    “airtraffic”
    I’m sorry to have insulted whatever intelligence you believe you have but Fair is Fair.
    ​Good Luck to you, Mr. Rat.
     

    
HMMMM………  I was trying to have a little fun and defend a fellow air gunners honor. Not to cause problems, but it seems we might have one now.

    I could sit here and spout off my accomplishments or brag about my career in Intelligence. But I’m gonna just drop it. I feel like if i started down that road of trash talking i would just be an Internet Troll like you.

    So cturek, I’ll take that offer of the virtual Hi-Five!  YAWP!!!!!

    I’m happy for you and for all of us, and thankful that AGD is giving us this awesome opportunity.
    I tried to go out again today and try for the 175 and 200 but the scope is trashed, hopefully it will be covered under warranty.

    “airtraffic” But, how do we know that you didn’t rig a spring loaded base that the Ball was placed on and covered with dirt to hide the spring mechanism activated by a electronic switch?
    . It would not that hard to rig it, as everything can be hidden under a couple inches of dirt, and the ball could be pre-nicked with a punch of some sort!,

     

    
Now why didn’t i think of that!!!! I could have rigged up a Kanooter Valve with a muffler bearing or just have someone behind a tree to shoot it for me from 10 yards away and oh wait AGD said to use the honor system. 
    But really this is meant to be fun and if we as a community of air gunners can’t count on each other to be faithful and honest then we shouldn’t even have contests.
    It sure would have saved me a bunch of headache to just fake the whole thing.
    Heck i thought it was gonna be easy! I started off with my ball sitting on a water bottle and hit the neck of the bottle on my first shot. thought i was a bad MF until i did the walk to find out i had ruined my stand. Then i got frustrated and hot. But in the end i’m proud that i didn’t give up.

    Seth i don’t know the answer to that. I’ve owned a bt65 and i’ve shot an Impact and just holding the gun you can feel the quality difference. Is it 1300 dollars difference? I don’t know.
    I tuned and tweaked and fiddled with my BT65 until I got the power up to where i thought it should be for hunting but then in reality it was too much for my backyard, so i sold it. The reason i got the Gladius was so that i could power down to 2 for my backyard and power it up to 6 for hunting. But the Impact is so much more adjustable than the Gladius that if you are the kind of guy that likes to fiddle and tune your gun it’s your dream gun. But if you just want to pull it out of the box and shoot it then it’s a waste of money IMHO. Me, I’m a fiddler and just the thought of having all those knobs and dials to fiddle with makes me happier than a Puppy with 2 Peters!

    it was hard pack dirt and i spent a hour cleaning it last night to get the dirt out of EVERYTHING! I haven’t shot it yet so i’m not sure if the POI has changed or not. It looks like the elevation turret to the biggest hit. It still turns ok but that doesn’t mean it’s ok inside.

    I’m cringing already at the comments that I’m gonna receive at this video. I just watched it again and i wanted to cry when my Gladius hit the ground. But if y’all really want to see it then here it is.

    It was 152 yards to be exact.  i wouldnt be a bit surprised if i hit it on the 152nd shot. 
    In hindsight i should have called it off and gone home when i couldn’t find my key to the gunrange.

    I finally hit my ball with my Hatsan Gladius long in .22 but I’m very embarrassed to say that i lost count of how many shots i took. So many my video camera with a zoom went dead and had to video with my phone. Probably around 150 shots. Then my rifle fell off of my truck and landed on the scope.

    To make excuses, it was over 104 degrees and the darn heat mirage distorted the air so bad i could watch the ball move around at least 1 moa. Plus the sweat kept making my eyes burn and to top it all off i got stung by a red wasp. Just hoping the fact that the wasp was red is a good omen. Cause everything else about that day sucked!!!

    When it cools off i’m going to try with my Bulldog but holy cow it’s frigging hot in West Texas right now.

    If i really have to post that video here i will but I’m really disgusted and embarrassed that it took me so many shots.

    That is a good looking gun. How does the stock hold up without the aluminum to hold it together in the front? does it get flimsy? I know the stock halves are flimsey when they are off he gun but once you put it all together it becomes very rigid. just wondering if that has any effect.

    “Tony.fryery”I’m wanting to see the results of the aero magnum Bullets out at 100 yards
    
They did extremely well out of my bulldog. The only thing that did better was the HIgh Arc Hunter Raptor 174gr. But the trajectory of the AeroMagnum was alot better

    I’ve talked to a TPWD officer and he said that i could hunt any non Game animal with an air rifle. So if you have to have a hunting license for it such as Whitetail deer, Turkey, white wing dove, etc. then you have to use a center fire rifle. But hogs, rabbits, pigeons, squirrels etc (just as Thurmond said) can be taken with an air rifle.

    I have a place that you can come shoot on but if you are going to be in the DFW area you will be about 5 hours away.
