Authority to the Airgunning World

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

Why wait for the .20 venom HW-97, when you can get the review now? As always, Jerry D.'s packages are the most antisipated ones to open, and this was no exception. Mike A. stock, and venomized parts throughout. Scope is elite 4-12x on BKL 260 (non-droop) mount. Initially the gun came with Beeman 5040 mounts with stainless steel screws, but that setup was crap. BTW, don't use SS screws for mounts. They will snap in half around 45 inch pounds! Anyway, Groups were shot with CP's (die #2) at 25 yards, five shot groups at 12x. How does it shoot? Well, it shoots like any other springer. No twang, and I don't have chrony #s. All I can say is it's a beauitiful gun in every respect. I just don't think it's worth the $$$ since it's a HW variant. You can get many of the features standard on a Theoben for a lot less money.

Your blog is starting to suck again. That was one lame boring- ass review. Get a little creative and make it worthwhile to tune in. Pasting a few pics doesn't cut it either. You're starting to remind me of those numbnuts that post pics of stock guns. As the Authority to the Airgunning World we expect better than the Amateur Hour. You aren't delivering.

Now what about all those Filarm related comments from the previous month? If you inwardly know you aren't capable of addressing the issue intelligently then at least say that you won't touch it for any number of reasons. That story would be a real blog., eg. interesting.

This crap about the variant venom HW97 is a no-shitter - we all know it's over-priced and Theoben is an equivalent. Tell us something new and interesting already.

I agree on that one alright. I was expecting something juicy after last month's tour de force expose. Instead we get this whacktard review. :(

Welllllllll, whoever that 'punk' is he does appear to be mighty annoyed on not getting his money back! Fact is some folks don't like getting ripped off and being made a fool of. Some folks even take it personal.

Sonnysan tain't the best. Sorry. Even Gaylord writes more interestin stuff lately.
