Mine will be here Saturday, I'm setting in my driveway waiting on the brown truck, got the ice chest by my side... Kinda like the first inline at a black Friday sale. I went with .177. HW50 because of the weight and cocking effort. I shot a TX200 for years, but due to health it got to where I couldn't deal with the weight (I don't shoot from a bench). Hopefully my eyes are still good enough that I can use the open sights.
The plan is to shoot up all of the .177's I have then lube tune it.
We have just had dinner. We had Alison Holsts' lazy lasagne. Alison is a well known NZ cook who writes family cook books. Our lasagne was made with minced lamb, garlic and cherry tomatoes. The sauce part was grated cheddar cheese an egg and cream. Delishimo!
Minced lamb is a bit finer texture than minced beef.

Well I shot two FWB 300s, a FWB 124 and my newly acquired Diana model 60 Tyro that I just recently resealed and resprung due to the forward piston seal being crumbled and disintegrated into oblivion. They all shoot very nice and accurate but the 60 is just utterly amazing in smoothness and absolutely no recoil whatsoever.
Like to see some pics of the tyro?
Randall, I just converted my impact to .30 cal and used JSB 18 grain which is probably overkill for ground squirrels. You definitely know when you hit one from the loud "thud" sound. Shooting was often interrupted by hawks coming in for a free lunch sometimes as close as 20 yards.Typo on the 18 grain?

I called umarex yesterday and asked about the tank block. I was told they haven't had any in stock since last year and they have no eta on when/if they will have anymore in, just thought I would let everyone know in case anyone else is looking for one.

I'm curious about your decision to put the HUMA in. I get the concept of two regs, to take the strain off, and possibly also to minimize creep. Good stuff. - But here are negatives. First, obviously, you no longer have an external adjust for the final pressure. Second, you've made the plenum much smaller.
The first issue isn't huge, if it's a 1-purpose gun, but (assuming you previously had the JSAR set to 2200) did you notice any performance decrease after the HUMA install?
Been teaching for 25 years.
Some of you all sound pretty paranoid. We are just ordinary people and parents trying to raise our own families and share the things that we love most about learning.
