What have you bought lately?
« on: January 06, 2021, 06:31:23 AM »
This is an older topic/thread, but a fun one so I thought I would revive it. Covid has 'helped' some us purchase/acquire new items for our airgun hobby and I for one have been on a 'run'. I thought I would share some new stuff that I have added to my collection of shi..."stuff" in the last few months.

Sam Yang 909 Light Hunter .45
Leapers Bugbuster scope (909)
.45 caliber air bolts
Schwacker broadheads
Rotometals non-lead casting material
Single shot attachment (Impact)
BagRider stock attachment (Impact)
Superduty arrow backstop
New gong with stand

That's all I think of off of the top of my head. I remember in the past in a thread like this that there was some great exchanges on products, uses, etc.  So now that I've primed the well, what have you guys obtained through retail therapy?

Kevin! It was you who said, that if you own an FX airgun, you don't need many others (or words to that effect). Okay, you ask for it.

Two, not one mind you, but two Hill EC-3000 compressors. One for home, and one at the ranch. You need these, when you shoot about 60 rounds per day average. I (only) shot 22 rounds this morning (windy), but earlier in the week, I shot over 150 rounds before noon! Which leads to the next item...

Since January first, I've purchased 10,000 rounds of Nielsen slugs. That won't last me very long.

There's more, but that's a start!

By the way Kevin, would you like to have a few hundred FX HyBrid slugs?

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

Absolutely! I'm still in the infancy of learning my Impact, but with out-the-box results as good as they are it can be a relaxed process over time. I would put those slugs to good use as I am still using different types of ammo, logging results, etc.

Thank you!!!

I swapped my 909s to Kevin for my Fx Streamline .25 and boy does it shoot straight.

I bought a slightly used SWFA 6x for the Texan because I've soured on the BSA Scopes.

I've actually been avoiding spending money except on essential HPA connectors and the like. Selling off old bee keeping stuff, left over boat building parts, a beautiful vintage Ludwig Marching Drum, and a few other bits and pieces topped off my PayPal account.

Of course Alan Santa Clause has surprised me more than once with his generosity. :)

Life is Good.

So my adds are...
Impact II WITH PP.  700mm.
loved it and ordered superior liner to try slugs.
Tried them all
for my gun NSA ARE AS GOOD AS ANY.
I still need to tweek it and probably make it faster but I love the NSA slugs.

As do I. In your case, I suspect the extra 100 mm is for the heavier versions? I shoot the 26.8 grainers at 940 FPS (≈53 FPE). They're almost all in the same hole at 100 yards at the indoor range. Amazing to me!
