    Sighting in Vietnamcams Air Rifle

    The young fellows Possom trapper and Sean Dundee have been having fun with this nice air rifle thanks VC.

    Possom trapper had a couple of missed shots at a rabbit last night so was bugging me last night to site the rifle in.

    The scope came off his crossbow and was fixed to the air rifle.They have been using the open sights till now and pretty impressive I must add.

    Tonight we went up too the sighting zone.And I sent possom trapper too the shed to get one of Gillies targets.

    By the time he had got back too the firing zone I had already bagged baby bugs

    Target set.

    We had too cease fire at one stage as one of those bloody chooks had become the target,it had put itself right in front of the rabbit target.

    We thought the rabbit target had enough holes in it so I sent possom trapper back too the shed to get another of Gillies targets.

    Then it was up the track too bag something,I spotted a hare aimed at head and bloody Neckshotagain with my .22 meanwhile possom trapper waits for his next vermin but that was all for tonight.

    Might have to site my .22 in a little better,seems too be shooting necks when I'm targeting the head

    Back fillets and hare legs recipes soon,I want a few more hare back fillets yet before the cook up

    Or maybe you need to let PT stalk up and shoot em with the air rifle

    Good to see it being used, its got a long creepy trigger like most air rifels ay, Its not to bad when you get used to the amount of travel before it lets off tho.

    Good work Dundee.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire

    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Brilliant. Does PT let young Sean have a go? Seems that he is carrying everything.
