another toy from the 60s

Post  crankbndr on Sun Oct 30, 2016 9:45 am

Dad got me one of these when I was 8 or 9 years old, it blew away my cocking spring rifle. It was powerful (400fps) ,semi auto and very accurate.
I found this one NIB, also found one to use as a shooter, if anyone has one I would be interested in it for parts.

Nice looking B-B gun. Be careful where you use it these days. Neighbor calls police, they think it's real, etc.

Beautiful Pistol!!!!

Always loved the target pistol versions. Never cared for the ones that imitated revolvers and such.

I've got a Crosman 2240 'Bolt Action' single shot that is dead-on and a cheap way to get in some practice without alarming the subdivision across the valley...

Yes, you really need to be careful around here, probably not so bad up Kims way. Is is amazing how accurate they are for a smooth bore spitting a round bb.
The new bb guns I see you can't tell from the real deal, some claim over 1000fps, my daily carry is only 900 +- in 45acp. ( in the 9mm vs 45 argument I'm firmly in the 45 camp)
But a police officer would have to assume you were armed if you had a bb gun.

I always wanted to purchase one of the "semi-automatic" BB guns that were advertised in the back of comic books. They claim to shoot 3000 rounds a minute. They also took one full can of Freon to shoot 2000 rounds.  I figured I couldn't afford to waste that many BB's or buy that many cans of freon!  Woulda been fun for a Minute or two....

I have a Crosman like Mark's in working order and super accurate - 10 shots in minute-of-squirrel-head at 33'.
Also, a bit more primitive but a great technological advance in it's day:


I have modern stuff too. Smile

I like how you think. I like to start out with my Red hawk and then go to a 1911. After the .44 the .45 is a little less satisfying.

Not only would Australian authorities "think" it's real, they consider it real to the point of you being charged for being in possession of a firearm. Anything that looks like a firearm and functions in some way like a firearm is considered a firearm and must be registered and the user licensed as such.
I always dreamed of the Daisy BB gun because they were advertised on the backs of all our U.S. sourced comic books. At 15 I had saved enough money to buy myself a "slug gun", as they were called. .177 cal. which used lead slugs, shaped a little like a shuttlecock. Balogh will appreciate that it was a very nicely crafted "Jelly" from Hungary. Actually, I couldn't buy it but my dad had to. Eventually, following the infamous "Port Arthur Massacre" in Tasmania, I had to get a shooter's license and register it as a firearm to be able to keep it.
I know many of you Americans will not like it, but we haven't had a single massacre in decades following the government's hard line laws brought in after the killings. Taking automatic weapons out of the hands of everyone has had an enormous positive effect on gun crime.
We hear many reports of shootings from over there on the news, but out here, the laws have worked well. It was a small price to pay for many saved lives.

I have a Super Redhawk in .454 Casull. After six rounds of 400 grain bullets, shooting a .45 Colt is like shooting a weak .38spl. One cylinder of .454 is all my wrist can stand in one session.

The events in Australia and England before it were tragic no doubt, but for the most part they were isolated occurrences perpetrated by unbalanced individuals.  I doubt that similar shootings had ever been recorded previously in the two countries so the fact that repeat events have not occurred since is not outside of reason.  

Thankfully "The right to keep and bear arms" is written into our constitution.  Our goal is to prevent arms from falling into the hands of those not mentally stable enough to handle them without stepping on the rights of the individual.  A tall order.  Also it's well known that if firearms are banned in the USA only criminals will have them.  

My home state of New Hampshire's motto is "Live free or die", it's on every license plate.  I ascribe to that notion.

I have a Benjamin (Crossman) air rifle. It is a few years old now, the new "Nitro Piston" in .22 I also have an RWS 34 in .117 that is much older.

Both are accurate and deadly to small rodents, and even 'coons. The .22 has much more stopping power, probably due to the larger hole.

Typically I paper punch, or shoot cans on a stick, at 50 to 100 ft. Groups of less than an inch are easy with either.

Post  wha-tah-hey on Tue Nov 01, 2016 8:45 am

We call those "pellet guns", Rod, and many BB guns will shoot either style of projectile.
I've owned something over 300 different rifles, handguns and shotguns in my life, everything from .22 to .58 caliber, .410s to 12 gauge, seven different .44 Magnums and a .454 Cassull, antiques such as a S&W #2 .44 American, S&W #3 .44 Russian and .44-40, 2 original Remington .44 percussion revolvers and I've built several muzzleloading firearms while I currently own a dozen or so rifles, handguns and shotguns.
I'm happy to say that none of my firearms heave ever decided to killed someone while in my possession (and be assured they would have been dealt with most severely had they chosen to do so), though countless rabbits, squirrels, dove, and a number of deer have fed me and my family, thanks to them.
It's sad but true, "Guns don't kill people - people do". And for all the press coverage given to shootings here, more people die in bathtub falls or swimming pools each year than are victims of gun deaths.
No doubt a clever and deranged fellow could kill someone with a Golden Bee or Tee Dee if he chose to.

I tried to keep my mouth shut as I like, and respect OldEngienRod....but I strongly dispute this assertion and belief of his:

"We hear many reports of shootings from over there on the news, but out here, the laws have worked well. It was a small price to pay for many saved lives."

Rod
I believe your media...as is ours, has an agenda
I KNOW for a FACT there are NOW more bad GUYs with Guns then before the ban

In my mind there are some easy to figure logistical problems with a total gun(firearm) ban...and collection

There is absolutely zero way for a total ban on firearms to work in ANY scenario EXCEPT--- a full 100% house (and barn) to HOUSE search of every inch of a country...and even then, I can safely say that 100% collection is UNOBTAINABLE today.

I also fully expect that TOMORROW ( day or week after a collection) a new cache of firearms will be distributed (at now greatly inflated prices) to anyone who wants one

This is pure logic and common sense

Independent statistics of all the (weapons ban) countries and American states, with such bans, are almost universal in the reporting of MORE gun violence...easy to research for reliable sources...not media BS

Of course there are the outliers to this criminal activity set of statistics.... But just because some few areas ACTUALLY had a reduction or elimination (in a relatively SHORT) reporting period...is simply not empirical proof that elimination really worked... but is seems to be so ...for NOW

My own current county of residence has reported only one GUN murder in the last 35 years....don't be fooled... 23 murders have occurred in that same time span... Bats, Knives, bare hands, pick axe, car, poisson, pencil, electricity, garratt, and in one case a champaign bottle were the weapons

I leave the reader to ponder these notions and do their OWN independent research and make their own ADULT Decisions

Sorry Rod...not meaning to disrespect you in any way....

Just a vexsome topic with me

I'll also note the curious fact that following England's essentially total ban on private firearms ownership, after many, many decades of finding a nightstick sufficient the police now carry firearms.
Solely on account of terrorism?
As an American citizen that fight is also MY personal Constitutional responsibility should the occasion/need arise.
And I'm a happy camper - picked up my CC permit today. Thumbs Up
