My 8 year old son and I went out yesterday and I took my 40fpe .22 cal Rapid MKII and we saw a few squirrels. First one was at a laserd 36 yards and I took aim flicked off the safety and squeezed the trigger and just as the gun fired for a split second I thought it was broke or I didn't fill it up. The gun was so quite, so smooth and no recoil but then I hear this loud thwack and the squirrel flipped over dead. The second one was at a lasered 51 yards and same results. Since I have been shooting my 60FPE .25cal Air Ranger since I got it I forgot how smooth my Rapid was and how big a difference there is between a 40fpe .22 cal and a 60fpe .25cal. Bigger gun equals more power, more kick and more noise.

Nice shooting. I was reading some of the Rapid vs Air Ranger vs FX Royale debates out there on the web. Some of these guys are really passionate about their airguns.

I'm an airgunholic
