Re: Any fellow Air Gunners?
I came across two Beeman "top line Olympyic" quality air rifles for sale many years ago, did not have the money. I waited a long time and finally ordered the last one of two left from Germany and bought a HP FWB .177, with every accessory offered, and about 10k assorted pellets. Had this super tuned five years after I owned it, then put it in storage.
Sold most of my guns after the cancer diagnosis. This had been for sale for about six years, one caller of interest, but no sale.
I used it to rid the animals the cats brought in the house, the occasional flying squirrel and such. Mostly, it set.
Then, I saw a hunting program last year, only using air rifles. Sort of got my interest up again, and got out the FWB. This was advertised as a survival rifle, very high velocity, and only 18 lb cocking force. Put a 3x, illuminated reticle scope, and this will drive tacks all day. Superb piece of work.
Good for at least 1 million rounds!
The .22 was still an option back then, but I wanted the higher velocity. Now that I am older, I would have appreciated the larger pellet, for ease of loading. Nonetheless, of all the guns I have owned, which have been many, this is one of the most accurate of any.
