I’ll start it out...

I’ve never shot my Chrony, but I’ve been mighty tempted.

New? I never had the money, so the one I use is only rented.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Building duck boats now that I'm "retired".

"Once you buy the initial equipment it's cheap to shoot airguns"

Right. That was a few thousand ago.

Don't know who said it first, but a few guys have used this one in their forum signatures:

"I'm afraid that when I die, my wife will sell all my airguns for what I told her I paid for them."

Sounds about right... dang, I'd rather not think about it in terms of cash. Better to re-frame the airgun value question in terms of mental health; just think of all the $150/hour therapy sessions I don't need thanks to the time and money I've put into airguns! Especially time. Tinkering, machining, inventing, it's all conducive to better mental health. Compared to doing actual work, anyway.

If we're talking about quotes...

Crosman/Benjamin openly state that both of their pump guns (397 and 392) will develop 14.9 FPE. The truth is, the .177 (397) is closer to 11 FPE, and the .22 (392) just over 13 FPE. Both require 8 pumps to do so. They must have been using helium!
