    So I just got an email from airgun depot saying they don't do the plenum  upgrades you have to call fx to get it done. I brought my MK2 from them . My understanding from this post is that if you brought an MKII recently (June2019) you could  send it in to get and upgrade from the distributor.  So I sent an email inquiry and was told they don't  do it call fx . Has anyone else sent an inquiry and what was your response.

    I agree with GQ… can you imagine cleaning 79 rabbits or squirrels after hunting all day? I don't know about the state you live in, but most states have a bag limit on game during hunting season and the rest of the time you are strictly forbidden from taking most any other game. In the State of Florida where I live you are allowed to take certain non-native invasive species like hogs, all year long with no hunting license required. However, there is a law against the "wanton taking of wildlife."

    Which means you are walking a very fine line in this state to just go out and kill birds or other animals with your airgun just for the fun of killing things like people do in some places. In Everglades National Park and most other Wildlife Management Areas if you get caught with even a BB gun outside of hunting season you are going to jail and your boat, vehicle, and other gear will be confiscated. It is a well known fact here that our Florida Wildlife Officers take a damn dim view of people killing things just for the fun of it, and you had better have a damn good excuse if they catch you doing so. And helping Mother Nature rid the planet of something you consider a pest is not one of them!

    True Hunters hunt for food, eat what they kill, and have empathy for the animals whose lives they take for that purpose. Period.

    Nice sermon. I enjoy hunting and I don't eat crows, magpies, foxes or coyotes. I must be a bad man.

    I must be a really bad man too. 

    Wanton waste? NO. Price out pecans at local grocery and you may understand why I kill these bstds. 

    Hey you guys take it easy on Chuck  he's our friend besides he's right about some of us I used to love squirrels and birds grew fruit trees and hung feeders for them then I brought an FX IMPACT MK2 now I can't wait to shoot them out those very same feeders I have so much fun shooting  birds and squirrels  I barely shoot my targets anymore hell I caught myself drawing down on a woodpecker just last week took everything I had not to shoot him . I didn't grow up hunting I trapped pests and killed them  with no regard for their suffering  I didn't even know what DRT stood for or why it mattered until I joined this forum now I skin them clean them and at least feed them to my dog or little wildcat and although I'm having alot of fun killing them I'm learning to be more respectful and responsible about it thanks to guys like CHUCK keep preaching that Hunters gospel my friend

    Real talk ? That's it no vinegar needed I hate the taste of meat soaked in vinegar thought you had to soak them in vinegar after a gut shot that's why I feed the gut shots to my dog or little wild cat . You got any good recipes to go with that advice that don't contain  vinegar soaking

    Got my vortex  amg huey 1 moa dot on with a 3x magnifier there's no parallax with red dots used to have it on a keltec  ksg don't shoot it much but my impact gets shot at least twice a week still haven't brought a scope for it the red dot is perfect for back yard plinking and pest control 40 yards is the extent of my back yard range

    I was wondering the same thing the parallax only adjusts down to 50 yards so you'd have to be long range shooting

    I just bought one from here it arrived yesterday. Good quality and delivered by UPS. Only good if you fill yourself. Bigger ones are available from the same vendor.  https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33053567366.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.1e0b4c4diZcr8W  You can get it with your choice of valves but I found it cheaper to get the valve from another supplier.

    Yeah that's the same place I got my tank no DOT label though so you have to fill it yourself  and don't get  caught with it in back of your truck.

    Well hope your not getting wet air in your bottles condensate water is not like tap water it is pure and absorbs carbonic acid from the air  which is corrosive for aluminum which is the bladder in a carbon fiber tank if by chance you are not taking the necessary measures to insure you fill the tank with dry air then as the temperature drops corrosive water droplets will form in your bottle and cause pitting in the aluminum bladder  until eventually it fails a hydro test preferably or a fast fill unfortunately.

    Has the same thing happen to my Wildcat. I ended up getting a bigger fastener to replace the crappy stock FX one. No problems since. Something to keep an eye on for sure! 

    A bigger fastener please elaborate how to and where from

    Ok I usually aim between the eyes it's like a 30 yard shot so I figured headshot would take him out didn't think shot placement would be an issue also I use a vortex amg hu1 holographic sight so aiming for a specific head shot is ify  its basically aim for the head or aim for the body works great for squirrels but I don't want them running off mortally wounded and suffering for hours you think the heavier pellet will put him down DRT or do you need a specific shot placement regardless of fpe the 29gr piledriver is chronied @ 749

    Did you factor in a high pressure air dryer  or are you pushing wet air . They don't make refrigerated air dryers for high pressure air and the desiccant dryers Joe Broncato  sales are for predryed nitrogen  and solvents we use them in our labs I've  been producing high quality air for lab use for over 20 years so that's why I chose the booster its slot cheaper to dry low pressure air than high pressure air in the long run lots of guys will be sorry the filled scba tanks with wet air @ 300 bar it's a disaster waiting to  happen brother be careful
