The Benjamin marauder is undoubtably one of my favorite airguns. In this video we run the Benjamin marauder on CO2 instead of high pressure air. This set up is ideal for shooting indoors or in confined spaces such a small back yards.

AirgunWeb Announces OHAT
The past several years have taught me quite a bit about the mind of the average airgun consumer. They want something cheap, accurate and powerful. Unfortunately those three things don’t always go together. Manufacturers know this and play on the philosophy that “faster is better.” In the end, you get disappointed, unhappy consumers. I’ve devised a way, with a single test, to deduce the Small Game Hunting potential of a product and have distilled it down into very simple “Hunting Classes.” These classes translate 3 things: Hunting Accuracy, Impact Energy, and Range. With a single glance a consumer will know if, provided they can shoot, the product they are considering will do the job. The Hunting Classes demonstrate minimum requirements for easy identification. The full results will be cataloged and available, possibly through a subscription, through the .org branch of OHAT. (The volume of data collected during certification is pretty amazing) The actual testing will be done through the .com branch of OHAT.
There are two sites that you’ll want to take a look at:
- HuntingAccuracy.org is essentially the consumer reports of airguns. I have developed a standardized test that results in an Airgun “Hunting Class.” This class is derived from Hunting Accuracy, Energy (on target), and Range. Please visit the site to learn more.
- HuntingAccuracy.com is the “business” end of OHAT. Manufacturers and Vendors can contract with HuntingAccuracy.com to test products. These results will be available for marketing purposes under a license agreement. Please visit the site to learn more.

The Hatsan Mod 95 in .22 may be one of the best values for a hunting airgun on the market today. It hits with serious authority and is built like a tank. It is a bit heavier and takes a bit more upper body strength than other guns in it’s price range. I has a great trigger and beautiful stock.

The Remington Vantage was a great little rifle. Impressive really given the price point. This new version has been fitted with a Crosman Nitro Piston vs a metal spring and an upgraded scope as well. There are other changes as well.. like the workmanship on the stock and how the barrel joint is secured. Will this new version of the Vantage match the old? I guess we’ll find out.

The Gamo Varmint Hunter HP has been around for a while and I’m finally getting around to it. Of course the new model has some great upgrades but I’ll start with what we have in house. If I can get this one to shoot well, then we know the current model should be that much better.
Join me as I review the Gamo Varmint Hunter HP in .22 caliber.
