My Rs2 finaly groups good ,well for me. She seems to like the Premier hollow points .
Look out fuz rats. This thing might be good for sniping quail and doves this year.

Looking good TD, nice grouping.
My RS2 in 22 cal likes the RWS pointed pellets better the Crosman Premier Hollow points.
Someday I will try the 14gr 22 cal JSB domes in it and see how it groups.

I've had to check this a few times since I wanted to start using an air gun for hunting but if you use it on doves, make sure it's a resident game bird (Chinese spotted doves, Eurasian collared-doves, ringed turtle-doves of the family Columbidae) and not a migritory game bird (mourning doves, white-winged doves). Air guns are not a legal method of take for migritory game birds.

Good reminder on the migratory birds. Just make sure of what you are shooting at.

Nice shooting, Thumper... As the old saying goes, "only accurate rifles are interesting"... something like that. lol

Anyway, good to see you having lots of fun, and success, with the air gun. Very Cool...

Great point on the doves too. Good job!

OK no doves. Just have to try and poke one with a stick. Real confusing they are listed as upland and migratory. :crazy: :crazy:

Some are migratory and that's why no airgun.

In the regulations, as others have stated, it states you can hunt Chinese Spotted, Eurasian Collard and Ringed Turtle Doves. The White Winged and Mourning Doves are shotgun only.

I have hunted the Eurasian Collard-Doves with my airguns and gotten a few during dove season. Just make sure to carry Binoc's to ensure what type of dove it is and if it turns out to be airgun legal you can take/harvest it. :)

By the way, that is a good group with that gun at that yardage. Good job. :)

Sure, it groups well, but it doesn't do you any good if you can't hit what you're aiming at. Not only did you miss the dime, you also missed that black dot! Better stick to the bow :bleh[1]: :rofl2:
