    Default So Who is Shootin Their Airguns for Their Plinkin Fix??

    Being that there is such a shortage of reloading components, rimfire ammo, and center fire stuff...

    How many of you fellas are plinking with your airguns??

    I have shot airguns most of my life. They keep my rifle shooting skills sharp as can be. I use my airguns for pest removal, hunting, paper punching, plinking, and field target. That field target game has made me deadly when it comes to head hunting squirrels.

    I squirrel hunt with either .177 or .22 and always go for a head shot. I try for the area by the ear as if my shot falls alittle more toward the nose I am still in moa of noggin and if it falls alittle more toward the neck...welp that too is an anchored squirrel.

    BTW I shoot precharged pneumatics and springers...

    I have rabbits in my backyard on a regular basis, one in particular, I call him #6.
    Humane head shot at 45 ft is easy.

    My air rifle fix comes after the flowers bloom. Bumble bees.

    Might take a look at our February Challenge <http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/showth...rary-Challenge >

    Air gun or rimfire, target in the first post, and you have until March 10 to enter.

    Give a whirl !

    Guilty. Broke down and bought an RWS 34. It provides a quality imitation of the real thing. It helps with the basics of proper shooting technique and saves me the 50 mile round trip to the range.
    I did luck into a vendor that has 22 lr but the cheapest fodder is almost $9 per 50.

    Besides I don't want to burn up all my rimfire. Half of it is for my grown daughters if the need ever arises.
