Airgun silencers: What’s the big deal?

Airgun silencers that are removable and can be successfully used just one time on a firearm are considered to be firearms by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE).

Using a hand pump. Do they REALLY work?

I love hand pumps. They work great and are relatively easy to use even when you have to pump up to 3,000 psi. But, you have to know the right technique. I've seen strong, muscle-bound men decades younger than me who could not pump a gun up to 3,000 psi. Yet, my wife, Edith, who's as old as I am, can pump a gun to 3,000 psi. I showed her the technique, and we've never looked back! Read this article and watch the short video, and you'll also be able to pump up your guns.

Part 3 of a 3-part series that I wrote because many people don't know how to select, mount or properly use a scope. Part 1 is about scope terms and how to choose a scope. Part 2 shows you how to mount a scope (I also made a subsequent video on scope mounting). Part 3 gives you the info to quickly and easily sight-in your scope. You might find it interesting to know that sighting-in a scope is one of the most-asked questions I get. Don't make it harder than it is! Another scope-related article is, "What does AO mean?" Plus, there are some special issues for some guns and scope. I address those in this article about scope shift and barrel droop.
