're zero

Recommended Posts

Took Craig's gun out this morning to  're zero as scopes had been took off other day . Didn't take very long  and then I drove to a few feeders and spotted one at furthest feeder from me so crept along tree line and got to where I was confident of a shot . And just as I'm about to shoot a bloody cock pheasant  flies up from god knows where and squirrel legs it.i walked to a small plantation and spotted several deer legging it in opposite direction  and caught site of movement  at base of a tree . Squirrels playing chasey  around tree (pairing up) .lined one up and smack it curls up at base of tree  and other just froze on side of tree  . It soon joined it's mate on the floor as accupel walloped it in napper things went quiet so made way back to feeders and   2 feeding together    .lined one up and hit it in  heart lung area and it ran a few yds  then stopped dead .. called it a day as rain started to get heavy

Top marks billy. Rapids are still one of my favourite air guns. Also the wtc Simmons, a great scope as well, got a 3.5-10x50 on one of my rimfires and it never shifts zero👍.
