Nice shooting, Kim.

The paper is where quality really shines through.

I didn't see your name on the list for next Saturdays meet. Presumably you'll be sending the Daystate down with Walter so we can test her out for ourselves :lol: :wink: :lol:

DaveD :D

That is wow and when I really absorb the fact you are talking yards not feet then really wow. Nice gun and very nice shooting.

Dave has the right idea!

I especially like the 80 yard group. Those target squares are 1" presumably?

I did get to hold the rifle if that counts :-)

All of those groups are impressive- very impressive. Shooting 1" at 100 yards with an air rifle - absolutely wonderful.
Well done Kim- who'd you get to do the shooting for you?
Just kidding. well done

Rich I had a Leapers 4x16x56 that I was going to put upon her. While zeroing the height adjustment the gear gave out.(it has seen its fair share of guns) I stole the 4x16x50 SunOptic off the 9mm Condor. Since bore hieght between the 2 is nearly an inch. Just installed and measured out 40yrds since it was previously zeroed for 50 with the Condor. Knew it would be on paper just not sure where. As can be seen on the target first rnd was at the very top then walked her down.

Dave yes she is accurate, but she isnt a paper puncher. With only being able to get two 5rnd clips thru her then refilling. She is not what I would call gopher blasting friendly. Predetor yes. Thought the Condor was hungry at 20 clean accurate shots. Regulated tether would be the paper punching way to go. Might consider finding a reg for the Great White.

And sorry guys the Wolverine will be with me this weekend. Sunday after wedding bit Saturday. The groom has his own 600m range that we (for money) have a shoot out. Twice a year we get together for one. So needless to say the Wolverine will be present. Last year the Condor 30 was present for the fall. The 9mm was for this spring. Great fun watching dedicated Powder Burners argue whos turn is next with one of my air guns.

As for the 90 and 100 groups they wouldve been better but I wasnt dressed accordingly and forgot my butt bag for shooting so used my sweat shirt under the gun butt. The 80 yrd group measures 0.786 outside. So yes she is more than capable of sub 1"moa. Shooter is the factor.

Yes Walter the squares are 1".

It was really good shooting nonetheless - I know some old guys can shoot. I 'seen' it with my own 2 peepers. With these rifles, follow-through is of paramount importance. Something that must be learned, normally.

Aint that the truth Daryl. :mrgreen: Gotta learn it right so it becomes instinctive. :shock: You know starting to get cold in the rain didnt help matters and on a better day sub 3/4" I see is very easily attainable with the gun. More trigger time with her and Im sure Id be under 5/8"@ 100m. With the 30cal Condor, bbl designed by rsterne and SMP my best is 13/16". Egronomics of a gun plays a big part. And the stock upon the Wolverine is a natural form to human egronomics where the Condor being modular, the shooter has to compensate.
Did I mention trying to keep excitment and heart rate down with this, is brutal upon the mental aspect to shooting this prestine weapon.... :lol: :lol: I for one am impressed for the first time getting behind the trigger. :drinkers:
