SWEET BABY JESUS I WANT THAT :shock: :!: :tonqe:

That Gamo big bore doesn't look bad either!

Big bores seem to be all the rage right now (have you seen the new Winchester? It looks good!) I wouldn't mind non-PAL big bore PCP. Punching bigger holes... would it have a flatter trajectory since the bullet is heavier or would it be the opposite because the bullet is slow?

I don't care if it's only BB's, it's really pretty and is full auto, I'm giddy like a school girl, it's like new high heels shoes for girls, has no purpose but it's pretty and fun. Which is good enough for me :wink:

Can't wait to see what else SHOT show brings us!

Trajectory is based on time to target not on weight of projectile.

True enough. The trajectory of a 500fps at the muzzle 250gr bullet over 40 yards will be much flatter however than a 7.4gr 177 pellet because the heavy bullet will retain its energy much longer. The 250gr will still be at 479 fps at 40 yards and 449fps at 100 yards where the 7.4gr will be 392fps at 40 and 267fps at 100 yards, according to chairgun. So the light pellet will drop a lot more.

April release date for the crosman, and no date for the gamo, which looks suspiciously Texanish....

I have the Legends MP-40. Full auto runs like a greased monkey. There's a pay-off to reading the owners manual :mrgreen:
Semi-auto is where this b.b. shooter shines~ very accurate for what it is.

Look at this cool Umarex Hammer!
https://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Umarex_Hammer_50_Caliber_Air_Rifle/4568
Looks bad buttock. Has what seems to be a removable air cylinder and multi-shot (2 or 3 maybe?)

Seems like a good idea for long range shooting! Sad we're such a small market and there's not more detuned guns available.
Well the truth is our gun laws SUCK, I hope it will someday go the other way but I won't be holding my breath.
