good day all :D
I have recently started shooting air guns and what a blast!
I have a Crosman model 7-30030 vantage .177 rifle with a 4x32 scope.
A Daisy model 93a BB c02 pistol, and recently acquired a Daisy model 1894 BB rifle that
needed some tender love and care and found out how to do that here from airmec (thanks bud).

I like these guns a lot, fun to shoot and cheap to purchase and ammo is dirt cheap.
I never knew people where into these guns like they are, and i plan on coming back
here often to find out more information.

Can't wait for the gophers to come out in spring lol, until then frozen water bottles work really well.

Regards to you all,
old dude
Saskatoon, SK.

Welcome, old dude. Sounds like you've got a good start. What are you going to use on gophers?

The pellet rifle I'm sure will kill as i never shoot unless i have a kill shot.
Distance will be the factor, when i use to shoot years ago with 22 cal and up
if the shot wasn't a make shot, i never shot. My dad always said if you can't kill it
don't shoot it, cause if you only injure the critter you may have to track for miles. Always made sense to me.
Of course he was talking about deer, and moose. This is all new to me so I'll have to work it out as i go.

Welcome old dude! I think the addiction has started already. This forum will definitely feed and nurture it.
