new to the forum
« on: March 04, 2018, 09:43:06 AM »
hello all!  i just signed up today, but like most here i assume, have been shooting airguns since i was a kid.
growing up in a smaller town with a couple hundred acres of vacant woods 1/2 mile from home, we spent our time camping and hunting with airguns, bows, and slingshots.  we mainly hunted squirrels and rabbits with an occasional pheasant.  i'm not mechanically inclined nor do i have the patience for tuning or overhauling my guns, so it's a marvel to me what others have accomplished and their incredible knowledge of this sport.

Welcome! I'm like you in that I don't enjoy advanced tinkering or messing the guts of an airgun. I'm not an engineer, have sausages for fingers, and I like things that cost a grand to pretty much work out of the box. The irony is that I HAVE had to tinker/mess with my guns, but that was a necessity rather than a desire.

You'll find lots of great info and people here.

Hey you guys,

At this point, I'm sort of new here myself.  Been off for a while, but I'm making my comeback. Glad to see new members and I hope to be more involved again.

Welcome to the Guild!

I guess you're correct Joe; We all thought you'd died.
