Think the problem may be with your sig. I mean, how can anyone hold a candle to that?
Maybe if you were to take a pic of each and everyone of those beauties it could inspire more to do the same.
What can I say I love looking at cool pics, why not use cheap psychology for the purpose?

....OK, this is my second attempt to reply ,....I like the heft of my M92fs , but the smoother action of my CP88....I tend to shoot the Beretta more because it fits my hand better, so I guess it trumps the Walther ... But for pure 'big bang-obnoxiously loud' fun I go to my Crosman 38ts (.22) ...There's nothing quite like 'letting loose' with one in each hand loaded with fresh CO2 .... One needs a re-seal so I have to use the black one but normally I shoot a matched, polished pair .....Damn, just noticed both my trigger fingers are itchy .....

Well there you go, using "panties in a knot" is way more courteous than "Dead-head"
You exemplify my point, you couldn't be bothered participating in this discussion, until You found
an excuse to get on Your soap-box, and Still, with no involvement with the actual discussion, thanks!

I don't brag about my purchases, in fact I don't much show pics of my collection, because of some petty jealousy?
I simply show my sig to prove my involvement in the hobby, and perhaps to elicit questions and conversation.
I don't even list my forty odd C02 guns, most are the expensive ones too, but I have some cheap ones as well,
they're all fun, you don't have to spend a lot. Inspire or Infect?
The amount of investment I've made in this hobby is nothing compared to what others can entail, it's all
a matter of priorities.

Sheez, way to kill a buzz. Just when I thought this was a cool thread.

Is there a way to keep this thread from showing up? Or to block this user?

'Petty' wasn't referring to You, but I see now, You've decided to own it!

Yes can we get back to the interesting Subject of the Post, thanks to you who actually participated in it.
Or Yes, let's dump this volatile thread!

Here's my entry: Daisy/Winchester Model 11. Good heft in the hand, absolutely trouble-free, rather accurate up to 30 feet for a BB pistol, nice blowback action, over 8 mags with a single cart (depends on temp.). One bone stock, the other has mahogany grips. Love those pistols 8) .

My second choice would be my Walther (Umarex) CP99 Compact, another real nice blowback pistol.

Hope this thread will stay ''alive''... :mrgreen:

Since the thread has expanded to more than one favourite, while the CP-99 is my current favourite CO2 pellet gun, the Daisy 5501 is my favourite BB gun.

It's a relatively small blow-back pistol, but accurate enough to make cans dance at 25-30 feet and hits with quite a punch.

I'm on my 3rd one... the first developed a leak, so I bought a replacement then sold it when I thought I was going to focus on pellets and ignore BBs, then bought another when I decided I liked having a blow-back plinker around.

Haven't had either gun Stephanie, but I know, You know, Your air pistols, the Daisy looks well put together?
I too keep trying to swear off BB guns, the perception right or wrong that they are inferior shooters, but
they are Fun and many have nice action and are very nice replicas, cheap to shoot too!
So here I go again, with my latest order, I'm also trying to resist the Winchester (Daisy) 11K,
the S&W M&P 40, and the ISSC M22, All BB guns!

well panties in a knot is what you've got when your start calling people dead heads... am I wrong....I don't think so
your complaining that people aren't participating in your thread get over it.... :roll:

first you question is completely loaded as mentioned...
how can some one answer it when there are so many good and decent Co2 pistols out there
the crosman 2240 is probably one of the most used and moded Co2 pistols out there,
not much of a pistol guy but one of my favorites is the crosman 600, bit of an air hog but definitely a fun co2 pistol and there are many more....
keep guessing have fun with your thread.... :roll:
