Default I got a new toy!!!

The Missus hates squireels getting into her garden, so I got this....

Crossman Classic 2100

Serious business, awe-inspiring style. The classic 2100 is a full size, hefty competitor that pumps up to maximum velocity, accuracy, and excitement.
Model 2100B

Power Source: pump
Caliber: .177 (4.5 mm)
Max Velocity: BB: up to 755 fps(230.2 m/*) Pellet: up to 725 fps(221.1 m/*)
Capacity: Reservoir: 200 BBs, Magazine: 17 BBs
Length: 39.75" (101 cm)
Weight: 4 lbs. 13 oz. (2.18 kg.)
Material: Barrel: Rifled steel, Stock and Forearm: Synthetic
I had one just like it when I was a kid, and I forgot how perful they are. There'* now a couple of BBs lodged in my garage door because about 12 layers of double corrugated cardbaord didn't even slow them down at only 4 (of 10) pumps.

And there'* another problem, too. The squirrels ain't happy...

Do you wear camo and face paint too?

I think you should know that, while fun for a while, it'* pretty much a losing battle. Those varmints breed at such a pace that there'* no winning.

I once shot seven in one morning, but it seemed the more I shot the more gathered in my yard. Eventually they overpowered me and held me hostage in an oak tree for several hours. Then they exchanged me for Hawaiin macadamia nuts. Apparently I wasn't nuts enough...



Actually the first sentence was true...

Anyway, your ultimate salvation is that the population varies in approximately 7 year cycles, depending on a number of factors, including predator levels, etc.

Yeah, I know I won't win, but it'* still a fun toy. Heck, I like squirrels. I sure don't wanna kill 'em. I like watching jump from tree to tree, running down the power lines, etc.

But, I finally had an excuse to get myself another BB gun!!

That'* as good a reason as any. I ended up buying a hi-power pellet rifle with scope. You know, the men'* version of the BB gun, when they can't admit that a BB gun is what they want. :P

It'* good fun. Plus the bonus is that the neighbors aren't sure about it being a real rifle or not and they leave you alone. It'* just safe policy to leave the crazy neighbor alone, lol.

I didn't want to spend twice as much for "high powered", but they had a cool one at Fleet Farm!! I knew this was a good one, had one before. But I do wanna get a scope, maybe this weekend. Their "new and improved" blade sights suck and are dang near impossible to adjust

No doubt about it, a good scope kicks asc. Especially for those of us that are no longer 20...
