The only pre-requisite is that you have owned it for over a year.

Please post pics if you can!

For me, it would be my Crosman 180 in .22.
Why? Because it's one of the two things I have left from my Grandfather (R.I.P.).
I've had everything else for less than a year, except the Disco. [/IMG]

Which was in bad enough shape to be considered scrap material by some. I took her in a couple months ago and gave her a face lift.

My '82 rocker safety Sheridan pumper. Bought it new and it's still running on the factory seals.
Got a reseal kit for it that's collecting dust until it's needed.

My .177 Diana 34N. Over the years I've owned MANY different airguns, from cheap Chinese to German 10M Classics, but this one gun is as close as I've ever found to a do-all rifle. I can shoot it in the basement, or I can stretch its legs to 80 yds. On one fine and perfect day, I shot a 2.5" 6 shot group at 110 yds with this rifle. It has a Maccari GSI kit and an Apex seal, and best of all, its preferred pellet is cheap Walmart Crosman Hollowpoints. I swapped the epoxy-coated stock for a polymer Panther stock, and added a little weight to the butt. It wears a Millett 6-18X40AO in a BKL 260D mount. It cocks and shoots extremely smooth. I haven't chronied it in a couple of years, but last time I did, it was shooting a VERY consistent 880 fps. And I've shot it enough to know the trigger like an old friend. This gun feels to me like a comfortable pair of well-worn shoes.

Like I said, I have lots of different guns in lots of different niches, but if it came down to one to keep and foresake all others, this would be my choice.

I think we're all Bozos on this bus.

It just continues to impress me with it's build quality, that quirky two-shot pellet shuttle, a very flat shot string for a non-regulated PCP, accurate. It's a complete package. Fill to 2700 PSI and get 42 shots averaging over 28 FPE by the time pressure drops to 1800 PSI, and with a flat shot string to boot.

It is one of my cheapest rifles to shoot because I cast bullets for it, but I do for my 25 LBt's also, so it is a toss up.
