Greeting from the high country of Colorado.
« on: October 15, 2017, 09:46:41 AM »
Hello All
Just joined Guild but have been an air gunner since the mid 1960s. I am a retired  EE worked many years for Digital Equipment Corp,/Compac Computer/HP. Before retiring last year. Now just enjoy life shooting both powder burns and air guns. I have small home machine shop, with a CNC lathe and. Personal CNC mill. I enjoy making things and developing better toys and improving what I can, when I can. Looking forward to learning more about the air guns I enjoy so much. The equipment has really changed since my Daisey Pump BB gun of old.

Then, pay particular attention to Bob Sterne's section here. Not only is he an accomplished machinist, he's one of the most knowledgable airgunners you'll find anywhere.

And welcome. I lived in Littleton, before moving down here to Roswell, NM in 2001. I don't miss the snow and cold weather! But then, I didn't have a machine shop to bide my time!

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.

Welcome aboard. I don't know jack but I sure like shooting these PCPs more than my old Benjamin Silver streak or Crossman 760 and way more than any springer or nitro piston I have ever touched.  Again, I know nothing. If you want advice on how to (Fill in the blank with anything other than how to spend money) I am not your guy.  Fortunately, there are a lot of guys in here that know a ton and will help you out.

I didn't see that you had worked at Digital. If you worked in Colorado Springs, then we have a common friend; Gary Asakawa.
