I enjoy shooting my .177 Crossman while I'm waiting for the laundry. The 1911 gets the garage too smokey and it ruins the bullet trap.

Texas is beautiful any time of year.

I recently retrieved my 760 crossman pump rifle from my parents house. It needs a rebuild it won't hold air. Looked online but couldn't find a o-ring kit for it. Thought it might be fun for some backyard firearm safe handling training with my son.He has a pump air soft shotgun replica it don't shoot 2 plastic balls the same ever.The air guns can be fun.
Happy and safe shooting,
Tim

I have a Crosman American Classic Air Pistol which I upkeep. It flings the pellets fast enough and had done-in its fair share of squirrels.

An air rifle is definetly on the list for teaching my kids firearm safety. An RWS would be great, but we'll have to see how the prices are. A wally world special might have to suffice.[/url]

I've got a Gamo V-3 that is a dead ringer for my 1911 compact. It even fits perfectly in the Kydex holster I have for it. I can't guess how many rounds I have through it, it seems I'm always picking up CO2 cylinders. Grasshoppers, milkweed pods, and thistleheads aren't safe from me when I am armed with it. Air pistols (and rifle) are great learning equipment as the low cost allows for plenty of practice, backstops for such are easy to make, and the slow velocities make good technique imperitive for good accuracy.

Well I wont laugh-- I have a couple S&W MDL's 78G, in 22-- one was new in the box, but they sat around for some time because the O rings went bad, as they are known to do. I found a source, and have one back on line, and will get the other up and running this weekend. Mine sits on the desk, with a target about 4 feet away-- I take a few shots every day, one handed. Never hurts-- :)

Several of the olympic shooting events use air rifles or pistols.

always 0.177, always indoor and always at 10m

I shoot my Morini CM162ei almost every day at home

shoot good!

Who's laughiing? I'm sure many of us learned to shoot using these air rifles or pistols. I know my grandparents' farm could be mined for bb's if there was ever a need for them. They probably have the most iron-rich soil in 100 miles considering I kept the local wally-world in business just buying bb's.

You can find reseal kits for the 760 Powermaster, and a whole raft of other classic air rifles, at www.bryanandac.com . The kits aren't cheap, but I'd rather reseal a classic 760 than replace it with one of the less substantial new models.

I love air guns. I've been shooting them since I was 5 and they're what I learned to shoot with. I have several air rifles and pistols all of which are a blast to shoot. I mostly shoot cans with them but I've been known to take out the occasional bird or squirrel on my property up north :wink:
