  1. Go to the forest service office in Alpine (Descanso office) and they can show you maps where you can hunt in Cleveland...lots of places.
  2. https://www.cabelas.com/product/BENJAMIN-MARAUDER-SYNTHETIC/2520786.uts?slotId=1 I have one with the wood stock and have taken squirrels out to 105 yards...best to get out early before wind kicks up for the 100 yard shots...although, the .25 cal does well in wind.
  3. Use to post here a lot...but wife got ill and I have been her caregiver for past three years...she is doing fine now, but her physical therapy is on-going. She goes three times/week and soon I may renew my hunting license to get out again. My favorite air rifles are two RWS 850's both converted to HPA in .177 and .22. I also have a Marauder .25 which has been just super. So you have made a great choice in the Marauder.
  4. I only have two break barrel air rifles...Beeman R9 .20 cal and a Stoeger X20 Suppressor. The R9 cost $560 in 2008. Has been very reliable and accurate with no issues. The X20 I got last year for $129....other than a funky 5 lb trigger, it has been accurate and reliable with no issues... I would recommend reading up on air rifle reviews. There is good info on break barrels at Straight Shooters site...they provide in depth data on how various pellets perform in all their air rifles.. Check out the R7 and RWS 34 for starters...
  5. A friend of mine has a similar rifle from Crosman...still shooting good. I believe yours was sold through Big Five with a Centerpoint mounted.., As scopes go, I would get a cheap Leapers but make sure to use the stop pin into your scope rail.provided with your scope rings...Another tip is before you junk that original scope out check the adjustment at the "eye" end (Ocular lens),...you may have that out of focus...... Diopter adjustment provides additional focus adjustment to adapt the scope to your eyesight. ..there usually is a + - adjustment to compensate for your eyesight. Some have a locking ring...??? http://www.pyramydair.com/s/a/Leapers_UTG_3_9x32_AO_Rifle_Scope_Mil_Dot_Reticle_1_4_MOA_1_Tube_3_8_Rings/4627
  6. Thanks...got one but I'll be throwing it on largemouths....although if I ever get to the Colorado might see some stripers there. Our local lakes kick out some nice fish...
  7. Anyone here use this top water lure ???? I've thrown spooks on largemouth bass but was wondering about the Whopper Plopper how well it works..
  8. Some friends were golfing once when a guy stepped out of the brush a said to empty their pockets...one of my friends told another when the jerk gets close he will hit him with his nine iron....then another robber stepped out of the brush with a gun a said he heard that and told them to hand over wallets etc...the robbers left,and my friends finished their round ,then called police...the police were not happy that they did not report the crime right away...
  9. Have you tried a paint ball shop.??? They can fill your small tank with air ,but do not do scuba, I believe...I fill both my small tanks at velocity Paintball in San Diego.
  10. Might be exciting.....knowing you might get attacked.....but $450/day is a bit much including PCP rental... I spent nine days fishing for peacock bass in Brazil for $444/day including air fare/meals , accomodations, fishing gear, guide & boat..
  11. I found this on amazon...(just don't use the Winchester brand at Walmart, they break) https://www.amazon.com/ShootingTargets7-Metal-Targets/dp/B00DXG3FFK ..
  12. Think there is a guy in South Carolina that makes some for bigger caliber's...I'll look it up and post if I can find a link.
  13. You really get excellent feedback from where your hits impact this target. I use it all the time and particularly before going hunting so I know what my rifles are doing before getting out in the field.
  14. I got the quad target from http://steelplinkers.com/ and have had it for about 4 years . It can actually handle up to .22 cal rimfire...so it is well within any airgun impact energy... The center swjng target is one inch diameter...it really helps sharpen your aim..I generally shoot at it from 40 yards. The swing plates help you adjust for windage...at least that is what I practice for various wind conditions...I recommend also shooting offhand in each practice session...
  15. Springers can be hard on scopes...mine is doing well but I cinched it down pretty good and made sure the ring stop was set right....not sure, but think I have over 500 +shots thru it.. For $129 (on sale) , I'm very satistfied. Trigger is heavy, but I can live with that by pulling trigger and not releasing it right away...
  16. Got this one from my back door with my Stoeger X20 Suppressor. It shoots 18.1 gr JSB's at 680 FPS...the squirrel was 35 yards at top of hill where I have some targets set up.
  17. What else can you pellet rifle hunt in California? Nongame “varmint” hunting in California: DF&G regulations: Chapter 6. Nongame animals: S472. General provisions: “(a) The following nongame birds and mammals may be taken at any time of the year and in any number except as prohibited in Chapter 6: English sparrow, starling, coyote, weasels, skunks, opossum, moles and rodents (excluding tree and flying squirrels, and those listed as furbearers, endangered or threatened species).”
  18. Maybe a look in there using a bore scope,....but sounds like a burr causing pellet damage.The burr could be from rifling process.
  19. Sport Chalet going out of business now......
  20. Great pics !!!! Thanks for the link.
  21. One more to try...Pomona Airguns...
  22. Fun events. I was a member of CASA few years ago then later competed in bench rest matches with another club. The drive from El Cajon was a long one to the CASA events.. This was a match over in Arizona... b. CASA match..
  23. If....it fits a firearm barrel and reduces the report by 1 db, pack your bags for minimum 7 years in the federal pen. Also, note California Game hunting regs prohibit using silencers....
  24. Mostly 'airsoft' ....have not seen much in the way of adult airguns at Del Mar gun shows...
