    Dana I really enjoyed the video.  Awesome shooting as well. After this vid my mind is made up, when I can I will get one of these. If you get a chance I'd like you to shoot some slugs at 150 and 200, so we can see what it has. 

    I'm a old highpower across the course shooter and am porting those skills to air as I love the quiet shooting.  We will be adding a 200yd course here at the house and I just wonder if I'll get to use air or will I stay with my BSA Martini .

    I have no issues with mine, I have a 25 and a 30 cal donnys, the gun drives tacos with either.

    First off – win that the window was up !

    I taught on the PD range for years, Mirrors and door posts were common early on, and often score well still today:)  We had less issues rifle wise with the leverguns than we did AR platforms.  I have seen hoods and trunk decks claimed.  I have also used my outside voice many days to save a vehicle body shop time.  

    We had a run and gun course of fire for rifles that included the tower and a few bowling pins at 50 yards.  I have yelled "windowframe" more than once to prevent that from dying.  

    Sadly they don't shoot from the new tower, something about the electronics  bla bla bla…

    Good on you for fixing it:)

    Both this and the vlog were great reviews.  Thanks for explaining the company and the gun.  I like wood and steel so I’d really like one of these someday.  
    have a good one.

    I tried it on custom shop order and that was a no love moment. 

    But it worked fine on my stock 1701p.

    Looks like a really compact quiet gun with the mod on it.

    This was one of the best threads I’ve read in a while.  First, I’m a in my yard competitor, my traveling days are on hold for the house.  I agree with having rules set a year in advance, I think that is fair for all, and still develops technology.  The box idea is good, and works in many venues.  Keeping it real is important, we want the human factor to be one of the most important parts, after all we want to compete against each other, not sled for sled like the table top gun pictured above.  

    Thanks for the time.

    Here is a 30 yard card from my .25 marauder a few weeks ago.  1/2 at 50 is very doable.  I have a 1.43 at 100 with the same rifle and am just getting to know it.

    I’d say keep the RAW. Don’t get caught up in all this “flat shooting” BS. If you’re zero’d at 50 yards with the 50.1 JSB, your drop is about 13 inches at 100 yards. If you get a gun shooting the 44.75 JSBs at 950 FPS, your drop is 11 inches. Not really worth it now is it?

    I’ve been saying in here for years now that shooters get all excited about “flat shooters” when the reality is that no pellets shoot flat. And if you go higher than 950 FPS, you incur degraded wind performance, which is a proven FACT.  If you’re going to shoot slugs at much greater distances it’s a different calculus…

    I have to chime in here and say this is dead on.  As a old high power rifle shooter who transitioned from M-14’s to a rolling block BPCR 45/70 at the thousand the rainbow is true. You can shoot anything under rainbow once you learn where it is :)

    Great shooting.  

    I agree with the 4 shot groups comment most days :)  the 5th pellet is almost always antisocial  

    and lastly your making me think 30…

    The Burris Fastfire3 in 3 moa is a really nice dot, I bought one for dad for his 22 for action pistol, and then promptly put one on my Crosman 1701P and really like it.  At first I wasn’t happy with the tiny adjustment screw heads but got over it.

    In the late 90’s Ultradots ruled Camp Perrys Bullseye Nationals.  They built first class dots in the early days and I imagine they still may today. I still have one on a 45 BE gun.  I had not seen a 1 moa small pistol type reflex dot, perhaps I have been searching in the wrong lane.  Maybe I need to look harder, as recent as 5 years while teaching on the LE ranges I never thought I’d embrace the dots like I have.  I think at a few months from 60 it’s just easier to enjoy shooting with the dot than worry about holding my progressive lenses right for the sights.  

    Good luck, let us know what you come up with.

    Anyone have any luck with these in a .25 marauder?  Interested in the 100+ yard range.
