    I live in Hillsboro, grew up in Wyoming and have lots of different guns and pistols (my wife says too many) but recently got into air rifles to thin the herd of grey diggers (squirrels) in my back yard. I shoot a .22 cal Crosman Nitro Venom (gas spring) with a red dot and what a tack driving little gun. The varmints don't stand a chance. I would be interested in meeting and shooting with other guys. I am retired so no problem there. I have a Hatsan 135 Vortex .22 ordered and will let you know how it performs. My name is Allen my email is jaxworks1@frontier.com

    Hi all. I just got back onboard NWFA and I'm still interested in air rifle get togethers. As Tom mentioned a couple months ago, I met up with him at his place in Jefferson and learned that I didn't know much about PCPs. I then bought a 22 cal single shot FDPCP in Feb. 2013. I subsequently visitedwith Tom again in May since then used it to harass the starlings in my back yard, and not much else, until now. Since hunting and fall salmon seasons are over, I plan to get back into the air rifle game and would like to meet up with others who share the idea.
    BTW, Hi Tom.

    I am still interested in a club of some kind to meet and discuss airguns and hopefully shoot them. The Hatsan 135 Vortex .22 I ordered was sent back. A beast to cock, very loud and a crappy stock finish. I now have a Benjamin Trail Nitro and nickel size groups are standard. Easy to cock, decent stock and very quiet. I will replace the trigger with a Charlie Da Tuna trigger soon as they are so sweet! I have Swiss Arms red dots on both rifles and love them. Very easy to sight in and very accurate. I replaced the stock silencer on the Benji with a TKO stage V muzzlebrake (they can't use the word silencer) and am amazed how silent it shoots.
    Later...Allen:)

    Is the pellet group still available? I have two RWS barrel type guns but would be interested in a PCP type. Is the guy in Jefferson still available?

    Yes, I'm still kicking. Still into airguns probably more than I should be. Still enjoy company. Regards, Tom

    That is good to know. The posts were getting old on here. I don't live too far away in SE Salem, maybe I could come by sometime?

    Give me a call at 5 4 1 9seven9 one7one7 sometime and we will make arrangements. I'm retired so have lots of free time. We can shoot 20 yards inside my shop or up to 100 yards out the door. Always playing with and working on guns also. Regards, Tom
