He was really having a screamer day.............Airguns are a whole new world that I've just barely been introduced to.

Impressive shooting!!!

Airguns can be deadly accurate, too.

Imagine shooting a barrel that virtually never gets dirty. No powder fouling, no copper fouling and very little if any lead fouling even with soft bullets.

I'd love to have a Jack Haley rifle someday... :D

I got to have one of them. The only problem is air. The run very high air presure and you have to have your tanks filled at a scuba place or drop alot of bucks in a compreser.

You can also pick up a handpump for about $200.

Mine is a "Benjamin". It will go to over 3000psi and is great for "topping off" my gun. It is a workout to fill with a handpump but if that's all you have then it's great!

A 4500psi scuba tank is the way to go but can cost quite a few dollars. A good tank will last a lifetime.

One of those in a 6mm caliber might be nice to have for those close pdogs if it's quiet. Hard to tell how quiet they were in the video.

Lots depends on the barrell length, bore, air charge, and velocity.

Mine is .308cal with a 20" barrel... it almost sounds like a muzzleloader! Closest thing to a 6mm would likely be .25cal.

You really can't effectively shoot copper bullets so .243 rifle bullets won't work. Soft lead, cast bullets work great!!!

Some airguns can be dialed back and shoot very hard with little noise. Bigbore airguns aren't quiet!!! :D
