AIRGUN ODYSSEY

by Steve Hanson

Guest chapters by Ken Reeves and Larry Durham

First Edition, 2003

Whether on the game fields, in field target competition, or at a benchrest, students of the precision air rifle will find invaluable information here. A MUST-HAVE for your precision shooting library!

Airgun popularity has grown considerably during the past two decades. Despite the current popularity of airguns, airgun shooting, in general, is still considerably under-utilized. Airguns are simply more convenient and less costly to shoot than firearms. Additional practice with airguns leads to enhanced shooting skills---certainly a worthwhile progression, and one that the serious student of precision shooting has always been striving for. Accuracy (within range) can rival the best rimfire cartridges and firearms. In fact, the high-end world-class match air rifle is considered by many to be the most accurate shooting instrument in the world.

Here, Steve Hanson presents a volume devoted to one of his great shooting interests---today's precision air rifles like the Beeman. Air Arms TX200, Whiscombe, Crosman, RWS, and others. His approach to this topic is logically organized, extensively researched, and thoroughly tested in literally hundreds of hours in the game fields, in field target competition, and at a benchrest.

The evolution of today's precision air rifle is traced from the early (and recent) lever action B-B guns to the cost-in-four-figures target and hunting guns now available. The pros and cons of the airgun calibers are discussed in depth for both hunting and target applications. Airguns from foreign manufacturers are given in-depth review as are the popular airgun-specializing gunsmiths operating today.

Whether focusing on live quarry, field targets, or target competition---whatever the quest, shooting airguns can be very challenging at times, and yet without this very challenge the rewards would seem diminished and the contest would be less meaningful.
