    any airgunners on here?

    have just really got into airguns but have found them to be awesome for the small block small game hunting and cheep practice also
    at 1st I got a gamo springer but that soon made way for the FX typoon 12pcp .22 and just recently a hatsan at44 .177 pcp
    I'm going to get a 25cal when money allows

    its costing me quarter the cost of a 22 per shot and kills bunny's just as well as 22 inside of 60m also

    defiantly my new hobby
    5 shots at 30m

    There's an NZ airgun forum
    nzairgun.com - Index

    Good on you.
    I find my .22 cal 16 ft.lb springer is not a patch on the killing power of a .22 subsonic. Rabbits Definitely needs a head shot. They just hopp away with a chest shot. Predator polymag pellets knock them over a bit better but not emphatic kills. A precharge might be a lot better if you can double the ft.lb.

    The airgun is a specialist weapon for lifestyle blocks and has got me a lot of rabbits where I wouldn't have been able to shoot with a .22RF.

    I'm already a member mate have been for a few months
    that's why I got into them we have 3 acres here at home but also I have small blocks local I can hunt but only realy safe with an airgun
    I take body shots all the time (if I'm not rested) but I'm also shooting closer to 30ftlb and its ok I think the guns shooting at about 27ftlb with 16gn jsb's but I shoot 19gn barrcutta hunters I still prefer head shots though
