What’s catching on faster than inflation and global instability? Pre-Charged Pneumatic airguns are! Okay, that may have been a terrible comparison to start out a blog on airguns but two things are for sure, 2021 has brought on some deep changes to the social fabric and PCP air rifles are flying off the shelves and into the hands of all kinds of airgun shooters. The reasons are plenty but can be summed up with some degree of accuracy by saying PCPs are fun to shoot, easy to shoot, and crazy accurate.
Of all the elements you need to take into consideration when using PCP air rifles, where you source your compressed air is the most critical, especially if you don’t know someone with a high-pressure air compressor. Not all air is created equal. When looking for a place to fill your external tanks for pre-charged pneumatic air rifles, understanding the questions to ask will help you find the right places to go and avoid frustration.
We are finally entering the warm summer months of the year, the months where getting outside for BBQs, fish-fry’s, and, of course, trigger time is made much more pleasurable by virtue of longer days and warmer temperatures. But these days it isn’t just BBQ attendees pulling the trigger on BB guns to knock over a tin can while waiting on the ribs. No, there is a whole new contingent of air gun shooters who have suddenly picked up an air gun as a training alternative to their centerfire pistols. Since Umarex has license agreements with firearm manufacturers like Beretta, Colt, GLOCK, HK, S&W, and Walther, our .177 and 6mm replicas are a natural fit for the firearm shooter looking to train with air.
