5 Gift Ideas for Shooters That Can Be Handed Down

Unfortunately, we do live in an age of consumables. That phone you paid top dollar for two years ago? Hardly worth repairing today. This is true for refrigerators, phones, and cars, and can openers, coffee makers, and TVs. Does anything have enduring value anymore?

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.

5 Great Gift Ideas for the Gardener

Homeowners and gardeners often call or email us asking for recommendations for pest control for their homes and gardens.  Squirrels and Chipmunks are very cute on TV, but when they are gnawing through the walls of your house to winter in your attic or growing fat on the produce from your garden, they become a nuisance extraordinaire.  Here are some great options from our product line to take care of unwanted yard pests.

Octane Elite Air Rifle — Functional Upgrades Same Price

The Octane air rifle was a well-respected entry into the break-barrel air gun market. It brought solid performance at a price that anyone could afford. Yet some felt like some ergonomic options were sacrificed to get the price down to its $259 price point.

How does a Pre-Charged Pneumatic Air Gun Work?

The answer is simple, really and the answer is in the question. Pre-Charged Pneumatics (PCPs) are pre-charged. They’re ready to go when you pull the trigger. And they’re pneumatic, which is a polysyllabic word favored by mechanics that means air-powered.

Umarex Gauntlet Review

Umarex has shaken up the air gun world with the Gauntlet. Pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) air rifles have always worked on a sliding scale that tied price to performance. Devotees paid premiums for reliable performance. 

The Umarex Forge

While I was in love with the accuracy and ease of operation, I was frustrated by how fast the gun ran dry. I’d always wanted a gun that could fire indefinitely. Forever. I knew they existed, but I didn’t have one (which may have been a parenting decision that backfired terribly—I mean, look at me now).

The Umarex Top Six

Has there ever been a bb gun this fun? I don’t think so. I know full well that most kids can take any old bb gun and create their own fun, but this one has a built in giggle switch that allows the gun to shoot 6 round bursts.
