I have this friend who was showing interest in airguns. I loaned him my benji 392. He wasn't impressed, too hard to pump.
But yesterday, I brought by my modified 2250b, and he's hooked! I believe his exact words were: "I gotta get me one of these!" We were plinking at cans and such in his backyard, and he consistently hit small targets such as caps off bottles.
The only problem is crosman has decided to discontinue the 2250b, and as2250xt. But I believe one can be found, just have to look a little harder. Or maybe Roy over at mountainair can whip something up for him. But we have a new shooter, and he's definitely hooked!
Took him to our regularly scheduled FT match and loaned him my RWS/Hammerli 850 HPA. He did pretty well, too. I believe he's looking real hard at a Marauder now. Next project will be to get him into the PFT ranks
