Easter Spudding Fun.

Unread postAuthor: rna_duelers » Sun Apr 08, 2007 4:47 am

The easter long weekend seemed a perfect time for spudding and chronographing.The air was crisp and there was a near endless supply of compressed air and ammo.What more could you want?

Got the guns out of the shed blew the dust off them and we were off.Met at a friends place wiht the oldies and had a blast,shooting goldballs apples and random objects.

I was going to chronograph MR.Wilson again but there was a dam problem with the piston so it was out of action after only about 20 shots.I chrono the small Thumper and i was quite impressed,on 120psi it could send a apple a good 130fps and about 80-90 meters which was amazing for its size.

Have a look at the pics,tell me what you think.

More pics to come.
