    For information on sustainable CO2 sources see post #3 in this thread I know that most would say no CO2 for a survival pellet gun, and in most cases I agree. Though there is at least one possible exception to this in my opinion, the Crosman 1077, the reasons should become clear through this...

    So I know they're relatively new to the market, but I think I want one. Has anyone had personal experience with the new NP2 technology?

    I'm looking to purchase my first air rifle and I've narrowed it down to a few. Initially I looked at a ton of Benjamin and Crosman rifles but now I've found some Hatsan in the same price range and the air rifle community seems to favor Hatsan. Here's my lists and my concerns with each gun...

    Hello I saw some videos about people who had home made air rifles. But I had some questions, how does it actually work? Where is the air stored and how does it trigger the bullet? I've already checked some tutorials, but all videos used different mechanisms. Image: Video...

    Curious on how many have a .25 or bigger caliber air rifle in their collection of firearms? Some of them get pretty pricey but I've been toying with the idea of getting a .25 or larger as an alternate hunting rifle for smaller game and times when you want to be quiet, cannot discharge a real...

    This is pretty much it. I am wondering if the .22lr could sometimes be an overkill for rabbits and squirrels. Would a good .177 cal air rifle with a scope be adequate for small game hunting. Any one has any experience with both or at least just with .177 cal?

    The following YouTube video introduces the air rifle Lewis and Clark used on their famed expedition. The video's host states that the success of their mission, and the future of the U.S. were changed by the possession of this accurate, silent and rapid firing rifle. Several times on this...

    Hi y'all. First off, I'm not certain this is the proper place for my question, but it's the closest I could see. I have no experience with air rifles... very little anyway. My son (10 years old) and I shoot quite often and he is really good. We shoot the .22 mostly and he can handle some 7.62...

    How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.... Our youngest children go to the Juniors Club on Saturdays at our local Target Shooting Club. It's fun for them, and they are learning about shooting (as we older ones are doing on Monday nights). Ds3 sending target downrange: Dd2...

    SO you live in the suburbs, houses on both sides of yours, and because you never used your attached garage, only as of late do you find the garage and attic are home to a colony of giant rats. OK, let's say it's a friend's house, and she'd rather (have me) "pop" them than use glue traps and have...
