Hi from Petaluma, CA. I'm new to PCP too but have got some great help here and I actually just purchased a gun from another member today. Great place to learn.

I thought Californication wouldn't allow the use of lead in ammunition? Maybe I was wrong, and the lead is in the pants of the politicians!

Welcome aboard, and air up often!

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.

Alan,

I might be mistaken but I think it only refers to powder burners and begins in 2018. I'm about 99% sure that air guns are exempt from that. For me personally I will be in Idaho at this time next year and I can only assume Idaho is much more gun friendly than California.

As a side note, both myself and my hunting partner made the switch to lead free high power ammo this year thinking that we had too. The accuracy was the same or better and we both took deer during the last couple of weeks using Federal's lead free bullets. The downer of course is $40.00 for a box of 20 30.06 180 grain cartridges. However, one shot kills means it will cost me $2.00 a year to hunt for 20 years! ;)
