Howdy y’all! I hunted with a Crosman 760 decades ago down home in WV with my cousins & uncles. Still have the original with wood stocks. Living in NE Ohio nowadays, I need to find a shooting range, & decent places to hunt that aren’t small & overrun. I like muzzleloaders for deer & the like, but all these pesky starlings & rabbits that destroy any attempts at gardening led me to look at these modern magnum air rifles. Perusing Walmart’s online sight for them, all 50 pages, led me to the Winchester 1400CS with bipod, 3-9x32mm scope, strap, muzzle break & mossy oak camo stock. All for $213. Also ordered a couple different weights of pellets & the Pellet Pen. I use something similar for my percussion caps & quickly realized it’s value afield.
Watching YouTube videos on these modern wonders, It’ll be here Friday or Saturday for pick up. Can’t wait! I’m retired & partly disabled, with a bad lumbar & hips bone-on-bone. Trying to get it all fixed, so I can hunt again. but this air-style sniper rifle look-alike should enable me to get some hunting done from a sitting position? All these things led me here, as I’ve been away from the sport for too bloody long…
