Obviously not good enough to take head shots!! Giving airgun hunters a bad name.

ok but in my opinion it didnt seem quite as bad as your making out,yes saw him leaning on the tree for some shots that could have been better but to head shot live quarry every single time from standing un-supported is a tall order imo,not sure i have met anyone that has never winged something in their life,as i say not up for an arguement jmo thats all :thumbs:

Theres winging something and then theres purposely aiming for chest and even "belly" he diddnt once attempt a headshot, seems he was just happy with hitting the bird, i must be watching a different vidoe to you :hmm: as for the "standing" excuse....................Sit on the floor if your finding it hard :thumbdown:
Not trying to sound "funny" by the way bud, but come on, thats bordering on the cruel side to me. each to their own i guess, everybodys entitled to their oppinion.

What makes you say that? I only saw one or two that lived more than a second or so.
He pulled off some startling shots. Most of which would have produced very good headshots and heart/lung shots

Bloody good Marksman if you ask me :yes:

Giving airgun hunters a bad name. imo its you giving the airgunners a bad name by bringing that clip to light on this forum as if the antis dont already have enough ammo (pardon the pun) you post that for all to see knowing full well that antis trawl through this site looking for posts like these to use against us :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored:

There was nothing wrong with that shooting. What most people forget WHEN SHOOTING UP A STEEP ANGLE you MUST aim LOW for the pellet to hit where you want to.

Yes the guy did take some obviously low shots, like the one where the crosshair was on its arse. but I bet that particular shot took out the birds heart and it was dead before it hit the ground.

You have just basically agreed with me there, if in your opinion this clip could be used as "ammo" then that would suggest that you think there is some thing wrong with the shooting in it??
