This is starting to remind me of Carl the groundskeeper from Caddyshack. Ed, you should try singing the Green Berets song as you plot against the evil varmints. "Silver wings upon their chest..."

Well, I put aluminum foil around the tree and the damn thing went above it to get more bark. Maybe the squirrel or could be the rabbit.
I go out at dusk and there is the freaking squirrel in the  middle of the yard.......equipped with my silenced S&W Victory pistol. Fired at his head at about 20 yds. He ran off and I fired 4 more times at him as he ran off. I hope I missed him with the other 4. I do not want him or the freaking rabbit to suffer but I damn sure want them gone! I am disgusted I missed him the first shot......missing him running would be expected Smiley

I made up a song to sing to Sidney, and yes, she's sick of it............ "we got a rabbit and squirrel infestation...invasion...we gonna have a rodent elimination, decimation, eradication,......oh yea...oh yea....baaaaby""

My squirrels must be on vacation. Maybe their cousins invited them to SC to eat fig trees. Haven't seen them for a few days.

LOL guys. Matter of fact I actually did listen to a new Truth with you know what today  Smiley. I also used another reference album (of MINE) .....Unknown Hinson.

As for the beer, Steve, nope they were unopened....they also were a Cobra and Busch Light...both had been sitting out by the faucet since last Horn Fest! Pretty sure they were past their prime! Have a couple left. The Gamo with even the lightest pellets just blasted through at 25 yards. It's hard to get a grip on how powerful it is. No, it's not a big bore PCP but it sure is not a toy. Helen had a hard time cocking it. Sidney is barely able to. Needs to sit down and use both arms. Kids can forget it. Most women too, probably. 5-10 shots quickly in a row would be impossible for Helen or Sidney at first but they might learn a technique if they wanted to spend the time. I think the cocking force is 32 lbs.....  It was too windy yesterday and today to judge exactly how accurate it is. Even in a stiff wind at 25 yards it's plenty "good enough" and under good conditions may be superb. it hints in that direction.

That refurb Gamo is practically free for the level of performance. Thanks Steve, for making me think about air rifles! I have a squirrel  and a rabbit that have been hanging around our fig tree Mac gave us. It is very old and never thrived until it came here.....and one of those bastards ate all the bark off the bottom foot or so and all the leaves that were coming out have died. I really hate killing animals unless for meat but those damn rodents are going to die and I'm not fooling around with the air rifle. Silenced  .22. It's on now.

Knowing Ed, substituting water for beer would be "cheating", probably a different density times pi PBR squared. But, he was surely playing Radar Love during the testing, what with baselines and reference and all.

Ed, I hope you drank that beer, then filled the can with water before you shot it.

Well, I could not stand it............I got one (or two) of these........

It's awesome and quiet. It is quiet enough that it tricks you into thinking it may not be "powerful"......oh, but it goes through both sides of a steel coffee can at 25 yards. It punches through a full beer easily at 25 yards. The phone book was no match.............we need a new one now. I have not mounted the scope and may never do it. The open sights are great and I doubt I'll ever shoot at anything farther than 25 yards....I may change my mind later.

Check out the AVA Ulravalve.  I really like mine.  Makes plenty of power and doesn't generate much heat.  The transformers are big and hardly get warm.  Great build quality.  A combo of solid state bass and tubey mids and highs.  Nice price...

My squirrels have gone into hiding. No activity for two days. Tomorrow I'm going to flood their home and see if any pop out. It's probably too much to ask that the eagles found them.

Yes, the CO from the exhaust worked. Never saw him again. I would like to think it was a somewhat humane way to go.
