New Old Guy.......
« on: August 12, 2021, 07:58:09 AM »
Name is Jack Kraemer and am from Wichita Kansas. Not new to airguns but am new to Internet forums. Just purchased my first big bore rifle a Texan LSS 457-CF. Had many springers in the past and still have a FWB 124 Sport. Taught all the kids to shoot with Beeman R1’s of different calibers. Looking forward to participating in the discussions and soaking up knowledge from others more experienced than myself.

Welcome aboard.

You'll feel at home here, as a lot of our folks are in love with big bores. Our illustrious webmaster, Steve, is a typical example.

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).

Just don't shoot it too much before you clean the barrel thoroughly (which should be done every session)  Avoid the mistake that many of us made and don't foul the barrel.
