Hi, i came across this forum while deciding which air gun to get next. Looks like a nice online community with a lot of info :D

My names Kevin, I live in Halton.
I got my first 2 bb guns 20 years ago, a daisy model 105 and a slavia 630(maybe). from my grandad the slavia and the daisy from my dad. It was a 10year olds dream.

I have since gotten a few others, 781, cpsport, pro 77, and a tanfoglio 1911. . . Trying to decide what to get next, the dan wesson 2.5 pellet, peacemaker, mini uzi, p92, or the sig p226.

My friend just got a 9mm sig p226 for around $1200 and never gets a chance to use it, i love rubbing in the fact i can get a copy of his gun that shoots bbs for under $200 and can use it daily indoors or out. Hence my options being licensed copies of actual firearms.

Im also looking into ammo. i ran out of pellets (beeman hallow point, and crosman destroyers. I liked these) im almost out of my swiss arms bbs which were a huge improvement over the copperheads, but i cant seem to find replacements anywhere, hoping to find some similar. (Umarex looks close)

I will try to post reviews of my guns and the ammo i use when i get the chance. in the mean time i will browse the forum for info, pics, opinions. Cant wait to chat with fellow air gunners.

Welcome to the forum!
Looks like your well on your way.
Just ask away for any advice, it's free, and may be worth more than the cost!
I have the Witness, DW 6" pellet, 3 SAA Peacemakers, Uzi All metal full auto, and the Sig Sauer p226
But, I really prefer pellet pistols.
Pays to shop around, prices sometimes vary greatly.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

I will defiantely be picking your brains for advice on future purchases... While browsing this site i came across a colt python in the for sale section for a reasonable price, i made arrangements to pick it up tomorrow. What do you think of the colt python?

I think its your now!!!

But seriously.....

Use the search function in the top right and check out the past threads where it has been discussed and review. several of our members are very thorough in their reviews and how they publish the info to our community either as a post here or a link to their own review sites. Very useful tool once I finally started using it myself.

And post your own review tomorrow! with pictures.

Welcome to the forum. May I suggest you buy a Crosman 2240. LOL Once you mod it with a few easy to do mods with the easy to find parts...you'll have the best pellet gun you ever owned. I quit buying pellet and BB pistols once I got heavily into modding 22XX and 13XX Crosman guns. Make one good modded up 2240 and you won't want to shoot any other pistol. I own over 50 BB, pellet and very high end 6mm Airsoft pistols myself. Welcome to the madness.

Mick

Thanks for the suggestion, i do like the crosman 1322 and theyre a good price. Other than the stock what can be modded?

I picked up the colt python 357 today, quality piece. I may write reviews on all my guns when i have some time.
