Yeah, and luckily it's warranted for a whole year, and I'm sure parts are available and inexpensive. ::)

It does look like one  he(( of a pistol though.  160 shots per pump-stop is pretty impressive.  A 10 shot group-size probably needs a 1/4" micrometer to measure properly. Did you notice the grip extends to allll-most behind the bbl?!

Hey 1
That really sucks about your Pears, but your head count is gettin' up there

Last weekend, my Neighbor's Son called and asked me to hurry over with my Pellet Rifle
Seems a "Monster" had attacked his Mom
I get back there to fine Lori (our Neighbor) cowering in the corner of her Garden  and on the far side of the Garden is what looks to be a Huge Goffer
Turns out it's what's called a "Utah Pot Gut" or the Uintah Ground Squirrel
Not to scare it off, I dispatched it with one shot from about 35 yards....I love this Nitro Venom
I hear these "Big @$$ Goffers" get thick around here at times, and is probably what's been eatin' my Wife's Melon Plants
Well I guess these stupid things aren't afraid, and have been known to get rather aggressive toward people
But I don't know this personally, as I didn't get that close, and he wasn't around long enough to get pissed at me

" Great Green Globs of Goopy Green Gopher Guts.......rem. that one? ;D

My neighbor called the cops when a skunk showed no fear in the back yard next to a little metal shed.  He was worried about rabbies.
The cop came -with his glock-- and wanted to shoot DOWN on the skunk for safety.  He eased up on the corner of the shed roof and fired down.  A miss. Fired again a non-fatal hit.  Fired a third time and dispatched the stinky critter.
I know the cop and remind him occassionally.  They should have a pellet rifle on hand for dangerous encounters of the varmint kind. ;)

Yeah, and that fat SOB looked to have a lot of GUTS !

THREE SHOTS ? ? ? Sounds like it's time for someone to Requalify ! ! !
I'll bet that your Neighbor leaves (Dog or Cat) Food outside
Skunks LOVE Cat Food !
Did you know that the odds of a Skunk having Rabies is very low
They are NOT carriers, and can be Vaccinated against Rabies (we had a pet Skunk for several years)
They can contract Rabies just like any other Mammal
Chances are, they could have easily caught and release the thing without incident
They give off a ton of warning before they spray
If one was to take the time to learn their (body) "language", Skunks speak very clearly

We had lots of skunks around my old apartment, we would always stop and say hello, sweet little critters for the most part. I did encounter a big old one that wasn't happy about being spotted, he would turn and do his threat posture when I followed him for awhile but he never sprayed.

Yeah, their Front Paw stomp is kinda funny, but when they "Christmas Tree" their Tail, it's rather stunning
And with that, it's time to turn and POLITELY walk away ! ! !  :o

That's funny, I have a Steyr just like it sitting in my safe.  I haven't shot it since 1996 when I was shooting 10M Olympic Air Pistol as a Junior.

If you think that's wild, you should see my 25M Rapid Fire Pistol:
(http://www.pilkguns.com/tenp/wosp1.jpg)
That's a $2,000 five shot, ported .22 short with a 47g (1.7oz) trigger pull!  ...well it was once worth that much until they changed the rules of the event and it became an expensive range toy.   :(

Holy cow, very nice
Some expensive Pellet Pistols there
1.7 ounce Trigger Pull  ?
Can't imagine a Trigger at 1.0 pound, let alone one at 1/10th of a pound
A stiff breeze could set it off

WOW!  That rapid fire pistol looks like a "Bullpup" equivalent in pistol..  Cool pistol.

My old Bullseye pistol has a  1# trigger.  I can't "FEEL" 1.7 ozs at my age! :o
Den, got another squirrel today: #98,  headshot

The Styer LP1 is a classic.  Ever think about selling it?  Is it CO2 or PCP?  I have a single stroke pneumatic "Izzy" that has a great trigger and it is intrinsically more accurate than me, but some day, I would like to own an Olympic Match grade PCP, at least for a while.  One thing about them, you can shoot them at 10 meters indoors (like from the hallway into the guest bedroom upstairs) and get in a range session every evening without leaving home.  Makes one's pistol skills improve dramatically, in my experience.

I had never given it a though until now...  Why don't you send me a PM.
Is it CO2 or PCP?
It's CO2.  I bought a CO2 cylinder a few years ago and took it to the range just for giggles and it still shoots pretty great.  The last time I competed with it was '96.

I just added an Izzy IZH-46 to my collection and wow it is a fantastic pistol.
I now shoot it more than anything else I own, the luxury of being able to shoot in your back yard.
Best practice tool I have.

Actually, I've have been shooting my Crosman 1377/99 Carbine a lot
For what it is, it IS very accurate
Have taken 3 Squirrels in the last week or so with this lil honey:

I never even saw this sub forum - didn't realize there were other airgun nuts here. Like DenStinett, I have squirrel issues. :) I built this PCP from a $49.00 Crosman 2240 a couple years back. Uses a HiPac air tube in place of C02 and I fill it from a scuba tank. I get 10 shots in the plateau with a 2500psi fill and averages about 690fps with 18gr pellets. The only thing left of the original 2240 is the tube below the riser block.

It has a Marauder trigger/grip assembly (I wish I could get triggers like that on my CZ), custom grips, Green Mountain 12" barrel, Disco valve, a power adjuster from someone I can't remember the name of now, riser from someone else whose name escapes me, steel breech from Crosman and a cheap 2-7x NCStar scope with the parallax adjusted to 25 yards. There's no AO so it's a manual reset and lock thing and makes it usable down to 10 yards.

I use .45 holes in targets for bullseyes and at 20 yards, the holes stay the same size. It's the most accurate pistol I own. :)

The first year I had it, I cleaned out 39 ground squirrels that were literally undermining the foundation of my house - no joke. And I topped that off with another 25 Norway rats the size of small Possums. No love lost there.

My longest one-shot kill was 54 yards (lasered). Right down the ear canal everytime. I take most of my shots from a rear shooting bag on my kitchen window sill. I know, great white hunter right? :)  The suppressor means they have no idea where it's coming from. It just lets out a little pffft. I built a carbine using the same basic components on a Crosman 2250 but it's got a Simmons 6.5-20x scope. It's not as accurate as the pistol.

Thanks Den, it was a lot of fun learning about how these work. The pistol is kind of a Franken-gun, but it started looking better and better as I discovered how well it shot.  I only see about a half dozen squirrels around the house nowadays and they're VERY nervous rodents. :)

I have a buddy that's gone completely airgun nuts and he's got a really nice 5000psi pump for refilling my scuba tank. Easy to refill and everytime I go over there he's got something new. His latest purchase was a .70 caliber monster that shoots round balls. He only gets 2-3 shots per 4500psi fill but he's getting around 1000 ft/lbs with those big lead balls. Makes my paltry 19fpe seem laughable.

Airguns have come a long way.

Here is a pair of Crosman's. top one is a modded .177 with a walther barrel and a real tack driver. bottom one is a mix of parts in .22. both have power adjusters so I can get 800 fps out of them. you can get alot of stuff out of UK for these crosman's. both gun's have steel receiver's and other accesories. just a couple little toys(http://i62.tinypic.com/2hfi6j6.jpg)
