Airguns are complicated beasts. There’s a lot of engineering under the hood required not just to launch a pellet accurately and with sufficient power, but to do it over and over again with consistency. One of the significant breakthroughs of recent product offerings is regulated performance at an average Joe price point. Adding a regulator […]
We’re not above stealing someone else’s political slogan concept if it serves a noble purpose. Oh, and this rallying cry might be the first ever on which we can all agree. Ready? Hint: it’s related to airgun compressors. MAAA – Make Air Affordable Again If you can look past the fact that our new maxim […]
The Benjamin Traveler changed my life. OK, maybe not in nearly so dramatic a way as my Prancercize lessons or dry-aged Tofu ribeye steak and wheat grass diet, but even still, I’m a happy camper. You see, back in the day, I had to get my air cylinders filled at the nearest paintball center. I’ve […]
Bulldogs have a storied history even if they do look like they lost a game of chicken with a parked mail truck. According to Wikipedia, they’re “a muscular, hefty dog with a wrinkled face and a distinctive pushed-in nose.” That’s a much kinder way of describing that unfortunate postal vehicle accident, but I digress. Bulldogs were also associated with Winston Churchill’s heroic posturing back in the big war. Described by BBC, “to many, the Bulldog is a national icon, symbolising pluck and determination.” You know it’s a legit British quote because they spelled “symbolising” with an “s”.
A while back, I got my hands on a Benjamin Bulldog and its fraternal twin, the Benjamin Pioneer Airbow. While the Airbow is a nifty tool for hunting applications and perforating trees with arrows, the Bulldog has many practical applications too. While, like the Airbow, its looks are non-traditional, it’s got everything you’d expect in a big bore air rifle, even if it shares that flattened nose with our iconic English canine.
Imagine a sound exactly halfway between a resounding “thunk” and an authoritative “whack” – kind of like that of a White Ash Louisville Slugger meeting horsehide at the Home Run Derby. That’s the sound of a Benjamin Pioneer Airbow arrow striking (and impaling) a ¾-inch sheet of sturdy plywood. Why would we do that? In […]
