Authority to the Airgunning World

Where instigating argumentative debates and stepping on egos are the rule.

You have to love how posters claim that their wares are better than new. What nerve people have:

For Sale: LD in rare style. Only four made like this with the trial venom shop shroud. Ask Tim. Very nice LD, 2 CO2 tanks, paintball CO2 tranfer adaptor, RB grips, Millet 30 mm red dot in millet rimfire rings, carry case, Better than new and very accurate. 75% of what it all cost new. 545.00. Asking $545.00. Contact Jack Flynn (ad# 9732 submitted on 10/11/06 at 10:49:55)

I remember e-mailing this same guy years ago, and asking how the gun could be better than new. His response were along the lines of (He was being defensive too), "Well, when you fondle, tweak, and give the gun tender loving care after firing...". Stop right there. If you shoot the gun it is used. I don't care how many mods you've done, kept it on a special rug, preserved the wood and blueing with secret special lubes, etc. It is simply less than 100%. Get a Gun book if values and wake up to reality. Better yet, see a psychologist.

Hey Sonnysan, don't you have anything to say about the Tim at Mac1 versus Robert Beeman scandal happening on the yellow? Or the seemingly related fact that there is talk of a yellow book of airgun values? Surely you have some comments of how a Mac1 Frankenstein will be listed as being worth it's weight in precious gems or how a $10 bolt/nut/spring can turn a $99 refurb gun into a "viable FT rig" capable of competing with guns which cost more and will undoubtedly be listed as being worth anywhere between $250-1000.

As far as Mac 1, there is an old Shakespearian proverb that says, "methinks he doth protest too much."
