Greetings from the Niagara Region. Welland, Ontario.

I've owned several pellet and bb guns for the past 20 years. I bought my first one when I was in high school and after researching the forums for the past couple days I realized it was a 1377 Crosman. I believe I might have let it go for a bit under what it was worth. The seal was missing and I got tired of pumping it every single time I wanted to shoot it. I like my CO2 pistols and don't see me getting into PCP or Pneumatic but who knows, that might change.

I just recently sold a few of my collection. I am now regretting it, but the bright side is I can make room for better and newer ones.

Here is the list of guns I used to own. Airguns and Airsoft.

AIRGUNS:
Hatsan Mod 30 .177 rifle
Crosman Marksman repeater .177 pellet, 4.5mm bb pistol
Smith and Wesson M&P 4.5mm bb pistol
Crosman Medallion 1377 .177 pellet pistol
Crosman 357"6" revolver .177 pellet pistol

AIRSOFT:
WE 1911 Airsoft 6mm pistol
KJW Glock 27 Airsoft 6mm pistol
TM Glock 26a Airsoft 6mm pistols (2 of them)
UTG M3L Airsoft shotgun 6 mm gun
Echo1 SCAR Airsoft 6mm rifle


Guns I still own.

AIRGUNS:
Walther CP99 Compact 4.5mm bb pistol
Crosman 1088 .177 pellet, 4.5mm bb pistol
Crosman Pumpmaster 760 .177 pellet, 4.5mm bb rifle

AIRSOFT:
Crosman C11 Airsoft 6mm bb pistol
TM Glock 26a Airsoft 6mm bb pistol
ICS M4 CQB Airsoft 6mm bb rifle

Any idea what thread I can go to so that I can ask about some problems I'm having with my Crosman 1088?

Thanks and go easy on me. I'll try hard not to break forum rules.

Cheers,
FACE

Hard to believe it's been almost 6 years till this post.

I was going to post a welcome thread but when I looked back at my posts I realized that I already did.

Anyway, I'm thinking I might get a little more serious with this hobby but I can't make any promises as to whether it will keep my interest or not. As goes with most of my hobbies they come and go like the wind.

I no longer play Airsoft and have been separated for a year so I figure I could devote more time to getting to know this sport.

I am right in calling it a sport ............................... aren't I?

At any rate, I'm back and it's good to be back. Would like to know of anyone that is local or near by?

Cheers,
FACE

Welcome back FACE! It's never too late to come back to this hobby. Hopefully you'll be able to add to your present collection.

Right now I've been primarily collecting them but I figure I should start using them. I don't have anywhere yet and am looking at my options.

My back yard backs into a set of tracks but I'm concerned with raising suspicion with my neighbours.

Looking at some ideas on building an indoor pellet trap.

I just moved back to port from st. kitts. there I had a huge fenced in yard --neighbors on each side were great and also never home. now in port I;m reduced to a small storage garage with about 18 feet to my targets and 3 other apartments in the building. so I have 11 guns and hardly shoot them anymore. sucks.

Oh.i consider both airsoft and target shooting sports. Air soft especially. I know some may scoff, but at times I have far more fun with my full auto +24 rounds a second airsoft m4. When I can't hit my targets and am having a bad day with the pellet gun it's a lot of fun to spray and pray and hit your target hahaha. Plus playing on a field with BBS flying past your head is quite a rush. Airsoft repair and modification also requires less tools and is equally rewarding. Nothing like hearing those pellets getting squishes flat as a pancake after shooting a piece of metal though..
