Meaning a very big 45 caliber slug and a cartridge that holds 70 grains of power.
They look like a good size lipstick. You can watch the round thru the sights travel downrange to deal with anything in it's path in a most impressive manner, mere paper is such a waste to that much kinetic force.

I know, it's a BB gun, but it's fun.

With these pellets, it can shoot a dime size group at 20 yards if I do my part (sometimes smaller). With other pellets, the group size can go up to ~1.5".
I have a Russ Best'ed RWS-45 side-lever 3-ball sear .22 cal in a nice walnut Tyrolean stock with a Macarri scope that deserves a lot more attention than I've given it lately. Also the FWB 300S Mini that is one incredibly sweet shooter misses me. I have shot the FWB 124 sport recently, just yesterday, another sweetie that makes me better than I am. I owe Grumpy Dave some NF airguns I just can't get myself to part with yet, couple of HWs and a Webley. Also have too many air pistols to mention incl my Dad's 60-odd year old Hy-Score Concentric .177 cal.

We have a couple of CO2 powered 6mm pistols, one is like a Colt 1911 the other looks like a Beretta Cheetah. They started out to be paintball weapons but with a muzzle velocity in excess of 500fps they are capable of drawing blood so it is recommended they only be used for target. They sure do get the attention of the white tailed lawn rats.

I also have a .177 CO2 powered pistol modelled after the Colt long barreled revolver. One dat three turkey buzzards landed on the main roof. Did not want them bothering the kitties so I chased them off with that using mushroom pellets The barrel is rifled so it is pretty accurate.

A very relaxing past-time, pellets keep costs down and make it a back-yard-friendly activity for most with a proper trap backdrop in place.

Can one of my fellow airgunners tell be what happened with Russell Best? Go to PM if necessary, I forgot my login at the Yellow Forum as it's been years since I was active there.
TIA!

While you're changing things, you might want to dump the Arpaio bullshit in your signature. After what Pio told us about his family tragedy, I'd say the sentiment you're expressing is totally inappropriate.

No it's not inappropriate at all, it's just your opinion. I do see where your coming from but your asking to quell his speech.

Exchange the word "gun" with the word "politics" and you have the reason why this board was created. Although, I wouldn't really call what goes on with "audio" nuts "sane" either.
