    Hi I wanted to say I usually hunt with slugs and hi power and all my pcp guns and optics are working flawless and to be honest It is almost too easy hunting here now so I decided I need either a new gun or to change things to keep me motivated , I decided to take my Leshiy and convert it to 12fpe and see how it shoots and hunts , I got a new valve and 12fpe huma regulator kit , I cut new valve  to length for tiny plenum , and I set pressure to 80 bar , I backed off hammer spring all the way and I got out chrono , I am running 12 inch barrel , my old tune was 27fpe or 822fps

    I then chrono gun  and it is going like 600 fps with 18 gr ,and I set up my new dedal scope for 35 yards and did a bunch of shots to get the feel of hold points from 10 yds to 75 yards ,To my surprise it was super accurate at low power , I was using sorted edgun 18 gr pellets , I then popped on my ATN Thermal and sighted it up at 35 yards and did shoot like 50 to see hold points , Let me finish I shot all these shots with first fill , I did not count but geeze I think I shot over 60 shots big difference from 23 shots at 820fps

    OK now for the best part , I went out at 10 pm I trudged threw woods to a chicken farm and took out like 20 rats , I then came home and kept going out on deck and wasting chipmunks in my garden , I was like a kid in a icecream store ,

    I got u late today and took titus and wife to swap out game cam films when crossing my woodpile near pond it is infested with chipmunks , I turned on thermal and I saw many I picked one out for titus breakfast

    I love this setup leshiy 12fpe ATN 5×50  640 thermal

    Superbly done sir!!! That is a great strategy. Do you think 75y is the top end of your tune for humane and effective kills with the 18 grainers?

    LOVE that photo of TITUS 😎

    for a chipmunk yes 75 yrs , with hi power gun I behead them over 100m with my 22 taipan and my r5m with slugs , This is first hunting with low power for me and it is awesome a change every one I hit at this power dead on impact ;

     

    Hi He potter , My thermal is finally perfect , I did but it then it was blurry I sent it back ATN put in a new 100mm lens , I still had interment issues and I called atn and spoke to many , they said send back for replacement , well , Their was nothing wrong with it , it is all in the settings and adjustments , Like the 4th time I called for a tip I was on hold with a person who was trying to find tech support , and we spoke and he owned same unit , I was having horizontal lines like a old 1920 tv . and the guy said well if you dont need it shut it off , I said huh ? he said ohh the WiFi chip was built close to the thermal image board and when it gets hot it can do this . I shut off this and a few other settings , and now It is deadly and I love it , hey if you want to get one message me and I will go ovr some other things that work and don't work with them , But I finally got mine dialed in I can see a chipmunk at 15 feet and a deer at 1650 yards clear as day

    it just took me to send it in 1 time and then a few calls and picking brain of other get from atn who owns one and me trying other settings , Hey this ATN has so many features , I was skeptical with all buttons I was thinking go simple like low power nv like PVC14  or 2x thermal but I got this , and now I got it working well at shorter ranges , remember this thermal is like a PC not like a scope so it is critical to voltage to power the obeadian cpu it wants 1.5v , not 1.3 so wrong batteries and give issues too , only use kentli , they are best of best

    hi BF , I got the huma 12fpe kit and a valve from brian  you have to cut valve as new plenum is shorter to make it less power it cuts easy with a razor knife

    @hepotter that just plain xxxx. I must have been in a coma for a few decades .. liberal tree huggers in Arkansas???!!! Have you ever thought of planting a bunch of fast growing bamboo between you and your nosey neighbors? That would be on my high prio action item list if I were in your situation brother!

    @hepotter.  I would imagine dead chipmunks would make fine ammo for a spud-gun.  A chipmunk mortar so to speak.  😉    High points for landing them on the roof   Or double bonus for Santa chipmunk down the chimney.  Save on walking lol..
