Terrible timing, had a napping 2 yr old in my lap and the guy knocked on the door and woke her up. Signature required, and he had to scan my ID with an electronic gizmo to satisfy delivery requirements. No more nap after that. My Barra Schofield from the same vendor, on the same order, came in a different package and was just left on the porch. Something strange is happening there. Anyhoo…

    I got the package and when I opened it up I was immediately a bit underwhelmed. I have large hands and the grip is kinda similar to a beretta neos so it feels odd in the hand but not terribly awkward. I quickly got over that, but it is nice to know a good comparison when buying online.

    Variety of pellets at hand, I just grabbed the bulk pack of Crosman domed pellets that were on clearance. I clearly made a good choice on that selection. The package shows different velocities for 3, 6, and 10 pumps I believe, so I settled on 5 pumps as a first time run and ran with it. I shot it a dozen times, but only the first 6 were at the target. It was just superb accuracy. Shoots high from the factory, but not a big deal. It’s a 1 ragged hole gun at the 6 yard distance from the trampoline (table in this instance) to the fence where I put the target. My first couple shots I was getting used to the grip and called the shots right. They were, but only a slight amount. I was shooting rocks, and sticks, and having fun quickly. This gun makes me wish I had bought one 20 years ago.

    I completely wore out one as a teenager and have two or three now. I have a definite preference for the older ones with the separate cocking piece, which allows them to carried in a holster loaded and pumped, but uncocked.

    WARNING : MAY BE HABIT FORMING..... BTDT. Got one in June of 2020, shot it for awhile and decided to try an inexpensive red dot made by Daisy on it. Then decided to get the Crosman shoulder stock for it. After shooting it some more a Tasco red dot and a steel breech found their way into the picture. Eventually went back to iron sights by way of a Williams aperture sight, which is really nice. Late last year I got an itch for optics and put a Tasco 4x air gun scope on it and I think it will stay this way. Here's its current configuration: IMG_7396.JPG .... Lots of fun for not much money. 8 pumps is the most I ever put in it but even at that level it keeps me happy. My only complaint is that those tiny little .177 pellets don't register when going over my chronograph.

    I have 2 now-one scoped and one iron sights. 10.5 gr pellets shot great out of both of mine. I would suggest doing the 22 LR case trigger mod. Really simple to do and my 2 are now down to ounces. Unbelievable how well it works. I did a lot of long-range MOA and mil calcs using the iron sight system also like elmer keith. Matched to a ballistics program it works really well even as far out as 80 yds or so. IMO if you're into this sort of thing this is the best gun there is for this application.
