    Big day today … My pal  traded in his  basically new springer and now has the same air rifle as myself ….. A  brand new FX Streamline in walnut!

    The great guys at  Airgun Source in Ontario sold us the units and we are now a deadly pest control duo! 

    Took only a few minutes and my pal was shooting  super accurate groups at 25 meters!      My Streamline has been here for just over a month and after several outings quite a number of invasive farm pests have hit the dirt!  (mainly starlings, eng sparrows and collared doves) 
     

    The old empty barn came in handy to tone down the effects of a heavy breeze today!   Light was  a tad sketchy but we managed quite well!!!!!!! 

    I 

    Thanks for this great forum … Happy airgunning

    Lucky :)

    Spent many vacations in that beautiful country spent weeks fishing the Ucluelet area, visiting Victoria and all of BC.   Enjoy you Streamlines, mines going to a match on Sunday!

    PS: Aren’t you guys a little young?  You need some adult supervision…

    Heyy Socal!

    Indeed we are still waiting for an official letter of permission from our folks….  Might be a long wait, however, so in the mean time we’ll just sneak out of the house with our new pea shooters!  :D

    I was waiting for someone to ask to see our targets…. Yeah, but they are a bit boring at 25 meters …. 5 shots from a bench rest with a Streamline doesn’t leave much of a hole in paper.

    My pal  forgot he had already loaded a pellet today and ran 2 through at power level 2  …. Interestingly 2 holes at exactly the same horizontal level about 3 inches apart… ooops

    I said.. check your safety .. if it goes on and off, you’ve already cocked and loaded.  No one ever listens

    One thing I must say is pumping his Streamline to 230 bar from basically empty was quite a test for an old guy!   But we survived!  (Sure am Looking forward to the arrival of the  Nomad 4500 portable compressor )  puff puff.    Actually  I find the worst thing about hand pumping is the strain on the old hands….

    BTW… Looking forward to trying out these home made dove decoys … soon!

    I am really impressed with my streamline, I would suggest a donnyfl ldc if you can in your area. I’ve gotten multiple birds in the same tree because it is so much quieter. The streamline in an amazing gun.

Hey there Cranky1

    I think you might be referring to a moderator… Well I would love to be allowed to use one, but up here in Canuckistan they are 100% illegal 

    We  have some really odd laws here but even without a noise reduction, the Streamline (mine in .22) is fairly quiet.  I am shooting nearly all the Starlings on power level 1 and  a couple times I have managed a second shot!

    https://coloradooutdoorsmag.com/2013/08/26/diy-dove-decoys/     << Here is the link to D I Y Dove dec’s   (I printed them on a cheap office printer on 8-1/2 X 11 card stock and gave them a few coats of matt spray varish .. stapled them together.   To give them a 3-D look, I cut inserts from some scraps of plastic coroplast  and glued those strips inside.

    Need to get some time and set up a shoot as we have plenty of invasive collared Doves here! 

    Cheers

Mine is also a 22cal. The gun is pretty quiet on level one, I wish you could have the moderator. Mine shoots 14.3 Gr on 2 really well and the 18.1 on high good out to 100yrds.  I usually don’t shoot past that my normal range is 50-75 yards on birds, I’m getting a 25 when phones arrive.
