Air guns

I’m a “if you shoot it, eat it” kinda guy. However, during the lockdown when all the restaurants had shut down along my street, a bunch of rats started hanging around under my bird feeders eating dropped sunflower seeds and other bird food. I hate rats. Used my air rifle and knocked off one. Amazingly, the word must have spread and they all disappeared after that one kill. Truly smart critters.

Did y’all see that homemade “gun” that guy in Japan made to assassinate the former prime minister? Geez, that thing was a portable canon.

For the dragon claw (.50 cal)

On low power, the 200-grain bullets ranged from a low of 562 f.p.s. to a high of 613 f.p.s. The average was 598 f.p.s., which gives us a muzzle energy of 158.85 foot-pounds.

On high power, the 200-grain bullets ranged from 687 f.p.s down to 610 f.p.s., with an average of 640 f.p.s. That’s an average muzzle energy of 181.95 foot-pounds.

I got the above from a article about the gun. The actual specs from were I bought it are posted below.
