    With the COVID-19 concerns, all of the FT matches have been postponed in my area.
    And understandably so.

    This year, I have a new gun and scope I will be using in hopes of improving my scores.😉

    So this meant I had to re-do all of my ballistic calcs and holdovers. And with that, I decided to make a video on what I’m doing to get ready for the 2020 season when it starts back up. Obviously, I’m in no real hurry….

    Hope this helps those who are trying to do the same.

    Very informative video.  Thanks for taking the time to make this.  I’m trying to gather information, appropriate gun/scope and equipment to get into HFT this summer.  This is exactly the kind of stuff I need.

    As a side note, the bsa r10’th is one of the guns I’m considering.  I assume you would recommend it???

    Very informative video.  Thanks for taking the time to make this.  I’m trying to gather information, appropriate gun/scope and equipment to get into HFT this summer.  This is exactly the kind of stuff I need.

    As a side note, the bsa r10’th is one of the guns I’m considering.  I assume you would recommend it???  

    Dream I would. IMO the gun is crazy accurate. It holds it's own against my FX. Problem is, that particular model was a one time sell off in a partnership between PA and BSA. I've seen many used in .22 for sale but never in .177. If I do, I'm going to grab it and I don't really need another. 

    You might consider the BSA Buccaneer. The triggers are not "match grade" but they have the same "BSA hammer forged barrel". The Buccaneer as well as the Gamo Coyote have "self regulating valve" (see explanation below) The extra coin BSA charges is for the Benelli stock found on the SE. 

    The other gun is the one Gamo Coyote. Same gun as the Buccaneer just has the Gamo badge on it. It has the CAT trigger. Not the most desirable but workable. 

    Know that Gamo now owns BSA. That's why you are going to see similarities. 

    The important thing too watch for in the Gamo rifles is the that they should have a the BSA barrel. 

    If you do get one, let me know and I'll be happy to help you with the set up I'm using. 

     

    self regulating valve uses the pressure in the cylinder to close the valve, so when the pressure gets lower it opens and closes slower. A fully regged airgun has a secondary chamber which is filled and releases the 'same amount' of air every time.

    Thanks Dave.  The corona virus has me unemployed at the moment, so new guns have been put on hold….but that doesn’t mean I won’t look and dream.  If I do end up with a bsa, I will definitely love to get some setup tips from you.

    AoA has the bsa r10th in .177 on sale right now.  Is this something different than what you’re referring to?
