I fell into airgun collection by accident.  I buy from an online auction in the area & I picked up a Daisy 86/70 that was in great shape.  Had bbs in, so I shot it a couple times, fell in love with it & have been buying others (when affordable) since.  I had a bunch of questions, but didn't know how to get them answered so I began to look thru the internet for clubs or associations, that's how I found this website.  I'm planning to pass this collection to my grandson (when the time comes) so I wanted to find out if it's better to not fire a new piece.  I bought a Daisy 1894 that hadn't been shot, found out the seals had dried up & had to have them replaced.  Hopefully I'll learn from this website how to survive in this hobby.  I'll leave my other questions for when I learn the website a little.
