Gamo Gopher

9 posts in this topic

Last night [early evening] my wife calls to me "the gopher is standing up in his hole". Having missed said gopher last Sunday I was out for blood. Went to the closet loaded my gamo with a .177 hollow point and one cock of the barrel and I was out the glass door. He was still there looking around, lined him up in the cross hairs, safety off, squeze..........SNAP! Where did he go? Shot looked good, Honey bring me the flash light. Head shot, fell right back in his tunnel. The Gamo is virgin no more. Love back yard hunting. Longboard

I believe this calls for a nice dinner out for the wife. She seen it and brought you the flashlight so you could varify the kill. I would have it mounted ....in on the kitchen wall. Just for her. :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow::oops: :signbs1zn:

Thanks for the replies! The rifle is a Gamo Expo 28 with a Simmons 4x32 scope. The trigger is not target grade at all. YILKES! I have to do the "just right hold" to make the shot, but it is sure is a killer when I do my part. Longboard
