Title: Think I have enough?
Post by: woody67 on April 11, 2013, 03:37:23 PM
I think this should cover me for a while....

8 tins of JSB 18gr .22cal for my 2400kt pistol

5 tins of JSB Kings .25 cal for my marauder
3 tins of Polymags .25 cal for my marauder
1 tin of benjamin hunters for marauder, although I doubt I'll even open the package. I have seen horrible groupings from them out of mrods...

4 tins of Baracuda 31gr .25 cal for marauder, although I bought them for the AAA Condor (they will be too light for this particular gun, but Tony is putting in a one-piece tophat that has different inserts that regulate different power levels. It's great, because I can go from shooting 70+ grain slugs in one minute, change the tophat insert, and I'll be shooting 25 and 30gr pellets the next.)

How are you filling your Marauder?

 :-*

I have an SCBA tank with a Joe Broncato fill adapter setup...Actually I haven't gotten it filled yet, and I haven't shot my Marauder yet.(It is fully modded already though. I'll put a picture up in a bit. I hadn't thought about doing that until now)

I called the Miami Fired Department and was directed to the Lt. who is -get this-in charge of Air!!  I am not kidding! He is responsible for maintaing their 'air stuff'....
Anyway, I called him up because there is nowhere else in South Florida that I could find who is able to fill a tank to 4500PSI. One lady who owned a dive shop that I called didn't even believe that I had a tank that holds 4500psi. She didn't even know what SCBA tanks are...

So I called the LT--who couldn't have been nicere--and he said he didn't have a problem filling my tank as long as it was up to code. He asked if it was for training, so I told him it was for filling airguns..he thought it was cool, so I told him I'd bring a small one with me for him to check out. I'll bring him the 2400kt pistol so he can actually take some shots with it. Look for him to be a member here starting sometime next week!!! :D ;D :D

now that you have the .25 you need some bullets to go with the pellets

Indeed....

I'm going to get a bunch of Jerry's 7 Rings Slugs for the Condor

but I'm also considering getting a savage in .308 and .234
Also a Ruger 10/22 just for fun.

good connection on the air tank fills Woody... I use the local FD-house for both co2 and HPA, they have both at that house... my wife makes e'm homemade cakes and cookies and I get all the air and co2 I need.

And yes, any fire dept. that has substantial amounts of SCBA apparatus in the field will have an "air guy" in charge of equipment and safety, calibrations and etc.

Nice recruiting job Woody  ;)


Hard to believe that in S. Fl. you would have trouble finding a dive shop capable of filling to 4500!! But, hey it is Florida, so I can believe anything  :D

The highest fill pressure I was able to find in all the diveshops that I called was 3700 I think.

I'm going to buy a shoebox compressor (as long as they fill that high) someday, but while I have the fire house close now I think I'll wait until I move!

cool beans and do some polling of PCP shooters on those shoebox compressors, I have heard more bad than good on them and... did you know they require a 150 psi shop compressor in tandem with the shoebox unit to operate?

HPA compressors are much like helicopters, designed to beat themselves into scrap piles  :D

Settled. I will not be buying a shoebox....

No, you do NOT have enough.

Woody, have to ask, why no wadcutters?
Title: Re: Think I have enough?
Post by: woody67 on April 12, 2013, 05:04:37 PM
Woody, have to ask, why no wadcutters?

I don't have a use for them...I like to target shoot, but I like to hunt with the same precision and exactness. I wouldn't use wadcutters for hunting, so it would seem pointless to use them period.
For me, a bullseye on a target with a pellet I can't use for anything else feels pointless.
That's just me though, and we all know I'm a bit weird.
                      :P

I bought a tin of wadcutters for Mal the other day. They will go with the 357 I bought for her birthday present. (I'll be painting the grips and possibly the barrel cover pink...it will be unique. Note: it is not my gun, but I do expect you guys to make fun of me for having another pink gun! :D)

I think the improved accuracy of the wadcutters will be good for getting her to really focus on each shot. The gun she shoots now groups like a 12guage.

Woody, great response. I was buying pellets last night, I passed on the wadcutters this time for almost the same reason. But after I got home with my pellets, I had to remind myself that I wasn't sure if my 2240 and 2289g have what it takes to to kill tree rats and rabbits.

Good deal, shootin is only fun if you hit what you aim at, she will like that 357 and the wadcutters are made for makin clean cut holes in decent paper targets (heavier stock than printer paper)

I know a stock 2289 will take nutters and wabbits at 10-15 yds. cant speak for the 2240

Nope, you don't have enough. Not even close.
You can never have enough ammo.

Yea, what he said. "They" are on the bandwagon to ban lead. Buy as many pellets as you can afford. When they are gone, they are gone.Then you have to make your own. :-X

Enough?  Nah,  shoot a tin full, buy 10 to replace it!   :D  (Yeah, I know you don't get as many .25 as .177 in a tin, so, maybe buy 20?  LOL

Nah, I won't.  I got two Crosman 760s with pink stocks.  Stopped by a Wal-Mart to look at an airsoft pistol for a female friend before heading home today.  Spring piston, single-shot, S&W CS45 "Pink".  A YouTube vid of it - [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZ7GQcysxvQ#]SMITH & WESSON CHIEF SPECIAL AIRSOFT[/url]
She has this kit - http://marinesairsoft.crosman.com/armory/MCKT01 (http://marinesairsoft.crosman.com/armory/MCKT01) and had fabricated a "sling" from fabric, it's not practical.  I found a shoulder strap I'd gotten in some auction stuff we are going to try to upgrade her Sling situation.  When I sent her the picture she loved that it was "hot pink".


As for no Wadcutters, heck, I'm getting to be the opposite, as punching paper is most of what I do, so I've got more wadcutter pellets than RN & the odd ball stuff.

".22 JSB UltraMag   (26.4 gr)"

Wadcutter shape, looks awesome!  Me better think about adding to my next order.  LOL
