AM Saturday. Almost 50 degrees and the sun was shining. If this January in Indiana?
Shot my new Diana 56 springer air gun. Finished getting the scope on paper and then looked in the trash can for some reactive targets. Found this rattle paint can, it had not been punctured yet, so I laid it on the dirt embankment. Hit it from about 35 yards with a .22 pellet. Suddenly a fine mist of blue paint spread out into the air like a cloud. There was no wind so it gently drifted before falling to the ground. Pretty cool.

And here's the rifle.
I shoot everything from air guns to flintlocks, wheelguns, autoloaders and even those dreaded Assault Weapons. Love them all.

Nice. Do you hunt with it?

I don't hunt any more, but I never hunted with this sucker either. Well, unless you consider shooting wasps in the backyard as hunting.

Love the air rifles, I have a Beeman/HW R9. Very accurate.

Been thinking about something that I can shoot in my basement - 30ft. The basic air guns should meet that need.

I shoot a Daisy 777 in my basement when I get cabin fever.

My Diana 56 is a beast. It weighs close to 11 pounds, and lifting the rifle to cock it is a real workout. I fired approx 50 pellets through it yesterday. My back is sore today- btw- I found a tin of National air rifle pellets with a price tag from K mart of 46 cents. From back in the day.
The 56 has a rail system that tames the "thwang" from shooting springer air rifles. I also own an RWS 45, the 56 is much easier to shoot well.
