Cobra left w/o warning and people lost air guns and deposits. He would tell people to shoot out side door which overlooked a parking lot. I read in paper how some locals were getting the political clout to ban Air giuns entirely in Suffolk Cty and he was cited as the reason, and it made the Newsday when it happened. And neighbors to his back were just as ticked at him.
I went there once, they were very nice to me, and simply handed me a gun and can of pellets and they pointed at the door. That was when I realized how they ran the enterprize. They were pretty cool, but lousy neighbors and incurred the wrath of politicians. Price wise they were soso, other places were better, and seemed more knowlegable.
I may have a lead on a repair guy. I need to learn it as I have a number of oldies and once you learn a type you can fix most or all in that class, or by that maker. Trigger groups are another story. My Blue Streak and a non functioning Benji have superb triggers, my Nitro piston has more kerthunk if you hunt, and is pretty quiet actually, a 22 rim fire is not. I have others that are louder then a rim fire. But the trigger on the Trail NP is total skunk. I need to break down and buy a couple of triggers as they work in several iterations of Crosman and Gamo. I could do a bull at 100 yards with a 25 cal PCP and a huge scope. Amazing, no sound downrange and I believe 36+ ft pnds at target, with right ammo. There is no sound practically with your ear to the stock. For hunting use boatatil(ish) pellets, not commom, in 30 cal. at 1100 fps. The CF is very small so the velocity out is maintained throughto the wack at the terminus. Quite intriguing. If you back it down to 1000 fps, no sonic crack. Now at that point you are silent, and lethal, if bunnies and armadillo and things up to coyote size are very doable.
But I am off here. I just wanna have fun. I only shoot paper or Plastic Dinosaurs. If it stays dry I hope to be out east this week coming.
