    Any Love for Air Rifles?

    Howdy all! Weather is getting out of the 90s in Charleston and the backyard Airgun range is coming to life once again! I love powder burners first and foremost, but I gotta give proper love to a good springer .177! Rifle of choice is my Weihrauch HW50S. Here is some playing around with small steel silhouettes from Air Venturi!



    Anyone else take advantage of these cost efficient training tools?

    Sound off with any media youd like to share!

    Crazy fun, airguns are. I've had quite a few over the years but the only one I have now is a Sheridan C9A with a Williams peep on it. Thanks for reminding me, I need to dust it off and put some .20 cal pellets through it.
    When I was about 10, I happened upon a guy aiming a C9 at a crow way up in a pine tree. I scoffed at him being able to hit anything at that range.... pop, a cloud of feathers and a very dead crow. Hit like a .22 rifle, made a believer of me for sure. I've had several of these little gems. PITA to pump up though.

    Good call on the Williams! I too have one. Williams model FP-AG-TK. They making shooting these sorts of rifles a breeze! It really is surprising the first time you shoot a well made air rifle. Targets once thought too far suddenly seem perfectly easy!

    I owned a Beeman R1 in .177 a long time ago. What a nice and accurate air rifle it was. I gave it to a good friend of mine who used it for pest control at work.

    They make a fantastic pellet flinger, too! Beeman and Weihrauch use a lot of the same design!

    Love my pellet rifles. Socially acceptable city dweller rifle practice.

    Discharge of air guns is illegal in a lot of cities, if you can believe it.

    I have been very interested in a pre-charged-pneumatic. I have looked at the Air Force models and Leshiy. Big dollars for those but I really like what I am seeing from them.
