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.

Wow!!  I actually won a prize, that's unusual for me.  Thank you for holding the contest and I'm already searching for a few tins of Pellets to acquire.

Thanks very much, Alan.... You will be happy to know that the money is in the PayPal account I am using to save towards a LabRadar…. along with the $50 per month payments I get for my HAM articles.... I will be purchasing one next year so that I am ready to do lots of ballistics testing of pellets and bullets when I retire in 2021.... Therefore, your contest will help further our knowledge, I can't think of a better use for it....

Molly thanks you too, I gave her an extra treat this morning....  ;D

Golly Allan and Steveoh,
My $50 hit Paypal.  Thanks so much for the contest and last minute entry.  I will put it to good use along with the shooting bench I got last year from ya.  I could really enjoy it if it were to cool off enough here to get outside.  Bob S should have snow in BC according to the weather I've seen.  Anyway thanks a bunch.
Bobn

Bob, I haven't purchased a Labradar yet, but I have used one. Don't expect it to register .177 pellets past about 15 yards, depending on the ambient. And speaking of ambient, the unit I borrowed was not consistent in detecting the muzzle blast, unless the microphone was VERY close to the muzzle of my 397. I've been told that issue has been fixed (?).

 I didn't try it with a .22 caliber, as I don't currently own one. However, it measured my .25 caliber out to almost 80 yards consistently at the indoor range. Outside, maybe 60 yards. It could see my 9 mm Korean junk heap out past 100 yards.

I'm still toying with buying one, but I'm waiting for them to go on sale. That's supposed to be November.

They usually go on sale for Christmas (Black Friday?)…. One thing I have heard is that you have to maximize the signal to noise ratio by having an uncluttered environment.... I know one guy who is tracking .177 cal JSBs to over 70 yards....  :o

Maybe he's in an anechoic chamber!

The newest version, the microphone is a bit different, and there is an adjustment for it, which the original didn't have.

I've talked to their customer service, and even got transferred to their engineering department. They really are trying to improve their product, for which, I give them credit.

As a firm offer to one of the sites greatest attributes, I'll be happy to help you procure one. Snd me a PM and let me know how close to the purchase price you are.
