    Hey Fellas, Thanks for the Kudos!!! It was an exciting day!!
73yds pushing a Mr. HollowPoint 280gr HP @ 990fps
I love that gun, when we opened him up the HP had blown a huge hole in the heart, destroyed one lung, the Antelope was completely dead with in 5seconds!! The exit was next to his goober. Lol not a drop of meat was lost!!! This could not have been a better day.

Take care fellas

Was this a shot to the chest? I ask because I learn something with every new hunting adventure in the field or in my armchair.

Yes that was a shot to the chest.  Went clean they just next to his genitals.

Sorry for the late post, I just joined the forum about a week ago.  Congratulations on a really nice Antelope and a great hunt!  It's amazing how pellet guns have changed since I was a kid.  I'm learning more each time I log in and my gun wish list keeps changing  :). So much temptation - I must resist, LOL.

Resistance is futile. (Evil laugh)

I'm finding that out, LOL.  There are so many to choose from it makes my head hurt trying to decide.  I bought a Gamo Urban to try PCP's out before investing too much money and am very impressed with it so far.  I've changed my mind so many times on what to get next.  At first I was looking at the Daystate Huntsman XL then I saw a deal on a FX Impact and almost pulled the trigger on buying it with a compressor, then I looked at reviews on the Edgun Leyla and was thinking of buying one.  The Diana Skyhawk in walnut has caught my eye recently but I'm waiting to see reviews on it, the walnut stock on it is gorgeous.  I've read a lot of great reviews on the Taipan Veteran so now I'm leaning in that direction.  I'm sure I've left several others out LOL.

Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Building duck boats now that I'm "retired".

Once they've seen Paris...

I currently have three PCPs, but have had more in times part. All shot well, except for one (lousy tuner!), but I still use my WAR Cobra the most. I'm very close to shooting 18,000 rounds. I know this number, because I have kept every empty tin! No, I'm not a hoarder, but I do use them to hold up my workbench!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Welcome to the fold.  You're in Lafayette?  I'm in Aurora.  May have to get together for a shoot.

Joe,

That would be great if I can ever find the time, LOL.  I'm self employed and 2018 was crazy, 2019 is starting off the same.  I'm lucky if I can find a hour once a week to shoot at 25 yards in my shop. That's also one of the reasons for getting into pellet guns, being able to shoot indoors without getting the Police called and not having to drive an hour each way to the gun range. If things slow down I'll let you know.  I'm a member at the Aurora Gun Club which, I'm guessing, probably isn't too far from where you live.
