Yeah sure, you seem to have that freeze thing down just fine
Dude, I live in New Jersey. It's like Beirut but you can understand the a$$holes yelling and shooting at you. The welcome packages that come with things like coupons to local supermarkets also come with a guidebook to making explosives out of common household materials.
The BSA I have would be familiar to those in the UK, a Model 12 in 22LR. It is know as a club or gallery rifle. I take a preveres pleasure in outshooting folks with rifles 90 years younger with scopes that cost more than my rifle with micrometer iron peep sites. If the wind is down, 10 shots into a 1/4" at 75 yards is nothing. It's what I call a "keeper" Don't even remember how many young kids, Boy and Cub scouts have learn basic rifle safety and earned their merit badge with this rifle. It was made in 1916 and still has many many more years left.
I used to have fun with my Feinwerkbau 601 air rifle back when I was a teenager. I couldn't quite put all the pellets through the same hole at 10m, so no Olympics for me. The rifle is still at my parents' house. Someday, I should retrieve it, get it tuned up, and plink some more. For me, the main advantage of air rifles is the convenience...easier to find a place to use it...easier to clean. Plus, these Feinwerkbau rifles were built to a wonderfully high standard.

Some of those old Beezers are quite collectable. Just read an article on US Co. Sheridan in a UK mag. They were taken over by Benjamin. Early Remington, Sheridan, Crosman and Benjamins fetch good money over here.
I have a modern CO2 Ratcatcher pistol but had nice wooden grips made for it. Great for plinking and shooting rats in the barn.
The small frame BSA Martini's used to available, but they are getting hard to find now. Prices on a good example are indeed going up. Most were imported from the UK when clubs got new rifles or closed down. Mine is a rather nice one, all original, blueing is still good going to plum now. Has the BSA sights as opposed to the Parker Hales.
I like guns puppys and sunsets.
Damn John, where the hell ya been.
Half of these look like 3D renderings of guns rather than photos they're so crisp...
At home or at work. Was on vacation for two weeks and all I did was paint the inside of the house. Boring but it had to be done, looks fantastic.
Well don't be a stranger, like seeing you around here, besides I think you would kind of like it.
Wow. Did you take those photos?
Welcome to ΩF
Yes sir. Nikon D3. in my dinning room.
The lighting in those shots is phenomenal. Nicely done.
Great pictures, only one 1911 platform, an old '52 Argentine. At least the frame and slide everything else is from Wilson combat. My favorite pistol.
Good solid 50 cal....
Also good for plinking and shooting rats in the barn.
Actually it's funny you mention......as about 6 years ago I was at my Grandmothers barn shooting up the rats. I used a (cressi sub star 55). I have some cool pics of the gun somewhere......
Found it. The star 55 works on air compression and can be filled up to an (80 bar pressure). When fired the release is violent and quite explosive. The spear itself is hardened and the tip takes a lot of punishment. I use it mostly when diving where sharks may be present. I'am wearing a rolex yacht master....long long lost ago in a philippines dive.
Cool. M2HB on a vehicle mount. What vehicle is it mounted on?
