Hello all
« on: June 19, 2017, 10:52:44 AM »
From an Old guy,
New here and to PCP Air Guns.
 
First AG was a 1960's model Sheridan 5 mm, (bought new),
that I used until it finally wore out, with not holding air any more,
many ground & tree squirrels, rabbits, pest birds and several coyotes,
were laid to rest with it's mighty power.
 
Just bought a QB 79, 22 cal,
looking for articles, info/post dealing with modding it, for the best accuracy/ballistics etc,
using dual powered fuels, with Co2 for summer time pesting and HPA for winter time hunting.

Then I'll start over with an Airforce Condor 22 cal, pending final payment.

Hoping to learn more about AR's, to merge with 62+ yrs of the PB shooting, building and enjoying them,
avid Wildcatter, with 17 and 22 calibers being the favorites.

22 yrs ADC work, 36 yrs LE, retired and loving it.

Don't dump the Sheridan! Parts are readily available to put it back into shooting shape. I own a 397, and although I don't shoot it much, it is really nice to have when you need something with adjustable power.

Welcome to the Guild. You'll fit right in, regardless of what powers you're pellets.

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.

Thanks Guys

Being new to AR etc, lots of questions I need to find answers for, doing lots of reading etc.
I really have my heart set up for doing the dual fuel.

Tia,
