I appreciate that you appreciate my interest in the 40. But My first interest is in the P-rod, or a .25 Mrod (like someone I know who owns one now). VarmintAir's recent blogs about the P-rod make it seem the perfect foil for my needs: sufficient power, and very good accuracy, plus relatively light weight. If I'm adult about it (airguns?) I'll prioritize, and not be swayed. P-rod it is. Phew! that was close!
