Santa came today!

Post by Ultravox »

The brown-clad Santa (the UPS guy) brought my Crosman 1377 today.

Pictures after I get it home this evening.

Now I need to make a pellet trap - I'm going to make one of these: http://www.babymd.net/aa_improved_silen ... t_trap.htm

Exciting! I can shoot in the basement over the winter now. Whee!

Here we go.

The rear sight was drifted all the way over to the right and it was shooting left, so I centered it up and it seems to shoot pretty much where I point it.

Time to build a pellet trap!

Gamo pellets are shit.

And I made a pellet trap from duct seal, good stuff, cheap, and fast. Silent too:

The crosman pellets seem to work well in that pistol.

Congrats! You got a Crossman Classic. Get it sighted in and pick a target thats downloadable to our printers. Then lets start a indoor short range, "pellet pistol Winter Fun Shoot".

I gota have a reason to get up in the morning.

I've had that same gun now a year and I absolutely love it. Those traps look great. Easy to make too. I'm right there with ya. Thanks for the idea.

The heavier the pellet, the longer it will last. I use the Crosman Premere hollow points.
