Predator International
« on: May 16, 2015, 02:44:33 AM »
So today was a "Great Day!"

I live here in Colorado, as quite a few of you know.  Well Predator International is also here, not more than 15 minutes from me.  Quite a few of you know how I love their new PDG line of pellets.  Well my good friend Dave (dcorvino) on the GTA knows this better than most, being that he lives in MA., and he made today possible.  I have touted and posted my adventures with the PDG's, with P-Dawgs falling to them.  Well, a few weeks ago, Dave actually contacted Rich Dixon of Predator International.  He told him how I have been shooting the PDG line and what I had done with them.  Rich had in turn emailed me and invited me to a meet and greet---whenever I was in the area.  Well that day was today.  I met Rich and Jay---the 2 who make sure we get our Predator Polymags, JSB's, and PDG's.  There were so many pellets---SO MANY PELLETS!  I could feel the lead poisoning in my blood.  Very clean operation.  We talked about things to come---very exciting things to come.  I can't disclose at this moment, but you all will be very happy.  After we talked, I did a show-and-tell with my completed Disco.  They thought it looked very cool.  I plan on taking Rich and Jay with me on a P-Dawg shoot.  So stay tuned.

Rich gave me a care package...well...because he cares.  Thanks to Rich and Jay, and a special thanks to Dave on the GTA and his tenacity.  LOL!

Side Note:  No pics of the warehouse at this time or of Rich and Jay, but here is my care package with the Predator GTO 5.5gr alloy .177's (they gave me the 4 tins in the 3rd pic).  Apparently these alloys are being used by some high school ROTC shooting teams for the 10m shoots and they are out shooting the schools that are using lead.

That is so awesome to go where they make the pellets. And get a tour of the plant. And a bonus. Good job, please keep us posted.  :-*
We need to keep going and have fun doing it.

Actually just the warehouse.  The plant is in the Czech Republic.  But still was very cool for them to give me their time.

I was the same way at first...didn't care to buy any of their pellets, more because everyone was using them, and I didn't want to follow the masses.  But I have shot the Polymags, PDG's and the JSB's and got no complaints. 

Thanks, my Disco is finally where I want it to be.  Maybe a new trigger or trigger group, but I am very happy with it.
