What are they pellet guns?
Yes, all three are Air Guns or pellet guns if you like. The rifle is an Air Arms Pro Sport and the Hand Guns are a Beeman P11 and a Weirauch HW75. Two springers and one pump so they don’t require CO2 or an air tank. Perfectly legal where I live to fire within the city limits or in my back yard. Depending where you live that may not be the case. As I said for those days when I feel like shooting something and cannot make it to the range.

Those airguns you have are pretty fine. I surely do like springers myself but never shot any high-ends like yours. I have an el Gamo .177 rifle that I got back in '75 for $24, though, and you can shoot the 'nads of a gnat with it.

Thank you sir. But it doesn’t matter what the cost only that the result is that you enjoy it. The only gun I owned back in the 70s was a BB Gun my father bought me and believe me I enjoyed the heck out that one. Spent many an hour in his backyard just firing that gun at a little tin foil pie plate.

I had a BB revolver that I sold, I like pellets better they're more accurate
The one I have is Co2 powered, it's a modified Crossman 2240, very accurate at 45-50 feet (which is all I need for the backyard)



Nickel size target from one side of the house (basement) to the other (about 43 feet)

I have a 10 yd pellet pistol range in my basement for no-range days. I use a Crosman 1377 ($60) and a Air Venturi V10 ($270.). Both are more accurate than I am. :smile5:

That is a nice Air Arms. They haven't made them like that in quite a while. I have an Air Arms 1989 22 call with the side lever. As they haven't made the model since 1989, I have had a very hard time finding parts. The seals are beginning to dry, so you hear the spring then it shoots. Any idea where I might be able to order seals? I cannot even order them from Air Arms UK themselves.

There was a guy at the gun club with a nice looking air rifle. It had a stock nicer than some powdered rifles have.

I'm a big fan of air guns. I've owned several brands but now have it down to just two. I have a RWS Diana model 34 in .22 cal. this is a 'springer' and my newest and meanest one is a Benjamin Marauder PCP in .25 cal. (photo). The PCP is incredibly accurate , with the scope I can stack pellets @ 17 yards, which is the limit of my basement range. It puts out 45 fpe and that's good for small game. I use it for rabbit control and one shot is all that's needed. It uses an 8 shot magazine so repeat shots are quick. No recoil, very little noise and a lot of fun. I zero @ 17 yds because my backyard limit is about 37 yds and that makes it zeroed at that distance as well.

You can "build" your own Crosman CO2 pistol at the Crosman Custom Shop. Just don't specify the red-dot sight (it's a piece of junk). Other than that, you get a custom gun at a very good price.

I got a $30. BSA red-dot for this. It fits the rail on this pistol, and works great. Although my score is usually 47/50, I managed to shoot a 50/50, hand-held, at 10 yds.

I also shoot air guns at home when I don't feel like going to the range or want to do some shooting dirt cheap. The Crosman 1377 multi pump is my favorite. $33 Wal-Mart rollback price a few years ago. I installed a steel breach and the longer stock. It's very accurate at 60 ft with only five pumps. Ten pumps a pellet goes through a soup can. The accuracy and power of this inexpensive gun amazes me whenever I shoot it. Hitting a coffee can at 100 ft consistently with the open sights is doable with 7-8 pumps.
