Well I drove up to PAG and picked up an Air arms TX200 MKIII in .177 and it's a very nice gun. I can't wait to sight it in tomorrow and see how well it does. I still have to pick up my .25cal Rapid 60fpe from PAG too. :roflmao3[1]: Attached File  1.jpg   17.04KB   16 downloadsAttached File  1.jpg   15.84KB   17 downloadsAttached File  2.jpg   14.84KB   14 downloadsAttached File  3.jpg   19.28KB   16 downloads

Those are great shooting. They're a bit heavy but very accurate. Congrats.

Congrats on the new gun. Please, don't forget to post some results when you get to test it. :roflmao3[1]:

The fit, finish and quality are excellent, the metal is flawless and isn't blue but what looks like black chrome and has to be seen in person to believe. The gun isn't very loud at all and has very little kick, no spring twang and a smooth shot cycle.The trigger is butter soft, a little too soft for me and the first stage isn't setup the way I like as there is too much travel and it doesn't stop before the second stage so I hope with some adjustment I can get it where I like it but it's proving harder to adjust then my other triggers. The gun is a little heavy but well balanced and solid. The wood is very nice even in the beach stock with very nice fish scale engraving. The under lever is very easy to cock but it's a little tricky to load as this is my first breach loader but after about a dozen shots I got a routine that works for me.I sighted it in at 25 yards and got some good groups of 1/4"-1/2" then I would get a wild flyer and you could smell burning since it only has around 50 shots it's not even close to being broke in yet. I'm sure after the gun is broke in and I get the trigger set right the groups will be better.Oh yeah, I got a bird at 66 yards with it today too. :archer-green:

Cleaning and cooking rabbits is easy. The sooner you clean them the better and easier it is. The skin just slides off of them, and you open them up and pull. Cooking them is even easier. A little salt, pepper and flour along with a hot frying pan and you are all set. :smiley_green_with_envy:

That's a nice new toy! I'm surprised your wife let you set it on that purdy bedspread even for a moment to take a picture!

Well my fastest shot today was 1002fps and my slowest was 983fps using RSW R-10 Match 7.0 grain. The gun is still smoking every once in awhile so still needs to break in.My best string was,H 999L 989A 992ES 10SD 3

I've gotta say AIRARMS is one maker that does not do the "gamo" b.s.with their advertised velocities.I recently had a full tune done on a BAM-26 and the spreads are tightand velocity went up a little after the first tin.
