Beautiful web site and articles. You really should publish everything as a book.

Nice Cliff and your wisdom of not worrying about "Only" having 15 shots for a day of hunting is right on the money. I have heard some ridiculous arguments on that same subject. Good shooting :rolleyes:

Thanks, glad you like the site. It's a fun project, and I enjoy working on it.

Thanks Mike. Lots of nonsense put out about airguns, and what it takes to have an accurate one. One of my favorites is, you cannot have low extreme spreads without a bottle gun that gets 80/100 shots on a fill, with a large sweet spot. My Disco gives me an extreme spread of only 5 fps. I have the gun set to give me 15 shots. So much for that theory. The thing I am most interested in is, how close is the next shot in velocity, to the last shot fired. I have guns where the extreme spread across the string is 18/20 fps, but the shot to shot consistency is only a few feet per second or less. For example, on my .25 Marauder. I don't care that the 16th shot is 18 fps slower than the third shot, because I don't fire the 16th shot after the third shot, I fire the fourth shot, and there is only a 3fps difference between it and the third shot. When I get toward the end of the string, the same small difference from shot to shot is still in play. The 16th shot is only 5 fps slower than the 15th shot was. It makes for a very accurate hunting rifle.

And that's the bottom line of hunting. Plus the fact I doubt you will ever get into a fire fight with them tassle eared varmints :rolleyes:

SD is a good indication...because it gives you deviation from the 'mean'...The standard deviation is a number that describes uniformity. The smaller the number, the more uniform velocity.

very nice picture that stock is beautiful makes that disco look sweet handsome squirrels also
Love the stock. I was fortunate to get it before the guys shoddy business practices caught up with him and me.

Beautiful animals along with a great story and pics.
Thanks John. It was great to get out for a few hours. Seems like every time I've tried to go out this Fall, something comes up and gets in the way. Probably shouldn't say this out loud, but I'm hoping to get out again next Tuesday. Supposed to be 59 degrees and clear. Snow by Friday.

My chrono always gives me the SD, but I prefer to look at the overall string, and see the individual sequential shot to shot consistency.

"Fire fight", heck some days, I can't even get them to come out and play a quick game of pellet trap. :good:
