Snowy Ramble...

I still haven't found time to work on airguns, due to both work and our crazy weather here in the Northwest. I hope to get back to having fun as soon as the holiday rush is over!

Anyway, for more diversions. Popular Mechanics and Popular Science have put many back issues up on Google Books for free.
Typing in: Crosman Popular Mechanics yields this result.
Clicking on the first link and you get this. with those words you seek highlighted in yellow.
Then (I haven't found a way around this, but there may be something simpler) remove the highlighting by removing "&dq=crosman+popular+mechanics" from the URL which yields this.

There are old ads, articles and all sorts of wonderful stuff to waste your time. I particularly loved finding this...

You can also go to the advanced search page to make sure you only yield results within those magazines...there are all sorts of tricks I'll have to figure out. Anyway, you get the idea.

I also thought this picture was pretty cool (via one of the UK forums)
