From the Mailbag – .177 vs .22 for hunting

Heres another very typical question that comes up over and over. Since weve been talking about hunting and hunting airguns, it seems to be a good time to address it. The question is whether .177 is better than .22 for small game hunting. Most recently I received an email that was very well crafted …

Basic airgun Hunting Guidelines

So here’s the rub and it comes down to the difference of what “can” be done and what “should” be done. Can a 500 FPS airgun kill a squirrel? Under the right circumstances, and with enough shots, sure. But, is it the right airgun for the job? Not in my opinion. FPS vs FPE Let’s start with FPS (feet …

Max ML .357 vs 2L coke bottle. Now you see it...

The Evanix Max ML .357 Bullpup steals the show!

As I mentioned in my previous article, I’ve been away from the office and out at our TX ranch. It affords me the wonderful opportunity to shoot just about whatever I want, whenever I want, as far as I want. That’s not something that I get to do back in Havasu unless I want to take a drive. In TX, I can …

Gamo G2 taking out pests in West Texas

Testing your Skills in the Field

My plan was to take some time while out here in the West Texas desert to pull out the big bores for a little testing. Unfortunately, weather and schedules have prevented that from happening.

From the Mailbag – PCP inherently flawed or just misunderstood?

I’ve been hit with several questions recently about PCPs and shot count. I’ve been posting a lot of PCP videos so I guess the questions make sense. There’s a general consensus amongst new airgunners that PCP airguns are somehow “crippled” by the fact that you have to fill them with high pressure air …

What to do when you get a new airgun – Part 3

Now that I’ve gotten through the break in period, it’s time to see where we are for velocity and consistency, and also accuracy. So it’s back to the chronograph to see if the break-in period has accomplished our desired goals. We need to see more shot to shot consistency, and a much lower extreme spread. …

What to do when you get your new airgun? – Part 2

There are some common mistakes made by new airgunners that cause them some real headaches as they first start out. The biggest misconception is that spring / gas ram airguns shoot just like, or take less skill and technique to shoot, than traditional firearms. Nothing could be further from the truth. …

What to do when you get your new airgun? – Part 1

This is a very common question that I get all the time. What do you need to do when you get your new airgun? There are some who would say that you need to completely dismantle it and rebuild it. Others will say that you need to take it out and immediately put 200 pellets through it. Well, over the years …

RWS Rifles

If I had it to do all over again.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. If I could go back and change my airgun purchasing path, would I? Well, I probably would not, because I may not be where I am today if I did. But, not many folks have the passion and the patience to keep beating their heads against the wall trying to make a living shooting …

Airgun Hunting Medium and Large game

Buying your first Airgun – Part 6

I know I left you all hanging splitting things right in the middle of the Medium Game section, so I hope that this final segment pulls it all together and makes the wait worth it.
