    Harry is one of the few people that I respected on that site. He’s a National champion in Archery, Air Guns, Powder burners. I never saw any BS in him. Now some of the other people? Lot’s of Folks will never believe I hit a Crow at 172 yards with a .25 caliber 25.4JSB King out of a AZ Rapid doing 880fps. Dial of death was maxed at 135 yards, and I had to use hold over past the 4 mil dots on Bushnell 4200. One mil for windage. I got lucky and could probably never do it again. I do though very often pick a clump of dirt out to 200 yards, try to hit it with first shot. Then I use rangefinder and retry, repeat. This teaches my eye estimating and it teaches me wind. I love fresh snow or freshly plowed fields that give a visual dust report of impact (since pellets don’t often throw up dirt like an 06 or something) Just because I have no pictures or videos, it won’t be believed. I also made a perfect heart shot on a Crow at 110 yards with a JSB Exact Monster 13.43 grain .177 out of my modded  Discovery. Now, that shot I can do again.
      I fully believe Harry, and this AZ guy’s Math seems impeccable. I guess it’s a pissing contest. I just enjoy shooting and I wish some shots had been seen. Try not to enter “The Pissing Contest.”

Hmmmm thats too bad. I feel like both Azuaro and Harry have a lot to contribute to this sport. It’s really a shame that they can’t share and compare their results for the same topic without attacking or insulting each other. Both Harry & AZ still have posting privileges here, it is their choice to participate or not.

    Over the years, I have read many science and research papers for my business. Many times, its the data and the process that is more important to me than the final conclusion. Without the data, the conclusion is merely an opinion. I have followed both of their posts here on AGN. Harry follows all his points with facts and data. I cannot say the same for AZ.
    I have also found, that usually, the person that screams the loudest in defending their position (or opinion) is the one pushing their agenda and not not necessarily concerned with the truth.

We both saw it happen, on the same day, at the same range. That’s why I’m on Harry’s side for this one.

    Yup – unfortunately I was one on the receiving end of a rain drop- threw my pellet into the score box!😫
    Ill never shoot another match in the rain — 
    our pellets don’t travel fast enough to create a sonic wave in front to deflect rain 💧 
    but I do believe in my case it was the rain coming off the roof of the canopy

    Although air rifles and firearms are very similar, there are very distinct differences. One being a pellet is not a bullet and two, the power levels are vastly different. A .22 pellet traveling with 32 FPE is much more effected by the elements than a .22 rimfire bullet traveling with 125 FPE. If altitude (Thinner air) can effect the trejectory of a pellet, I certainly think rain (thicker air) can effect it as well. Of course this is my opinion, however, I have a feeling that Harry would be able to show concrete evidence for what he is saying.

    I could never understand a close relative who is otherwise a very accomplished, wise, knowledgeable person but in the company of another similar person becomes agitated/ confrontational and even unreasonable. That was until I trained under two international experts who taught us about different human personalities to see if they are appropriate for certain jobs and to tailor your communication to get favorable responses from different personalities.

    All I can say is such behavior is hard-wired in the brain and best you can do is to communicate with such people in a very specific way to ensure the button is not flipped in their brain that turns off the reasonable side of the brain.

    It is a good thing I have never read them “communicate” with each other. I have always found Harry’s contributions to be exemplar( at  least the ones I read).

I understand what you are saying. There is a very accomplished carpenter/builder I have to work with from time to time and holy shit I want to break his jaw after five minutes. Off the job we get along just fine. I could get into the why but it would be a very long post and have nothing to do with airguns.
