Jim thats the way i load mine its trial and error will make you eventually find the proper technique that will works best.
Murray let the underside barrel section of the gun rest on your thigh and press down with a flat palm, i have a red dot on mine and that makes it a little more difficult because you don't want to be pressing down on the scope but i found a way that works and have no problem, trial and error boys :wink:

Yah Ace I finally got to that solution after the excitement and pain when I first got it!
But occasionally I will bring it out for a quick round when changing over the laundry and forget to watch the fleshy bits.
Still love shooting it even after it bit me.

Keep you powder dry and your seals oiled.
Shoot straight and safe.

Just an update to wrap this thread up (hate to leave things unfinished).
After the feedback I got here it made me realize that I'm not a good candidate for this mod. Think it's best left for those with possible mobility/dexterity issues and/or those that don't mind drilling a somewhat large hole into their guns.

Returned the pen and will instead practice loading the pellets using some of the techniques mentioned here. I have hardly used the P17 since getting it (as well as all of the other guns in the collection) and I'm sure that with practice loading pellets won't be a problem. Guess Plinkercase's concept of practice, practice, practice and patience applies to more than just hitting targets.

Will leave it for the Stampeders to be in charge of fumbling, they seem pretty good at it.

Thanks all for the help, it was a good exercise.

No, no, it was bigger than that! It looked like a weird monkey-dog thing!
