    Airgun Collector magazines 1,2 & 3 - free to download and keep!

    Well, folks, it's finally here. This is an e-magazine in PDF format, produced with contributions from some of the best known names in vintage airgun writing, our BBS Collectables regulars, plus some very knowledgeable north Americans who kindly agreed to donate their expertise.

    I chose to call it Airgun Collector rather than include the word "vintage" so as to reflect the fact that it covers some relatively modern classic airguns too.

    The spirit behind this mag is that it's free to anyone interested in reading about older airguns. All the contributors signed up to giving their time, photos, and expertise for nothing, so thanks should go to them for their generosity.

    I am not committing to co-ordinating another issue at this point, but if the appetite to supply interesting new material is out there, I will certainly consider it. I've enjoyed bringing it together and it's been a privilege to work with all the contributors.

    If you enjoy reading it, please pass it on, perhaps by emailing it to someone who wants a copy and is having difficulty downloading one, or by adding another file sharing site to the following ones (I know almost nothing about file sharing), hence keeping it available to the widest possible audience for as long as there is a demand. Please post information about it on as many airgun forums as you think may have people interested in reading it.

    Edit: The second issue is now ready to view or download at the websites below.

    Massive thanks go again to the contributors, whose donation of their time and expertise have made this collaborative effort possible.

    Enjoy!

    Edit: The third issue is now available to view! As before, huge thanks go to the contributors who have made it possible. I think you'll agree, as in the previous issues they have done a very fine job.

    Enjoy it and please pass it on to anyone who is having difficulty downloading it, now and in the future. My hope is that this and the other issues will always be freely available to view by future collectors, and with any luck readers in the future may be inspired to collect vintage airguns themselves.

    Thanks for taking the time and effort to compile this E-Magazine.
    I've downloaded it and will read it at leisure, but from what I've seen, there appear to be some very interesting articles by some well regarded airgun collectors and writers.
    Nice one Danny.

    Thank you Danny for your efforts on producing this magazine. I did attempt to write an article myself but failed miserably to come up with enough words. It shows that writing is an art and a skill that most of us don't possess. My hat off to all those who took the time to contribute.
    I look forward to having a good read.

    Pete.

    Nice one, Danny. Thread now made into a sticky, and I will leave it as a sticky until September.

    Magazine

    Just downloaded the magazine and it looks fantastic. Very many thanks to all who organised it and made contributions. This will give me hours of pleasure during the dark winter evenings!

    Danny/Garvin deserves a lot of praise for doing this. It's ok to contribute to something like this but actually producing it, chasing up all the folks that offered to contribute, getting the articles together, I suspect it's been a lot of work and thanks are in order!

    Thanks again Danny, much appreciated,

    Rob

    Hello Danny,

    Thanks again for co-ordinating this excellent magazine which would never have been possible without someone such as yourself committing to the great deaL of time and effort I know it takes to bring something like this together.

    Hope this is only the first many similar issues.

    Regards

    Brian

    collectors magazine

    Thanks for this exellent e-mag, if the articles in the paper mags were this good I might be tempted to start buying them again! It solved a question I've had for ages about the falke underlevers & the airsporter.

    WOW - what an excellent idea - looking forward to going through it from cover to cover!
    I've already noticed articles on the BSA Airsporter, Cadet Major and Webley Premier of which I am fortunate enough to have one of each.
    Many thanks to Danny/ Garvin and all the contributors - am now going to post a link over on the UBC
    ATVB,
    Adrian.
