    Happy new years to you as well old semperfi. 1200 fps out of an air gun, that is cooking. That is also super sonic, does it make noise/crack like a 22 and what weight pellet?

    I would say just change the name of this one from ".22 Rimfire Forum" to "The Rimfire Forum". I don't think we need to separate it by caliber.

    I agree...somewhat.

    It sounds like non rimfires will be included. Bunching air power with rimfires doesn't sound like a great idea.

    So how about this, add one and change the name of one.

    "The Rimfire Forum" for all rimfire calibers.
    And a forum for pellet guns of all calibers.

    I own a few pellet guns, both .17 and .22 caliber so I would have an interest in a forum here.

    The .17 cal, as always, is at home in this forum but we are not or will we ever be an airgun forum.
