I got my safety repaired by Dave Slade when I presented the rifle to him back in Oct and picked it up at the GOB. Anyways I decided to switch from cpl to 8.4 jsb's. I have an old school beeman starlight 2-7X scope. I love the combo. While I cant get every shot in a dime @ 30 yards...I can get a bunch in there if I shoot enough pellets...and still keep the wanderers well with in 1.25".

Shooting this rifle is a challenge as its unforgiving if you don't do your part. I did another session tonite and couldn't get a group to settle. Its all about the hold. Its all about doing everything the same.

I got bored and switched to free handed shooting. I started shooting at a 1.25" killzone. And while I didn't know it down every time @ 35 yards...I did manage to kill it a handful of times... and each handful shot occurance...the shot felt real good.

I am going to hunt some squirrels this year with this combo. I am planning on keeping within 20-25 yards max. Perhaps alittle closer. Springers don't shoot the same when you aim high. This I will be practicing on the walnuts...from my black walnut tree....

anyways I hope all is well...and keep on shooting..
