Hello from the Blue Ridge
« on: February 13, 2019, 12:41:59 PM »
Greetings, I'm a retired engineer living in Western North Carolina on a 3,100 foot ridge. I began shooting airguns about 16 years ago. I now own several, including a couple of Benjamin Marauders (one of them set up for field target), a "Beeman" HW97K, a Gamo Urban, a CZ 634, and a Sheridan Blue Streak. I like to shoot FT, but its a three hour drive to the nearest club. I am the developer of the Pelletgage (nearly four years now) and the new PelletgageR used for gaging head size. I'm also interested in knives and firearms.

Welcome aboard. I don't have one of those gauges, but I suspect what few fliers I get would be minimized if I did. The truth is, I shoot so much (about a 350 count tin per week), that I'd be spending more time sorting, than I would shooting! We do, however, have a lot of guys here who either shoot FT, or at least fancy doing so. And hopefully, you'll get a few inquiries for your products.

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.

Thank you, Alan. The PelletgageR is intended to make the sorting of pellets for head size much faster. A full tin (500) can be sorted in half an hour. I suggest that all one needs to do is sample 50 from a new tin, use the PelletgageR, and you will have a firm idea of the size and distribution of that tin. It can be done in well under ten minutes.

I guess I'll just have to buckle down. I shoot a .25 caliber WAR Cobra, with a LW barrel. I was just out again this afternoon, making sure everything settled in (I had just torn down the gun, cleaned the barrel, and new o-rings. This afternoon's groups were under 1/2 inch at 50 yards, with a slight 2 to 3 mph cross wind. No fliers this time.
