Texas Fish & GameOne of my fondest memories growing up was shooting my grandfather’s old Winchester .177 caliber air rifle at empty soda cans on my grandparent’s property. I’ll never forget those days. Many of us grew up using airguns for target practice and to learn the basic fundamentals of shooting. When I started exploring the world of modern air rifles and pistols for today’s hunting, I soon realized things were in a different league than they were back then.READ MORE >>

Big Bores for Young HuntersOCTOBER 2015: BIG BORES FOR YOUNG HUNTERS
by Luke Hunter for Airgun Hobbyist We enjoy many freedoms here in the United States that people in much of the world cannot experience. Having the freedom to teach a youngster to shoot and hunt is one of them!” ~ Luke Clayton I remember well the first time I shot a center fire rifle big enough to harvest big game. It was an old .257 Roberts that my uncle loaned me; I was eleven years old. I was scared to death of the noise and recoil. Although a relatively light caliber, I remember dreading the kick of the old rifle. This occurred over fifty years ago and I have no idea of what kind of groups I shot but I bet they would have been tighter if I had been shooting one of today’s modern big bore air rifles!

The airgun world is hot! The shortage of firearm ammunition (especially rimfire) over the past few years has boosted airguns into orbit, and one of the categories leading the growth is the big bores.Big bores are defined as guns with calibers greater than .25. They have existed since at least 1550, but until the 1990s they were seen as curiosities’ expensive to own and finicky to operate. That changed abruptly in the last decade of the 20th century when big bore airguns started pouring out of U.S. boutique shops in great numbers; and by the end of the decade, they started shipping from mainstream airgun producers.
