    Hi there I’m Kiko from Madrid, Spain. I’ve been shooting airguns since my father gave me my first springer a Norica Mod. 61 which was very basic but still fuctional after more that 35 years. I began to become serious late in 2005 when I decided to jump into this outstanding world again. I first started buying some pretty afordable springers from Gamo and Cometa along with a couple of hand guns too. Nothing fancy. All the springers are gone now except for my first Norica Mod. 61 which I will never get rid off. In 2007 I purchased my first PCP, which was an FX Verminator MKI in .22 cal. I’ve learned a lot since then. I haven’t had the chance to shoot much because it is not that easy to shoot outdoors in my country. It is quite restrictive regarding the laws and no hunting is allowed. So its all about love for the airguns and its growing technologie than I’m still here reading learning and practising as much as I can. I’ve been following this forum since 2017 but this is my firts message… yeap it was about time. After following Ted in his firsts Youtube videos with the Edgun Matador .22 I fell in love with the regulated airguns and the bullpup design. I tryed hard to put my hands in one of those first Edgun Matadors but it was very difficult by that time to own one. And very expensive too. Finally in 2017 I got my first FX Impact both in .22 and .25 cal I was so delighted by this new technoligie that I couldn’t help it and I just bought it. I have made a giant leap forward since then. Now I have a new FX Impact X, an Edgun Leshiy and most recenlty a brand new Edgun Lelya in .22 cal which I was very lucky to win on a raffle organized Francisco Eizayaga dealer of Edgun Airguns in Spain. That has been the greatest Christmas present ever. I will start sharing with you some post very soon. Again, thank you for your time and contribution to this marvelous airgun world. 👋

    Hi my name is Bruce and I am from Atwater Cal. I have been using airguns mostly to do pesting for a friend on his dairy the last 3years. I now know what an addicting sport this is I have purchase 15 airguns in the last three years. Two from this forum in the last 3 months. I kinda went at this backwards also as I did not introduce myself before I started posting and asking questions. I appreciate all the help from members on the questions I have asked. Looking forward to many years learning from here and contributing g if I can.

    Aging powder burner here. Decided to get back to where it all began and rekindle the fun of shooting. Looks like this is going to be expensive.

    Hi, My name is Monte, live in Honolulu, HI, and found my way here researching the purchase of an air rifle. 

     

    My first "pellet gun" was a 60's Benjamin pump, soon followed by a Crosman MK I. Both remained actively used on a casual basis till the mid 80's.

     

    My main interest at the time was wingshooting and bigger game–mainly deer, pigs, and sheep. I started wingshooting with a 410 Sears Ted Williams break open single shot. My first big game rifle was a late 60's Sako 30-06.

     

    Nowadays I'm just looking to do some recreational target shooting at the range. A Benjamin w/ Lothar Walther bbl really excites the imagination–its bolt action reminds of the old Benjamin. Otoh I've mostly decided to settle for the simplicity of a springer, and hope to find the one rifle that will suit my needs.

    Hello AGN,

    My name is Joe. I live in NJ but, travel quite a lot around the country for work. I've been shooting airguns for about 10 years and really enjoy them! I've owned everything from Crosman to Daystate, FX to Benjamin. I consider myself an average shooter and enjoy taking a squirrel or bird from time to time. 

    I've been a long time fan of Airgun Nation and have been reading the threads and following the stories from way back. Even before Airgun Nation was formed, I was following stories and ideas being posted on the old yellow forum. 

    I was compelled to join this evening after reading a post about 2 major companies parting ways. I plan on presenting my opinion in that thread or another one related to the topic. However, I tend to have strong opinions. It's certainly not my intention to insult anyone, break any rules, or offend anyone. I just want to share my opinion from time to time when I feel compelled to do so. 

    In case you're wondering about the name & avatar. I just like that movie and happen to be listening to it while I sit here at the airport. The picture is the same logo that was on Pitt's shirt downstairs at Lou's Tavern. Sock it to me!

    Hello AGN,

           I'm Neil. I live in New Braunfels, TX. (Texas Hill Country). I'm 75 YO and love competition in ANYTHING. I'm a stand up paddle racer, Pickleball maniac (4-5 hours a day) 6 days a week, love to lift heavy weights 1 hour a day at our great gym in New Braunfels (Das Rec), AND now getting back into air guns. I currently shoot a Diana 45 that I bought in the 80's. I'm doing bench at 50M and having a great time. I'm looking to buy a PCP in .22 for the same reason. My hopes are to find a used Air Arms s510 or FX Dreamline  OR other quality rifle. I have 2 3000 PSI Scuba tanks. I'm a PADI and SSI Scuba Instructor so I could use them IF I don't get a compressor.

    Hi AGN.

    My name is Doug and I'm a chronic shooter with no end in sight.  I'm 45 with a wife and two kids and live outside of Pendleton, Orygun.  I've been a shooter my whole life.  Got into air rifles 10 years ago with a magnum springer.  My first PCP was a few years later.  I'm a tinkerer and fabricator so I make many parts in my small machine shop.  I got into 3-gun competition a few years ago and have done very well at that.  I love air rifles because of the ammo cost and minimal noise.  I shoot my air rifles hunting 90% of the time, with the remainder testing, plinking, occasionally holding FT shoots at my house.  

    Peace!

    Doug

    Hey Grover here live in West Michigan.   Been new to air guns since 2017 and still learning more and more about them.   I have been an avid high power & shotgun shooter for years.  Reload and have several custom rifles.   My favorite is my 6MM Daher a wildcat cartridge but a ton of fun to shoot.
