Authority to the Airgunning World

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

Since this topic was banned on the yellow (The very reason this blog was created), I might as well continue it here. This guy is selling a Whiscombe model 70 in the classifieds:

Bend-me-over Whiscombe pricing

He does a good job hyping up this rifle, just like Beeman did in his catalogs. Just might borrow his copy in my Whiscombe ad (JW 80 S/N 001) for 10K if he is successful.

For some reason beyond my intellect, these types of rifles have an aura about them that commands outrageous pricing. I have two, and don't think they are that big of a deal.

With all the buzz with these rifles, maybe I should start worshiping the people who own them. I should be patting myself on the back for being in such an exclusive club.

Before you worship that tuner/guy you bought an airgun from think twice:

Semi-skilled labor market

Four out of the 25 worst jobs for 2010 fall under an airgun tuner.

24. Machine tool operators start at $22,000 and top out at $50,000
23. Drill press operators start at $21,000 and top out at $48,000
19. Machinists start at $22,000 and top out at $55,000
14. Sheet metal workers start at $24,000 and top out at $74,000

I never could understand why they are regarded in the highest on the forums.

Proof that it isn't the gun:

MAC1 smackdown

Tim shot with a USFT, and still couldn't outshoot a majority of the piston class. I remember he failed miserably at the worlds as well. Don't bother me with excuses either. Hard to push your products if you can't use them. Now we know he doesn't QA them guns before they go out. Someone has to shoot strait for that to happen.
