    Well, 5 out of 6.  Those Skittles are pretty small.  But that was a lot of fun.

     

    That was one of the first air rifles I ever owned and I still have it up at our cabin 38 years later!

    Alaskaairgunner, 

    Yep, That one was a dumpster find.  Had to put a couple bolts through the reciever to hold it together.  But it shoots great at short ranges.  It is my GoTo for accurate shots in the basement.

    Thanks…

    Cool! Candy crushing is one of my favorite reactive targets from 10 to 50 yards.

    It's still May.  So I think so.  Just not a lot of posts so far.

    I've never done one of these before, but it sounded like a lot of fun.

    Went out this morning with the full intent of shooting Charms Mini-Pops (my shooting candy of choice) at the extent of my backyard range – 61 yards.

    Calm morning for the first time in days – has been blowing gusts up to 40 mph all week.

    But do you ever have those shooting days when you just can't be consistent?  I tried 4 different guns in practice/zeroing without much success.  Wind was starting to come up so I decided to shoot at 25 yards instead.

    Needed something smaller.  Jelly beans – pretty much only good as targets in my opinion.  Even the 'good' ones from See's Candies.  But what to shoot?  It dawned on me that I hadn't had the Pulsar out for a long time.  Just the gun for the job!

    Made a little video too, just for practice:

    O.K., I had to do the challenge again, in my original intended manner (Charms Mini-Pops at 61 yards).  Some practice shooting and trying a different pellet this morning caused me to think I could do alright.  Unfortunately so far I suck at longer distance shooting.  2 out of 6.  But the explosion of the Charms Pops when hit with a .30 cal round is always good.  Spectacular Candy Crush.  And I have to do something to push myself in order to improve.

    Made video shorter/less boring this time by cutting out time between shots.  Also a little drone flight from my shooting bench out to my 61 yard target box.  Watch to the end as that is where the slo-mo candy explosion occurs!

    Hi all here ya go my first Airgun Nation monthly challenge. I originally set out to do this at 75 or 100 yards. The day I chose to do we had heavy wind gusts and the way my range is set up I end up with swirling wind gusts that are real unpredictable. So Dropped it back to 50 yards cheers!!

    My setup is a .25 Fx Wildcat Mk3 Sniper shooting .25 Jsb 25.39 gr. @ 890 fps, Element Optics scope.

    Travis and I found some time to shoot candy together.  Lifesavers in Gummy form.  

    Thanks for the opportunity, Martin.

    Is a red rider considered an air gun? That is all I have until my new one gets here and it does not look like it will make it before the end of May.

    edit, I also have a blow gun. I might just have to try it because it sounds fun.
