    What font is that?  When I download using the link it loads into Word with "Calibri (Body)" as the font style.  There are no dots.  Am I missing something?

    You guys should have a arrangement with some dealers in other parts of the world, so prices could also be worldwide, IMO that should not be too hard to set up. ?

    1 tin of pellets now and then, i would say is a bargain prize for being affiliated with AGN.

    I am almost sure Krale or maybe Mundilar would be happy to take care of potential EU winners.

    Enough with the isolationism. its a big air gunning world out there.

    Ooops, yeah just right click on the picture and "Save As" to download the picture as a .jpg.  I'll change the download file type button to .jpg as well.

    Just for fun, I went out today and punched some holes in the AGN target.  We have really high winds today, so I hung the target from some string to make it even more challenging.  Obviously, I'm not winning any accuracy contests, but all of my pellets hit the paper…which was about the best I was hoping for.  It was fun, nontheless!

    Here is a video of the challenge:

    Well done! Pretty wild conditions and position you chose. If you have not yet done so, please share your build in a separate topic, looks really nice.

    Thanks!  I made it as hard as I could.  Again, I was just glad to get all 15 pellets on the paper in those conditions!  It was gusting to over 50mph at the time, and you can tell from how the target was jumping around.  It was nuts!

    My guns seem to look different every week, but the 22cal that I used in the video has been the same for at least a month now.  I'll get some good pictures of that one and my 0.177 PCP conversion for the group to see here shortly.  The carbon fiber looks really nice on the 0.177.

    EDIT – Here is a link to the "Let's see those 2240 builds" post where I posted a few of my guns.  https://www.airgunnation.com/topic/lets-see-those-2240-builds/?referrer=1

    Again, I just did this for fun to see how hard I could make it on myself…and post the calamity for the amusement of my airgun brethren.  I hope you all enjoy!

    Great Job, Smashby59!

    Our targets look quite similar!  Great that you got them all on paper as well.  That wind is a Mo-Fo, for sure!  I'm sure you were pushing more foot pounds than me (~23FPE).  What was your velocity, roughly?

    My apologies for having to ask (this train left the station a long time ago with me not on it), but how does someone "win" these challenges?  Is level of difficulty factored in somehow?

    Kind Regards,

    Well, rushed in a few shots after work the other day.  Haven't shot the rifle for a while.  Got it out of the case, took two initial sighter shots and here is the target.  Not much wind, but trying to beat the daylight and get done before she got home from work.  (I was supposed to be walking the dog.)  Only 5 hits, but good to get the trigger time.  

    This is my squirrel hunting rig, so had the scope at 12x.

    I've never chronographed it myself to see what it's actually shooting at on paper it says 825 fps and 32 fpe. I know mine is more accurate with the 25-28 grain pellets so I'd say it's close to 30ish.

    With admittedly perfect shooting conditions and short distance plus indoors, I fully understand this submission is not award worthy but nonetheless fun to do when it is about 5 degrees outside.

    That HW97 is certainly a tack-driver, bdzjlz!  Great shooting!  I have been planning on getting a really good springer and have been on the fence between the TX200 and the HW97.  I'm starting to like it in Germany better after looking at your paper.  Bam86 is shooting a HW97 as well, but it is interesting how different the stocks are.

    I own 4 97s in all calibers but .25. All have been meticulously tuned.  I own 2 TX200s and 2 ProSports.  All are tack drivers.  If I could only have one, a 97 it would be.

    Great advice that I will hold in high regard.  Thank you!

    Outside in light rain with the Daisy PL 856. Off hand, standing…. Fun to get out, even the conditions were not the best.
