Issue #38: New stuff!
In honor of the new year, here are some new things you’ll like.
First, H&N pellets. They’ve been hard to get this year, but the shortage is over. We no longer have to depend on Beeman to import their branded H&N pellets, as Pyramyd Air is now importing them directly from the German factory. There are millions of H&N pellets in Pyramyd Air’s warehouse, ready to fill your orders.
A new gun I believe will be a big hit is the Air Venturi Bronco. This is an air rifle I’ve wanted to bring to market for quite some time. Basically, it’s an affordable Beeman R7. Priced at less than $130, it’s everything I want from an airgun…accurate, easy to cock, Western styling, compact. While I designed the gun with younger shooters in mind, I know that adults will want to shoot it, too. It’s smooth shooting characteristics make it a dead ringer for being the hit of 2010. Find out more about the Bronco in this month’s podcast.
I suppose 2010 may become known as the year that 10-meter came into its own. There are already millions of 10-meter shooters of all skill levels, but I think the number of shooters will grow exponentially with the introduction of new guns. In 2009, Crosman introduced the Challenger, which runs on only 2000 psi of air or CO2. The end of December, AirForce Airguns’ Edge rifle hit the shelves after a long wait. The wait was worth it, as this new gun takes the shooting world by storm. Listen in as I tell you more about these new rifles.
