Aloha,
  I tested the Predator XXL's at 25, 40 and 70 yards and here are the results.  Bear with me, I am new at making videos so here it is ...warts and all. I have quite a few more in the works, so please subscribe if you like.  Let me know what I can do better as well. Mahalos!

Thanks guys..... I tell ya, It has been a challenge for some reason trying to get a harvest on an airgun video.  I have quite a few with crossbow (which I will be posting later), but have had the jinx on airgunning...here is a post from GTA (Hope this is OK Joe)
"Two kills with my Dragon Claw, first had corrupted files in the camera, second time, small small buck neck shot at 20 yards.  Was dragging deer out in the rain and my friend asked if I had it on film, I said Yes, and looked down on the scope mount to see NO CAMERA!  Still havent found it.  Oh well, still had the GoPro going on my head, got home inserted memory card in computer and CORRUPTED!!  Two cams, no dice.
 Fast forward 10 hunts...nada for various reasons. Mainly, the grass is too high, and you cant get a clear shot or even see them at the places I am allowed to hunt.
Here is the kicker, went to retrieve my camera mount out of my treestand last weekend, and Ill be darned if two does didnt step out, one trotted off, the other stopped at 10 yards.  Of course, I had no weapon OR camera.  Think I have sat in that stand about 12 hours prior without seeing anything, at least within range...or even filming range. First time in years I have no deer meat in the freezer.  Guess that is why it is called hunting  ;D"
I will keep at it..Onward!!!!

This is all good. I have been waiting forever for the United Sportsman Range to reopen in the SF Bay Area, but have about given up on them. They had to dig everything up, and build new structures. It's been a year +. So I am going to try to head to Richmond Range this weekend and give the Sam Yang 909s a go with different ammo, and take the DAQ .58 pistol. I'm undecided on the DAQ rifle as I still haven't gotten the smashed trigger resolved with the USPS.

I have sample bag of the .45 pellets that are similar to the Predators sold by African Air Ordnance. Will give them a go too.

These big bores are fun to shoot, but man do they suck the air.  The DAQ .58 short rifle I have was empty after three or four shots. I lost count, but I had thought that there'd be some air left, but nope, it DUMPS it on the last shot.  :o

I see my future self buying a compressor.  How to get that one by the wife?
