Rotund Rattus Rattus Rolls Away
« on: September 24, 2017, 05:53:38 AM »
5:11 AM, do you know where your rat is? I heard it before I saw it, "Feed Me!".

Took me forever to line up this shot. Turns out I had computer glasses on yesterday and didn't realize it. It would explain why every thing was fuzzy yesterday and why this morning my scope was fuzzy with my normal glasses on. Oh the stress of not seeing reticle when you have a fatty in sight. Anywho, shot went in neck and traveled most of the length of the body and exited back.

No blood!

25 yards, .25 Sumatra Carbine, my 11.5" foot for comparison.

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.

Pleasure was all mine Michael! I recognize good folks when I see them. And I learned a few things about tuning and fixing that Big Black Benjamin Armada.

Oh you two are enablers! Now I have the I wants again.

Prime Rat Killing time is from midnight till 5am. You are welcome to come hang out and kill rats. Of course once you take a shot, it takes on average one hour before they come back. Their network is amazing. "DANGER the assassin is out and about! Make yourself scarce!."

Wait until you get stealthy.  They will just ask what is wrong with Joe?  He sure can dance!!!

Get Travis to install a new valve into a secondhand Marauder.  Really Quiet!  TSS and MDS Hammer!  Full Monty.
