Hello everyone,

I've been away from Air Guns for awhile and finally have returned. Things sure have changed since my first Crosman when I was a kid.
Grew up in Southern Ontario a few klicks West of Dunnville, where I believe Crosman had one of the first factories.
First Plinker was a Crosman 760 which supplied many hour of fun !!!!
Anyone remember seeing this advertisement for Crosman?

Recently picked up a few of Umarex Replicas. (Pretty good looking replicas I must say) And a Benjamin Classic 22.
My daughter is showing interest and enjoys target and plinking too.
Can't believe it took so long to return to this fine sport.

Oh ya and thx Sniper for helping out with my Registration. Image

Thx wllm995,

First one I picked up was the Beretta Storm. Fun to shot with it's Blowback but it does rob the amount of shots per Co2 one can get. (It's a learning curve for sure)

Then I saw a sale on a Walther PPQ. Non-Blowback. Nice entry level replica, triggers a bit heavy. (no pic)

For a little change up a got the Steel Force Now here's a fun little Replica! But you do need an endless supply of BB's and Co2. LOL

The most recent was a Benjamin Classic 22. Not too bad @ around 30m for targets and plink'n. Daughter likes this one. Image

Yes, I also have the Steel Force and the Gamo PT-85 Tactical (related to the PX4 Storm with the dual 8 shot rotary mag). Good choices!
