Hi, All! I'm kinda new here. I mostly lurk and grab a little tech info when I see something good.
On that note,... I had gotten a .177 Ruger Airhawk awhile back. I couldn't get the dang thing to consistently stay on paper at 10 yards. I was about to trash the AirTurd. However, with a little research here and on the DWC boards I've got it all smoothed out and making 1 to 1.5 inch groups at 25 yrds(depending on how i'm shooting that day). Its making around 880 fps with CHCPs.
I popped out yesterday for some fine tuning and what did I see,... 2 squirrels in the garden. 1st was 20 yrds - Headshot. 2nd took off another 15 yards and hid in my Okra bushes. I couldn'y see his head for a clean shot so I put one in just behind his front leg into the heart/lung zone. He did the dance, but it was all by the time I walked over. I decide to leave the "fine tuning" alone and shot cans and plastic pop bottles for another hour.
