Airgun-centric forum along the lines of THR?

I apologize in advance, because I think I asked a similar question quite some time ago, and now can't find the thread, but as I recall I had not gotten any truly satisfying answers just yet anyhow.

As in the subject line: can anyone point to forums similar to THR in posting quality / courtesy which are about air rifles (pellet guns / BB guns / etc.) rather than actual firearms?

I am no more an expert in airguns than I am in any other kind of guns (even less, actually), but I find them interesting, and would like to learn more. (I have right now a couple of Crosman 1377 pistols and a Crosman rifle, model number escaping me, but certainly on the low end, and would like to one day get one of those nifty Baikal single-shot pistols. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baikal_IZH-46M <-- Hey, I just remembered, I started this entry ;)))

Any insight appreciated!

A lot of hot rodders here http://www.network54.com/Forum/275684/ . Not quite in the same league as THR but still lots of good info.

Acorn:

Thanks for that site! I'd encountered it several months back, but I think never bookmarked it, and thus forgotten about it. You're right that it's not up to THR standards, but IMO few online forums are.

It quickly led me to another danger to my wallet: http://www.americanairgunhunter.com/benji_discovery.html

A pre-charged pneumatic air rifle that looks practical for hand-pumping (because lower pressure than many) -- I need to have a basement range as soon as I can afford a basement ;)

This one is run by a retailer, but it's still pretty good.

This is a rimfire forum with an airgun section.

yeah, those guys at the crosman site are geniuses (mad geniuses). I started to get an itch for a air rifle that i could possible squirrel hunt with this fall, i read and read and read and got overwhelmed by information. I was at a Dick's store and this kid said I don't understand why you would want to spend $100+ for a air rifle when you can get a .22 for less.

I told him i can shoot an airrifle in my back yard and nobody gives a darn. He kinda got it after that.

This airgun forum leans towards hunting, but seeing as it is owned and moderated by a minister, I think it may be what your looking for.

This forum doesn't allow much crap, either, and is the most comprehensive forum on airguns on the web.
