    Not Canada specific, but this could be a big issue for hunting/airguns...

    At least it will an issue if it becomes another "Gamo moment" like they did a few years back with the hog and PBA ammo.

    Personaly I think they're putting the accent too much on hunting. Not that there's anything wrong with hunting with airguns but now if you go on Crosman website it's only hunting this and hunting that, everything is camo (with a few airsoft and zombies scattered for good taste).
    I want more guns like the 1701P. A detuned, Discovery would make the ultimate plinker.

    I just watched the video on another Forum.... VERY impressive.... One shot between the eyes, the hog (45ish lbs?) dropped like a rock.... I would say the range was 30-35 yards, and the guy is a crack shot, not the least bit excited, not even breathing hard afterwards.... No adrenaline, just all business.... Shot placement rules....
