Hi! As many requested... the intro post.
Old fart from the 70s. Father of 2. Ex naval reserve officer ('90-'95) Small city guy, parent have a country place, perfect spot for fishing and hunting.
Got a .177 springer when I was 14. That I used for target practice and the occasional pest control.
Move to small game hunting partridges/rabbits (410 gauge) until I got my degree and move to Montreal.

Until last summer, it's been almost 20 years until I touch a gun again.
My mom was tired of squirrel raiding her bird feeders at the country place.
Went to Canadian tire bought the Crosman optimus kit for 140$.
Zeroed in the scope at 25 yard the gun and she was ready for pest control.

Found few videos on youtube, to get more fps out of the gun. One thing led to another... thanks to Ted's Holdover youtube channel.
Looking at a Benjamin Disco as we speak. Still waiting for my PAL.

Cheers.
