You will also want to take detailed notes of the factory settings on the gun and any changes you make in tuning it, easier to tune is also easier to get out of tune. Not that out of tune is awful but it will be less accurate, use more air and be louder. If you like to tinker that's probably the gun for you, different calibers, barrel liners and pellets should keep you entertained potentially forever. Or you could just leave it as is and shoot whatever it's set up for from the factory, probably one of the two weights of .30 JSB pellets and be happy that way too. Nice choice by the way.
I have several pellet and slug orders going or here already to test out from FX, JSB, and NSA. I'm also pretty sure after getting the responses from an air gun forum about the hand pump that it wont be needed, but I'd like to always have a back up plan.

Yes, I've been in contact with the gents from various clubs, but I'm not sure how I'd be able to make it out there during the week with a pretty demanding job and two kids at home. The times I do get away would more than likely be for ranch trips and more casual plinking on weekends.

The scope just arrived for the air rifle this morning, so I'm literally just waiting for the air rifle and I'll be up and running. I have the compressor, cleaning supplies, fancy new magazines, optics, and ammo. The anticipation is killing me.
The inconvenience of poor quality lingers long after the thrill of a good bargain.
