I am sure you have all seen this but being a newbie and searching the net for info I came across this on Youtube.

It is almost unbelievable to me that they are making such long shots with airguns! Wonder what they are using?

New project for you Gene

Airguns can make these shots no problem and even longer ones.. depending on the power of the gun, how well you know how to use it, or how long you 've practiced with it.  

This type of shooting is crazy though.  If you noticed in a couple of their crow shoots there were apartment buildings and windows right behind the crow or the light pole they were on.  These guys are nuts.. I 'm sure some of those pellets ended up where they weren't supposed to because they go right through the crow most of the time depending on the distance.  And there were almost always people around or in public areas.  They 've been lucky so far.  These pellets have to land somewhere, and who knows if they 've hurt some people or property already.  I wouldn't doubt it, and they woulnd't know it either if the pellet hit someone by accident on its way down.  That's a big city.. I 'm sure not everything makes the papers.

Welcome to the airgun world.  It sounds like you will be addicted like the rest of us in no time!  hehe

I noticed the same thing.  They sure were not very concerned about a proper backstop.  In fact, as I searched youtube and watched many of the videos I saw many people not using safe backstops.  In one video it appeared that his backstop was his neighbors house...  I  showed this video to my daughter and explained what a big safety issue it was.

As for addicted... I saw a posting in the Bargain Gate informing me of the Gamo pellet sale..  I ordered three tins and don't even have a rifle yet!

I do not agree with their safety andI  think they are nuts to do what they are doing. I just like the rifle.

Hi there,they're usin EDGun "Matador" and HooliGun rifles made in Russia,the power of the first one can reach easily 100 Joules of power.
They're training a lot for long distant shots,'cos the target is always crows,most of the times they're shooting from inside the car.

Thanks for the welcomeing!
My favorite targets ar crows,pidgeons,collar doves and other birds you use to call pests;
her where I live (Italy) there's no clear regulations for the different use of air rifles(only sports activity are strictly regulated),
so most of the times my shoots "hit the center" either I don't have my camera or the preys are not reachables in any way.
I'll try my best to share some of them with you all.

Coming N_Strike.....it`s been 3 days since you joined us......we want to see some critters killed by your airgun!!!!!!   The best part of the Italian law...."No clear regulations for the different use of air rifles....".

Does that mean air rifles are considered same as firearms?

Not always, only if it's more powerfull than 7,5 Joules and used outside your property(only for plinkin...),
then if you're within your property, no one has the right of doin anything about it.
You can go shootin also to friends' land but the point is you need firearms permission to take it out your home!!!
It's not mentioned in any law the hunting with air powered weapons but in your land it'not precisely prohibited to shoot some animals.
We dont have pests or would be better to say we do have but it's not recognised as a problem!?!
It's so complicated to have a full power air rifle that any way you try there's always something wrong,so I bought it in another country and solved the problem!!!
Whatever will happen I'll just say "I didn't know"  Smiley

Yeah. Thats just unacceptable. The background is a cityscape...windows, cars, people...not good. The crows around here go down when there is a safe shot. I would never shoot in a city like that. Not good. Thats one of the reasons why regulations are born.
