Scot Laughlin's Custom All Weather 2260

2260 with short crosman receiver atop a mini riser made from aluminum tube. Barrel is a 2200 soda straw
tensioned inside a titanium golf club shaft. Three screw mod to the trigger, bulk co2, SSP 250 rear cocking
striker assembly. Factory stock, reshaped, bedliner finish and stick on cheek piece. The idea was a weather
resistant light hunter for rainy days.
I've got a Cothran stainless receiver and gas tube waiting for me to get back to this one.

Crosman Marlin Cowboy in action

I just uploaded a video tohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnLlzI8xfiw that demonstrates the accuracy of the Crosman LAM 350 "Marlin Cowboy" alongside the Daisy 1938b "Red Ryder." Please have a look and leave a comment on youtube.

In a continuous and unedited clip, I go 6 for 6 shooting the Cowboy at a classic #2 pencil from 15 feet. Admittedly, they're not all destructive/direct hits. But, the pencil moves with every nick and is split twice in the 6 shot sequence.

I posted the video in response to a couple comments I read online in which the reviewer completely misses the target and/or shoots a poorly spread grouping, then says the gun has an accuracy problem. I saw or read about them shooting offhand, outdoors, in poor light, etc. and some even admit their eyes aren't that good anymore or they may have flaws in their marksmanship.

My thought was that pencil killing is more interesting than paper target groups, so maybe there'd be more views. And, since I did/do not have a nice rest handy and lever-action spring airguns would be slow to demonstrate on one anyway...I decided to shoot from a convenient position that is a tad more stable than offhand. I'm shooting from the kitchen counter to the laundry room in my house, leaning sideways into the counter with my elbows on it. I called it semi-supported.

Besides cans, golf balls on tees and pencils (my current favorite), what other objects do you plink by pellet or BB?
