First; let me say that I've always been a fan of what you can do with compressed air and a projectile. I think I was three when I got to shoot my dad's Benjamin pistol for the first time. I was given a .22 Crossman CO2 rifle when I was eight (and promptly did things I wasn't supposed to, and it spent the next four years in Dad's closet), and a Marksman target pistol when I was ten. From when I was 13, I still have my (twice rebuilt) 1377 Classic with the pistol grips and rifle stock. These and many more over the years have been great. About nine years ago, I very briefly met Dennis Quackenbush at a gunshow where he was showing his .30 caliber 'Outlaw'. There were pictures there of a feral hog that had been taken with the gun. At the time, $450 seemed a lot of money (to me) for an airgun, but the pictures just wouldn't leave my imagination. Ever since, I've been poring over the different big bore airguns. I've been so close to buying one of the Samyangs that I could taste it, but I'm just not convinced that the design is going to hold up over time. After years of either trying unsuccessfully, or missing the deadlines, I'm 'on the list' to get one of Mr. Quackenbush's guns. There are days where the pure strain of the wait seems like it is killing me. Other times, I'm not quite sure that I believe it. Does anyone local have experience shooting any of the big bores? Experience with the Samyang? Quackenbush? Have one I might meet up and play with? I look forward to your info.
