    Thank you, Michael! All I asked was about leaning or not leaning a PCP against the wall and it degraded to insults about me shooting dogs. I want to learn and hopefully contribute to this forum. Maybe some folks just don’t like women here.

    It had been my observation and experience that male dominated forums LOVE having a woman around. You should have no problem here; it seems that was just a misunderstanding.

    Hi Alli !

    I try to make the scope and the barrel touch the inside of the safe simultaneously. Especially my Marauder since it has such a long and
    sort of “flexible” barrel. I don’t worry about it as much with my Wildcat since it’s so short and much more rigid. Not sure if it even makes a difference, but that’s what I do.

    What the heck was that??? First three shots (when it arrived) were LOUD. Didn’t get to shoot my new AAS510 until yesterday (Saturday) and now…it’s quiet as a mouse. Even on full power I have no worries about sound. Thanks Pete (Airborne) for suggesting Neil Clauge. I hoped that I wouldn’t have to go through that trouble but he came to mind right away.

    Marksman3006, thanks for that picture above. Right now, she’s resting by the door with the scope gently and paddingly (is that a word?) against the wall.

    On low power, it hit about 8″ low at about 20 yards. And, I can see the pellet fly to the target. Still learning the Hawke scope and need to adjust the two-stage trigger but overall, I LIKE this gun. Have to build or jury rig a solid bench, though, as resting the stock on the back of a chair just doesn’t cut it.

    I still haven’t named her yet as only paper has been hit. Which brings to mind…does anyone else name their guns?

Those first few shots were dieseling. The sudden compressing of the oil or grease caused it to ignite (like a diesel engine does, without sparkplugs) and boost the velocity a few hundred FPS. –> sonic boom and super loud. It’s natural with a new spring gun, esp. if it hasn’t been cleaned.

    Smaug, thanks for that info about dieseling! Right now, it’s shooting quiet enough for where we live but I will check out Clauge or Hugget if I need to.

    Your power setting will make a big difference.  My Condor SS is nice and quiet until I push it beyond 45 fpe.  My Lonestar was the same, nice and quiet till I got it above about 16 fpe.  You may find the same is true of your S510.  When you get round to it, you really will enjoy an aftermarket LDC.

    if memory serves me. in 177 the s510 with the 10gr jsb shoots about 1150fps. and low is about 500. the sweet spots just about 1/4 turn for about 800 fps

    I keep mine on a cheapy Walmart shooting rest. I believe they are $20(ish) and are an attractive (in my opinion) way to store/show your rifle. 

    I do have a springer and have CERTAINLY left it propped up against the wall for a few days at a time with no ill effects.
