This forum is the greatest
« on: September 24, 2017, 07:05:05 AM »
I've received so much great info here and continue to do so. I got help yesterday from two members who went out of their way to meet me and one drove a considerable distance to as well. This is just the kind of thing that someone who is trying to learn about the hobby needs and the companionship over a common interest is so cool. Three guys from different walks of life giggling and cooing over air guns and having a blast.

A big thank you to Steve O and Int3man for taking time out of their schedules to assist me. The gun that Michael built for me is amazing and I now have a tuned 50 yard tack driver that's easy on air. I only hope that somewhere down the line I can repay the favor or show the same dedication and courtesy to someone else who may need something that I have to offer.

So far, thankfully, the things we don't have here are brand singularity, and inflated egos surrounding same. If we did, it wouldn't be the learning institution that it is now. We are all blessed!

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.

It was all my pleasure! 

This is the good part about the internet. You make friends online, and then extend that to in person.  I did the same with a boat building forum way back in 2000. Met good folks from all over the world,  which makes it a much smaller place.

I should be more careful what I type out. Inflated wasn't good vernacular with respect to the hobby we all share. Perhaps aired up would be a better one!
