...at least in our yard. Had to grab the first gun I could find because this guy was fixin' to head out fast...both dogs were goin' off pretty loud and he'd already seen me.
Shot was about 15-18 yards and was right in the middle of the breast. On this chilly morning the 1740 "Stubby" tacklebox clunker was only puttin' them out at 430 fps. Pellet was a Crosman Premier Hollowpoint in .177. I hate like hell to go after anything when I'm this underpowered but, even though I'm not known as a pistolero, I felt like I could put good wood on this guy at that range.

Something about your post made me remember...I forgot to put "Graphic" in the heading.
Yeah, this is one I put together a while back using junk parts. You know, things with scratches that need a paint job, stripped out items that you have to re-tap, old wooden grips...all that stuff. Nice little gun to take fishing because it fits anywhere. Good little plinker. Details are on this forum somewhere.

PS Not much of a wound channel and no exit wound.

Does kinda look like a big ol' buck grackle though. Maybe I should have shown more of the body on that fella.
