    Hi everybody,

    This video took me a month to film, I was waiting on my Raptor order and in the mean time Norm, from 68W channel sent me a DreamLine classic that I used on the first day of the hunt.

    Later I got the pleasure to hunt with Mike, and he came with an FX Impact in .25 cal

    At some point during the month I cancelled my Raptor order and got my new gun, an RTI Priest2 that is appearing at the last day of the hunt.

    Hope you enjoy the video!

    It's a .25 but I'm really considering getting the .22 kit for it

    That was a sweet video. Does it take a .25cal. to effectively harvest them? Nice setup.

    Great shooting my friend! Really put the smack down on the iguanas. Really awesome long range shots with the Priest too.

    I'm glad you got another rifle that's ridiculous how long you had to wait to try to get a raptor.  JSAR needs to get their priorities together! Not a good look for a new company

    No .25 cal is not needed, you can do it with .22, what really matters is accuracy! When @intenseaty22 was here he was using a Cricket in .22

    But if you want accuracy at long range, .25 helps

    Oh yes, this gun is awesome! I'm working on couple of upgrades and I think when I'm done will be almost perfect!

    Erlis,

    You should start a business down there……I'd quit trucking and maybe get paid as a contractor for you? 

    If you could charge $15+ per iguana, I'd do it for $5 each and you keep the rest.

    That Priest 2 has the classic firing/fill ring.  At first I thought a depinger might help but it doesn't do it every time so I suspect it is related to the check valve oscillating at a high speed during the plenum refill. 

    P.S.  Would love to come down and join you for a hunt.  It is really cold here in Michigan!

    if you are being serious I can push this idea super hard, of course that wont be the deal, I'm thinking more of opening a company and split equally. Let me know if you are serious because in this HOA the owner once told me he has 7 other properties similar… I can't do 7 properties by myself, but if we open a company then we can.

    The ping in the camera is way louder than the ping in real life, it's not annoying at all, but it looks like I'm stuck with this type of sounds, the Taipan on camera sounds like if you are fork tuning the iguanas, well, I'll keep doing music

    Yes Erlis, I'm serious.   But I have no money to start a business…..that's why I'm a company man. 😉

    Looking forward to seeing how the new gun performs. I am sitting in the shop with my buddy Kris who has been watching video reviews for days on the Priest II.

    Looks like a lot of fun.  didn’t realize they were such a pest until I started reading about them in FL.  Nice shooting.
