    I finally had the funds to pull this off*…the .357 Bulldog is coming my way. 

    That’s it for me.  No more guns…honest.  I swear. 

    What?  Why are you all looking at me like that?  I’m not lying.  I’m done buying guns.  Quit laughing at me!

    *Only on a Tuesday though.  I ordered from Crosman.com, used ’20OFFTUESDAY’ promocode.  They throw in a box of Noslers or a sling also. (I took the Noslers).  All told with tax, shipping: $764

    Nice, congratulation on purchasing the “last” airgun you will ever, need.  I did that last year ( crazy beautiful HM1000) and only a life threatening issue caused me to let it go, naturally it has been replaced with a slightly different model airgun, may you keep yours forever or as long as you like anyway. 

    I have seen very little real world information posted on this rifle and look forward to a full review soon, and pictures please.

    I wish I could convince WAR or AAA to send me a Flex or a Slayer…as a PR/advertisement promotional gift.  I keep checking the mail but nothing yet. 😉

    On a serious note though, selling any airgun bigger than .177 in Washington is going to be an uphill battle.  It is illegal to hunt with airguns, except for a handful of unclassified (ie non-game) animals.  The regulations were written to ensure the ethical harvest of game animals.  I agree with that, but the regs were probably written decades ago and haven’t been revisited since then.  They explicitly list the methods acceptable for harvesting game animals.  Airguns are excluded.  No one will ask to modify this rule because no one has any of the more powerful airguns because we can’t use them to hunt game animals.  It’s a big, circular problem.  They need to get a groundswell of people asking for the rules to be changed, but that won’t happen unless people know about airguns that are capable of hunting small/big game. I suggest that AAA, WAR, and Crosman all send a .357 model airgun to all the Washington state members on the map as a advertisement so that they can show other people in the state what airguns can do now.

    Glad you took the plunge!! I keep thinking about a Flex or Slayer, but just can no longer bring myself to over spend on airguns. I might just take your lead and order one as well!!

    Nice! I still can’t stop thinkin about that Airbow. It would have really been cool if it would have converted to .357. If you were to buy both it would still be less expensive than the Verminator extreme!
    Oops, we arn’t going to buy anymore! LOL
    Happy shooting,

    Woooo congrats. I have to agree, Benjamin Bulldog has such a amazing price point. It also has a super aggressive/alien/railgun look to it. I am trying to save up for a slayer. Not sure if I want the rifled version or the bullpup. Im thinking bullpup since I just got a 300$ Hatsan QE at10 .25. And I gotta say, it is SUPER heavy. Not even back heavy, which is what most people want, its front heavy! Its extremely accurate though, so definitely worth it. On the topic of the legality standpoint of hunting with a big bore. I’d have to say it is super ethical as long as you give a headshot. Body shots on deer, if you only hit the lungs(which happens alot), will let them run 25-75 yards.

    What I think we need is more PCPs in stores like: Gander Mountain, Sports Academy, Bass Pro Shops, Walmart, and others to name a few. This will spread news to how amazing PCPs are and will make it more well known. Then someday it will make it to Washington. I’d at least hope Crossman will do it with their new 200$ PCP. 

    Heck if they do it with the Big Bore Benjamin Bulldog, then ;)

    Honestly, I don’t think having the guns in the stores is enough.  You need to get them out in the field so people can experience the guns.  If I were Crosman, I’d hire a couple college students and put them in an RV and send them around the country for the summer showing off the guns.  Send them to gun shows, shooting ranges etc.

    Once you have the Bulldog or any big bore you’ll go to wherever you need to shoot it! I’ve had a ball with mine. It draws a lot of attention at the local outdoor range. Even the powder burner people are impressed.
    This is my night time hog hunting setup.

    UPS is telling me it will arrive on Thursday.  I redirected the delivery to the UPS facility so I can pick it up.  Otherwise, they require a signature and there’ll be no one here to sign.
