​Hello.
My name is Ronald. I live near Stony Plain, Alberta, just west of Edmonton. I have been shooting and tinkering with airguns since the mid 1960's, though as a 'farm boy', I started with firearms at an early age, . Airguns gave me a chance to shoot where a firearm couldn't be used. My current collection includes CO2, springers, multi-pump and PCP.

It goes without saying, extracting as much power and accuracy as possible, has become an obsession with me. A small, well-equipped machine shop (courtesy of my continually supportive wife) which I share with my son & partner, makes this and running my little business, Innovative Machining, possible.

At this point, my interest is concentrated on inexpensive CO2 AND PCP and modifying a single-shot into a multi-shot. If you're interested, you can visit my website, (http://www.innovativemachining.ca) to see a slideshow of the steps in the process my converting BAM B-50.

Had lots of help to get set-up on this forum. I will be learning how to post and upload pictures to this forum, however, I am just barely computer-literate. :rolleyes: so bear with me.

Hi, Ronald - welcome to the CAF!

Sounds like you will fit in just fine here.

Lots of people here from AB - with local clubs and shooting events.

We can always use another machine shop savvy member; as well.

Enjoy!

:D
