I have an old Crosman, an old Benjamin and an old Sheriden from when I was much younger. More recently I bought a BSA springer for plinking. I like the BSA because it is easty to cock and load so I can shoot more often.
Almost 40 years ago my brother in law had an old Benjamin. It had gotten a mass of pellets stuck in the barrel so he gave it to me. I disassembled it and tried to fix it but couldn't. Well about 10 years ago I discovered that there was someone in my area that was a repair depot for one of the manufacturers, so I took the gun to him and he cleared the barrel. I went back to my mother's house, found the boxes with the other parts in them, and put the gun back together. I boxed it up and gave it back to my brother in law for Christmas. Then a few years after that he gave me my old Benjamin back. It had been loaned to my grandfather to use on his farm and after his death I didn't know where the gun went. He tracked it down, had it repaired and gave it back to me.
