New (bragging) Milestone
« on: May 17, 2019, 02:56:02 PM »
I didn't know where to put this, so I put it here.

This morning, I opened tin number 61! This totals up to 21,000 pellets. Plus, 4 tins of PolyMags, which equal 600 pellets. All of these were shot through my .25 caliber, LW-barreled, W.A.R. Cobra! The grand total is 21,600, but I have to admit a did drop a few on the ground during loading (I use a single-shot loading ramp).

The vast majority of these shots were at game consisting of pigeons, collared doves, starlings, HOSP, and grackles. Along the way, I've done White Wing and Mourning doves when in season, plus my share of rabbits and hares. In addition, I've shot 3 fox, and 3 coyotes. I didn't count, but I suspect about 500 rounds were into targets.

Just for the record, the barrel has been cleaned twice! Yet, it will hold better than 3/4 inch groups at 100 yards at the indoor range.

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.

I don't think I've shot that many pellets especially out of just one gun.

I'm only behind you by 21,500+; but starting to work harder to catch up.  I am new to my new Weihrauch HW30.

Good luck!

I have the advantage. I have two permissions totaling about 250 acres, just 3 miles outside of the city limits. I almost literally shoot 365. In the last 12 months, I think the total missed days was about 30 or so. I could not wish for any better conditions.
