If I had landscape lights they would end up targets.

Tom, I know you're a better shot than that! ;D
I've seen your targets, you're pretty deadly with that TX in your hands.
The landscape light isn't closer than 2 feet from my target so that's plenty of room.
And besides, it's one of the spot-type of lamps that sits on the ground and can be directed in different angles. ;)

OK.......now I wanna know how you airgunners from across the big pond successfully hunt rabbits and squirrels at such long ranges with your 12fpe guns!

LOL.....reading some posts from "the colonies" you'd think a 30fpe .25 Patriot is required just to take a squirrel at 10 meters!  :o

Thanks Niko! I don't know about the fellas across the pond but I'm here in the U.S. and I have used allot of 12lb tuned gun's and they work on game quite well! I even use some of my rifles that were tuned to 9ftlbs and have taken quite a few starlings @80yds with a .177cal with a 7.9gn CPHP's :P

Amen to that, Mark!
I've taken out sooooo many pest birds at long distances with my Bearcub it just becomes comical. I have cats follow me out in the field because they know what's coming. ;D
Every time I bring a few rifles to the field, the Bearcub is always in the trunk as the cleanup hitter. Yeah, folks, the little Vulcan bats fourth in the lineup. The Patriot, Crow Magnum, RX-1, blah blah blah have nothing on the little Vulcan. I can wield it around all day long in and out brush since it's such a small package. I call it an R9 in a small, British package ;)

I know I keep talking it up, Mark, but you're going to love that little cannon.
Shoot it for a while first and then tune it, you'll be amazed how it shoots after a nice tune. ;)

Ed, I think you got it all wrong. Out here in the States we need a 45fpe gun for a squirrel at 10m for a flatter trajectory ;D ;D ;D ;D

Bear in mind in most cases we don't even have the luxury of a full 12ft lb here in the UK, we have to leave a buffer just in case because the consequences of an over power air gun are so severe.

Unlimited fine and up to 7 years in the clink now. Same applies to importing over power guns intentionally or not.

Mark,
I expect a full report with lots of pics, closeup shots, different angles, etc..
The first three serial numbers and any other details. 8)
I still have all the paperwork and receipt for my first Bearcub along with the trigger fob (fancy little Beeman thingy that hangs from the trigger guard).
And don't forget to track it 30 times per day like Joe. He is a glutton for punishment and nobody knows torture better than Joe. ;D ;D

Bear in mind in most cases we don't even have the luxury of a full 12ft lb here in the UK, we have to leave a buffer just in case because the consequences of an over power air gun are so severe.

Thanks for the info, Gary. ;)
I've heard that lots of people in the UK have their air rifles tuned in about 11.2 - 11.4 fpe just to be on the safe side. The TX200 is notorious for creeping up in power over time so they keep that one down to just a little over 11fpe as a buffer.

Thanks, yes I remember us going back and forth about the Vulcan, hope all is well. I'll eventually get the Longbow tuned and am looking into a custom stock for the Evolution. I'll eventually post photos. I like the English springers more than the German ones. I love the Longbow because it has a great trigger, is compact, accurate and it seems like it hits hard. The Supersport is extremely accurate, quiet, easy to cock, hits hard (14.08 fpe) and it's so R7/HW30 esque in size. The Evolution, oddball caliber, quiet accurate and gas ram. May thin the heard though to offset the cost of the custom stock for the Evolution and future Longbow tune.

Well lets see how the Longbow comes out after the tune. Eventually I'll be down just to one, as I'm not shooting enough to justify all three.

It sounds like your favorite one is the Longbow.
