to do some ground squirrel hunting, and I will be hunting my .22 Disco right along with some guns that cost five and six times more. I did the same thing last year with my .177 Mac1 Disco, and never once did I wish I was hunting with one of my other guns. They don't have the high dollar wood and finish of some of my other guns, but where the rubber meets the road for me, is accuracy, and in that department, both of my Disco's hold their own very well against some of my shiny, gorgeous high dollar PCP's.
I'll have a bunch of video clips and stills to share when I get back from the hunt. The Discovery is a great hunting rifle. Accurate, light, fast handling, and powerful enough to take ground squirrels at 70+ yards. It really doesn't get much better than that.
Is it a show piece? Not really, but it does what it was designed to do very, very, well.
