Hello all.

I am a collector of air guns and airsoft.
I served in the Canadian Infantry for a little over 24 years and the main reason I got into air guns was to collect all of the various weapons I used during my time in the army. Pistols are my main interest as far as pellet/bb guns go and assault/MGs/SMGs as far as airsoft goes.

My wife says I am addicted to them but I say I have a deep passion for them. Either way I tend to buy 2 or 3 at a time, pull them out and ogle them, put them back in the box and store them away. In the end I only really fire 1 or 2 favourites.

I am an avid reader of the forums but do not contribute that much save for issues that rile me I do buy and sell every so often.

Hi, Richard - welcome to the CAF!

I have most of my family currently living in Nanaimo; and I went to NDSS myself back in the day...

Looks like you are off to a strong start with your collection - please let us know which air guns you currently have and which you are planning to buy.

Pics of your treasures are always welcome.

And let us hear more about your favorites.
