 All I can say is wow.  Congrats Manny!  I was eating getting ready for work just glancing over my Facebook and see a picture of the Pirate with a hog from Crosmans news feed.   I almost spit my food out! Lol. Then I have to rush over here and get the scoop.  I just want to say thanks for taking on the challenge and sharing everything with us here.  You are one of the guys that make this board awesome!  Now if I have time I'm going to rub it in to those boys over at Hatsan. Lol.  Gosh this is great being to live through you guys for us that are trapped in city lives and get little quality outdoor time.  Amazing.  T

Totally agree with all of that and well said.

For the bolded part, you're in Wisconsin! You guys have woods all over!   ;D   We have nothing but corn here (away from Chicago). Unfortunately I'm in a crowded suburb.   :(

I love it!  Locking the legs of what is probably a 100lb porker with a 20 foot pound break barrel!  One fpe per five pounds of flesh is quite something.  I know if you can punch into the brain, it's game over but I still didn't expect it to go down as if struck by lightning.

I bet your adrenaline was going.  I got a little bit of that just watching :)

If anyone was going to do it, it was you.  Well done!

Oh and speaking of adrenaline, where do you go from here?  Jump from a limb onto the pig's back and administer a Peruvian necktie?  ;D

 I would have thought you would be the one to be on crosmans page before a paper puncher so it not surprise me at all...how big of a hog can the 25 Mrod put down with a well placed shot?i like to seek opinions from people that have been there and actually done that.

But it wasn't as the quoted text:
And when it did, in the words of Crosman friend and host of InsideOutdoorsTV Dave Poteat, he “put it right between the lookers”.

It was, as Manny consistently states is best, 2" above "right between the lookers". This sort of linguistic inaccuracy can be what leads others to attempt the same thing, but with incorrect data as to shot placement.

Sigh, Crosman.

Nice work, Manny!

you know, Manny,... a few months ago you said you were done with airguns, and going back to traditional self bows.  Now your back with a 20 ft lb springer, slinging Kodiaks at hogs.  Love it!

Can you give us some chrony numbers for your setup?  is it bone stock or did you go through it?

Nawh, hah......I said I was done with PCPs :) :)
than a member here put the springer bug in my ear and of course I had to take that challenge :) :)

The gun is bone stock, didn't even touch the trigger adjustment screws,

she shoots the Baracudas at 650 fps.

Assuming that you max out your stock Marauder ( should be about 45 FPE right ? ) ......now is very important you use the right ammo, my choice would be the Benjamin dome if they shoot well,

if you do you anatomy homework ( I had a long thread with lots of pictures in the past ) and get close you should be good with a decent size hog, you can take a bigger saw than a boar.
