Hello everyone.  My name is Joe and I am from East Texas.  I just found this forum today and I am looking forward to learning a lot about modern air rifles.  I grew up in Southwest Arkansas just about 4 hours south of the Daisy BB gun factory in Rogers, Arkansas so naturally, when I was 8 or 9, my first air rifle was a Daisy BB gun.  Christmas of 1957 I was 10 years old and for Christmas I got a Benjamin 22 cal pellet rifle, I believe a model 392.  I shot that rifle so much I literally wore out the pump linkage.  Then in the late 1970s I found and bought another Benjamin 392 mostly just for nostalgia and have shot it very few times.  Now I have gotten the air rifle bug again and just last week purchased a 22 cal Gamo Whisper Fusion Mach 1.  Yesterday I had time to shoot my new rifle a few times and I think I am going to really enjoy this new hobby.  I plan to build a target/pellet catcher and backyard plinking will be the majority of my shooting.  I really would like a PCP but for my usage I just can’t justify the additional cost.
