  2. I recently bought a Texan .257. Sight in at 100 yards and easily smack steel at 200. Need to stretch out to 300.
  3. I was there on Saturday. No news media that I saw.
  4. Whoops didn’t see the question. That’s an ATN Xsight I normally use for rat killing at night.
  5. My Son Henry, loves the .25 Sumatra Carbine. I think he does pretty well at 25 yards.
  6. I have a boat I built a while back, a 22' Tolman Skiff which I use for off shore fishing and motoring around the bay and up the Sacramento. It's a chore to haul it out of the shop and get it ready for trailering for when I just want to go do a little sight seeing in the sloughs around Vallejo, and just up beyond the Mothball Fleet. It'll float in about 18" of water, but that's pushing it. So I'm thinking of buying or building a skinny water boat. I met a feller a few months ago who builds duck hunting boats, and his boat has my attention. Duck Hunting Boat. He describes it as a shallow water and stable boat that works well for fishing as well as duck hunting and curiously to me a layout boat. I'm not a duck hunter so that would be lost on me. Any thoughts? Skinny water boat suggestions?
  7. This is an old post, but what the hay... I have a first generation Marauder in .25, and I use low to medium scope rings as I try to keep the scope close to the axis of the barrel. Gotta clear the magazine though.
  8. Our monthly Diablo Rod and Gun Club Air Gun Silhouette match is Sunday at 1:00 PM in Concord at the MPR. Come out and enjoy some Silhouette shooting. Weather will be absolutely delightful. The 40 shot rifle match is 10 shots each at 1/10th scale chickens, pigs, turkeys and rams at 20,30,36 and 45 yards. We shoot two banks of 5 animals per Relay. Air pistol and Short-Range Air Rifle (SAR) is shot at 10, 12.5, 15 and 18 yards for chickens, pigs, turkeys and rams respectively. There are three classes of NRA Air Rifle Silhouette: Open (all PCPS), Target (unaltered factory 10 meter guns) and Sporter (any unaltered OTC factory non PCP including springer and 12g CO2). Two classes of NRA Air Pistol Silhouette: Standing and Open Sight Standing. Three classes of IHMSA Air Pistol Silhouette: Standing, Unlimited Standing and Unlimited Standing Iron Sight. We also have four of our own DR&GC Air gun games for fun: Short-Range Air Rifle (SAR) on pistol targets (under 12 ft. lbs.), Long-Range Air Pistol (LAP) on rifle targets, Varmint Air Rifle (off the bench) and Varmint Air Pistol. All guns must be below 20 fpe for rifle and 12 fpe for pistol to prevent target damage. Even beginners will find a class that suits their ability and will knock down enough animals to feel a sense of accomplishment and fun. We have a great group of folks participating at all levels. Our more experienced shooters are always ready to help new shooters develop their skills. You don't need an expensive rifle or pistol to join in the fun. Bring what you have and give it a try.Rifles are limited to 20 fpe or less and Pistols are 12 fpe or less. Calibers permitted are .177, .20 and .22 only. No .25 caliber. Lead pellets only. No BBs, darts or plastic tipped or metal coated pellets. All spectators and shooters are required to wear safety glasses. Hearing protection is optional and recommended. We typically run two Relays so you can shoot rifle in one relay and pistol or other rifle or pistol class in another. You can even shoot a refire, which is a second round of the same class. Our targets are custom built, one-of-a-kind string resettable silhouettes so the matches tend to go pretty quickly. Have fun and keep your rifle and pistol shooting skills sharp with air gun silhouette. Hope to see you there for a great day of shooting. Ladies and juniors are encouraged to attend to see and experience what the excitement is all about. There will be free air tank refills from the club compressor after the match for tanks with a current hydro. All shooters must sign the USI liability waiver form located on line here prior to shooting a match at USI: http://unitedsportsmen.com/waiver/ It is free, signed on line and is a one time procedure. After signing the waiver, all shooters are required to obtain a USI "Blue Card" available free at the club house. You must have your Blue card with you. USI is now charging a $5.00 replacement fee. I suggest you take a picture of it and store it in your mobile device. All FT and Air Gun Silhouette events are listed on the Diablo Rod and Gun Club calendar here: https://diablorodandgun.com/calendar/ Directions here: https://diablorodandgun.com/directions-and-facilities/ Hope to see you there on Sunday.

  9. How long to fill your tanks at various sizes and fill pressures?
  10. In Vallejo, you can get your 4500psi tanks filled by Vallejo Fire Extinguisher Services. Tain't cheap at about $11, but they fill them. Vallejo Fire Extinguisher Services 617 Solano Ave, Vallejo, CA 94590 (707) 643-5258 Will continue searching for other places. Steveoh
  11. It's worked out perfectly. Carried up the hill as far as I dared. I can just get 35 yards shooting diagonally across the yard. The .45 909s does not budge it, and I'm willing to bet it doesn't go in more than 4 inches. A Steel backer would give even more good feelings... I'm in Benicia which appears to be only 397 miles away!
  12. I have a silent pellet trap I made a couple years ago using 2x lumber, and two layers of duct seal. Worked great for all my pellet guns, and even the Sumatra .25 Carbine cranked up all the way and shooting 43.2 grain Eun Jin pellets. Well, it worked fine till the other day when I started shooting at it with my Sam Yang 909s .45. After a dozen shots I split the back wall of it. That was a 2 x 10 chunk of redwood. So I figured I'd make one a little heavier duty. So I put together box made of scrap 2x4s I had laying around. Doubled the thickness of the back wall. Then I filled this box with two bags of rubber mulch from Lowe's. Bent over to pick this thing up and just about popped a gut. I think it has to be a 125 pounds. UGH. But I don't think I'm going to have any trouble shooting through this thing. Off course I have to use a hand truck to move it around. The 909s pushed around the 30-35lb trap, but I don't think it's going to budge the big one...
  13. I have a custom Bayou Sling for my .25 Sumatra Carbine. http://www.bayougunsling.com It's nicely made, and requires no drilling or mounts
  14. Having trouble getting the .457 EPP-UG's to seat. Way too tight of a fit. Looked at the website, and he says, "as cast", and no mention of being sized. So I need a .457 sizer and press. Looking at the inexpensive Lee press and sizer. Good grief this thing barks... and destroys 2x lumber.
  15. When I lived in San Francisco, I used to find bullets on the sidewalk in front of the apartment front gate. Bah.
