THE ADDICTION
« on: February 24, 2016, 05:04:17 PM »
I stared shooting AG when I was 6, my dad bought me a Daisy red rider bb gun and took me out to the hog sheds to kill starlings and sparrows at night. Then when he thought I was responsible enough at age 9 he bought me my first air rifle, the Daisy 880. I shot so many birds and had so much fun.  In 2years I had wore the pump on the 880 so he helped me buy my first springer it was a rws in .177 cal, don't remember the model just know it took 2 hands to cock it but I killed squirrels and rabbits around the farm every season till I went into the army at age 17. The rws was handed down to my brother and what he did with it I don't know..when I came home from my tour of duty,3 years later, bought a Benjamin sheridan in 20 cal ..Many years and 3 kids later I decided to buy another break barrel, so I bought a Benjamin trail np1 in. 22 liked it so much I bought the Np2 just to find out I did not like it.I met Travis on gta last year and now my addiction has turned to the Pcp world, the only problem with that is I really need to win the lottery cause I want almost 10k worth of pcps and a compressor. The wife is almost as addicted as I am she just is more restrictive with the money than me.. Hope I didn't bore anyone just telling my addiction story..

I know!  Seriously, if you want a little compassion, read a romance novel. The nerve of some people. Just take your happy @$$, sit in front of your computer and order that wish list right now.  Or I'll ban you.

Brian I feel your pain-minus the wife to worry about lol

I bought my first "adult" airgun to help a friend eliminate the many critters that kept raiding his garbage and doing damage to his house. In an effort to learn more about it, of to the net I went. Found GTA and it's been downhill since.....I refuse to actually count the number of guns I have(30+ is all I know) so I can still deny I have a problem ::)

Now that I made it to the darkside, the $$$ I want to spend just keeps going up lol

John

BTW thanks for inviting me over to the Guild! Nice to be in at the ground level where I can help and watch this place grow into another great resource for newbies and veteran shooters alike!

No sympathy from me either! Heck I blame grumpy for my addiction. He tried to be all slick about it too. Just like a crack dealer! Here, try this, here, just a bit more, oh, now try it with a tank, oh, by the way you owe me such and such for the fill assembly!! Before I knew it I was a full blown addict and didn't even know what had happened!!!!! Dang, I just tried to imagine how much I have spent on AGs and accessories and I think a turd slipped out. Really have to strain to even imagine the totals! Crap, then add all the pellets! Lord have mercy on my soul............

Oh airgun, airgun, wherefore art thou airgun?
Deny thy addiction, and refute thy pocketbook;
Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn to deny your love
And no longer be a Guild member… NOT!

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.
