Air Guns (BB and Pellet Guns)

The first gun that I owned was a bb gun - a Daisy pistol. I used to shoot it in the garage at home on Sutherland Drive in Lexington, Kentucky, circa 1978.

When I bought my Daisy BB pistol, my dad then bought a BB pistol and we would shoot them when we visited. It didn't last long, but it was fun while it lasted.

I later purchased a couple of different air rifles. I don't recall when I got the first one. It is a Daisy Powerline Model 856. A pump gun - not rifled. They have probably made a zillion of those over the years. The second was a Marksman 1799, "Brite Shot competition air rifle." I think I saw it on sale at Walmart and was impressed with the black plastic stock and fiber optic sights. Its a break barrel gun. It's not very powerful but it actually shoot pretty well.

I go in spurts shooting them. It is most fun when there is someone else to shoot with. My kids shot with me at different times. I can remember setting up pop cans in the front yard and shooting at them one summer. We did that for several days and I had a lot of fun.

In December 2011, I saw a good deal on a Crosman Optimus (break barrel .177 cal.) air rifle. I bought it and that renewed my interest in air rifles.

January 21, 2012 - I got a couple of Daisy air rifles from my dad. He picked them up off the street.

January 12, 2013 - I just took delivery of a new S&W 586 CO2 revolver. Very nice.
