Well, right now I've just come in for a mug of Joe after shooting the first twenty pistol pellets of the day. After the coffee has gone down some - it has no effect on me, BTW - I'll go back out and take twenty shots with the rifle.

Pistol - left-hand only.

Rifle - ten right and ten left.

Right now it's 35F here and a mite breezy with it.

Tomorrow I'll shoot a right-hand pistol some.

Why not just buy an up-rated airgun? Of course you can - in the USA there is no upper limit to the m/e of an airgun.

Ask Lewis and Clarke.

...and for what it's worth - and you can take this to the bank from an airgun manufacturer here in UK - Daystate - a dieseling springer is being subjected to at LEAST three times the normal stress of a gun that is being operated the way it was intended by the manufacturers.

Your money.
Good info.

Maybe im mistaken but that's dieseling on the opposite side of a springer. Im talking about dieseling in a straight valve bodied gun. Not sure if it makes a whole heap of difference but it seems to me it would basically be more like a traditional fire arm.

Youd probably have to tesla valve the tank or something to keep the pressure from resonating back into the tank and causing a spike.
It would def. Have MANY problems to overcome i could see.

But like you said might not make a hill 'o bean difference in the long run.

I just took this pic for somebody else on this forum [Yo, Dude], so I thought I'd share it around...

Top is a 1978-built Walther LP3 recoilless target pistol - looks like a club and shoots like a dream now that has been repaired for only the second time since it was new. Bottom, of course, is the Walther CP88 pellet pistol with the made-for-Walther red dot scope. It's actually VERY good, with nine settings for brightness. Double-action is quite sweet, too.

Any idea who made the RDS for Walther? and what years they were made? I have one from maybe 10 years ago. It is a decent little sight for what it is. I thinks its sitting on a MKII if IIRC and shot some decent enough groups with it to be impressed

Yup, we are eight hours ahead of you, sometimes nine...arriving in PDX is a real mitzvah after a 12 -14 hour trip, but going back to UK afterwards is a real PITA.

Usually associated with ammunition of all kinds, primers, percussion caps and airgun pellets, rather than putting their name on a budget RDS. It has never let me down though, since 1997, when I bought it in Chester.

I used to have one of their little brochures and catalogs for airguns when i was young. As well as Anschutz and Beeman. Man all the days i spent dreaming about those.
Those an Jr. Dragsters..
Was probably early to mid '90's
Not even sure if RWS makes airguns anymore. Sadly kind of fell out of airguns when i moved out of the woods. :(

Lately I have Been doing some pest control with my Hatsan flashpup .22. I am really amazed at the capabilities of this little bullpup. I have jsb 18.13 heavies going about 900fps with great accuracy. I have made some ridiculous shots with it. Yesterday I took out a starling at what I thought was about 80yds. Today I checked distance with a laser rangefinder and it was actually 89yds. It is all but routine at 50-60yds. Pigeon and starling crap is going to be way less prevalent around here at this rate. I wish I had bought a pcp gun long ago as I am definitely hooked. I have an airforce talonp carbine setup in .25 on order for those tougher critters and pigeons and crows at bad angles. I can’t wait to dial it in and put it through the paces. Air guns are a great way to stay sharp for hunting season.
 
I recently ordered a Benjamin 392s for critter control. It should be here this week. It wasn't in stock anywhere. I finally found an outfit in Arizona that had one in stock. Whatever the case, I'll probably knock my eye out with it. :p

google'd that 392s and that's a good lookin' shooter! not sure about going pump tho', as i'm already getting repetitive stress injury from a break-barrel. :s0029:

i'm excited for a new tune R9 coming in from flyingdragon. most i've ever spent for an airgun, it better be a better shot than i am.
(okay, maybe that's not a high enuff standard. ;) )
