Springer or PCP: What Airgun Platform is Right for You?

The world of airgunning has had many choices for a long time.  What has filtered into most shooters hands out of convenience and economic feasibility has been spring powered rifles.

Daylight Savings Time

For many of us who work a longer afternoon shift, we’ve been coming home in the dark for months now. Even as we approached spring, there were only precious few minutes of light left to do any chores outside and zero time for outdoor recreation. If there was any shooting to do, it had to wait to the weekend, in between all the other winter chores, activities, and weather that can work to divert your attention.

Ammo Size & Power

In any given caliber or type of projectile launching device, there are three basic variables, the shape of the projectile, the mass of the projectile, and the force of the launch. Changing any of these variables results in different performance based upon the variable altered.

Stuffing Magazines

Shooting CO2 powered BB pistols has never been more fun.  There are fantastic revolvers, double actionsingle action, blowback, and non-blowback style pistols available to suit your fancy.  Some of these are fairly easy to load.  Some, however, are a little harder to load than others.  In this blog entry, I’ll offer some insight on loading your magazines with as little hassle as possible.

10 Fundamentals of Break Barrel Air Gun Shooting

Break barrel air guns have an undeserved reputation for being finicky. The mechanics of the spring inside the frame create movement that can frustrate shooters who are new to the platform. That momentum shift, though, is easy enough to understand and doesn’t have to have a negative influence on accuracy, if you follow some simple steps.

Why Use The Most-Sold RWS Pellet?

When you spend a few years doing something, you develop a good understanding of what works and what doesn’t, what works best for certain uses, and what doesn’t. One of my previous roles in the Umarex USA family was in our Service Department. Airgun aficionados of all stripes called in to discuss iss...

The Best Way to Make Movies with Guns?

As an indie film maker with hardly a budget to speak of, I have found that if you want to record an action scene with guns, an airsoft gun is the best option.

Training with Umarex 1911s

Instead of jumping in like I normally would in a gun review, I’d like to begin this piece with the establishment of a basic premise. If you carry a 1911, you need to train with a 1911. This thought scares some away from the battle-tested single-action, but it doesn’t have to. Practice doesn’t have to be dangerous.
