  1. No, just no. That's the kind of ammo Gamo skews their tests with, you'll get fps, but beyond 15 yds that stuff will fly a few counties over and hit like a marshmallow compared to a solid soft lead pellet.
  2. I'd personally recommend a Benjamin 392 in .22 cal (prices went up since last year). https://www.cabelas.com/product/Benjamin-reg-Air-Rifle/740656.uts I've done a good amount of squirrel hunting with it and it doesn't fail (Unless you venture into PCPs or expensive magnum springers, headshot your quarry), it'll always retain consistency (cause of fixed barrel), will never loose power (pressurized air), and will out live a spring. Now numbers speaking it won't compare to a Gamo Air rifle because they dope their testing if you will with shooting pellets that weight around 5 grains. to achieve 900-1000 fps with .22. I like Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum Domed pellets which are 14.3 grains (A 392 should go around at least 650fps with these using 8 pumps), inexpensive compared to other brands, great performance and they keep a good ballistic coefficient if you go out to 50+ yards. (25-30 yard zero is good, you should try to keep it within 40yds). For accuracy potential of a 392 at 25 yards I shot a Coldsteel blowgun dart in half, that kind of target is around 4mm in diameter.
  3. God no, scares everything off. Hell I've shot my pellet gun and have deer avoid coming by my house and that's quieter than .22 subsonic, break out the bow they come back within the day. Unless suppressors ever get legalized, which let's be honest will never happen here. Just too much noise in the woods.

    Broke out the Sako today

    We got a 25x Zeiess on our 6.5 Sako, my .308 has a 16x Nikon.

    Broke out the Sako today

    Stock PPU Match FMJ, great brand but isn't Hornady or Handloads, good testament to the tolerances of the rifle. The Swede is my father's which is synthetic stainless, my personal Sako is a synthetic black in .308 specifically since it's a NATO cartridge, no ammo shortages on em' unless the end times come (plus if it came to that I'd try to use a bow and as much as possible).

    Can't Wait To Get It .......

    Ah I remember the day I walked into school with a MAGA hat, I was called all the names under the sun, berated, that poor hat got flung across too many hallways and classrooms to count. Instead of getting into 20 some odd fights that day, I chose the path of civility (more for my disciplinary record for college instead of moral high ground). Well it worked to show the utter rudeness of leftist teachings instilled in the indoctrination of the feeble minded. The hat endured and still is vibrant in it's beauty in simplicity.

    Broke out the Sako today

    Course it is if you take the whole target with all 25 shots, the 1st photo was the first group on that target (5 cartridges in my magazine), the flyer shots in the body and green that are all over the place was when I was standing, head group was with the other rifle, and two in top left target was just firing off last two rounds in the box.

    Broke out the Sako today

    Went up to Cherry Ridge with Dad for a little shooting. Made this 5 shot group @ 300yards, quarter for reference. Around 2" group, tried taking some shots standing up instead of using the sandbag which didn't turn out so great. The headshot group was with my Dad's Bergara Premier HMR Pro in 6mm Creedmoor. The Sako was an M85 in 6.5x55 Swede.

    Can anyone stretch a fox?

    Save the brains if you can, mixed with some water makes a good tanning solution.

    CZ Over and Under 20 Gauge

    They're good shotguns, my 20ga. Wingshooter elite's been doing well on Pheasants.

    Hog Hunting Knife

    If you need a knife I've got a big ol' Khukuri and a Bolo knife that you can use.

    Rusty, don't be mad!

    That poor handle! You gotta use the flick. Nice grain on that Red Oak you got.
  14. Squirrel with bow and air rifle, or moose with bow if I get the chance.

    Want Rabbit + other pelts

    The process involves taking the brains from an animal (deer for context) and after the hide is fleshed. The brains are made into a solution with water of which the hide is soaked in and worked, after which from what I've found after stretching it out it will turn hard like rawhide, if one is more caring they will constantly work in the hide to limber the membrane and make it soft and pliable. After which once that step is done, the hide is cured with smoke for x amount of time all based upon size of hide and thickness. Another primitive way is pegging a hide out in the sun and use nitrates to tan the hide, and by that I mean urine. After which smoking is done.
