    Sticky: I've always figured

    anyone who is distracted by others when they are shooting isn't paying enough attention to their own windflags. Any experienced shooter who can't focus on their own space should try to train them...

    Sticky: The most innovative thing I've seen to date

    It's kind of a shame there hasn't been more of it. I guess that's the real reason PS magazine ultimately failed; lack of innovation to report on.Like, how many combinations of PPC's can there be and...

    Who works on Air Arms rifles?

    I have an EV2 with a leak around the base of the air tank. I tried to take it apart but think it requires a special clamp to take the tank loose, at least I saw a Youtube in which a fellow used a...

    On the 99 threads

    I googled it and found a conversation in which a lad advised to peen the threads forward half way and then the front, backward. There was nothing to peen on these threads that I saw but I did tap...

    Unnecessary Tim

    There may be one

    on the fore end of this rifle. There is a metal piece held on with two screws that is keyed into the piece that butts against the action, that may be adjustable but it would leave a loose barrel on...

    What I ended up doing

    was greasing up the threads and using a small adjustable hook spanner I have to pull the barrel into the centering position. It required enough effort that I think the rifle will be good for a few...

    Bore specific cleaning plugs

    I got them from Midway I think. Made in Germany, VFG Weaponcare I think. I first saw them in use with .22 Rimfire stuff. A guy at a match was using them to clean with. It occurred to me they would be...

    Why some lots of bullets"Don't Shoot"
