    I have heard good things about Theoben air guns, never handled one. Don't have an mental picture of what one looks like. There is a Theoben type trigger some people like, Benjamin builds marauders with Theoben triggers.

    I like airguns for less power, If I want to reach, a .22-250 AI with 1in8 twist and 75 grainers is ready to go. Big game? .35 Whelen will tip over anything roaming Montana. Back yard training? Varmit hunting in places starting to get built up?...

    Stayed home, but installed sling swivel studs in the matador, gave the stock a nice rubdown with boiled linseed oil. Installed Athlon Talos 4-14 BTR scope robbed off another gun. Pics or it didn't happen!

    Math in public can be so embarrassing. In #7 post above, I said 1 in 16 twist is 1.333 revolutions per foot of travel. Really it is .75 revolutions per foot of travel.

    In my experience, a good PCP holds pressure almost indefinitely. A CO-2 is always empty unless just filled. Have to admit, never had an good quality CO-2. But do have 1 starter grade PCP that does not hold air. Since making the leap and...

    Revolutions per second is a big number, revolutions per minute is a huge number. use what ever you like.

    Rotational velocity pulls bullets apart. Take your rifling twist, usually given in one revolution per inches and convert it to revolutions per foot. 1 in 8 = 1.5 1 in 12 =1 1 in 16 = 1.33333 Multiply by muzzle velocity to get revolutions...

    Rummaging through the scopes here, I found a bug buster 3-9x. mounted on the rifle and sighted on a target at 25 yards. Took six shots to bring the group from 9 minutes high and 6 minutes left to pretty darn close. Went out in the pasture shot...

    The price was a hurdle. But it saves me from buying a whole herd 100 dollar air guns that just lack something.

    The recent buzz of the new EDgun Leshiy II had me sucked in. The Leshiy II is a nice semi auto, but perusing the EDgun web site, the Matador just might be the EDgun for me. WARNING! sticker shock may be severe! Many PCP air rifles are tender....

    I found the video a little weird, because the voice is all first person. The fact the shooter is the kind of guy who stays up late to snipe critters at his feeder. Just did not seem to fit together as one person.

    I can almost agree, a powerful springer should be bigger than 17. But my springers, and even the powderburners have been neglected since I fell completely under the spell of the siren's song and got the compressor.
