Pcp

anyone getting into PCP airguns?

i have...they're not to be taken lightly.

i recently spoke to an airgunsmith who lives in AZ...he told me he takes javelina and wylies with his on a regular basis...

what he uses is not your 'run of the mill', big 5, .177 pellet rifle...it's a PCP that generates nearly what a .22 lr does in KE.

since my hands have been getting more and more arthritic, i cannot pursue my archery/bowhunting like i did in years past and firearms are somewhat restricted (and i suspect this current administration will launch an all out attack on firearms soon) i have taken up the PCP's.

right now, even kaliphornia hasn't been too busy watching PCP's. we can hunt small game, and even turkey (as long as it's .20 cal or larger) here with an air rifle.

accuracy that has to be seen to believed. a few days ago, i put 8 shots into the same hole from 31 yards with my .25 Marauder. not bad for this ole country boy...
