I've tried to give my dad the right ag for his purposes but it has been a failing attempt. He doesn't like springers the break barrel action hurts his arthritis, he won't pump up a pcp. But I noticed he still likes his crosman 1377, so I ordered a custom shop 1322 with William peep sights ( he doesn't like scopes) and a LW barrel. It's a tack driver, I hope he can rid the backyard of hosps



I shot 8 hosps last week eyeing bluebird houses in the back 14, sitting in a lawn chair resting my feet on the picnic table bench seat, using my knee for a rest, 30-60 yd shots. This week all I see are blue birds, purple finches, rens, chicka dees, etc. My Mutant .22 is really an awesome gun.

Robert is right Hosps are House sparrows aka English sparrows, easily disingenuous-able from other sparrows, also they are non indigenous birds that take over anywhere city or country across North America. Some folks say let nature take its course, but I notice results by even taking out a small portion on personal property, let my yard be a small sanctuary for American birds is how I think.
