    Air guns are not just for kids. So i wanted something to plink in the back yard so picked this up and a shoebox 4500 to fill it.

    Pretty cool looking. All I've ever shot was long ago and were Daisy's and Benjamin pumps. How does it shoot?

    That is the coolest looking air rifle that I have ever seen and it even has a bipod! Aesthetics aside, please tell us how it shoots!

    well off the bipod its a cheep Mcstar :) I can shoot 1 1/4" 10 shot at about 35 yards. I know the gun is capable of more but I don;t see the point in shooting it from a rest. And my groups are getting better.

    Its a .25 cal Airforce Condor SS made here in Texas. Its a single shot with a 3000 psi tank seems to shoot best from 2900-2000 psi. I am still playing with different weights of pellets and the adjustable pressure of the gun. With a 28 grain round nose pellet it went stright through both sides of a 55 gal roll around trash can and not one of the cheep thin ones its like 1/4" plastic at 100 feet on the lowest power setting lol. I assume about 30 shots per tank when I quit turning it up.

    While shooting the gun it makes a loud PiiIIINNNNGGG when the hammer hits the tank. But It only seems loud because your cheek is welded to the tank. I had my bro shoot it and at about 10 feet all you here is a slight Pfffffft and then Thwak of the pellet hitting the trap.

    Its decaffeinate a nice weapon and I have seen many photos of dime sized groups at 50 yards and decent groups out to 75 yards but I have not taken it out that far.

    that is one cool looking air gun.

    Hard to imagine 75yds, but it looks like a lot of fun and a heck of a lot cheaper then slinging led that far.
