Inside the Business of Adult Airguns in the U.S. ... Early Competitors

I started a thread questioning why opinions of Dr. Robert Beeman are so polarized.
It seems that Beeman the man or Beeman the brand depending on
your perspective are either vilified or venerated - sometimes both.

And, what part Beeman Precision Airguns may have played in the demise
of Air Rifle Headquarters under Robert Law.

Casualty of Capitalist Competition ...
Or, What ?

The result has been a condensed history of the early days
of the adult airgun business in the U.S.
And to say the least, it has turned-out to be a very revealing look
into the inner-workings
and personnel relationships of some of the pioneers that had a stake
in the fledgling adult airgun enterprises of the time.

Full Circle: Air Rifle Headquarter ... Weihrauch Dealer - Again

Apparently, Air Rifle Headquarters is a Weihrauch dealer - once again.
In life ... it is a bit ironic ... how things have come full circle.
Anyone else note the Poetic Irony of J.M. & ARH becoming a Weihrauch Dealer ? View all

Blue Book of Air Guns

The alleged influence of Dr. Robert Beeman on the values stated in the Blue Book of Airguns

It's up to the Importer/Manufacturer
Quote:
Doc BB has influence over the Blue Book as it is really a compilation
of the Beeman collection and the efforts to insure the Collection value.
Reference:
BB of Airguns question. Why is Theoben so poorly represented in it?
