Hey guys, I've been lurking for a month or two now, thought it was time to make an account and properly introduce myself. I'm 31, and a new father, and I work in the trades. I've lived in SW Ontario my whole life, with the exception of living in the Sunshine Coast BC for a little less than a year.

Airgunning never particularly interested me, I've been bowhunting (mostly deer) for 5 years now, and I love shooting grouse or other small game when doing so. However arrows become quite expensive when you start hitting rocks or losing them. Decided to pick up an air pistol this year, a PP800 which Wes B hooked me up with and has been answering my onslaught of never ending questions haha. I have to say, I was expecting to enjoy shooting it, but was mostly interested in it as a tool, but I've totally fallen in love with it. Definitely stirs up fond memories of my grandfather teaching me to shoot at stacks of magazines in his workshop as a child.

Life has been a bit crazy but I finally managed to have my first sit of this season last night, which actually resulted in me taking a great buck. So the PP800 won't be accompanying me on any more deer hunts this year, but I'll definitely be doing some dedicated small game hunting with it.

Welcome!
I always carried a slingshot when bow hunting, just for those moments. Use larger dia balls if using heavy power bands, glass marbles worked best. I never had the air gun option back then.
