    In that rehab class i learned about myplate.com, a site to help plan your meals towards success. We all know eating good leads to feeling good.

    That’s next on my list to build. On my property I have a straight lane about 40’ wide by 125 yards. On one end is a 10’ x 4’ concrete slab of a shed that had burned down. I’m gonna build something with drop down shooting doors, throw some lights at every 10’ down the lane, and try and build some targets enclosures at different yardages.

    Maybe  you should be audited for insider collusion. LOL!  Nice!

    Ha, Ha! Hopefully JSAR attends the Pacific West Airgun show again this year, and maybe they’ll have coffe cups that say Raptor on them.

    I just started attending a functional rehabilitation program this week. I was awarded 20 sessions. Tuesday thru Thursday, at 6 hours a day. It’s where they teach you to live with chronic pain. You do everything from exercise, cardio, yoga, tai chi, diet training, psychiatric sessions, you name it. Really a great program. 

    As far as the weight loss thing, it’s all a about the diet, as most of you probably know. Understand that any fad related diet will drop the pounds initially, but they are not geared for the long haul. I’ve been around this whole health thing for 40 years, watched so many of the fad diets fail. When it comes to a change in one’s diet, our generation is sorta like our kids generation, the “I want it now”, but, folks, it doesn’t work that way. It’s about a conscious decision to eat normal, but choose your foods wisely.

    theirs a new way of eating lifestyle out, and a movie about it called Game Changers. I suggest you watch it. It’ll blow your mind how today’s top athletes eat. 

    Also, have the mindset of “eat for function, not for taste”. Learn ways like leave the table wanting more, you’ll lose weight. Leave the table satisfied, you’ll maintain weight, and leave the table feeling gorged, and yes, you’ll be packing on the lbs.

    if you must have meat, eat from the animals that fly, run, and swim, not from the animals that stand around grazing and sleep all day. 

     

    If any any of you are serious about this weight change for 2020, maybe we ought to start a tread in the off topic session and share our journey. I think it would be fun, and hold us accountable.

     

    What say you?

    Just my measly input- anytime I decide to buy a pcp(very rare, in fact, I’m done, lol) I research if any type of barrel shroud clamp is available for that make and model, weather in machined aluminum or 3D print. Having said that, Tim Hill of hillairguns.com makes one for the Marauder platform and JSAR had made one for the FX Wildcat. 

    It was the positive results I had gotten off of Hills barrel shroud clamp that made me understand the effectiveness of shroud support. I could lean my Marauder up against a wall or tree and my POI would stay put.

    same with the Wildcat. It’s unfortunate the wildcat barrel shroud clamp isn’t manufactured anymore(hopefully temporary) but an alternative is to contact Pappy_Yosh on here by PM, as he makes a 3D printed version. 

    On top of all of these add ons, I make it a habit to add an o ring that exceeds the gap in between barrel shroud and air tube by just a hair, slipping it onto the air tube, to create a separation buffer so there is no possible way for the shroud to push downwards towards the tube should one decided to lean a rifle against a wall or have any form of barrel shroud droop due to installing an oversized moderator.

    I, too, recommend the wildcat. Very awesome platform. Contact Stony30 by PM. He had his on sale at a great price a couple of weeks ago, and not sure if it sold or not. Nothing wrong with buying used. Both my 30 and 25 Wildcats were purchased used.

    For me, it seems yardage wise the front focus is more accurate. Side focus scope numbers are always a bit off from the ranged yardage. Having said that, if you are really savvy at range estimation without the use of a range finder, I find the front focus faster than using the side focus. 

    I always orient my scope cap to pop up at 12:00, directly above the top of the scope, for my most used range of 40 yards. That means the scope caps hinge is at 12:00. I know from the orientation of the scope cap a twist left to 11:00 on the caps hinge puts the scope parallax adjustment at 50 yards and a twist to the right to 1:00 is really close to 30 yards.

     

    Side focus dialing I must be looking thru the scope to use clarity to get me my desired range(if I already know the range without the use of a rangefinder). I do not rely on the numbers to dial for range. 

     

    Spend a few hours at the local high school football field, and you’ll get range savvy yourself.

    That is correct. The reg itself is the same, but the MK1’s and the early MK2’s that we’re pre AMP reg use the small 15mm spacer, while the AMP reg models require the longer spacer.

    if you have an MK2 and are unsure if yours is pre AMP, the AMP style guns will have two holes in the air tube- one for AMP reg adjustment and a second hole 180 degrees on the other side with a black rubber ball stuck in it. If your MK2 has only one tiny hole, usually on the left side portion of the gun, then it is the old style , pre AMP reg

    Just a suggestion, don't over tighten the rings. You know the old saying… two objects can't occupy the same space at the same time.

    I can understand how placing a shim on top of the bottom ring saddle would raise the scope up. To "account" for the displaced volume _and still not crush the scope tube_ you would not tighten the cap all the way down. But there is no "give" when trying to adjust side to side. In a battle for room, the looser will be the tube. 

    I could be wrong. Please let us know how that works out.

    He’s putting the shims on the FX no limit mounts, where they clamp to the scope rail, not within the scope rings, or saddles, themselves. 

     

    Hey, BBB, by chance before you mounted the new scope, did you check to make sure it was optically centered? My Athlon Helos, brand new out of the box I needed to center optically myself, even though the instructions said they came centered from the factory.

     

    Brother, you gotta invest in this tool. Makes life easy.

    Did a search on google on folks that have had similar pcp compressors not building pressure, and one suggestion that I may check is the check valve. Any of you lightning or air Venturi owners know where the check valve is located?
