« on: January 19, 2019, 10:14:42 AM »
I’m chomping at the bit.

Ain’t she purty in an interesting way?

If you want to do it, Steve, we should swap out the bow on your Chair for the latest model with the bigger/wider rear fork. I have one here ready to go. I'll use yours for a standard stock model demo. The Mad Dog stock fits much better in the new ones. Try mine tomorrow and see what you think. I found that the original rear fork almost made the gun 'balance' on the rear rest. The new ones also have the additional holes for the strap.

See you in the morning.

I’ll take a look. So far it seems balanced and secure.

Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Grinding out a living on the farm.

"purty" As Forest Gump would have said... Purty is as purty does!

The real key ingredient here is not the looks, but the functionality! Remember the old joke about the very capable, but ugly wife? You can always use a sack!

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.
