Huben v. Rat...
« on: April 19, 2021, 09:24:09 PM »
The Rat won...  This time!



I think I need to put some more pellets down the barrel to get it settled in a bit more.  I was trying to do a double tap also, probably should have just concentrated more on one clean shot!  Hard to tell from the video, but I think it was a clean miss.  I guess I'll know for sure if he shows up again.

Paul! Man...I see the paint/wood fly behind it...h'mmm...tried to see where the impact on the board was but don't see any new marks! You might have gut shot it as he was blocking the view of the board. If I accidently pull the trigger too early my shots hit a tad low. Well, like you said if he shows up or not you'll know! Nice video! I bet your heart was RACING! The weather is warming, more will come!

Hmmm, yeah I definitely saw stuff fly up in the air - hey maybe if he Mohawk'd him, would stuff still fly up like that?  ;D ;D ;D

Clearly, that was a ninja-rat. 
It caught a glimmer of light off your scope,  then heard the sound of your finger on the trigger,  & then it threw some sawdust into the air to confuse you as it turned to make its escape.

Legend has it that these highly-skilled stealth rodents used to only exist in Feudal Japan,  but then around 1980 a pair of them made their way to America in the trunk of a Datsun 510.
These days they can mostly be found in the alleys behind sushi restaurants,  though very rarely they can make their way to residential neighborhoods. 


True story, dude.   ;D

Thanks Randall, that video was a lot shakier than normal, it was hard to see exactly where the pellets hit, and yes, there were 2!  There was one out this morning, don't know if it's the same one or not since there were 3.  I'll have to keep the surveillance going to know for sure!

Hmmm, yeah I definitely saw stuff fly up in the air - hey maybe if he Mohawk'd him, would stuff still fly up like that?  ;D ;D ;D

Charlie, if that were the case, he should be easy to spot when he returns, especially os he dyes it pink!

LOL!  Great story Allan!  I do believe some of these rats do possess Ninja Powers!  I didn't realize they got here by string away in a Datsun!  Sneaky little guys!

Well I vote for cross cutting the pellet head w/a razor blade for the next shot or shots...

...but then you might need multiple cameras set at different angles to catch all the body parts flying off in various directions...

I may have to switch to the 25.4 grain FX or JSB pellets, those shot the best with hardly any flyers!

So, you're telling me to shoot Ninja Rats I need Ninja Pellets? 

That's a really big RAT! I can't tell for sure but I know you are a very good shooter and they do sometimes run off after a hit.

Thanks Johnny!  I think I'd have gotten him with my Mrod or one of the FX rifles, these semi-auto's tend to be a tad wonky sometimes, especially on the first shot after sitting a while!  But, if he's still alive, he will be back!   ;D

Tonight's project is to part the backs of some 25.4 grain FX Pellets so I can see where they are going!  This video I could not see the pellet, so it's really difficult to troubleshoot what went wrong!  Maybe just some funny Rat-Fu Ninja move, where the pellet just went through some magical opening that manifested itself on the rat!  You know, like those black holes Wiley Coyote used to toss on the ground for the Roadrunner to fall into!   :P

Just went to watch it, and then commented. And upon further rewatching it was not a huuuuge gash of streaming rat's blood like I thought, but a red -- bird of some kind?
