I was thinking that one day soon I could host a meet, greet and shoot pot luck BBQ at my house. This way anyone in East county or Southern California could stop by, bring something for the pot luck and bring what ever air gun they have. It's a good way to put a face to a name and get a chance to see, hold and shoot a lot of different air guns. Let me know if anyone would be interested in doing this or even helping set it up. I live in El Cajon by the way 619-672-0929

Sounds like a great idea. I hit you up a while back about doing some shooting/hunting together, I've just been so busy since my kids started school I haven't got out much lately. Let me know though, I'll drive down there. Also, If any of you guys want to get together at my spot in Oak Hills to do some long range shooting/hunting let me know too. Henry

I don't think anyone would want to plink with my $30 crossman :doh[1]:. Maybe I can convince my wife to take the kids to Seaworld to justify the 4 to 5 hour drive :doh[1]:.

True2ThySelf it doesn't matter what type of gun you have or if you even have a gun, it's all about meeting people, making friends and seeing, holding and shooting a bunch of different guns while eating some good food.

Sounds like a good time. Count me in unless my social coordinator has family plans setup for me. Scott, may ring you up next week if weather improves and see if your up for a hunt. Jeff

CBR, You have a great idea here. I'm very interested in making the drive down your way. I also work Saturdays but have Sundays and most weekdays free. What kind of set up help are you looking for?

Rofin I just need help picking a date that works for most people, getting a list together of who is coming and what there bringing and get the information out on all of the main air gun forums so we all can have a great time.

When this happens I will try to setup a car pool from the IE. I can probably take 3 - 6 depending on how much gear. Scott you should pick a day that works for you. You'll never find a date that works for everyone.

I'm interested. Just read about this today, November 29th. You'll just have to pick a date that works for you and the rest of us will try to make it. I'll send you $30. for pizza money. Pizza and sodas can work. I don't know how big a deal you want to make it. Bruce, I won't mention names, is deadly with his cast iron cookery and can make a mean chili but I really should not speak for others. I love camping out and meeting everyone. We did this once almost two years ago at the Rock House and it worked. Some guys are into archery and very good. Plan the way you'd like to have it and we'll show up as we can. Just let us know if you want money for food or whatever.

Exactly! Let's do it! I recently purchased a .22 Gamo predator pellet gun and I'm ready to go.

If all the air guns you have which one do you like the most and why? Which is most accurate? Which is most powerful? Which is most deadly and accurate?

Jim T I like something about each one but I think my.22 Rapid MKII is one of the best all around guns I have. My Air Ranger is the most powerful at 60fpe in .25cal

Would you mind posting info on the Rapid and the Ranger? I like both, how is the build quality of the Ranger vs the Rapid?Accuracy? Shot count? Loudness?

Hot Brass, both of my guns are tuned and have PAG custom shrouds. My .22 Rapid is shooting at 40 fpe with 18.1 JSB and my .25 Air Ranger is shooting JSB 25.4 at 60 fpe. The rapid has a better trigger, gets a higher shot count, easier to tune and is quieter. Both guns are perfect fit and finish, the Air Ranger has a better stock and I like the rear bolt it's butter smooth with out being able to bump it like the side bolt on the Rapid. Both are tac drivers with there LW barrels, the Rapid barrel is 19" and the Air ranger barrel is 17" AZ tuned my Rapid and Steve at PAG tuned my Air RangerThe Air Ranger specs stock are,Overall Length 40.5 inchesBarrel Length 17 inchesCalibers Available .177, .20, .22 and .25Weight 8.6 lbsSafety ManualAction Finish MatteAir Cylinder Capacity 500cc non-removable bottleThe Rapid specs stock are,* Bolt action pre-charged pneumatic* .177, .20, .22 and .25 caliberso Weight: 7.7lbs unscopedo Total Length: 40* 23 barrelo Weight: 7.9lbs unscopedo Total Length: 48* Vortex Mod* Recoilless

I can get around 48 out of the Rapid and maybe 30 out of the Ranger but I usually only go 20 before refilling the Ranger to keep it in the sweet spot.

My Air Ranger has a 500cc tank and my Rapid has a 400cc tank, if I put a 500cc tank on the Rapid I should be able to get at least 60 full power shots.
