Do they make a blog GPS???
First let's look at the History of the blog. Like most great concepts this began as an accident, wanting to avoid typing my name in with every post when blogging I needed a blogger account, but while signing up for the account I also created a blog. Oops. It would sit for months unused like most of my power tools.
Speaking of history, Volvo's grandfather and socios in the new country...
Then as a light-humored joke, I decided to post it as an alternative to the PA site which had just undergone major change.
Suddenly I realized I had a blog. For better or worse I could actually share over 30 years of shooting air rifles. While some kids dream of playing professional football, I had always wanted to be Jack O'Connor. I often skipped eating at school to save my lunch money for the latest Outdoor Life magazine. Sure, blogging is a far cry from writing a real column about an African Safari, but not so different then yelling at the TV on a Sunday afternoon by many an armchair quarterback.
Based on a suggestion earlier this week new blogs will post on Saturday and Sunday and not on Thursday and Friday. I would like feedback when possible on the blog content also. Thanks, this could be as good as Girls Gone Wild.
My thoughts have been to inject less commonly available data and sample targets and more personal opinion. I know this goes against what a reviewer usually does, but that is the point. I don't think there is a need for more of the same. I also want to focus more on the drawbacks which are normally not talked about. More of a consumer guides approach if you will, but without an overload of the dry data that turns a juicy piece of meat into a dry pot roast. (yes, this link is a joke too)
Now this may change if I ever get reseller or manufacturer sponsorship, in which case I will love everything. But for the time being, I will be like a food critic with irritable bowel syndrome, no need to read between the lines here.
Also, I don't have a proof reader, so if you notice spelling or grammatical mistakes, please point them out in a separate comment so I can edit the blog and remove the comment once it is corrected.
If you want just one rifle, and hate PCP's - this is it - any guess?
Let’s face it, glowing reviews are all too common, and typically the reviewer does not actually live with the product for any great length of time. I am not faulting these guys for their bias; when your paycheck depends on it or you have real paid advertisements things are different and it is hard to be brutally honest.
Me, I've got no problem being brutal, unless I'm being paid to be nice. Example: The stock is nice, the lack of sanding and finish allowed me to scratch my poison ivy with it. Two thumbs up!
