Hi everyone. 
My name is Mark and I’m from upstate SC. Years back ~1997 I purchased a house that had pecan trees in the back yard. There were squirrels every where. I also owned my grand parents house that has six  50 + year old pecan tress. I.e. A  squirrel infestation.. I mentioned this issue to a co worker and he said get a airgun II said a “bb_ gun? He said have seen what’s available now? We both vistied a gun store that had Gammo and other brands. I bought a break barrel in 177 and put a fairly nice scope on it. Then one day a guy at a different gun store handed me a FX Trantula and said “take it home and shoot it”. Well, 9 airguns later.. I’m still addicted to pcp’s. I only do pest control. I’d rather watch paint dry than shoot paper.. sorry. No offense..  I  have harvested 100’s and 100’s of squirrels.  Also, I have “killed” lots and lots  of starlings.. 
My job changed in 2010 and I relocated and don’t have the targets of opportunity and time as I used to. 
I stumbled upon this forum looking to repair my FX Superswift.
this is great forum with some really
knowledgeable folks with great information and videos.. I enjoy reading most all the posts.. and  some of the videos are fantastic..
I am really excited about the evolution of barrels, pellets and valving systems that seem to be getting better and better with consumer input and demand..  
I wish all the best to each and everyone of you.
