Hi there,

My name is Darren and I started shooting again a little over a year ago after many (30) years layoff.

I had a little pellet gun as a kid and also did some trap shooting with a buddy up in Duncan growing up.

I picked up a Crosman Optimus air rifle last year and started shooting with the airgunners in North Saanich on Wednesday nights and found out I still enjoy the sport. Being a golfer as well, I find many of the skills to be transferrable/interchangeable, which has definitely helped my golf game!

I'll be posting my Optimus up for sale, as I'd like to go from a springer to s single-stroke pneumatic for 10m air.

Cheers,

Darren

Hi, Darren!

Ex-Victoria native here.

Look into the Daisy 953 for an economical and accurate single stroke pneumatic air rifle (sometimes on sale at Princess Auto for about $60!).

BTW - you might want to post a pic with the current date and your name on your air rifle up for sale (due to some problems with scammers here lately).

Plus - you should also include what forms of payment you accept.

Just some suggestions...

Hey Darren!

Welcome aboard!

I am down in Langford and would like to find how to join in this North Saanich shooting league!?!?

I am a machinist by trade and semi-retired, for another month that is Lol!

Follow what Doug instructed you to do and you should' have any hassles selling your Crosman. You looking for a pistol or rifle for 10m?

Cheers!

Hi guys!

I am a total newbie at selling online (excluding Used Victoria).

What should I accept as payment?

Rick-i just looked online and found the Wednesday night shooting event from 6-8pm. It is really casual-just show up, sign into the range and pay $1 for eight targets. If you are a member of the Victoria Precision Shooters, the targets are no charge.

Now that golf season is winding down, I am going to look into the Sunday airgunning in North Saanich, too. I believe it is in the morning.

Doug-that is exactly the model I am looking at-the fellow who shoots next to me has one, and I am way more accurate with his. signed up for the Princess Auto online Flyer's, too...

Thanks a million!

Darren

Being an ex-golfer of more than 40 years (no bones don't bend no mo!), I can confirm several similarities, especially the one that says, "In for a dime and you're in for $1,000 - $2,000 a year (IF you can live with having a long wish list) :P

Welcome aboard!.
