Solon, OH -(Ammoland.com)- Pyramyd Air, the world's largest Internet airgun retailer, will host three of the world's most known airgun experts at the Pyramyd Air Cup this October: Jim Chapman, Tom Gaylord and Paul Capello.
Have questions, need airgunning advice or just want to shoot the breeze? Chapman, Gaylord and Capello will be on-hand to mingle with both competitors and spectators. There is over 150+ years of airgunning experience between these 3 men.
“Without women and men like Jim Chapman, Tom Gaylord and Paul Capello, I'm not sure where airgunning would be today. It's a great honor to have them at the Pyramyd Air Cup to share their experiences and knowledge with fellow airgunners,” stated Josh Ungier, Pyramyd Air's CEO.
Jim Chapman has traveled the world hunting with both airguns and firearms for most of his life. As his love for airguns progressed, he was introduced to more advanced airguns such as the high quality adult airguns from Europe, precharged pneumatic guns, and later the modern day big bore airguns. When hunting with big bores, that's where big game airgun hunting really kicked in! Jim has taken big game in every State where airguns are legal and conducted the first sanctioned big game airgun hunts in South Africa, returning for six safaris since.
Jim travels throughout the US and abroad to hunt with Airguns. Besides his hunting, review, and round table segments for American Airgunner, Jim the airgun columnist and authors feature articles for Predator Xtreme magazine, and authors feature articles for Fur-Fish-Game, Airgun Hobbyist magazines, and the UK based publication Airgun Shooter. He has appeared in several hunting DVD productions, and has been a guest on several nationally broadcasted radio programs.
Tom Gaylord, The Godfather of Airguns, has been an airgunner for over half a century. In the early 1990s, he started The Airgun Letter monthly newsletter and Airgun Revue, a magazine about collectible airguns. In 2002, Tom started Airgun Illustrated, which was the first American newsstand magazine about airguns. He also authored The Beeman R1 Supermagnum Air Rifle, a book about one of the most popular spring-piston rifles ever made. For three years, he was the technical director at AirForce Airguns.
Today, Tom writes about airguns and firearms for various websites and print publications, including Pyramyd Air, Airgun Academy and Shotgun News. He's also appeared on multiple seasons of American Airgunner, the only TV show devoted exclusively to airgunning.
Paul Capello is the creator and host of “Airgun Reporter,” an online video series. As a leading expert in the airgun sports and in video production, Paul has been working with airguns for the last 35 years and delighting viewers around the world with his unique style of informative entertainment since 2007.
His YouTube videos have over 11 million views from airgunners who are looking for the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about airguns. With each test, Paul discloses everything you need to know to make a buying decision…looks, function, accuracy, velocity, quality and more.
