Guess that (at least partly) explains your "gasbag" alias, huh? Glad to hear I'm not the only Co2, and/or vintage-Crosman junkie still above ground.
If it's well worn, hopefully you got your moneys-worth out of that Manic Compressive book. I'm still thinking about and working on a book on air pistols (exclusively). Tend to make progress on it when the weather is too foul for shooting.
Hope you don't mind me soliciting your opinion- does a book titled 'Classic, Custom and Otherwise AWESOME AIR PISTOLS' pique your interest? Though I've never let a lack of target-audience affect my decisions to write an(other) airgun book, I'd value your opinion nevertheless.
