back to Gary
Shooting Sheds. You gotta love it...
For various ranges ....
With heat! Ahaaaaaaa.....
Is that a moving piggie target out
Sign me up. Jan. 15,16, 05 ... for
the "Erwin Invitational Air Pistol Shoot"
More to come ...
Bob's Chaparral 25
Just finished box 4 of #3. (guess I need to
take some time off for work).
It loves nitrogen, moved the bottle out to
the shop, so I can recharge easier and longer
Now I'm not limited to 80 cubic feet. The large
Airhog tank at 4500 lasted 8 days (took it over for a refill today)
Also had to have my scuba tanks topped off.
Think I'm hooked?
If you think I need it, could you send help?
You may want to start a 7 step program for
us Barnes shooters.
If anyone asks I like it.
My reply ....
Wow - Most excellent.
You're an animal !!!
1 pound = 7,000 grains. 5 pounds per box =
35,000 grains. 35,000 divided by 23.7 grains each = 1,477 ball
per box. Times 4 boxes = 5,907 rounds.
I'm impressed. I'm amazed. You da man Bob!!
How's the bolt O rings look?
Toss a "stripe" of light oil along
the lower side of the cocking slot window against the side of
the hammer. That will lube the hammer and the sear below.
I'm seriously pleased that you are pleased.
It's great to see someone enjoying
the product, and wringing it out. Bob has a corner of his shop
set up for a shooting station. Looks like a good supply of #3
buckshot among the other ammo. Bob's shooting his Chaparral 25
pistol off of Nitrogen. That tank should last awhile! ;?)
Nothing like a shooting port and clean
bench for climate controlled enjoyable shooting. Spotting scope
on the left at the ready. Chaparral 25 on bench. Cell phone to
complain to the manufacturer just in the event he misses a shot
"Target World" ... so many
... so little time ... ;?)
Fine set-up Bob. It's the customers
who really shoot their Barnes PCP's that find out just what was
built into them.
Because the ground falls away from
the shop area, the target base is elevated.
Bob tells me this is 12 shots (offhand)
at 25 meters with the pistol.
Two more groups of 12 shots offhand
with the Chaparral 25 pistol shooting 23.7 grain #3 buckshot @
about 809 fps. for approx. 34.45 fpe.
That's a potent tight unit for varmint
control. I'd say that was 12 for 12 on the crow/squirrel varmint
population if needed.
