Glad you enjoyed it. I have a lot of fun doing this, plus it promotes airgun hunting, which in my opinion, is just too much fun to miss out on. :)

Enjoyed your 3 part report. It reinforces my feelings about the prod being a great little airgun. Mine is working out great for targets and hunting. Your shooting was, as always, great.

Guns only have three enemies, Politicians, Ignorant Liberals and Rust.

They are fun guns aren't they. My preferred shot on ground squirrels, is the head shot. Over the past five decades, I've killed tens of thousands of them with head shots, and as you can see in the video, head shots were an easy no brainer, so to speak. :)

Watching those ground squirrels roll down the hill after being hit never gets old. As always love the videos and great info.
