Hello from Edmonton Alberta!

I'm new to this forum, but not to airguns.
For a little over a year I worked at my dad's air-gun range Stormbinger Air-Gun Range and Supply. My main job there was to make sure people knew how to operate the the guns safely (RSO) and have a good time. My side job was to fix any broken guns. I worked mostly with older Crosman pistols and a few Daisy pneumatic rifles, but I also know how to troubleshoot on most guns out there on the market. Including any Umarex guns and anything similar. Mainly pellet guns, I didn't work much with BB's, but I still know a few things about them.
My favourite gun is the Umarex Wather CP88 6"

Fixing the guns is one of my passions, my others are drawing and helping people with their animals, and I'm currently in school to do that.

Yes, I am a girl in my 20's and I know quite a bit about the air-gun industry.
If you ever have any questions, just shoot me a message!

Hi - welcome to the CAF!

Nice to see a girl into air gunning.

We need more of you here.

The CP88-6 is a very nice air pistol.

My fav right now is my Umarex Magnum Research Desert Eagle.

Cheers!

Good to hear that you work on air guns

Thank you all for welcoming me!

@wllm995 The Desert Eagle is a nice one, I've shot one of them once, and it sure was fun! Someone had put a laser on one and asked me to sight it in for them.

@rocker45 I think I might know Barry and Murray from the range, they were members there. It would have been fun to go down there and shoot! But I have to stay in school for now.

Wow. Not trying to be sexist or anything, this is just an observation... but I do believe this is the first time I have ever noticed two non-males in the same discussion thread in an airgun forum. Seriously, it's almost as male-dominated around here (or on TargetTalk, or GTA, or AirgunBBS, or...) as it was in the 'old days' when I moderated one Pocket PC forum and was a member of half a dozen others. Back then there was 1 woman on those tech forums to the best of my knowledge. She paid a bit of a price for it too, in harassment of various sorts, mostly from teenagers... but I digress. Times change.

Anyway, WELCOME and it's great to see another non-stereotypical member of the forum! I've actually heard from my wife that she might, eventually, maybe, just maybe pick up an air rifle and give it a try, maybe in a few years. She's thinking about it. Trying her hand at fishing first and yet to catch her first fish, so there's a bit of an outdoorsy road ahead for us. Actually got he to try a Webley Junior pistol for a few shots in 2013, and she smiled a bit, so there's definitely hope. Can't have too many airgunners!
