That was a miss.
« on: October 07, 2018, 11:38:55 AM »
That was a miss. This rat set off the ding singer, which woke me out of a dead sleep.
As I headed out the back door I think I ran into the wall and door, made a racket sitting at the Born Wild shooting chair, and then realized I’d not cocked the rifle as I pointed at the rat. More noise. Waited and the rat came back, aimed and pulled the trigger. No hit. Now I’m thinking there was no pellet loaded as I’m not sure I heard an impact.

Good grief. :o

Sorry for the curse.

Update, took out rifle and looked at magazine. Yup, misfire/miss load. Pellet still there. Hmmm.

Bad things happen to good people, just to keep them humble. Don't you feel humbled?

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.

Been a time or two the magazine hasn't indexed on me. Usually on a chip shot too as I sit there dumbfounded. :o Sometimes the rattus comes back. Sometimes not. :-\
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Building duck boats now that I'm "retired".

Well, I haven’t seen Rattus since he high tailed it. I usually don’t miss that shot. But if I ain’t spitting lead taint anyway I’m hitting squat.
