Not sure where yet but that's one of the reasons I'm here - to find like-minded individuals in my area.

Anyways thank you so much and I look forward to chatting with you all.

Welcome, T_Dogg80. It's a good forum.
One of the better handguns today, imho, is the PP700S-A Artemis.
A search will find the threads on it.

I tried to take a pic but I'm not sure if it's uploading.

We started out with a Daisy Powerline M11a1 which was a blast to use and I love the feeling of the blowback.

Next we got a Crosman Vigilante as we wanted something accurate that also shoots pellets. We love that gun as well and have had a long talk of fun with it.

I then grabbed a Crosman SNR357 as I love the look and the "bullets" that you load it he bb's and pellets into.

I just purchased a H&K USP but decided to return it after playing around for a couple of days. Realized that I love the action of a working slide so I ordered the newer version of the gun with the blowback. I also ordered a Beretta M92a1 because unloading a magazine in 1/2 second seems like something I want to do. Lol

So yes, this seems to be my new hobby and I want to learn everything about the right way to do things. Image

Thanks! I just bought guns that I think I'd like. So far so good. Now I'm starting to look at the bigger picture in regards to specs.

Welcome to the forum T_Dogg80!! Looks like you caught the so called "Airgun" bug. That's a nice collection you have there and I can only see it growing as time passes. I hope you'll enjoy your stay.
