Re: Pellet rifles -who likes them ?
Rabbits will destroy a garden that's for sure.
James -that's a trick set-up -fast twist 22 w/ the 60gr's -i too would worry about ricochets w/ something moving heavy and slow.Be great on bigger stuff though.
Those RWS guns are very nice well worth the money -anything RWS is good stuff.
A past co-worker had an RWS 54 w/ the floating action [no spring recoil] -22cal side cocker -man it would drop crows out of the tallest trees -he was an excellent shot w/ it.
I was ignorant to modern pellet rifles and when he told me about it -i mentally rolled my eyes thinking -big whoop - a pellet rifle ,but after seeing him drop a few crows out of the job-site trailer window -i'm ignorant no more !
Dave - i saw you mention a pellet rifle on the other thread and been meaning to start a thread and that pushed me over the little edge.
I had a benji-20cal -real nice but too loud ,one thing amazing about them was when sighted in whether you shoot it w/ 3 pumps or 8 pumps it hits the same poi.
I shot a crow behind my house w/it and flew 20-30' and smacked into the sliding glass door of a new house ,i went up on my porch to get a better look and in the amount of time it took get there and turn around and look --the new home owner was looking at me and the bird --just smiled and waved.I got all paranoid and forgot to wave back -laugh-.
Just looked up the gun i have on pyramid air -gamo cfx $219 w/a scope -one stroke of the handle is like 10 pumps from the benj pump -way more fun .
I know two other people w/ them same gun/scope combo -shoot lights out -i can't say enough good things about them for the money..
Check the youtube vids -lotsa good crows.-Mike
AIPAC for president !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
