I'm Ron Robinson from Texas, a notorious airgun FREAK!

In 60+ years of airgunning I've explored all manner of airgunning activities including hunting small game, varmints, predators and hogs, competing in silhouette, field target and bench-rest competition(s), airgun collecting, and customizing vintage airguns to unbelievable levels of success at the highest levels of airgun competitions. 

I co-founded Texas' first airgun club, and introduced field target competition to the state of Texas with buddy and current AAFTA Governor Leo Duran. I single-handedly started pistol field target competition in the United States, served on the six-member pistol field-target rules committee, and overthrew the Chairman of that committee in a hostile coup when it became obvious the committee's eight months of work was in danger of going to waste by missing the AAFTA Governor's deadline.

I've captured 6 National Champion titles, 18 State Champion titles, and 5 NRA National Record certificates (in rifle and pistol field target and silhouette competitions), posting 5 perfect scores in filed target competitions along the way. Many of the titles and records were captured with 40-60 year-old vintage Crosmans of my own customizations; the modifications effected almost entirely with hand tools (since I'm no machinist).

I have recorded my airgunning experiences in magazine articles and five books (The Manic Compressive, Airgun Hunting and Sport, A Sporting Proposition, Airgun Chronicles- Thirty Yrears of Airgun Testing and Competition, and Custom, Classic and Otherwise Awesome Air Pistols!).

I just found this Airgun Nation forum, and am most impressed with it. 

Howdy, Y'all!
