I’m John, from the Phoenix AZ metro area. New to the current state of airguns. Born and raised in Wyoming, getting my Daisy 99 when I was 7. Took part in a training/competition group with it. Learned a lot of the basics. Continued shooting, hunting till my mid twenties. I was always attracted to the idea of being able to make the shot, rain, snow, wind, cold, hot, good position, bad position didn’t matter, make the shot.
Now at 52 and having done many hobbies its time for a change. I’ve been lurking on the internet, looking, reading, researching for months. Something I always loved was benchrest shooting, rather it be the “go to guy” to sight in a new rifle or just running a box or two through. Rather it was short or long or extreme distance I enjoyed it. So that’s what I setting up for with airguning.
I ordered a Thomas BR today and with a bit of luck I’ll have it in hand come the end of October. I looked at a lot of guns before deciding on this one. Bottom line is the proven performance of putting the projectile where the reticle is.
I’m starting from scratch, have a great deal to learn and I’m sure will have questions as time goes on.
