Hi, I am a new member here and have been into air guns for many years, probably about 30+ years now. I have about 15 or so air guns currently and like most people can never seem to have enough. :) I'll list some of my collection below but just wanted to say hi and that I'm looking forward to chatting with members and getting some great information on the sport. I'm in the Belleville/Trenton area of Ontario otherwise known as Quinte West. I have a preference for 22 cal pellet rifles but I do have some 177 rifles and a few BB rifles as well. When I was younger I had a good friend who lived on the Tyendinaga Mohawk reserve and we used to spend a great deal of time out there shooting all our air guns. Those were the days. :)

The for sale section certainly caught my eye, deff a few items I'd like to add to the collection. :)

I currently have the following in my collection:
Drozd BlackBird MP661K - extended barrel, 6/9/1200 mod
Crossman RM 422
Beeman 1040
Benjamin Sheridan Trail NP 22
Crossman 1077
QB-78
Griffon JH-809
QB-58
Crossman 2240 - Converted to Rifle
Beretta CX-4 Storm
H&K MP5
Umarex Steel Storm
Few pistols like Pro 77, Crossman 357 (with 4 and 8 inch barrels, 20 years old works like a charm), Walther PPK/S, Crosman 1008, couple others. :)

Welcome to the forum netrecon! You have built up quite a collection there. I can see it growing above 20 in the future. Happy Plinking!!

Thanks megiddo65, Yes, there are a few other items I'd like to add to the collection, I happened across the forum here and the wealth of information being shared is excellent.
And the for sale section is great, nice to see the airgun community is very active and alive in this day and age.
If my collection grows much more I'm going to run out of locker space to secure them :) But with such an assortment in the collection now its hard to consider parting with something to get something else but I might have to make that sacrifice someday. :)

Collectors Quote:
O bliss of the collector, bliss of the man of leisure! Of no one has less been expected and no one has had a greater sense of well-being than... a collector. Ownership is the most intimate relationship one can have to objects. Not that they come alive in him; it is he who comes alive in them.”
― Walter Benjamin

So true is the Walter Benjamin quote! The hobby has given me a time where I can relax and think of nothing but the target. I've narrowed my guns to a few for plinking(multi pump pneumatics and CO2 pistols) and a few for target shooting(Springers). The urge is always there to pick up something new; especially when I see it reviewed on this very forum. The Umarex MP40 looks quite enticing as I'd like to open up full auto on a pop can.

Greetings!
Good collection, but sadly lacking in Pistols?

I spent a lot of time on the Mohawk reserve too. Used to motocross on the track beside the speedway.
