    Another air powered product that intrigues me is the Benjamin Airbow.

    My next purchase will take me from the .177 to manly .22. The wind deflection is too much with .177

    That may be a consideration if I move. I hunt in the swamps / swamp forests down here in south cackalacky and donít have too much wind ever to contend with. My house gets windy when itís storming and thatís about it!

    I do have a Crosman .22 that doesnít shoot worth a damn. I canít get the pellets to impact anywhere near a zero. Itís about six - eight inches high at 25y. Repeatedly, mind you. Could be a smashed gasket, could be a slight bend in the barrel. Thatís what pushed me to the HW50S. I also read that pretty much across the board, .177 vs .22 in ideal conditions? .177 came out on top for accuracy / precision. A head shot is a head shot. Doesnít matter if itís a .22 or a .177. Pop, flop.

    What .22 are ya lookin at??

    Any tips on how to hold a springer offhand and also how to shoot it from a rest? Have a Hatsan that wants to shoot ok, and have read to hold light with support hand close in, but if my pinkie isnt held just right I miss my chipmunk....

    Iíve got a Leshiy 2.0 in .22 250mm barrel.
    Lights out accurateÖ like smoking chipmunks at 50 plus yards accuracy.
    Purchased from Edgun West with a small 300bar compressor.
    I run Crosman Premier HP 14.3g pellets zeroed at 25 yards. Pretty much cover shots with a dime.
    Love the damn thing. I put a Burris 4x16-50 BDC w/LED reticle on it. Gun with scope and compressorÖ ~$3500.00
    Painful but absolutely worth every penny.

    Cavalry hold onlyÖ donít brace/rest it on anything. The springers are touchy on holding. The minute you rest it your zero will drift because of double recoilÖ fore and aft.
    Because of age and injury Iíve given up shooting my springer (Gamo 220 in .177) and use pcp now. Much more consistent hitsÖ like I have to try and miss.

    I just rest the forestock on my open palm and maybe curl a finger or two very loosely around dem the bottom. Cavalry hold as the fine gentleman below described!

    Got any pics of that Leshiy set up!? Sounds very nice!

    I have an air pistol my uncle gave me before he passed. Itís a 1960ís Crossman 22 pellet gun. Very cool, all metal as far as I can tell. He had the box and receipt. Off the top of my head I think he paid $13 for it at Pay and Save. Looks kinda like a Ruger MK gun. We take it camping and itís a big hit with the kids. Very accurate. I need to get a rifle to go with it.

    He also gave me a 60ís Crossman BB gun and a 1917 Winchester pump/tube 22 that he got from his dad (grandpa) who got it from his brother (my Great Uncle) who passed in 1930 I think from TB. No idea if heís the original owner but Iím at least the 4th in the faimily to own it now.
