Who needs cartridges ? All you need is lead and air. Pics to follow [Linked Image]

Yessir and no NFA red tape to suppress it to near silence. What air rifle are you using?

AirForce Texan .308 shooting a 144 gr hollow point that is very similar to one of Ranch Dogs .257 Roberts designs.

Another good hog! Regular scope/thermals on the pcp air guns? Same type recoil as firearm?


I had my patience tested... I'm negative.

I am thinking about going this direction, where do you get your gun charged?

Can you give some details about your gun like how far you can shoot it accurately and can you simply buy a large tank to keep at home to recharge the tank onboard tank? I’m ready to pull the trigger on one but their are so many brands, calibers etc etc and I’ve been confused o the entire subject.

Edit, How quite is it?

Never thought about using an airgun to hunt hogs, but this seems like fun and a challenge.

Nice! Got a couple of PCP rifles myself, but 25 caliber is my largest.

On rifles such as this one, yes.

On magnum springer air guns, no. Those require scopes rated for airguns due to the double recoil.

I shoot sub-moa groups at 100 yards with mine. Texas requires a 30 cal or larger to be legal for deer. Yes you can buy larger tanks that are 30 min or 60 min scba that fill to 4500 psi. I rent a bulk nitrogen cylinder that is 6000 psi and use it to fill the smaller more portable tanks I take to the range or to my lease. I use them to keep a smaller paintball tank that I can take with me to my blind to fill the gun. As far as brands, there are two manufactures of PCP Airguns in Fort Worth area. Extreme Big Bore Airguns is in Mansfield and AirForce Airguns is in Burleson. Both company's make quality products. There are other manufactures but check out the reviews before you buy.
