I would be interested but I would need to get a pistol that I can shoot it with. The only one I own right now is more about power than accuracy. I'll take the silhouette target out to the garage later tonight, see how I do and get back to you.

I'm thinking I might be able to slip one of these into the budget with out too much resistance from the marital unit.

You can get the six inch version of the above pistol for 50ish. Decent 10 shot repeater.

I know, old thread. I'm in for 10M ap. The last 10 years hasn't been easy for those of us who like all of our Bill of Rights intact and I sort of drifted away from shooting. The Patriot Act was a huge let down. Anyway, I guess AP is a great way to get back into shooting without too much cost, considering the current economic situation. I still have a stack of 10M ap targets and a sleeve of Vogel Pallets.

Anyone else in LA interested in 10M ap?

thanks,

I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy myself a Crosman 1377C for Christmas.

I have space in my basement to set up a 10M range. I'd be up for a postal match in January some time. :)

I'm up for a postal match. I shoot a scaled 10 meter target at 25 feet. Happy to do 40 and 60 shot events. :smile:

Reviving an old thread, seems that there are more folks with air pistols these days- anyone interested? My max is 15 feet in the garage though!

Great idea. Count me in. Just received a Beeman P17. $40.00. Lots of excellent reviews. Very accurate. Easy to work on. Very hard to cock. Not for kids. Mounted a red dot and having fun.
