As I mentioned in some recent posts here, Facebook, YouTube, and a couple magazine articles, most of my hunting recently has been with PCP’s but this year I intended to get out more with my springers. Don’t get me wrong, I love my PCP’s and they will make up the bulk of my hunting gear. … Continue reading »

Sparrows (I think) in China

Several Years ago, almost twenty as I now think back, I was living in Tokyo. I had to make a trip over to China on short notice, and a scheduling error found me with free time and stumbling into a really unique airgunning experience.
