Wouldn't you know it. I was waiting in the customer service line in Wal-Mart today, and decided to pump the air rifle a couple of times in preparation for demonstrating my reason for returning it. The damned thing held air! For the first goddamned time!

So, I brought it back home and it's still working. I'm not sure what the secret is, but it seems to like being held with the muzzle pointing down while pumping.

Also, my new modification of my bicycle trailer worked awesomely, at least while in Deming. I was able to jog from Wal-Mart to Peppers, pulling it one-handed behind me. I'll get some pictures or make a YouTube video as I have time. Gotta finish a RentACoder.com job first.
