Hello, from Pittsburgh, PA

Hello, I am a new member coming from the airgun world for the last 8 years. I see you laughing . Many years ago I was into handguns a lot, belonged to a couple of ranges, and had a half dozen revolvers and semi-auto .... All Colt pythons and Colt competition .45's .... oh, and a Baretta .380 semi. This week I picked up a Kimber Micro 9, 9mm Desert Tan with Crimson Trace grips .... to start my journey over again. This week I'll pick up some assorted ammo, match-type ammo, and soon hit the ranges to find that "magic" ammo. Half to go out of town this week for work .... hate it when work interferes with my hobbies. If anyone reads this who owns my same Kimber, any info on what you feed her would be greatly appreciated .... and probably save me several hundred dollars. Just wanted to introduce myself, and say hey.

Airguns? Competition or the culling squirrels and rabbits type?

I shot Feinwerkbau .177 air guns and .22 rifles in competition (Olympic 3 position style) back in the day. They are great for honing one's basic skills.

Thanks for the comeback. That brand is still around to this day. I shot benchrest competition .22, Daystate Airwolf MCT. Not that I didn't pick off a squirrel or two and a bunch of nasty birds (starlings) if they got into my sights. Flies and bees off my target at 50 yards. The .223 will be a cool journey, I am looking forward to it. if it ever warms up, up here.

I saw a few FWB rifles strutting their stuff when I was watching the Paralympic Biathalon this weekend. They were outnumbered by Steyr LGBs though.
