My introduction to Airgun Guild
« on: March 21, 2020, 10:27:54 AM »
My brief Bio.

My forum name is the same across all the ones I have joined in regards to airguns.  So I'm an open book.

Reintroduced to airguns about 10 years ago.  Tinkering is my thing as they say, knowing when to stop is sometimes an issue, which ties into my catch phrase, "If it's still working, I haven't fiddled enough with it."  The idea is either to restore or improve on the design so that it runs as smoothly as possible.


My airguns include some old and newish stuff, springer, Co2, pump and PCP.  PCP took over for me about 6 years ago.  Still I like to take the other stuff out for review and further design tweaking.  I also enjoy shooting them, an important point to remember, though tweaking seems to be a major point of focus lately.

GTA has been the main source of all things airgun for me, with forays on other websites for information and general entertainment, often using the power of Google for airgun research.

I have been lurking on "The Airgun Guild" for awhile now and wanted to join in.

Thanks for having me.

Dave

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.
