Gamo’s latest offering is an exclusive fastrepetition 10-shot pump-action air rifle powered by an 88 gram C02 cylinder.
I HAD BEEN lying sprawled out in the grass waiting for a rabbit to emerge from the blackberry bushes along the creek. I felt certain he wasn’t going to stay away from the sweet green grass he had been nibbling on when I carelessly tread on a dry twig and spooked him into cover.
Suddenly, the was a slight movement among the prickly tendrils about 20 metres away and the rabbits head appeared, eyes and ears twitching to alert the rodent to any danger. Slowly, I eased the rifle to my shoulder and took careful aim through the Nikko Nighteater scope. The rabbit raised his head scenting the air as his small, inquisitive head was quartered by the crosswires. My finger applied steady pressure to the trigger of the Gamo .177 C02 air rifle. Pfft!
I heard a whock as the pellet hit the target and the rabbit rolled over, kicked feebly once or twice and then lay still. I pumped the forend of the Gamo to feed another pellet into the barrel and was ready when another rabbit slowly emerged from the bush and hopped over to sniff at his dead mates body. Another head shot accounted for him too.?
