I bought this pellet rifle for my birthday from an online gun auction. Its the Crosman model 99. It is a CO2 lever action .22 repeater. It's approximately 48 years old but functions perfectly. I only found one other video on YouTube regarding the Crosman 99 so I decided to share this video. Thanks for watching!

Daisy Powerline 990, made in the 1980's. It's production was abruptly discontinued after fatal incidences involving several young boys. It was deemed defective and Daisy pulled it of the market. Now, having owned one, I can see how bb's or pellets can get lodged in the breech and dislodge itself unexpectedly and become a hazard. This can be avoided with careful attention when operating and proper gun safety precautions (as with any air rifle). It's a pity it's production was stopped since it is a quality rifle (accurate, strong, duel fuel, duel ammo), just not intended to be used as a toy (again, as with any air rifle/bb gun)

Pocket Lantern/Flashlight: 1)Thorfire - Dynamo hand crank, low-high, Adapter charger 2)Suaoki - Solar, low-high-beacon, power bank, micro USB charger Update: I found out that the Thorfire can in fact act as a power bank and charge small devices like cell phones. It requires the right cable to do so, but once plugged into the device, using the hand crank will charge the phone.

To skip the intro talk and watch the shooting ...go to the 5 minute mark. The intro is for Crosman Model 1 as well as the Crosman 99 (Which I shoot in my other video). I wanted to redo the intro for the 99 becoz I didn't think the audio in the original intro was clear. Thanks for watching.

Slideshow of my hike around Crescent Lake in Southington, CT. I have to admit, I think about 4 pictures from Sessions Woods in Burlington, CT got mixed into this video. I believe they are the ones where the sun is shining through the trees. ◇ Music Provided by NonCopyrightedMusic Vesuhda & MrFanatiq - Nature https://youtu.be/JrlMhEbVpzQ

This is a brief overview of the Rothco Military Cargo bag with backpack straps. I was looking for something to travel with, within the US, when I'm visiting family or friends for a week or more. This bag seems to be good. I will have to see how it holds up over time.

Purchased this dry bag survival kit to see how good it is. I'm not fully convinced it's worth the price. I'm sure I could have made my own dry bag survival kit with items that I found more useful and probably already have. The first aid kit, emergency rations and water were definitely worth it. Time will tell if the dry bag hold up. I hope my video can help other decide if this kit is right for them. Certainly, it's better than having nothing at all.

Just a short video of my Hiking shoes. My older ones are by Ozark Trail, and the new ones are by Merrel. I bought the Merrels from REI and their service was excellent. Update: So I ended up donating my Ozark Trail hiking shoes to Goodwill a week after using the Merrels; They were just so comfortable to hike with, I knew I wouldn't need to use the Ozark Trails anymore. If you are considering buying a pair of beginner hiking shoes, I would recommend the Merrels.

I apologize for the audio in this video. I didn't expect the camera closer to me to pick up the audio so much weaker than the one in front. Hopefully it is still watchable. Taste test of 3 different brands of pemmican with Datrex emergency water pouch. Also using my Sheffield folding knife.

A video showing the Mossy oak camo on the stock and pump arm. I used camo Gorilla tape. (Not sure how the long term result will be, but for now, it feels and looks great) I used 550 paracord (fall camo) in a cobra braid to make the sling.

Shooting my QB78 Deluxe (.177) air gun. This is the most accurate airgun I have ever fired. The reason I missed a few shots towards the end was because the rifle was running low on CO2 (You can notice how, in the video, I am confused as to why I am missing my shots). With new CO2, this rifle is extremely accurate and a strong shooter.
