Hi folks!
I am located in Ontario, live & work in Kitchener and spend as much free time at my Family's cottage property in the area of whitestone/Parry sound where I have freedom from city bylaws to shoot my airguns to my hearts content.
My favorite airguns are of the multi pump pneumatics and spring Piston break barrel variety...
I prefer to avoid government firearm permits so I only collect and shoot .22cal. Pistols and rifles.
I own a Crosman CS5M .22cal Phantom(495 fps) rifle, a first variant Crosman medalist 1322 and a 2012 Crosman 1322 as well as a 1st variant Crosman model 150 CO2 pellgun(Hawthorne Montgomery Ward Co. M-150) & Crosman 2240 and in .177cal. I have a Crosman 1088 CO2 pistol, Gamo PT-85 blowback CO2 pistol and an Industry Brand B1-3 Grizzly Scout break barrel spring Piston rifle...
Plinking and 10 meter target shooting are my main uses for airguns. I do not hunt critters.
I learned to handle guns and target shooting with Daisy &Crosman pump rifles as a boy scout in my youth but didn't own my own until I was 19 years old and that was a Crosman 357 magnum CO2 pistol back around 1990.
This hobby has received a real boost with the age of the internet and thanks to sites like pyramidair.com and D&L airguns..
It's never been easier to acquire a wide variety of airguns and we are blessed with so many quality options even though the Canadian Government has so many restrictions at least there are still some excellent and powerful legal airguns available.
I would love to someday own a Beeman P1 overlever spring Piston .22cal pistol, and once that day comes I like to think that my life will be complete ;)

I don't understand why you only collect and shoot .22 airguns.

The .22 caliber air pistols don't have "bleed holes" to limit the muzzle velocity and energy and pistols like the 2240 and my model 150 are able to dispatch pests and small game even though they are rated under 500 fps...the heavier and larger pellets make a world of difference.
There is no way these .177 cal sub 500fps air guns can pack the same punch as the .22cal. models unless they shoot a few hundred fps faster, which would require gun permits and restrictions on where they can be used.
I don't know if the Crosman cs5m phantom rifle has a bleed hole or not, but I know it was designed for the sub 500fps Canadian airgun market, but all I know is that it blows away my .177 spring Piston rifle, which has a bleed hole to limit velocity below 500fps.

Welcome spinoza!! Glad to see you are also a big fan of multi pump pneumatics and spring pistons. I think once you attain the Beeman P1, this hobby will expand even further for you.

Welcome aboard, Spinoza.

The Beeman P1/Weihrauch HW45 is truly an heirloom-worthy keeper.

Nice pistols Air Heir :)

I didn't spring for a P1 or P11 yet but i ordered a bBeeman p-17 from pyramidair last month.
For such an inexpensive air pistol it is quite a shooter!
