Hey all – I'm Jim, 55 married and live in central Upstate N.Y. USA.  I'm actually a "shooter" of a totally different flavor – photography.  I was a US Navy Photographers Mate in the mid 1980's stationed aboard the U.S.S. Midway CV-41 which was an old aircraft carrier based out of Yokosuka, Japan.  I have an old RWS model 34 that I'm pretty sure I bought either slightly before I went into the Navy or (perhaps?) just after getting out in 1987.  I used to shoot it just for fun – mostly small game ( squirrels / rabbits / pests ) and then it . . .  disappeared – for years.  It's recently re-appeared though ( 😉 ) – I found it out in my barn while looking for something else actually.  I've been toying with it  / shooting some again and actively reading up on the sport / tech ( WOW – have pellet guns changed!! ) and have just recently taken the plunge to purchased a PCP which I'm excited to take delivery of soon.

Anyway – that's me (in very brief) – I'm basically very new to the scene, looking forward to learning lots – gave already learned a lot – been watching lots of youtube videos, reading reviews on various makes and models of pcp's, etc . . . .  studying up prior to pulling the trigger ( yeah – insert cheesy drum roll cymbal crash  👀 ) on making a purchase.  I'm kind of looking for a "welcome to your new gun – here is what you do to get started" – break in period, "leading the barrel" ( just saw something about that today as a matter of fact), mounting and sighting the scope, etc . . . .
