If anyone knows how to post video PM me your number and I will send to you. Pretty impressive seeing this hog just lay over quietly. Be interesting to see how it does with a group of pigs and how many can be taken before they scatter.

It's crazy what these air rifles come in any more. Congrats on the pig, can't wait to see the video ! I spend a lot of time on air guns of Arizona web sight. And some of these are rifles are very very impressive, in both what they can shoot, had how much they cost, the wood on some of them( iam a sucker for really nice wood) . But watching the videos on all of them makes me want to buy one badly, but my pocket book ( and wife) say noooooo wayyyyyyy.

I agree it can get expensive to enter the the Airgun world, but itís all relative when compared to other hobbies and addictions. You can spend $500 for a decent entry level PCP airgun. $800-1000 will get you a very nice setup, and the ďcatís meowĒ or Mac-daddy package can cost from $2000 - $3000+.

Compare those numbers with a new rifle setup or bow package and youíre pretty close. Golf (with greens fees & cart) and fishing (bass, fly, or saltwater) are hobbies that continuously cost money every time you participate. With airguns you can target shoot in your backyard and donít have to join a lease or club to participate.

Even if you bought a used PCP airgun setup for $350-400, you could get most of your investment back if you decided the sport wasnít for you.

He said he was dialed in at 50. Could easily go more. This pig was 30 yds and had complete pass through.

Only reason I do not still have my Air Force PCP's is they are all single shot guns... I wanted a repeater... I haven't fallen off into the big bore habbit.... YET!! But it's comin', no doubt.

What CB posted about them bein' addicting is FACT! They are WAY worse than "black guns" ever were... When I lived in town, I could take 'em into my back yard and wear out the squirrels and such and nobody ever knew anything about it... They are so quiet!!

I've taken several pigs with my .25 cal. repeaters and have some great slo-mo videos from a camera set up mounted to the back of my scope...

One tip for you Jason, when you video with your phone, turn it sideways with the record/home button always to the right and the video will fit your normal computer or TV 16:9 ratio screen, plus orientation will always be right... true for video or still shots.

Thanks guys for posting this up. Can't believe I didn't see it when you first posted it!
