I was on my way back from a hunting trip, when a friend invited me to stop by his property to shoot a pig. Luckily I had my Texan Pig Rig with me!
I was on my way back from South Texas where I’d been hunting javalina and predators when my friend Shawn invited me to stop by one of his properties. He was out of state, and asked me to top off the deer feeders, and feel free to shoot any pigs if I saw them. My drive home to Minnesota would be delayed for a day, and out of nowhere I was on an airgun pig hunt with the Texan .357 big bore air rifle.
I’ve taken a lot of game with the Texan over the years, and it’s served me well in all its many caliber versions, I am particularly fond of the carbines. My gun was pre-carbine era, but it was cut down and recrowned by Edwin at Airguns of Texas, and is a compact (without the suppressors) or very quiet (with the suppressor) rifle.
I’ve been frequently asked if I would recommend the Texan, and what I think about AirForce as a company. The short answer is that, yes, I put these guns on my short list of production big bores. I think the Texan is a very good big game rifle. It is powerful, can be accurate once dialed in, and is modifiable with a lot of after market accessories. I think there are a few big bores to look at, with more coming out all of the time. AirForce as a company has been around for quite a while, and is a stable …. if a little slow moving. Maybe that’s in part responsible for the stability.
This video demonstrates the power and accuracy of these airguns to efficiently and ethically harvest game…… stop by and check it out!
