Sunday...
Fortitude and Evanix Air Speed day.
After a QD oring let go at 2500psi and slapped the dog snot out of my hand I proceeded to enjoy a great day of sunny mid to upper 60*. 45yds was the range for the day. Flippers, shoot n see and beer cans suffered the wrath.
Lots of air and lead were consumed..... and a few adult beverages...  ;)


I actually shoot better when I’m a bit buzzed, Mod Bill  ;D

This could  be one of the last nice days  before winter gets serious so I tried shooting at 50 yards, just for giggles.   Hawke 2X7 scope, rested on sandbags, light wind, FWB 601.  I used JSB exact diabolo 8.44 gr because the tin was opened and convenient.   Anyways the groups were approx 1.25" vertical and 2" horizontal.   The sights were set for 10M and I didn't want to fiddle with them so I had a 9.5 inch drop from POA.   I don't believe I've ever had a 2" horizontal string when benching with PBS so I attribute that to the low  velocity  and light wind.   1.25" vertical also seems like a lot to me but then this is the second time in my life that I shot a serious AG at that distance so I've got a lot more experimenting to do.   Anyways it was fun and now I'm wondering if it's possible for NUAH with the 10M setup.

Today, I shot my scoped HW50S and my peep sighted HW50S, both at my customary 30 yards.  The best I could do with the scoped gun was 1/2" groups.  The peep sighted 50S is for my spinner spoons.  I really enjoy my 50 and 30S' more and more each passing day.

plinking cans in the garage with a webley tempest.

I noticed this one says made in England. I thought they were made in turkey but I guess that was more recently.

Anyone know anything about the difference between the English and Turkish made versions?

Almost did a little shooting. Heard a yoto howling real close to the house so I grabbed the sumatra.25 and went looking for it. No joy.😡 Probably shoot my liberty now that I finally got sealed up after installing one of Duy's plenums. He had ran out of bonded seals but being the stubborn cuse I am I tried to get it sealed up without one. Finally gave up and ordered some. Did the trick.

It was a .25 cal day.  I toted the big Hatsan 125 hunting this morning.  Didn’t see any thing to shoot so I had to empty the gun when I got back to the truck.  So I shot a sweet gum ball at about fifty yards.  Surprised me that I hit it.
This afternoon I shot the Striker out to thirty yards with good results.  All in all a good day. ;D
