When I first move to the midwest about 18 years ago, I had hunted a lot in the US, Europe, South Africa, for a lot of different game. But I’d not done any real squirrel hunting. What I mean by “real” squirrel hunting is I hadn’t hunted tree squirrels. I’d shot literally hundreds of ground squirrels growing up in Southern California, but the closest I got to a tree squirrel was when one of these climbed up into the desert brush. When my wife and I moved back to the States after many years away, we were back in Cali for a couple years before my work took us to Indiana. As I looked for hunting options in my new home, and started scoping out deer hunting areas, the potential for squirrel hunting became clear. I read up (not much online content in those days), but didn’t have stellar success at first, taking a squirrel or two after a hard day in the woods. But at the same time I started getting first hand experience and (I hope) learning from it, I meet Randy Mitchell through one of the early airgun forums. He invited me to drive down to Kentucky to go squirrel hunting with him new years day, I think it was 2004 or 2005. And it turned out this guy knew what he was doing. I watched and learned more! I think I’m a pretty good squirrel hunter these days, and while I get to hunt a lotRead More →

I’ve been in South Dakota for the last few days with my FX Dreamline .25 caliber rifle after prairie dogs. A video on the trip just posted, and will be adding some more detailed information here on the website. YouTube is demonetizing and failing to recommend my videos, so please share, I appreciate the support!Read More →

Getting ready for a prairie dog shoot this weekend in South Dakota and received this FX Dreamline Tactical in .25 in time for the trip! The Dreamline is a rifle I’ve been waiting for, it comes in several variations but the .25 caliber tactical currently sitting in my gun rack is the design that resonated with me.  This version is very streamlined, with the air reservoir serving as the forestock. I selected the Hogue FDE adjustable stock and grip for my rifle, and the guys at Utah Airguns did another great hydro dip for me in the Tiger Stripe ACU pattern…… it looks great! The second rifle I’ve ordered through this shop and these guys do top rate work! Like all the guns in this line it implements the smooth twist barrel that FX is famous for, and the efficiency and efficacy gained though FX’s design of the air reservoir direct mount to the breech is impressive on first pass. I’ll do a full write up on the Dreamline on the range and out hunting soon. My rifle is fitted with the 16 round high capacity magazine, cycled with the side lever cocking mechanism which FX does particularly well. The rifle fills to 230 BAR using a proprietary fill probe and has two manometers for the reservoir fill pressure and the regulator. I’ll start getting sighted in tomorrow, and will update the website as I go. Sometime after my South Dakota trip will get a video posted over on YouTube.Read More →
