I've been putting off getting a new one. My lease ends soon and I don't want to invest in a rifle I won't be able to use.

Found out yesterday though that we ill be resigning for another couple of years, so I'm going pellet gun shopping!

Got a well used Red Ryder, but I did not name my son after it.

A Couple of Benjamin pump rifles in good shape. One is a .177 of recent manuf. It's o.k. and shoots well. The other is a vintage all brass Benji. Don't shoot it much, .22 cal. rifle. And we have one old non working .22 cal. of 60's vintage that belonged to the wife. It was worn out once and rebuilt by her dad. When we got married, it came packed in the luggage with ther. Seems her brother was not much for guns, so her dad gave it to her. We used it till we wore it out agin back in the 70s and 80s. Her dad tried to rebuild it again, but it never worked right. I was lucky to find another like it in a pawn shop.

Gamo 220 Hunter .177 pellet rifle I got for quite pest control. It surprised me that it easily shot through both sides of a full can of soda with an advertised 1000fps rating.

Yea...the GAMO brand does live up to it's velocity standards...

I've chronographed my GAMO Magnum .177 using a ProChrono Digital ... 980 to 1000 fps was the norm.



The Competition Electronics ProChrono Digital Chronograph measures velocities between 22 and 7000 feet per second, records 9 strings of fire with review of 99 shots each and computes statistics for each string (high, low, average, number of shots, standard deviation and extreme spread). Other features allow you to delete the current shot or string, and you can switch from standard to metric measurements. Chronograph includes plastic diffusers, 4 rods and is powered by a 9 volt battery (not included). This chronograph has a mounting hole thread for a ¼x20 mount. Be careful to prepare adequately for windy conditions.

Technical Information: Competition Electronics ProChrono Digital Chronograph

Accuracy: +/-1% of measured velocity or better
Dimentions: 16" x 4" x 3-¼"
Measurement Units: Feet per Second or Meters Per Second
Operating Temperature Range: 32°F to 100°F
Tripod Mount: ¼ x 20 threaded hole
Velocity Range: 21-7000 fps

Printer Compatable: Yes with optional Digital Remote Control with IR Port (Competition Electronics part number CE14000). The Digital Remote Control will allow you to print directly to a HP IR compatable pocket printer. The Digital Remote enables all velocity and statistical information to be downloaded to a PC via "HyperTerminal" (a component of MicroSoft Windows). The Digital Remote allows the ProChrono Digital to be operated remotely, from the shooting bench, via a 20 foot cable.

Yea...really !!

They are a rodent pest and are treated as such !

They tunnel into everything and chew on wiring...which can cause a fire.

Fair Game...

Hey Shooter, what was your range on these two? Did you use the scope or open sights? Is that a double tap on the squirrel? If it is, that's fast loading for a single shot, lol!! Those are nice clear photo's as well! What camera are you using?

Really don't remember the yardage on these two...I shoot so many of them.

I use the 3x9 scope that came with the rifle...( pic above ).

It usually only takes one shot to drop 'em...but if they are still twitching when I get to them,
I will usually end the suffering with another shot.

The photo's are from my cell phone...a Motorola Razr.
