Full power QB78S today in my inhouse range. Makes a heck of a lot less noise than PCP's.

Is anyone doing home electronic scoring. I looked at the Orion home scanner system and wonder if at this point in my shooting if itís beyond my needs. I quit shooting state and nationals a while back, donít see returning anytime soon and am jut this side of 60.
I would think shoot and post pics of target matches here should be enough to satisfy my shooting need.
I also looked at the TargetScore app, but really donít understand what it offers what one can do scoring and entering in a book or spreadsheet.
Posted to entertain thoughts.

My first PCP was a benjamin armada in 25 caliber, Ive had it for 2 or 3 yrs now and I just bought a marauder in 22 caliber in December and really love it. I bought a Boyds thumbhole varmint stock at the same time. This gun is awesome and I'm sure yours is too. There is a ton of aftermarket upgrades for these rifles. I get really excited talking about this stuff lol. You made a good choice going with the compressor for Ive been using a hand pump since I bought the armada. That's going to be my next purchase... hopefully. Ive only been a member at GTA for a short time and I'm loving it. Everyone is really positive and actually really nice and extremely helpful. Enjoy doing some cheap shooting! Welcome.
Ok , after after reading all this I hit the ďbuyĒ button and bought a HW35e. Looking for an heirloom rifle to pass on to the next generation. This is my first break barrel.
Thanks for all the information and advice.

Never saw so many collectable airguns in one place. It was like a museum but you could touch everything. Never been to RIA, it was quite an event. Much of the bidding is online and by phone. Glad I went cause it was awesome looking at airguns I will probably never have a chance to see again. Canít believe I actually won one lot of 7 airguns! More on that when I get back home and unpack them.
One of the guns I saw, pretty unusual

yikes......ya think lol
I like 150FPE or more for Whitetail. Preferably 200 or more. Some folks say 1 FPE for every pound the animal is. I disagree but that seems to be the normal conclusion from folks and it certainly makes sense to a degree. I wouldn't take a shot with less than 150FPE, but that's me. I don't believe VA has a minimum FPE requirement but it might so check the VDGIF website to be sure. It does have to be what you are thinking which is .35 caliber or larger.
I thought the same. I knew it was .35 minimal but never read about a minimal FPE requirement.

If you're looking for a .35 cal deer type gun and be able to swap it out to be a small game gun. When you start looking at the valve to push + 120gr slugs and then look at pushing say a .22 cal 18-34 gr pellets with the same gun. IMO it is not the best fit. I have Prods that I can swap uppers on from .177 to 25 cal, I wouldn't put the .177 on the .25 cal because the porting is so much bigger then transfer port of the .177 I couldn't even tune it down enough to shoot under 1000fps?
It's gonna be your gun and you can do it however you want to do it.. Trust me I know.. I did it my way with the Prods and have a .357 Slayer for big time airgun hunting.

I donít worry too much about refurbed (less expensive) guns. I will have it torn down and modded anyways.
