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 …

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 …

Gamo G2 Field Tests

Gamo G2 Whisper .22 Caliber – Field Trials

The weather cooperated with me and I took the G2 Whisper out to test the data that ChairGunPro provided in the previous article. The hypothesis is, that by optimizing the scope zero, I should be able to aim dead center on a 1″ kill zone and drop a target that’s say 10 yards to 35 yards. If this works, …

Gamo Whisper G2 .22 Caliber

Do you like to “Go Big or Go Home?”

So I’m in the middle of Part 2 of my tests with the new Gamo Whisper G2 and I get a phone call. Time passes and now I’ve got the topic for my next article, i.e. this one. Shooting the G2 has actually been a good diversion from the PCPs and the big springers that I normally shoot. It’s a medium powered …

Gamo G2 Shot Test with H&N FTT 10 yards & Open Sights

Is it me or is it my gun?

Alright everyone. Get your steeled toe boots on, this one might sting a little. More and more rimfire and center fire folks are finding out what we airgunners have known for years. Shooting airguns is a lot of fun and it’s great practice for next time you pull the trigger on your powder burner. But, …

Gamo Hunter Extreme Velocity Claimes on the Barrel.

FPS or FPE what’s the difference?

First of all, please forgive me if over the course of time, I tend to repeat myself here and there. When writing over 100 articles per year for this blog, it’s bound to happen! Also, there are going to be topics that simply warrant repetition, and this, in my opinion, is certainly one of them. 1650 …

.22 Cal pellet hole in the ceiling.

What do Airguns and Bio Hazards have in common?

I’ll give you all 3 guesses what this picture is and the first 2 don’t count. If you guessed a neat .22 cal hole in my garage ceiling you’d be correct. Let me tell you a short and hopefully humorous but important story.   It’s not if, it’s when… There was a guy that I knew that liked …
