Default Would I be an idiot to start a Go Fund Me page for an air rifle?

Just wondering.
I think its a silly idea.

Probably have better luck passing around a virtual “hat” here on CG since you are such a well liked member I imagine most would kick in a few bucks for fun and you would have an air rifle in no time OHOD!

Kind of dumb but at least not an out and out scam like I've seen perpetuated here.

You just need a good "hook." Something outlandish like how you live in California and everything else has been banned by the nanny-state.

Then include some line about how you are an old timer and that this air rifle will be used to "defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

Just maybe there will be enough people around the country that will forgo that Elvis commemorative plate or Snuggie in multicam and instead donate to your cause to get you the scratch required for an airgun.

If you don't try it I will...

I've been looking at the Benjamin rifles. They seem pretty good to me.

that's a good idea.

Is there anyone out there with a pellet rifle they are not using and would like to repurpose it to me?

When I saw the title of this thread, I thought of the same idea and, I might be able to help. Before offering one up, I need to know what type of air rifle are you looking for and what are your intended uses? The other catch would be that you'd have to be willing to pick it up in person.

I would be looking for a Benjamin NitroPiston and would use it in my backyard shooting targets. Sadly I cannot come to California as I live in Florida.

Don’t care what you do with a gfm but I will say I had a NP and it was a pos. It could barely hold a group at 10 yards. It pissed me off so bad one day I ended up tossing it around for a bit and threw it in the trash.

Do you have a recommendation for a different brand?

Well, I guess this question has been answered.

So what are you getting?

At the moment I'm thinking of an RWS 34. But that may change.

I am so thankful of olhunter for starting the gfp. He is awesome.
