I just picked up a Gamo -- first BB gun I've owned since my Crossman .177 over 25 yrs ago. When I first fired that Gamo I almost *censored*!! Sounds just like a .22 going off! Looks just like one too.....
I could pump that Crossman 30 times & not even come close to the 1 pump firepower of that Gamo. Ain't technology great?!?! I got those Raptor "real gold" pellets that are supposed to go 1200 fps!! Best BB gun in history!
i havent tried the raptor pellets yet in mine.the regular pellets have been workin fine on my skunk problem!
Gamo-shmamo! No BSing with BBs in this vid. This from an email making its way around.
- Turn the sound up.........you can hear the bullet head back.
Watch in full screen to see it better. This is a very, very lucky sportsman. The guy is shooting a 50 CAL. Watch the dust when he fires. The target, a steel plate, was 1000 yards away. You can hear the ping of the hit, and then the bullet comes back and hits his earmuffs on his head.. The footage is amazing. You can hear the bullet as it tumbles through the air
on its course back toward the shooter. He's lucky it hit the dirt first .. you can see the puff of dirt in front of him. He is okay, and obviously very lucky. The bullet grazed his temple.
