New from Buffalo, NY
« on: March 09, 2020, 12:16:15 AM »
I am a new member to the Airgun Guild from Buffalo, New York. My Pappy taught me gun safety and how to shoot at a very young age. I received my first airgun(a spring action cork) when I was 3. A couple years later a used Red Ryder that had bad seals from grandad then the next month at Christmas a new Crosman 760, which at first only used under adult supervision. My first Adult airgun was the first RWS Diana 34 when the company took back from Milbro in the mid 80s(I still have in vg condition.) About 6 years ago I suffered a near death experience which severely limits my ability to breath or walk/stand and I discovered airgun groups on FB. That started me collecting. I have too many guns to mention now, from Pumpers to PCPs. I love vintage stuff but modern airguns excite me also. I just recently started modding Crosman 13XXs and 2240s. I have a 7M range in my bedroom and when I can get help, go out to shoot longer ranges.:ool forward to learning and if possible share my limited knowledge, here on the Guild!....The Bigman

Welcome aboard.

You should read what Bob Sterne did to his vintage Benjamin. It is all under Ask Bob.

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.

Thanks for the welcoming! I read Bob's entry. He is a very intuitive builder with a very detailed step by step.
