Stuck a dime into my duct seal trap and started sniping from 12.5 yards. After only 3 shots there was a small hole through the dime which I found surprising. This was probably 10 shots stacked up on each other. CPHP 14.3’s at 715 fps.

It’s a Crosman Shockwave NP .22 w/ a Hawke Airmax 4-12x40 scope.

I’ve probably modded, fixed, or jerryrigged just about every part on the gun to get it shooting straight, but that’s half the fun for me.

Very nice for a crosman. I have stacked pellets a lot over the years, but these two stacks are the best I have ever done. They were only at 9 yds with my homemade SSP. On the left are four pellets and on the right was two.

Yeah, right - once saw a guy write, " When shooting offhand, I couldn't hit a barn from the inside."

He was quite a deadly accurate shot, offhand, compared to us mortals.

Duct seal. A clay like material that never dries out. Its a PIA digging the pellets out, but worth it.

Ah. I have a duct seal trap but haven’t tried digging pellets out. Doesn’t look fun at all.
