Hatsan BT65 Big Bore Airguns – .35 / 9mm

I’ve had the Hatsan Big Bore airguns in the shop for a little over a week. They’ve done a great job at taking a proven platform and adapting it for Big Bore use. I gave Hatsan USA a list some time back of what I would want in a Big Bore airgun from them and they’ve hit every item on my list. The BT65 …

From the Mailbag – .177 vs .22 for hunting

Heres another very typical question that comes up over and over. Since weve been talking about hunting and hunting airguns, it seems to be a good time to address it. The question is whether .177 is better than .22 for small game hunting. Most recently I received an email that was very well crafted …

Basic airgun Hunting Guidelines

So here’s the rub and it comes down to the difference of what “can” be done and what “should” be done. Can a 500 FPS airgun kill a squirrel?

As I mentioned in my previous article, I’ve been away from the office and out at our TX ranch. It affords me the wonderful opportunity to shoot just about whatever I want, whenever I want, as far as I want. That’s not something that I get to do back in Havasu unless I want to take a drive.

What to do when you get a new airgun – Part 3

Now that I’ve gotten through the break in period, it’s time to see where we are for velocity and consistency, and also accuracy. So it’s back to the chronograph to see if the break-in period has accomplished our desired goals. We need to see more shot to shot consistency, and a much lower extreme spread. …

What to do when you get your new airgun? – Part 2

There are some common mistakes made by new airgunners that cause them some real headaches as they first start out.

What to do when you get your new airgun? – Part 1

This is a very common question that I get all the time. What do you need to do when you get your new airgun? There are some who would say that you need to completely dismantle it and rebuild it.
