I didn't post for a fairly long time as I was busy installing harwood floor on the upper level of our house. Now that I am nearly done, I will be able to go back to target shooting on a more regular basis and maybe a bit of posting.

I bought the Crosman Silhouette from fishguy last week and I decided to try a different type of grips for one hand shooting. The idea was to use an extension of the grip reaching the forearm in order to lock the wrist. If the arm is completely extended, the elbow can also be locked so it normally would only leave the shoulder with some degrees of freedom.

I just started experimenting with it and I cannot say for sure if it will make a significant difference.

Anyway it looks interesting.

OH HELL YEAH! You will see dramatic rise in scores! That is like using two hands! The forearm support is nice, but never competition legal!

How much would you charge?

Thanks rrdstarr!

I was thinking that it wouldn't be legal for competition but it is not a problem for me because I will use it just for fun in my basement range.

As for making grip for sale, it is not in my plan because as it is I barely find enough time to punch paper.

Also I just use scrap of wood that are available around and I am not very patient with the finishing, so it is good enough for me but it might not be enough for selling.

Thanks Pete!

still looks really nice and gives me ideas! I am a machinist by trade, not a woodworker in any way, shape or form! :oops:

Neat idea I am sure it will improve your accuracy. They look real good in the pictures.

That thing is HAWT :shock: it's crazy how just a grip (not any grip but still just a grip) can change the look and performance of a gun!

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

Thanks for your comments.

My career path has been a bit tortuous. After school, I started working as a graphic artist and illustrator for about 16 years in Montreal. Following that, I got recycled as a technical draftsman at the beginning when I moved in Ontario. As the technology evolved my job included being a CAD instructor too. Later, by extension because it is software related, I also became involved with CNC machining and CAM instruction. I have now been at it for another 22 years. Recently, I have been designing and recording a whole video package (French and English) for the demonstration of SolidWorks to our engineering students.

I started collecting airguns 15 years ago, in another 6 years, hopefully, I should be able to retire and have more time to enjoy shooting my large collection of toys and make some accessories for them.
