    That last shot was, exactly as you described, BRUTAL.  Just about turned that ground squirrel inside out.  Well done!

    Good video and good info on the ATN.  Thinking about getting one…prairie dog footage would be awesome.

    Exactly.  I thought it was going to be geared towards a GgoPro 3,4, or 5.  Then, more recently I started hearing rumor that it was going to be GoPro 7…never anticipated it would be over $1k.  Not saying it isn't priced according to cost…but I have other options (ATN X-Sight for one) for half the price.

    I could see spending a couple hundred bucks on the mount and using my own GoPro…much beyond that and I'll go a different direction.

    Seeing side-shot camera setup with a GoPro…still not available on their website.

    Good shooting – some brutal hits on pigeons.

    Here in MN, the red squirrels will endlessly harass the gray squirrels.  I have two gray squirrels that have little or no tail left as a result – the reds will nip them off!

    Combine that with the fact that the red squirrels have chewed the corner of my lower wooden garage door to get inside, destroyed several outdoor furniture cushions, burrowed under my water feature fountain, and nested in some of my outdoor landscaping…they have a "shoot-on-sight" order against them.

    I will say, that my .25cal Cricket or .25cal Crown make a very satisfying mess out of them when they sit still long enough for me to pop them.  The last one was sitting on top of my Big Green Egg smoker/grill when I popped him.

    Shoot them.  Shoot them all.

    Do we need to ask for proof of life for @flynviking ?  Hasn't been back on this thread.  :)

    Seriously – that looks like WAY too much fun!  Good times and good company.

    The wood board backstop looks like something from a war torn country…I enjoyed watching it transform from relatively new looking to blood-splattered and full of pellet holes.  Same with the tree.  The scalloped landscape edging blocks look like little tombstones for the tree rats.

    Good slow motion, really enjoyable to watch!

    If a component is rated at 3,000 PSI, then that should be your safe working limit.  Theoretically, can it withstand pressures greater than the rating?  Almost assuredly…but is it worth the risk to find out?  Just like your 4,500 PSI tank is certified at pressures exceeding 4,500 PSI…I wouldn't consider putting 5,000 PSI in it on a regular working basis.

    I've said it before, high pressure air is nothing to be trifled with.  Be safe!

    I just wanted to let every one know I started my Alpha-Carette compressor up a couple of weeks ago and it seized up tight. The pump is froze solid. I purchased it about a year and half ago but it only has 15 hours on it. It has been run every month to build pressure and then purged to get all moisture out. I am currently working with Joe and will post when I hear back from him

    Ugh – that is not good!  I hope all goes well for you and I'll be watching for an update.

    Good luck!

    Good info – thank you!  Perhaps I should see how these perform in my .25cal Crown…the prairie dogs would not like me.  At all.

    Beautiful gun!  Some of those shots on the gnarly tree are really striking.

    On the subject of repair…4500 PSI is nothing to be trifled with.  I choose to tread very carefully.

    Can we please get back on the topic of "Which compressor and why?"  Thanks!
