    First topic message reminder :

    honor system, make up a few different categories. you scan your target or take a pic with a measuring device included, and post them here.just a thought to pass the time, and have a bit of fun. if any one is interested, speak your mind. we could do pistol, springer, pcp, and big bore, and at different ranges, just to name a few. any other ideas welcomed!

    Well, guess what? The VA FINALLY got my chair lift for my electric chair!

    It's a whole new world out there for me now. My last entries were of pretty short range. I should be signing in as Squirrel, my user name but time is short and didn't want to log out and back in on this topic.

    I've sent two of my go-to AGs in for slight repairs to Will Piatt of Saddle Mountain Gun Smith----he is my highest recommendation, and all that know me know I feel this way: He's tried and true and a good friend as well as great costumer service.

    I've finally got one that will shoot up to 100 yds: or is supposed to. I haven't had the opertunity to get out of my house to a range that will let me test it out. But my Wolverine is *supposed* to get out that far.

    I'm not one for lobbing out to distances of 100 yards: The energy retained is not enough for a kill at that distance, say, with a Rain Storm or an Infinity. (Yep, I'm on the dark side) But forty yards with one of these is a good kill with consideration of what it is that I'm aiming to hit. So target and paper, to me, isn't all that this is all about (in regard to our friendly competition)

    Although I've made one, maybe two entries? Those are at distances I feel that I could make a kill because, after all, these are hunting AGs, to me, at least.

    But longhunter? and a couple of others here? They are GOOD, people. Shot placement is very critical in what you hunt and these guys can really, as you've already seen, raise the bar!

    But I'm working on it though!

    Taking me some time to get time and the equipment to get my old broke up body out there but out there I will get!

    Have fun my air gun brothers! Green wtih Envy

    glad to see things finally working out with the VA. been a while since i've been here, other than just lurking.
    got me two new guns, i've been working with. first is a hatsan/webley patriot.25 cal.. that thing is an absolute BEAST to get a handle on. first chance i get, i'm gonna gas ram it. that way, i get to keep the power and lose the torque. that heavy spring torques so hard, it jerks the gun out of your hands.
     second, i got a hatsan 125 sniper w/vortex gas ram, in .22 cal.. that gun is accurate. it came in the mail yesterday. took it to the range to get her broke in. after i figured out how it liked to be held, i managed a 30 shot group that was smaller than a dime at 25 yds..
    can't wait to see what she'll do at longer ranges.
    will keep you posted.
    later gators.
