want to meet other air-gunners in the Wichita area
« on: August 27, 2018, 05:10:32 PM »
I am Danny and new to The AirGun Guild.  For years I have shot B/P guns, lots of fun but work to clean.  When I was young and
had limited spending I would go to gun shows and buy old pellet rifles if they were metal and wood.  These have been stored for 35+ years.  Now that I am retired I have been resealing and shooting them.  I have some of the modern PCP's, C02, and springers.  A group (5-8) of retired guys get together here in Wichita Ks and shoot airguns weekly in one of our basements.  About 4 guys can shoot at a time, leaving the reminder to shoot the bull waiting on their turn!  Sometime we go outside to a shooting range and successfully shoot at targets (blue rock, and knock down targets) from 50 and 100 yards in the Kansas Wind.  We would like to meet additional air-gunners from the Wichita area.

Hey Danny! 
I don't live around Wichita, but I travel there on occasion to work.  I think I've even been in that basement you describe on one of my previous trips!  (Couches on one side, targets on the other, donuts in the next room?  ;D )

I have met Mark, who goes by rock4gzus on GTA, but I couldn't raise him last time I sent a PM.   I can give you a holler next time I'm coming to town if you like.

Welcome aboard.

I don't know about today, but many years ago (circa 1970), the local gun club used to have airgun meets. Heck, they might not even be there now.

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.

Mark, would be glade to meet you next time you are in Wichita.  Our group of guys are willing to share air guns
and I get exposed to some real nice airguns. 

Wish you could remember that club who shot air gun back in the 70's.
