Greetings! I am a semi-neophyte to the world of serious air guns, and I finally decided I would like to hear the voices of other devotees of the sport. I got into this hobby because I live in an area with abundant (and often destructive) amounts of small game, and couldn’t use a conventional rifle. I have shot many small-caliber powder-burners over the years, and maintain my skills in archery. My current airgun collection amounts to a Gamo Silent Cat (my introduction) and a Hatsan 155 Torpedo Vortex. I would consider myself semi-serious in my quest for the perfect shot (I’m not big on weighing, measuring, chronographs, expensive pellets, or PCP rifles, and a 1/2 inch group is fine at 30 yards), but I do derive a lot of pleasure from this sport. When I am not shooting, I am a career Paramedic (and former English teacher, if you couldn’t tell) and amateur carver of tobacco pipes. I look forward to delving deeper into the sport and learning much from those much more technically inclined than myself. Alonsy!
