    Sounds great!!!!

    ps... you might need to get your post count up so you can post pics here on the board. You can use the system Diesel has in place within the message board..... Diesel has a tutorial here:

    http://www.survivalmagazine.org/surv...re-PLEASE-READ

    or use photobucket, or similar service. You probably already know this... But I didn't want you to write 20 page killer article and then find that you can't post the pictures for it.

    I'm stoked!!! Can't wait to read more.

    Airguns 101 Seperating fact from fiction

    Hi guys, I think I found a name that sounds OK, it was harder than I thought. Just a trial run here before I get going full steam. Major storms today and cable is still out. But here is a rough outline where I think I will start. I am sure that everyone has seen the Gamo adds for their rifles that fire at 1600 fps. How many of you know that a pellet that goes faster than 1000 fps starts to "wobble" or become unstable. FPS means nothing when rating the power of a pellet rifle without knowing the weight of the pellet. We strive to fire the heavest pellets we can without breaking the 1000 fps. That is why you find larger callibers firing heavier pellets to get the most FPE (foot pounds of energy) possible. I will also go over the 3 types of airguns: Springers, CO2, & PCP and explain the advantages and disantavatges over each one. Did you realize that crossman has been building a modular series unit longer than the AR has been around? I will touch on some easy to build customs that start life as the 2240 pistol that can be bought new for $60. I hate to admitt it but I have a couple I will show you that I have about $500 in, bet I can make even some of you guys drool when you see how they turned out. The really cool thing is you can do it on a budget. I have pictures where people have made nice looking carbine stocks for these out of a 2 x 8 and with a $25 dollar barrel, some rubber tube from your aquarium air pump, and normal hand tools you can make a weekend project that looks and shoots very well. You can also make this same unit a 9mm, a 45, or a .50 cal that has the power of a 38. The posibilitys are endless. Their will be lots of pictures, and I will take 1 airgun and walk you through how it works, its limits and advantages every couple days. I will be jumping around a bit but will start out with some entry models that are very afordable, but also show you a couple others that could be used for self defence. I just sold a break down PCP rifle that fit in a backpack, had a 16 round mag, could fire all 3 of its mags on a single tank of air (that could be refilled with a hand pump) it had a little less power than a .22 long, but was completly silent. Sound like something that could be handy? Did I mention it had a 100yrd range (10 rounds in1/2") with a bipod. Let me know if you like the title, spent 45 min in a MRI machine today and that was the best I could think of, Airgunner

    Sorry to heart about the job loss. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

    As for your first article, I personally would rather see you start with fresh thread. That way it won't get blended with the more commercial .177's and .22's.
    We are a very visually driven bunch here, so if you can post some pics as well it would be awesome!

    Thanks for taking the time to educate us.

    Starting on first article, should I post it here or start a new thread?

    Hi Guys, I am going to start working on my first article today and will either post it tonight or tomorrow. The wife and daughter had a yard sale yesterday and I helped by babysitting the granddaughter. Unfortunatly I left my laptop at their house and doing this on a droid is too hard with my big fingers. Still have no idea how kids IM so fast with these things. Anyway I am wondering if I should start a new thread or keep going here. I think I will start with the basics and this will dispell a lot of myths. I am looking forward to this project, just had to give up my job because of this last MS attack 7 weeks ago, am starting a new treatment that has had good results in the trials. The the last few weeks I have kept busy going through all sorts of tests. I needed something to help keep me busy and doing a blog is somthing I think I will really enjoy. I had posted something like this last night but must have forgot to hit the save button. Went to look at it this morning and it wasn't here. Was falling asleep at the time and using this cell phone so just have to make sure I am more careful. Talk to you soon, Airgunner

    Hi guys, I do not want to sound like a know it all and get anyone ticked off at the new guy. But there is a lot of miss information out their. I have over 45 air rifles in my house right now and I can tell you that I go to compititions where guys are shooting at targets up to 75 yards away and have to put their round in a
    1/2" hole without hitting the edge (hitting the edge prevents the target from falling) and while I can't do it myself freehand anymore (I was diagnosed with MS in 02 and my left arm shakes now) I shoot benchrest and have no problems keeping 10 shot groups under 3/8" at 75 yrds most days. Have a couple rifles that will do that over 100yrds. And a custom big bore that easily will reach out over 200yrds. There are a lot of inexpensive rifles that you can buy for around 100 but they need some tinkering with to make them proform. If there is an interest I would be happy to post some articles on different airguns that would make great additions to any kit. My favorate pastime is shooting a match pistol in my living room during comertials that is able to hit baby aspirin at 33ft. When you can set up a range in an apt. or basement and shoot at about a penny a round is it any wonder why the national smallbore champ is a 14 yr old kid. I have friends that are into airguns deeper than I am who average 200-300 rounds every night. Any wonder that they can get 98 out of 100 bulls consistantly? These guys can shoot!

    Now you got me worried.. I am thining about buying a Beeman RS2 Dual-Caliber Air Rifle Combo. I will have to do more research now..

    Nitro Pistons are going to be your best bet unless you have years of experience firing a spring gun. Less recoil and virtually no torque make for a much more accurate rifle for less experienced shooters.

    Pellet guns that are not break barrel are more accurate because the barrel is stationary. Most break barrel guns also preform better if you hold them loose and pellet choice makes a big difference, I went through 6 typs of pellets before I found two that work great. I found that the beaman crow mags in the power point and the crossman premier in the domed heavy weight worked best. I have a crossman Tac 1 177 cal. and RWS 34P 22 cal. now and they are in the $200+ range but I purchased both of them used, $75 for the crossman and $150 for the RWS. The hot new guns are using the new nitro system by crossman, still a break barrel but they are not spring air so they make less noise. I am thinking of selling my two guns for 1 of these.

    I have a Gamo Whisper and like it alot. I brought it to a friends(he had just picked up a Beeman) and gave his Beeman to his son and picked up his own whisper the very next day. Very accurate, a little long, but it is much quieter. I shoot it in my basement at 30 ft with about 1/4" groups (in standing position). And thats with cheap lead pellets.
