It was all my pleasure! 

This is the good part about the internet. You make friends online, and then extend that to in person.  I did the same with a boat building forum way back in 2000. Met good folks from all over the world,  which makes it a much smaller place.

Of Course they show up after we leave.  Would have loved to have popped one when we were there.  Thanks again for opening your home to us.

Michael :- )

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!."

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.

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 still haven't had a chance to mount mine on a rifle.  The Sumatra is dialed in and I am loath to make another scope change.

I think I need three Sumatras to use as test beds for scopes. Yep. Three. The Sumatra is my favorite airgun I own, as it is a rat killing machine.

Arlo missed the shot, but here's the result, a fatty who takes a nappy:

This is using my SWFA 10x40 scope with the super fine reticle. I like the scope, except in low light. Can't see squat.  That BSA needs to get tested. I guess I'll throw it on my QB78, when I get a chance.

The breather is just like mine and that red piece comes out So maybe it is plugged. Or too much oil

Bob, How's your AirVenturi compressor holding up? Any idea how many hours you have on it?

Wow, awesome homestead!

I will say though that there are a few things I do not miss about Florida. Snakes, bugs, and the heat and humidity. I lived in central Florida for 15 years. My Dad was born and raised there up around Liveoak and Yankeetown. My Grandmother was born and raised there. Trouble is as an Army Brat I saw too many other awesome places in the world sans that heat and humidity. But, good on you to find your dream home and land.

Those ponds sure are nice! I'd be out there daily with an ultralight rod and reel with 2lb test or a light fly rod with poppers.  A mess of bluegills fried up? My oh my!

General Airgun Forum Discussion / Drill baby Drill!

Not sure why I thought of whistling projectiles, but I did and have been for a couple years now. This morning I googled and
low and behold look what I found!

Love this channel.

I'm a gonna cast a whole bunch of .58 and .45 round balls and drill baby drill!

The BSA is also available with an illuminated reticle....



Haven't mounted it yet, but fiddled with it a bit more at my desk at work. The cross hairs do magnify as you zoom in. At first I wasn't crazy about the idea, an probably missed that part of the discussion early on. Shallow reader don't you know...

Anywho, this morning at 4:30 am I go outside to take a shot at a rat that was at my number one feed station, but by 4:30am, the batteries in my LED lights are pretty much worn down to squat. I couldn't see a ding dang durn thing. And that super thin reticle on my new SWFA scope did not help. At that point I really regretted swapping it out for my UTG compact scope with illuminated reticle. Now I look at this here BSA, and I think maybe it might work for my early morning Kill the Damn Rat sessions.

I think the answer is to outfit three airguns with the SWFA, the BSA and UTG, and see if I can't see better with one of the three.

Bets or predictions?


ok I got my scope in. Still at work, and it'll be a few days or even the weekend before I get a chance to install.

A question I asked myself when I hit the purchase button was, is this a legit BSA scope, and should it fail, will BSA cover the warranty. Of course I shrugged my shoulders and thought, well, it's pretty cheap, so why worry.

I think this would most likely be considered gray market, and not be covered. But who knows.

Would be interesting to compare this scope to one folks got from Midway.

First glance... the reticle is big and honking compared to my SWFA. Whoa. Reticle for the blind.

Awesome project! And I love the silver metal against that blue stock.

My go to airgun for backyard and beyond is my Sumatra Carbine in .25. With LDC and powerwheel turned to 4 above the lowest setting I can get two or three six pellet cartridges out of a charge. That's using JSB Heavies of 33.9 grains. No doubt I could get 48 reasonable shots if I went with lighter pellets.

You can hunt all sorts of critters with this setup. You can buy a Sumatra, and have money left over for a scope, rings, custom LDC, extra cartridges and pellets.

Sumatra is not pellet picky, is more accurate than me, and I love it.

Oh crank the power up and it will do some serious damage.
