Beeman Dual Cal - Barrel Change - Tighten down the barrel locking screw

Switching barrels in with the Beeman Dual Cal

The weather outside is hot and windy. When I say hot, I’m talking 108 to 110 degrees. If I could figure out a way to test and shoot airguns from my new swimming pool, I’d be golden. But since I can’t, I’m going to step away from Part 3 of the BSA GRT Lightning and get back to the Beeman Dual cal, this …

BSA GRT Lightning XL SE Air Rifle - Hardwood Stock

BSA GRT Lightning XL SE .22 – Part 1

Usually I start with the aesthetics and function of an airgun before getting into power and accuracy. But, since the BSA threw me a curve, I started with part 2 of the series. The point to take away from the last article is, never take things for granted. It’s easy to do. One of the critical points that …

BSA GRT Lightning XL SE Air Rifle Available in 0.177, 0.22 & 0.25 Caliber

BSA Lightning XL SE – Part 2

I’m still working through my series on the Beeman Dual Cal, but I want to take a short detour. I received a new rifle in the shop the other day. It was the long anticipated Benjamin Trail NP 2! I was all set to jump in and get to reviewing it, but then noticed that it had been damaged in shipping. So …

From the Mailbag – Nuisance Animal Control

Here’s a new article series that I hope will be helpful. I get a lot of emails with good questions; and here’s a pretty common one. I received an email from a fellow airgunner that is dealing with an aggressive stray domestic cat. They asked what would be a non-lethal means of dealing with its presence …

Beeman Dual Cal .177 Sample Target

Beeman Dual Caliber .177 Tests

I am now getting back to the Beeman Dual Cal article series after that short diversion on spring vs gas rams, etc. The reason for the short detour was another Beeman rifle that defied the odds. While having remained cocked in storage for over a year, it still shot just like the day it was put away. But, …

Spring installation back into a Hatsan Mod 85. There's several inches of preload.

Spring Fatigue – Fact or Fiction? Part 2

I ended Part 1 talking about preload tension. There are guns that use a great deal of preload tension with heavier duty springs; and there are guns that play it more “loosey goosey.” In my experience, the loosey goosey airguns tend wear out sooner than the more tightly wound models. So that’s where I’m …

Spring Fatigue – Fact or Fiction? Part 1

I promised some controversy didn’t I! I’m going to put all my cards on the table right up front. I was an early adopter of the Gas Ram / Nitro Piston technology. I have a special edition Gamo Whisper Camo .22 with a Nitro Piston upgrade, GRTIII trigger and awesome BSA Scope. I don’t think I’ll ever get …

Beeman RS2 Dual-Caliber Air Rifle Combo - feature image

Beeman RS2 Dual Caliber – Part 1

I have been meaning to write this review since October of 2007. That’s when I bought my first Beeman RS2 Dual Caliber Spring Airgun. In fact I bought it at the Roanoke Airgun Show where I had the pleasure of meeting Tom Gaylord for the first time. I’ve had that airgun around since then and while I had …

Hatsan 85 Sniper - Filling the Vortex Piston

Sometimes things just dont go the way we want

Wednesday was a beautiful day this week. The wind was under 20 mph for a change and the local range was open to the public from 8AM until Noon. While I’m a member and have the combination to the gate, I like to go during “open to the public” times. You never know who you may run into that’s never had …

Hastsan Mod 85 Sniper Vortex

The Hatsan 85 Sniper Vortex – Part 1

I’m still in a giant holding pattern as I wait for the weather to cooperate here in Lake Havasu. I want to get the AT 44 QE and the Synthetic Marauder out to the range for some head to head tests, but with 30+ MPH winds that’s just not practical. So, in the meantime I’ll take a look at some of the products …
